This song is the second from the Soundtrack, Allmusic stated that "That includes Ashley Tisdale, who returns as thwarted musical theater queen Sharpay and is the soundtrack's star. A childhood musical theater veteran herself, Tisdale's chirpy, slightly saccharine voice is perfect (and sometimes, perfectly annoying) on songs like "Fabulous" a piece of diva-tastic pop that could also appear on the soundtrack to My Super Sweet 16. However, her turn on the Polynesian-flavored "bonus" track "Humuhumunukunukuapua'a" crosses the line from cute to far too cutesy, and could be the final straw for listeners past their early teens." The Jason Nevins remix of the song was launched as promotional song for the remix album High School Musical Hits Remixed, with a music video. The song is also featured in Disney Girlz Rock, Vol. 2.
