A few days after its release, Pitchfork highlighted the track as its Song of the Day, praising his energetic delivery and adding that "he hits a new dance move every time the camera cuts back to him".The song entered the Billboard Hot 100 in May 2019, debuting at number 96.It later peaked at number 36.
