” Don’t Call Me Up “, a bouncy pop, breakup track, was written in one day. The lyrics are based on an experience from Mabel’s own love life. However she has stated that the lyrics are not directed at anyone in particular; instead, it’s about breakups generally.
The song has received mostly positive reviews from the music press. In his review for Clash magazine, Robin Murray called it a ” pop banger. ” He commented on the ” surging vocal, and the addictive, nuanced songwriting, combining to provide perhaps her most potent pop moment yet. ” Michael Cragg, writing for the online version of British newspaper The Guardian, wasn’t quite so enthusiastic. In his tracks of the weeks reviewed column, he said it was ” a song so risk-free it rips Shape of You’s plinky-plonky beat and features the lyric ‘ in da club ‘.”
