Bad Habits is the second NAV album to enter the Billboard chart after Reckless, which peaked at No. 8 in June 2018. A large portion of the new album's sales figures came from streaming, with 57,000 units attributed to streams of the album. This equates to just over 79m audio streams of songs from the album in its first week.

Sales of the album were also boosted by merchandise bundles sold via NAV’s official webstore, which included pre-sale access to purchase tickets to his upcoming tour. A deluxe edition of the album, featuring eight bonus tracks and a Future appearance, was released mid-week.

In an interview published by Pitchfork after the album release, NAV complained that he does not feel he is as famous as he deserves to be.
