It was ranked number 37 on the best songs of 2010 by rolling stones. Despite the song receiving no major-label backing (due to Banks being dropped from Interscope the previous year), the song was a minor chart success in America, charting at number 49 on the Billboard Hot 100. Due to the moderate success of the single, Interscope attempted to re-sign Banks to the label; however, this failed when Banks announced he would sign to EMI. "Beamer, Benz, or Bentley" was also certified Gold by the RIAA.
The song is about a girl going back to Lloyd Banks' place in one of three of his automobiles, either his BMW, Mercedes-Benz, or Bentley.
The song features Juelz Santana on the second verse and chorus and is produced by Prime. Banks describes the song as a "club record with a lot of energy". Beamer, Benz, or Bentley was released with no major label promotion and reached number 49 on the Billboard Hot 100. In August 2010 the single was certified gold. After the song was certified gold, 50 Cent and Eminem pranked him and then presented him the plate while in backstage at The Home & Home Tour in September 2010.
