A Bobby Brown Megamix was released as a single to promote the album, however it was not included within the album's tracklisting. The UK and European version of the megamix was called "The Bobby Brown Freestyle Megamix" and was produced by Rita Liebrand. The Australian version was called "The Every Little Hit Mix", and was also released as a "B side" on the European version of the Roni single.
