Critical reception

David Jeffries of AllMusic highlighted it and reviewed 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] Critic DJBooth noted that "You don’t have Em on the hook of a stripper anthem like Throw That without some hit aspirations" and opined that the song was "squeezed in a box." [4]
