Critics stated that is a "return to the retro-pop of Title—albeit with the same verve and attitude that marked the Thank You era" and one of them wrote "the cute bop has a positive message and a campy spoken interlude towards the end."
A music video for the song was released on March 3, 2017 at Vevo, directed by Hannah Lux Davis. The video sees Trainor performing with a band in a warehouse. This is interspersed with scenes of women succeeding in several walks of life, including: a boardroom, wearing a football uniform, shooting archery and lifting wights. The video features no men, and was described by a critic as "Women can be whatever the hell they want to be. Oh, and in case you were wondering — no, there are absolutely zero men in this video. Only girls”.
