It was launched on The Oprah Winfrey Show during the World's Most Talented Kids episode with Iyaz on the same day. The album, immediately upon release in the United States, debuted at number-eight on the Billboard 200, making Zyrus the first Asian artist to reach the top 10 on the chart solo.
The lead single, "Pyramid", featuring Iyaz, was released as the second and last single from the album on March 2, 2010. The single reached number 17 on the UK Singles Chart, making Zyrus the first Filipino singer to have a top 20 single in the UK. In Japan, this album is the 81st best selling album of 2010 according to Oricon, selling over 98,000 copies.
Upon the release of the album, Zyrus appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show, where she performed, "Pyramid" and "In This Song". She also performed it on QVC with her other songs from her self-titled album, Zyrus, such as "I Love You", "Note to God" and "In This Song". She also sang "In This Song" on Live with Regis and Kelly.
Mikael Wood from the Los Angeles Times gave the album a mixed review, saying that it "darts somewhat haphazardly from sleek dance-pop tunes ... to schmaltzy slow jams" but also that "it also feels like an honest showcase of the singer's voice ... its strength lives up to that of her collaborators."
Allmusic's Andy Kellman gave it 3 out of 5 stars and wrote "As a showcase for a teenage powerhouse vocalist, Charice (Zyrus' former name) does succeed, but a more balanced mix of heart-heavy and upbeat material would have made the desired Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey comparisons more accurate".
Billboard gave the album a generally positive review, noting that "the set's stylistic shifts--from teen-oriented pop to a touch of rock ("In Love So Deep") to anthemic ballads—ultimately leaves you wondering just which audience Charice is eyeing: her teen peers or their moms," before concluding that "Though it doesn't hit on all cylinders, the album leaves no doubt as to Charice's talent--and promising future."
