Some of Rodrigo's Instagram following couldn't get behind her latest video.

"love liv but this song felt very inappropriate, which is fine, but she does have a lot of younger listeners. and for me the only part i liked about this song when she said, my brain goes ahhhh... that's it" one follower wrote.

"I’m ngl, this was probably her worst song she’s put out. It’s a very generic pop song. It doesn’t highlight her talent very well, and doesn’t feel very creative," another weighed in.

"Your first miss love that you’re trying new sounds though," a follower reasoned.

"The song is not good at all, kinda disappointed with this second single," a listener said.

"This song sucks brutally but it's still you so it's great ?," another listener wrote.

"her first miss ??still good and i’m gonna force myself to like," another listener said.

"Love you Olivia but the song was pretty mid," a follower told the "brutal" singer.

"yeah this is bad ?," a listener determined.

"girl what is this ?," a follower asked.

"it’s bad I’m sorry," a listener apologized.

"It’s kinda mid," another proclaimed.
