"Blow Your Mind (Mwah)" is a song by English singer Dua Lipa from her eponymous debut studio album (2017). It was released on 26 August 2016 as the album's fourth single. The single debuted at number 50 and peaked at number 30 on the UK Singles Chart; in the United States, it reached number 72 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Lipa's first song to chart in the country. It also topped the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart, becoming Lipa's first number-one single on that chart.

Critical reception[edit]

Anna Gaca of Spin called it "a short, bombastic number with echoing drums and equal parts club-ready sultriness and onomatopoeia kiss-off."[2] Idolator's Rachel Sonis labeled it "feisty" and went on to say that "it's playful, bubbly, and a perfect number to serve as her first official single in the US."[3]

Music video[edit]

The music video for "Blow Your Mind (Mwah)" was directed by Kinga Burza and premiered on 12 September 2016.
