There was some negative feedback: '[Call
My Name] is one of those initially catchy songs that get forgotten
about in a month or so, average,' one unimpressed Twitterer said.
'Love the beat, shame Cheryl's voice is too bland to pull it off,' wrote another.
The single, written and produced by Harris, features one main line: 'How do you think I feel when you call my name'

The single is the first release from her third album A Million Lights, which is available to download on June 18.
The album features collaborations with Alex Da Kid, Lana Del Rey, Jim Beanz and newcomers Pantha and HyGrade and her manger will.i.am.
The single will be Cheryl's first release since The Flood in January 2011, which charted at No.18 in the UK charts.
Cheryl only released two singles from her second album Messy Little Raindrops – Promise This and The Flood – with the former being her second No.1 single.
During her two solo albums – which have both hit No.1 in the UK charts, Cheryl has only released a total of five solo singles.
