"Don't Call Me Angel" (officially titled "Don't Call Me Angel (Charlie's Angels)"), is a song by American singers Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus and Lana Del Rey. It was released on September 13, 2019, by Republic Records, as the lead single from the soundtrack to the film Charlie's Angels, based on the television series of the same name.[1]

Background[edit]

On June 27, 2019, it was announced that Grande, Cyrus and Del Rey had collaborated for the theme song of the 2019 film Charlie's Angels.[2] The song was written by Grande, Alma-Sofia Miettinen, Ilya Salmanzadeh, Del Rey, Max Martin, Cyrus and Savan Kotecha.

Critical reception[edit]

Vulture's Craig Jenkins wrote that the single "blends styles that sound fine alone but struggle to jell together ... such is the vastness of the space between the singers present."[3] Stacy Anderson of Pitchfork stated that the pop stars "meet at a lower creative common denominator than they’ve enjoyed lately" while adding that the song has "distinct flatness".[4] Writing for NME, Rhian Daly claimed it was "definitely not the follow-up to Destiny's Child's own Charlie's Angels theme" and that the collaboration was "far less potent".[5]

Commercial performance[edit]

"Don't Call Me Angel" debuted at number thirteen on the Billboard Hot 100 chart becoming Grande's 20th top 20 song, Cyrus' 14th and Del Rey's third.[6][7] The song also became Del Rey's highest charting song since "Summertime Sadness" which reached number six in 2013, as well as Cyrus' highest since "Malibu" which peaked at number ten in 2017. The track started at number two on the Digital Songs chart with 26,000 downloads sold within its first week, and number eleven on the Streaming Songs chart with 26.3 million streams. With 7.5 million airplay audience impressions, "Don't Call Me Angel" also debuted at number 33 on the Mainstream Top 40 following a complete tracking week.

Music video[edit]
