The song received generally positive reviews from the critics. Bill Lamb commented that “the very swiftly interactive song from the album Rated R and shows a main lady image which is just what was required to shift past the unlucky Chris Brown part in her journey.

There is a pleasing swagger, but we’re never quite engaged”. Nick Leven commented that “the very quickly memorable instance in the album, Rated R”.
