|Shayne Ward singles chronology|
"If That's OK with You" is a song written by Savan Kotecha, Arnthor Birgisson and Max Martin for The X Factor winner Shayne Ward from his second studio album "Breathless". It was released as his fourth single overall, a double A-side with "No U Hang Up". Although due to be released on 19 August 2007 as the first single from "Breathless", its relative underperformance on radio triggered a decision to push the single back until its eventual release with a song that received a more favourable reaction, "No U Hang Up" on 24 September.
Moto Blanco remixes are also available.
Directed by Wayne Isham, the video shows Shayne and his friends hanging out at a pool party. The video was also a first to feature Shayne bearing his chest and doing dance choreography while drenched in water.
On September 30, the single peaked at No. 2 in the UK Singles Chart, beaten to the top by the Sugababes's "About You Now". It has sold 150,000 copies in the UK. It reached No. 1 in the Irish Singles Chart, a separate peak from that of "No U Hang Up" due to the digital singles being released separately in the Republic of Ireland. It remained atop of the Irish chart for a total of four weeks. The song also proved to be a success abroad, reaching #1 in Hong Kong.
In the UK, "If That's OK with You" sold 33,400 copies when it charted at No. 2 and a week later it fell to No. 3, selling 25,600 copies. The next week, it fell to No. 4 on sales of 16,000 and then fell to No. 10 with 12,000 sales. To date, it has sold 143,525 in the UK and finished as 2007's 42nd biggest seller.
