Well that certainly is out of the air. If they market it well and it picks up popularity it will certainly be in the top 40, who knows how high really; anything can happen in a few weeks.
I don't think it feels dated at all personally. It's not a transcendent single, but I think it will hit a vibe with a lot of people. It has a certain je ne sais quoi, is it Alicia Keys is it Whitney Houston, who the hell is it? You're right though, it is all about expectation.
