Critical reception[edit]

Allmusic editor David Jeffries called this song completely unsurprising, with rock-solid hook.[2] Ken Copabianco described the song: His "sex talk is good-natured and slyly insightful about love ("What Them Girls Like")"[3] XXL Magazine wrote a mixed review: "Elsewhere, he’s just straight reaching—“What Them Girls Like,” for instance, where, despite taking a cue from 2000’s Mel Gibson chick flick What Women Want, there’s no real solid connection established between the film and the actual song."[4]

Music video[edit]

The music video premiered on Yahoo! Music on September 11.[5] The video takes cues from the Mel Gibson movie "What Women Want".[6] The music video premiered on BET and later appeared at #80 on the Notarized: Top 100 Videos of 2008 countdown. Comfort Fedoke, DeRay Davis, Tyrese Gibson, Teairra Mari, Kristia Krueger, Suelyn Medeiros, Amber Rose, Joe & Gavin Maloof and La La made cameo appearances in the video. There is a 40-second intro before the music starts in the video.
