The album's first two singles, "Baby, Be Mine" and "That's What Love Is", were R&B hits, peaking at No. 5 and No. 4, respectively, on the Billboard Hot Black Singles chart. The third single, "Crazy", reached No. 38 on the same chart.

Critical reception[edit]

The Rolling Stone Album Guide wrote that Love Confessions "works best when Howard emphasizes the jazzier side of her sound."[3] The Gazette called the album "superior late-night couch-crawling soul."[4]
