Speaking on his self-titled album, Benét told Rated R&B, “Every album I do, I don’t really give it a title until I’m able to live with it for a while after it’s recorded. This album, for me, when I lived with it and listened to it, was such a great representation of me musically.”

He continued, “Not only being on my own label, but just recording in my own studio on the time frame that I wanted to do it with the [people] I wanted to work with. The whole thing underscored everything about me creatively. It just seemed very appropriate for it to be self-titled.”

Eric Benét debuted at No. 7 on Billboard’s Top R&B Albums chart. It marked his first entry on the chart, which launched in 2012.
