All In My Head (Flex) is the second single by Fifth Harmony included in their second studio album, 7/27, which debuted on May 27, 2016. The track samples the song "Flex" by Jamaican DJ Mad Cobra which itself interpolated elements of The Temptations' "Just My Imagination".

BackgroundEdit

Dinah Jane Hansen wrote what this song meant to her: "You can never have enough REGGAE in your life ! The vibe and rhythm to this I feel represents me best as a South Pacific Islander ❤️ !! this is just one of those feel-good songs that you can't help but jam to, no matter where you're at or who you're with! So imma need you to BUMP THIS ONE hella loud when you're out and about! lol The overall Melody is so memorable you'll find yourself singing it everywhere you go, ESPECIALLY with Fetty Wap's ridiculously, amazing catchy tunes! Lyrically it's FUN & FLIRTY, so don't take it serious because remember it's all in your head! wink wink 😂 -Dinah Jane ps: one more thing I forgot to mention we co-wrote this song so it's extra special to us."

The song debuted as an encore performance of the Billboard Music Awards 2016, exclusively on XFinity.

Critical Response Edit

"Say hello to the second official single from 7/27. It's the perfect follow-up to 'Work From Home' with its urban-pop undertone, which is brought to life with light reggae guitar plucks and crisp clicks. "I want to feel you on / Want to feel you under my body," they sing on the chorus, leaving everyone in their path hot and flustered. Oh and prepare to have "Oooh FLEX!" stuck in your head for the rest of the summer.", according to Lewis Corner of Digitalspy.

"This reggae influenced track has a chorus that makes us want to dance — because damn Dinah — but it doesn’t seem to really hit the mark. Fetty Wap’s smooth verse adds a little something special to the track, but it doesn’t quite rank with our favourites.", according to Brittany Goldfield Rodrigues of ANDPOP.

Dinah (Fetty Wap):
Flex, time to impress
Come and climb in my bed
Don't be shy, do your thing (Heey, so bae!)
It's all in my head, wow

Fetty Wap:
I wanna flex with you, babe
I'm tryna chill with you
Throwing bills at you
While we flexing boo, babe
Show me different moves
And I love your groove

Cause it's meant to be, babe
And make history, babe
And you the one for me
And I'm the one for you
So just flex for me, babe
Why

Curtains like waves closing in all around us
Dimming the lights just so that they don't blind us
So tongue and cheek when we're laying on roses
But you're touching my skin and leaving me hopeless
