"It's Only Us" is a song released in 1999 by British singer Robbie Williams, as a double A-side with a cover of "She's the One". Unlike "She's The One", "It's Only Us" was a brand new recording made for the Fifa 2000 soundtrack, and as such did not originally appear on I've Been Expecting You, though was eventually added to its 2002 reissue (replacing Jesus In A Camper Van due to copyright issues).

The single became Williams' second number-one single in the United Kingdom, spending one week at number one. "It's Only Us" is the theme song to the EA Sports release of FIFA 2000, something which Williams agreed to on the condition that his team, Port Vale F.C., was included in the game. The video features a computer animated Williams as part of the England football team and flying through space. The song also appears on Now That's What I Call Music! 45 in the UK. The official soundtrack to FIFA 2000, entitled FIFA 2000: The Album, was released in 1999 and "It's Only Us" was the "official single" from it. The music video for the song also featured as an Enhanced CD feature on the album.

Chart performance[edit]

The double A-side single became Williams' second number-one solo single in the United Kingdom, selling over 400,000 copies being certified Gold by the British Phonographic Industry.[1] The single also managed to break into the top three in New Zealand.
