The album garnered relatively positive ratings among music critics. Joey Akan of Pulse Nigeria described the album as a "singer-songwriter's album". He rated the album 4 out of 5 stars and was full of praise for the overall musical production.[2] In the same vein, Wilfred Okiche of 360Nobs was impressed with the album's input and Abudei's songwriting skills, stating that, "…And the bass is Queen is very relatable. Abudei’s song writing is a refreshing break from the norm, simple with a hint of mystery that does not encroach into fake deep territory,[...]The finish is of international standard and the record can easily find life beyond the shores of Nigeria if marketed as such."[3]
