Critical reception[edit]

Robert Copsey of Digital Spy Blog gave the song a positive review stating:

"Original bad girl pon the radar," she spits over juttering percussion and minimal D&B beats courtesy of oh-so-trendy hitmaker Labrinth, whose production is brimming with earworm hooks - including an anthemic, hands-in-the-air "Woaah-Oh" chant. The result? When she informs us, "Know me she were neva soft ya know," reflecting on her ten years in the biz, it's hard not to think, 'You could have fooled us love, but we're glad to have you back!' 4/5 stars
