Chart PerformanceEdit

"Right Where You Want Me" peaked at #15 on the Billboard 200, beating the first week sales of McCartney's debut album, "Beautiful Soul."

The album sold less than 300,000 copies in the United States and sold over 600,000 copies worldwide.

Critical ReceptionEdit

Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic wrote: "Right Where You Want Me goes just a little bit too far in making McCartney into a mainstream star -- rather, it goes a little bit too far in making McCartney mature, removing the snap from his bubblegum by giving him too many ballads to sing and too much production to sing through. He amiably gives it his all, yet the problem doesn't lie with McCartney: it's with the material and its presentation, which is too reserved for tweens, too kiddie for adult contemporary. So, it's the equivalent of musical puberty: McCartney may be closing in on 20, but this finds him in his awkward phase where he's not a boy yet not a man, and the record will only please those fans who are sticking by him through their own awkward phases."

Evan Sawdey of Pop Matters wrote: "Being a typical pop album, however, there are a few catchy moments, usually in the choruses. The lead single title track is actually quite good and hooky, and you only feel cheated when you realize that it's actually the best song on the album... and it's the first track."

Rolling Stone gave the album two stars, writing: "The former All My Children star stretches his thin voice to the breaking point, usually over mellow acoustic guitars. Here he tries to prove he's a rocker. Rash prediction: It's not going to work. McCartney doesn't sound too seductive begging, "Stick the key in the ignition and light it up." Sorry, kid, but according to the Springsteen-Seger Act of 1975, you're required to "make her motor run."
