Composition[edit]

"Ciao Adios" is a "dancehall-inflected"[4] song.

Critical reception[edit]

"Ciao Adios" has received favorable reviews from critics. Steph Evans of Earmilk gave the single a positive review, writing "'Ciao Adios' is relatable, catchy and will probably get stuck in your head. And if there's one drawback from the release of this single, it's that we can't see it performed live with Anne-Marie’s fun stage antics."[5] CelebMix also responded to the song positively, writing: "You may expect a break-up anthem based on the content of the song but...It is actually not. 'Ciao Adios' is, similar to her previous anthem 'Alarm', a catchy, feel-good tune that will leave you screaming 'Ciao adios I'm done' at the top of your lungs even though you may not feel like that at all. It is empowering and it will be stuck in your head for the next couple of days and weeks."[2]

In the UK and Ireland "Ciao Adios" reached numbers 9 and 13, respectively,[7] the song gave Marie her first solo top 10 single in the UK.[8][9]
