Critical Reception

Popdust writer Andrew Unterberger stated: "After three straight ballads drained all the pep out of DNA after its explosive lead track, “Stereo Soldier” provides some much-needed exuberance back to the album, again courtesy of the TMS production team, who based on their work on this album should be some of the most in-demand producers in pop the next few years. An appropriately militaristic beat peppered with distorted horns and some quality cowbelling, with the group’s gorgeous harmonies laid on top, the song even comes close to a British approximation of Beyonce’s Afrobeat-indebted “End of Time,” which is nearly as cool as it sounds. (The group also seems to quote Bey’s “So in looooooove” sigh from “Party,” so perhaps they were just listening to a whole lot of 4 at the time.)

The lyrics are a little ridiculous–”You’re my stereo soldier” is a good thing, we guess?–but the group has a fun time trying to sell it with the song’s “Left! Right!” backing vocals, and after the occasionally overbearing seriousness of the previous three songs, a little silliness is a more-than-welcome presence." [1]

Lyrics

Jade:
Boy step a little closer
Cause I don't think you've heard these words before (yeah)
Lay me left and rock me right, baby lift me up so high
Take me to another world (ye-yeah)

Perrie:
Cause no one else will do (woo)
Don't wanna be by myself
I wanna be dancing with you

All:
Cause you're my stereo, stereo, stereo soldier
Oh oh, oh oh
My stereo, stereo, stereo soldier
Oh oh, oh oh

All I need is the beat in my feet, let me lose control
Get me loud, get me now, take my heart, baby take my soul
Right, left

Leigh-Anne:
Run the beat and blow my speakers
And make me feel like I'm the only girl (yeah)
The way we move is so in time
I'm the rare, got the skills to blow my mind
They don't make 'em like you no more (ye-yeah)

All:
I'm in heaven now, so in love
Lay your weapons down, and turn it up
Up, up, up, up (wooh)

And be my stereo, stereo, stereo soldier
Oh oh, oh oh
My stereo, stereo, stereo soldier
Oh oh, oh oh

All I need is the beat in my feet, let me lose control
Get me loud, get me now, take my heart, baby take my soul
Right, left

Jesy:
Can you save me?
Can you set me free?
Cause I need to feel alive
Oh we have to survive

Perrie:
Cause you changed me
And now I believe
And I need to feel alive
Oh we have to survive

All:
Stereo, stereo, stereo soldier
Oh oh, oh oh
My stereo, stereo, stereo soldier
Oh oh, oh oh

All I need is the beat in my feet, let me lose control (let me lose control)
Get me loud, get me now, take my heart, baby take my soul
Right, left
