She’s back!!! After keeping us watering at the mouth for about four years, Annie‘s back with her new single, “Girlfriend” produced by Brian Higgins and Xenomania. The best thing is, there’s no “HEY HEY, YOU YOU” at the beginning of the track like other “Girlfriend” songs you may know. Just retro-friendly dance beats! It’s generally nice and flows well. The full name of the song is “I Know Your Girlfriend Hates Me,” but that would give away the whole plot of the song. Basically, Annie’s being a bit of a home wrecker here. What an Anniemal, that woman.

Not only does the song pass Pop Rule Number One (“All pop from Norway and Sweden is perfection”), but passes Pop Rule Number Two with flying colors (“Songs involving phones, or merely their ring-a-dinging or ring-ringing are 99% pop perfection”).
