She wrote that Garrix's statement "she didn't want to release it" is "completely untrue and unfair".

He criticized the drop for its lack of originality, calling it "Scared to Be Lonely v2". Erik of EDM Sauce gave a similar review, writing: "The song will most likely not see the same level of success without [Ellie Goulding] as it is nothing absolutely outstandingly original." He also wrote that the song "has heaps of mainstream appeal" and "is exactly what the radio audiences in America currently look for in a release".
The accompanying music video was directed and produced by Damian Karsznia. The storyline features a young couple who were once in love and are currently struggling with the end of their relationship.
