Composition and lyricsEdit
"I Don't Love You" is a synthpop, disco, and pop rock song of three minutes, twenty-six seconds. The lyrics were written by McCoy and produced by War, CTK720, and American House Mafia. The lyrics are about a girl who constantly says "I love you" when the boy doesn't like her. The bridge also has a comedic line, which says "Do you like my llama?/My llama/My l-l-l-llama/Llama drama/My llama...". Most critics gave the bridge a positive review.
Most critics gave the song positive reviews, mainly because of the humorous bridge. "The llama fiasco [the bridge] reminds me of Cher Lloyd's 'Want U Back" helicopter dilemma." McCoy said "I tried to be loose when I made this song, and was I? I think I was. But then again, it's up to you guys what you think."
