Critical Reception Edit

Upon the release, "Chasing Time" received universal acclaim from both audience and music critics with many praising Banks' singing skills, besides the rapping. Mike Wass of Idolator said "is something of a return to form for the struggling femcee. She switches things up by singing (as opposed to rapping) the vast majority of the song and genuinely shines in the soaring chorus. Can someone please build Azealia a time machine, so she can start again and launch this album in a non-farcical manner?". Billboard called the song "catchy, crisp new single". Nina Corcoran of Under the Gun Review said "her long-form notes over the dance club beats show Banks is truly ready to run the gamut. If she wanted to prove she’s more than just a New York girl who can speak faster than your 13-year-old cousin, she is." Rolling Stone praised the production but criticized the lyric content, noting "the keyboards stab, the beats trip along wonderfully and the vocals surge but Banks doesn't smooth over her lyrical intricacy or emotional complexity, slinging lines like You think I'm starting new relations/I'm just apart and need my space and/Time to myself, ventilation while re-imagining I Will Survive in her own all-fire image."

Music Video Edit
