Critical reception[edit]

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

Now in the January/February Q1 period where exciting releases are few and far between, her latest effort 'Crying For No Reason' shines brightly in an otherwise desolate pop landscape. That's not to say the song itself - a stunning breakstep ballad about having a weepy moment for no particular reason ("I felt strong but am I breaking now?" she asks over crashing electro drums) - isn't worthy of such attention, as it really is one of the best ballads we've heard in quite some time. 5/5 stars.[1]
