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

Leigh-Anne:
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)

(Hold up) (Stormzy: Check it)

Stormzy:
When them boys taught 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 women lookin' showerin' your Bimms
They call me cocoa butter 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 race
But when you found me I was dim

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'd have to build in 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 ever lettin' go
For as long as I'm alive
You know 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 ride girl

Little Mix (Jesy):

But I got the, I got the, I got the power (Ooh-ooh-ooh)
You make rain (You make it rain, yeah)
But I make it, I make it, I make it shower (You make it rain, yeah)
You should know, I'm the one who's in control (Leigh-Anne: I'm in control now)
I'll let you come take the wheel (Take the wheel) long as you don't forget (You don't forget)

Little Mix:
Ohhh (I got the, I got the power)
Ohhh (I got the, I got the power)
Ohhh (I got the, I got the power)
