The album received generally positive reviews. Neil Z. Yeung of Allmusic stated, "There's not much here to hail a return-to-form renaissance, but for those in need of a solid dose of the familiar, I Wanna Thank Me is pure Snoop, complete with sly boasts, smooth production, and nostalgic, kush-loving comforts."

Commercial performance

I Wanna Thank Me debuted at number 76 on the US Billboard 200 with 9,000 album-equivalent units,[6] becoming his second lowest-charting album on the chart after his 2018 gospel album Bible of Love.
