Digital Spy gave the following review of the song: "When he's not high as a kite, it seems B.o.B. has quite the interest in the arts. "She says that I'm her favourite, cause she admires the art - Of Michelangelo with the flow," he declares on his latest single 'So Good' - and the referencing of history's finest artists doesn't stop there. "Picasso with the bars, She's well put together like a piece by Gershwin," he adds about his latest love interest over an easy-going mix of chilled piano and head-nodding beats. While it's an ambitious claim to glide high with Renaissance figureheads, B.o.B's fun-loving attitude and care-free coolness does evoke a certain popular Michelangelo - if we're talking about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles version, that is."
