IBN Live gave the soundtrack four stars of five saying, “Race 2’s soundtrack is racy to the core. In a nutshell, the album is bound to be a hit. Let’s just hope the movie is as good as the soundtrack is!” Shresht Poddar, of Score Magazine, gave the album three out of five stars saying, “Personally, as a standalone album with no biases, it is enjoyable but it could have done with better lyrics. The tracks are foot-tapping and they would appeal to the masses. But if you compare it to Race, the album undoubtedly falls flat.” Goku, of IndiBeats! included the album in the ‘average’ category commenting that “No doubt Pritam has worked on the album well, there is a fair deal of DJing done, but something is amiss and hence the album is worth a hear, nothing more.”
