“Trash Lounge” noted that “the lyrics might not express creativity , however it carries sufficient charm and summer-friendly making to notice it through”. “Unreality Shout” wrote that “showcases none of the earlier heard pop brilliance and rather we’ve started offered one more boring , indigestible part of boy-band pop that’s become drenched in terribly saccharine niceness on the lyrical face”.
