Wanting Out[edit]

Despite not having an official single release, the B-side "Wanting Out" was released to digital media outlets in 2003 and managed to chart on the Billboard Hot Digital Tracks chart. However, due to the fact that digital downloads were not being tallied for the Billboard Hot 100 at the time, the song did not appear on the latter chart.
