Critical Reception

Digital Spy writer Lewis Corner stated: "Vroom vroom. Little Mix fire up their motorbike engines for this Wild West-meets-Tomorrowland Festival blowout. Twangy guitars give way to a storming electronic chorus – and we need to speak about the girls' vocals on this track. It's their most ferocious delivery with raspy growls and big declarations on the hook. You can almost smell the burning rubber on the roads from them revving up their engines." [1]

Lyrics

Perrie:
Hold up, no, you didn't bow-bow
I ain't the chick to walk behind you 'round town
Just cause you're packin', packin', whoop, down south
That don't mean I'm ever gonna take it lying down, baby, oh

Jesy (Little Mix):
I'm a machine when I do it
I'll be catching fire, gasoline when I do it (Uh-huh)

Perrie:
Just cause you're packin', packin', whoop, down south
That don't mean I'm ever gonna take it lying down, baby

Jade:
You're the man but I got the, I got the, I got the power
You make rain but I make it, I make it, I make it shower
You should know I'm the one who's in control
I'll let you come take the wheel long as you don't forget

(Who got the power)
(I got the, I got the power)
(I got the, I got the power)
(I got the, I got the power)
(Hold up)

Jesy:
My turn

I make this look easy
Tick-tick-boom like gasoline-y
Yeah, they call me Lamborghini
Cause I know just what I'm worth

Z-z-zero to a hundred
B-b-body make 'em stutter
Start my engine, push the button
Cause I'm gon' be coming first, ow

Leigh-Anne (Little Mix):
(Oooh) Yeah, I'm a machine when I do it (Ooh-ooh)
(Oooh) I'll be catching fire, gasoline when I do it (Ooh-ooh-ooh) (Uh-huh)

Jade:

Stormzy:
When them boys talk loose
And tell you power's for a king huh?
You just play it cool
And tell em power's not a thing
You look em in the eye and say
"I know I'm not a guy
But see there's power in my loses
And there's power in my wins"

Independent woman look to shower in your Bimms
They call me coco but I'm mad
You can't be powderin' my skin
And you don't need to spend another hour in the gym
You know I'm blinded by his grace
But when you found me I was dim

And we'll be countin' down the years
Yeah I'm about this
All them dirty secrets that we share
I'll clear the browsers
We the type to build on our careers
And share the houses
You can be a woman and the boss and wear the trousers
At the same time

(with Leigh-Anne: You should know)
That I ain't never lettin' go
But as long as I'm alive
Then I'll be sponsorin' your pride
You know there's power in the couple
(Perrie: As long as you don't forget)
Let me compliment your vide girl
