"Wrong Club" is a song by British duo The Ting Tings and their first single off of their third studio album, Super Critical.[1] It was well received by music critics, who praised the song's disco feel. The song reached #2 on Billboard's Dance Club Songs chart, also entering the Adult Top 40 and Japan Hot 100.

Background and release[edit]

Katie White, the band's lead singer, told Entertainment Weekly that "The song’s about being in the club at four in the morning, when everything you’ve taken has worn off and you’ve just realized what a shitty club you’re in, and what terrible music. I think everyone’s been there. You’re not drunk anymore and you’ve got beer all down you and you’re just re-evaluating your life." [2]

The song was released on 3 June 2014 via an audio video on YouTube.[3] On the same day, Billboard published an article announcing the song's release.[1] On 15 August the song was officially announced as the lead single from Super Critical.[4]

Critical reception[edit]

Jason Lipshutz of Billboard gave the song a highly positive review, calling it "euphoric" and saying it was "a single that shimmies forward with the disco thump of Daft Punk's mega-hit 'Get Lucky.'"[1]

Music video[edit]
