Mixed reactions to this track from Robbie's new album! It's been called out as racist, sexist and dated, while a spokesperson for exiled oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky dubbed it "s**t" for its portrayal of oligarchal behaviour. Robbie took to Twitter to clarify that it's "definitely not about [Russian President} Mr Putin", it's simply about Russians being "ridiculously good partiers". Whatever your views, you might want to check it out for the gorgeous frockery, flocks of ballerinas, and lyrics that put Laboutin/high-falutin'/Rasputin together. The gauntlet has been thrown down for a a witty response from Russia's pop performers!
