Release and reception

The album peaked at five on the U.S. Billboard 200 and reached the second spot on the R&B Albums chart. The album was certified gold in June 1999 and double platinum by August 2000.

Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic stated that the album included "more inventive productions and a stronger set of songs" than Ginuwine's previous work. Erlewine gave credit to producer Timbaland's instrumentals but still remarked that "Ginuwine remains the star of the show, thanks to his rich, inviting voice."


"—" denotes releases that did not chart.
1 "Same Ol' G" was released as a single from the soundtrack to the film Dr. Dolittle and later added to the track list of 100% Ginuwine.
