The album peaked at four on the U.S. Billboard 200 and reached the top spot on the R&B Albums chart. The album was certified gold in August 1992 and eventually reached triple-platinum status by April 1995.
Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic said in his review that the soundtrack was "actually better than the film itself," and stated that "most of the album is first-rate contemporary urban soul, hip-hop, and new jack swing."
