"Belongs to You" is a mid-tempo ballad in which the male narrator describes the personal sacrifices that he had made in his life for his lover.

Jim Malec of The 9513 gave the song a "thumbs down" review. He stated in his review that the song "feels like an exercise in mediocrity–a fact audible in Mates’ delivery."
The music video was directed by Steven Goldmann.
