Critical response[edit]

Nic Maher of Luna magazine called the song "quite catchy" and wrote, "autotune saves this femme fatale from what would otherwise be a disastrous release."[1] Layla Clarke of The AU Review wrote, "We Run the Night is as epic as it is euphoric, with an insanely infectious breakdown that's guaranteed to throw the crowd into overdrive."[2] After listening to the song, a writer for Beat magazine felt Brown should stick to being a DJ because "a singer she is not!".[3]
