She also gave the song four out of five stars. Joe Gross from Rolling Stone gave the song a mixed review and said that the gospel choir backs the singer up like “its Memphis ’67” and said that “If ninth-graders still made mixtapes for their crushes, this would be on all of them.” He gave the song three of of five stars. Isabel Pearson of Nouse gave the song a positive review during her album review, calling the song a “euphoric, slow building love-song that’s raw and undeniably one of the best tracks on this album.” Sarah Milton of The Upcoming lauded the song, calling it “electrifying with its blunt honesty and exquisite gospel influence.”
