Released off Swift's 2019 album of the same name, the song reached the number-10 position on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It was also nominated for a Grammy Award for Song of the Year in 2020. 

Produced by Jack Antonoff, the song was praised by critics. In 2023, Rolling Stone named it the seventh best Taylor Swift song out of her entire discography. "When she hits those high notes in the chorus, it’s like the sensation at the top of the roller coaster when you realize you’re zooming all the way down," the outlet wrote.
