Background and releaseEdit

Dua Lipa co-wrote "Blow Your Mind (Mwah)" with Jon Levine and Lauren Christy, with Levine solely handling the production.[1] They wrote it in Los Angeles in February 2016.[2][3] After working as a model, Lipa was inspired for the song after being told that she needs to lose weight in order to be successful as a model. The collaborators decided to write about being comfortable in one's own skin.[3] The song was recorded at The Synagogue in Los Angeles, while the vocals were recorded at TaP / Strongroom 7 in London. Serban Ghenea mixed it at MixStar Studios in Virginia Beach, Virginia while it was mastered by Chris Gehringer at Sterling Sound in New York.[1]

Lipa announced the release of "Blow Your Mind (Mwah)" on 24 August 2016. It was released for digital download and streaming two days later as the fifth single from Dua Lipa, along with the pre-order of the album.[4][5] The song was sent for radio airplay in Italy on 2 September 2016.[6] The song was released to contemporary hit radio formats in the United States on 20 September 2016 as Lipa's first single in the country.[7][8] An acoustic version was released on 21 October 2016 alongside a remix extended play (EP) featuring remixes by Alex Metric, Karma Kid, Night Moves and Black Saint.[9][10] "Blow Your Mind (Mwah)" was included as the opening track on Lipa's 21 April 2017-released The Only EP.[11] It also appears as the sixth track on her debut album, released 2 June 2017.[12]

Music and lyricsEdit

Musically, "Blow Your Mind (Mwah)" is a disco and electropop song,[13][14] with tropical beats alongside dark moombahton and chambré tropical house elements.[15][16] It runs for 2 minutes and 58 seconds,[17][18] and has a structure of verse, bridge, chorus, post-chorus, verse, bridge, chorus, post-chorus, breakdown, chorus, post-chorus. The song is composed in 4
4
time
and the key of D minor, with a moderate groove tempo of 109 beats per minute and a chord progression of B–Gm–Dm–Csus. Lipa's vocals were categorized as indietronica and range from A3 to C5.[15][19] The lyrics discuss having the upper hand in a relationship and rejecting people who want others to change.[8][20]

The song begins slowly, with ethereal synths, and echoing tribal drums.[21][5] The first verse has empowerment themes and sees Lipa being secure with herself, even though at one time she was not. In the bridge, Lipa sings about her desire to pursue music and how people told her she was crazy for it, as well as commenting that people think she has changed but her aspirations have only gotten bigger.[3] The chorus has k-pop sawtooth synths, electro beats and synth-bass hits.[15][21] Vocally, Lipa blows a kiss at the end of the chorus and half-talks the post-chorus.[22] Lipa describes the chorus as being "in the heat of an argument," lyrically asking someone why they keep coming back to her if they dislike her aspirations and who she is. She eventually states that the person will love her blind, meaning that they have chosen Lipa because they would not want her any other way. The post-chorus sees Lipa wanting to live her life, not needing money or superficial stuff. In the second verse, Lipa addresses the lover, showing that they enjoy the arguments.[3]

Critical receptionEdit

Anna Gaca of Spin called the song "a short, bombastic number" with "equal parts club-ready sultriness."[5] Idolator's Rachel Sonis labeled it "feisty" and said that "it's playful, bubbly, and a perfect number to serve as her first official single in the US." She went on to state that the song "oozes confidence" and categorized the beat as "pulsing" and "infectious."[8] Mike Nied, also of Idolator, labelled the song a "flirty bop with a playful message."[22] For The Guardian, Graeme Virtue viewed it as "a slice of futuristic disco that slyly incorporates an actual kiss-off into its chorus".[13]

Ben Hogwood of musicOMH viewed "Blow Your Mind (Mwah)" as "a confident declaration of intent" and "outright feminine power," but criticized Lipa blowing a kiss in the style of Holly Valance, stating the song "spoils itself" with that aspect.[23] However, Raúl Guillén of Jenesaispop enjoyed the kiss, writing that it is "one of those silly details that you cannot later get out of your head" and called the chorus as a whole one of her "most effective."[24] The same website later named it the 73rd best song of 2016, praising the combination of a "forceful" bass and vocal performance as well as calling the chorus "casual and fresh," while concluding by stating the song is "frankly irresistible."[25] In The Line of Best Fit, Claire Biddles categorized the song's aesthetic as "high-heeled in a club" and called it "the most enticing moments in recent pop."[26] Of the same magazine, Laurence Day stated "it's fizzing with youthful energy and oozes cheeky joy from every refrain."[27]

The staff of Billboard called the song "cheeky" and stated that it "impressively showcases her attitude and nuanced voice."[28] In Renowned for Sound, Rachael Scarsbrook compared the song to Carly Rae Jepsen and wrote that it "gets people going." She concluded by stating, "[t]here isn't one negative way this track could be perceived."[29] For The Guardian, Hannah J Davies called "Blow Your Mind (Mwah)" "unapologetically in-your-face" as well as "strong and stylish."[30] Alim Kheraj of DIY viewed the song as "flirtatious," but criticized the lack of longevity, writing that it is "still immensely enjoyable, although over time [it's] lost some of [its] glittery sheen."[31] Rick Pearson from Evening Standard criticized the song, calling it "irritating in the extreme."[32] "Blow Your Mind (Mwah)" won Performance of the Year by an International Artist at the Wish 107.5 Music Awards.[33]
