It was ranked number 37 on the best songs of 2010 by Rolling Stone. Despite the song receiving no major-label backing (due to Banks being dropped from Interscope the previous year), the song was a minor chart success in America, charting at number 49 on the Billboard Hot 100. Due to the moderate success of the single, Interscope attempted to re-sign Banks to the label;[3] however, this failed when Banks announced he would sign to EMI. “Beamer, Benz, or Bentley” was also certified Gold by the RIAA.
