Critical reception[edit]

Jessie Morris from Complex wrote; "The song if fueled by a very smooth, R&B beat that makes it feel like the trio is channeling their old school sound. As always, Ma's hard-hitting bars provide the perfect offset to Joe's verses while Ty Dolla Sign polishes the whole thing from the background with some incredibly silky ad-libs."[3] Emmanuel C.M. of XXL wrote that the song "sounds like it’s going to find it’s way on the charts too".[4] Rap-Up praised Ty Dolla Sign's vocals saying that he "lays down some smooth melodies".[5] OnSMASH wrote; "TY$ delivers a fire hook as usual, while Fat Joe and Remy Ma do what they do on the verse side of things."[6]
