Steve 'Flash' Juon of RapReviews praised the production contributions from Happy Perez, Akon, Block of Rock and Fredwreck, and Bash's simplistic delivery of wordplay that shows "not only attention to detail but paint cinematic pictures as he casually flows along", saying that "he's not only made it his own but he's made it to the upper echelons of the pop charts without having to trade in his style - radio and video just latched onto it when they were finally hip to it. Hopefully they're hip to Super Saucy too - it's his best album since 2003 and has all the potential to keep dropping more and more hits year-round".[3] AllMusic's David Jeffries called the record "a party alternative to Nephew", praising Perez's "busy, hooked-filled, Texas magic on numerous tracks" and Bash himself for "adding some much needed freshness to the tired crooner/rapper combo", concluding that "with so much well-done good-time music, the crowd-pleasing Super Saucy is worth considering and generally 'bubbalicious'."[2]

Commercial performanceEdit

Super Saucy debuted on the US Billboard 200 chart at number 11, with first week sales of 48,000 copies,[4] becoming Baby Bash's highest charting album to date.[5]
