The album peaked at thirty-four on the U.S. Billboard 200 and reached the seventh spot on the R&B Albums chart.[4] The album was certified gold in September 1999, and reached platinum status in November 2002.[5]

Stephen Thomas Erlewine at Allmusic was critical of the album's running time and felt it was padded with some filler songs; however, he did call the work "a true step forward for 702."[2]
