In the United Kingdom, it reached the top spot on December 28, 2018, becoming the last number one of 2018.

Background

Max told Idolator, "I think for me personally, I have a lot of sides to me. I think everybody has a lot of sides to them and it's basically about a girl who's not afraid to show all of her sides and her dualities, and about a guy loving all those sides. She's a girl who's misunderstood in the relationship, and she's basically being told she's psycho and she's out of her mind when she's feeling it, but really she's an outspoken girl and she's speaking her mind. And that's how I am in real life."[3]

Critical reception

Writing for Billboard, Jon ALi called the song an "instantly addictive" slice of pop.[4]

Music video

The music video was directed by Bengali-American filmmaker Shomi Patwary and released on August 27, 2018.[5]
