Digital Spy gave the song 3/5 stars saying that "Lead single 'Change' is a typically snazzy Ronson production — there are horns and lightly funky beats as you'd expect".
Angryape.com had this to say about the song "newcomer Daniel Merriweather is already well on his way to a top 10 hit before this single has even touched radio airwaves. Perhaps best known as the "voice" on Ronson's 2007 hit 'Stop Me' or Wiley's Cash In My Pocket,".
Thebeatreview.com gave the song 5/5 stars saying that it was "a pretty decent R&B song filled with stumping basses, satisfying drums and incorporated with some piano and saxophone/trumpet/horn. It's funky, soulful yet proving to be very catchy".
The Daily Music Guide gave the song 3/5, commenting that the "results possibly aren't as mind-blowing as perhaps the PR says on the tin" but is "a decent enough pop song".
