Allmusic 3.5/5 stars[5]
Billboard (positive)[6]

Billboard's writer Ayala Ben-Yehud gave the album a positive review, writing "Banda diva Jenni Rivera has trademarked a swingy, midtempo groove on her brass-heavy tunes and a cackling bluntness that other regional Mexican singers of her generation don't even approach."[7] Allmusic gave the album 3.5 out of 5 on Jenni, calling it "her best work in the past decade".[5]

In its first week of release, the album entered on the Billboard 200 albums chart at number thirty-one in the United States and number one on the U.S. Top Latin Albums.[8] It moved 16,000 copies in its first week at retail giving Rivera her first Top Latin Album number one album and best sales week ever.[9]
