Lewis Corner of Digital Spy gave the song a positive review stating:
It's been a rocky few months for Tinchy Stryder. After catapulting to the upper echelons of the charts with his debut LP and its subsequent spinoff singles, the pint-sized rapper suffered a textbook case of follow-up album syndrome, failing to replicate his success second time around. Determined to push forward, he's re-teamed with original chart-topping collaborators N-Dubz in a bid to regain his former chart glory. He and the Grime music trio's frontman/serial "Dappy hat's" offender Dappy split rhymes that reminisce on how far they've come in the biz - with girls, cars, gadgets and blingin' designer clobber now all at their disposal. "I'm a f**king star/ have you seen my car?" boasts Tinchy, while Dapz admits: "My momma thought I wouldn't make it/ But now she's living in a spaceship," over a watery stew of club beats and pulsating synths that lack any real oomph or lyrical resonance. Not to worry, Tinch, there's always that rainy day fund, right? RIGHT?
