Chart PerformanceEdit

Critical ReceptionEdit

Andy Kellman of AllMusic affirmed that Ne-Yo still persists with his "tried-and-true songwriting approach" which ensures that "not one song is poor", but felt that a majority of the tracks on the album fails to stand out; most "[blurring] into one another" and lacking distinction. He selected "U Deserve" and "On Ur Mind" as the notable hits on the record.

Elias Leight from Rolling Stone was unimpressed with Ne-Yo's decision to produce "safe" trap-based radio hits, which he deemed "perfectly of-its-moment; profoundly unmemorable."

He wrote that Ne-Yo fails to "write his way out of the ordinary with another sterling hook" on his "standard-issue rap/R&B hybrids", nevertheless praising the "pan-Caribbean rhythms" on the album where "[Ne-Yo's] winning airiness returns.
