From the Album
• Normani divulged to Kode in an interview in October 2017, when asked to share information on the collaboration:
"Khalid and I have been wanting to work together for some time. We actually got into the studio and were excited about a record we wrote together along with Taylor Parks. It was all one huge vibe session. We wanted to create something that our peers would fall in love with. I remember him telling me "I want this to be my favorite record, if I were listening, I want it to be something I vibe with that's just dope," which is something I relate to because I listen to our song every day. Issa vibe. But the greatest part of it all is that were genuinely two friends that created something special that were so proud of. We're in two different countries on tour but we still text each other sometimes like, "but that record though...""
• Hugh McIntyre of Fuse deemed the song "a laid-back R&B affair so mature it's difficult to believe the artists behind it are so young and still just getting started in their respective careers".
In the United States, "Love Lies" debuted at number 43 on the Billboard Hot 100, opening with 22,000 downloads and 11.7 million streams in its first week. After the pair performed on the Billboard Music Awards on May 20,2018 "Love Lies" entered the top 40 on the Hot 100, moving from number 47 to 36. It has so far reached a peak of number 25 on US BillBoard Hot 100, after 21 weeks of its release back in February 2018.
