Critical reception[edit]

David Jeffries of AllMusic highlighted it and overviewed it positively: "Still in the club, "Throw That" sits in the same booth but seeking "higher mileage" with "I throw this, I throw this dick on you girl" as its brutish hook."[1] Slava Kuperstein of HipHopDX thought that the song was skippable.[2] Phillip Mlynar of Spin was acclaiming noting that it expertly channels the disorderly energy of iconic late-'90s Tunnel-era anthems.[3] DJBooth noted that "You don’t have Em on the hook of a stripper anthem like Throw That without some hit aspirations" and critic thought that the song was "squeezed in a box."[4]
