In the land of Alanis Morrisette's ironic, yeah, this will be ironic if it does well.
HOWEVER, in the land of correct meanings of words, writing a shitty pop tune like everything else on the radio to get popular...and then getting popular....not so much. That's not really the "opposite of what's expected."
Irony, gents, would be if you wrote a shitty, shitty pop song with no intention of it ever making it to radio, and then somehow it got picked up anyway. So really, what it seems to me, is you're full of shit....or woefully misinformed about what you're trying to do here.
Either way, that song is terrible.
