Dido's new single 'Let Us Move On'

Travel deals

Dido does one thing really well -- those slow, synthy ballads that provide a good backdrop for rapid-fire rappers who fill the space with their rhymes. Her new single "Let Us Move On" (Sony) is very similar to "Thank You," though instead of Eminem, she uses Kendrick Lamar to break up the pretty, but kinda bland atmospherics. She seems so lost in the song's dreaminess that the chorus feels born more from exhaustion than urgency. Luckily, Lamar swoops in to save the day and the back half of the song.
