"Say You'll Be Mine" is a song by Steps, released as the group's eighth single as a double-A-side, along with a cover version of Kylie Minogue's "Better the Devil You Know". Steps cover of "Better the Devil You Know" was later included as the opening track on their third studio album Buzz but the song didn't serve as a lead single. A limited edition of the single was released as a digipack that was included with a doubled sided poster in the sleeve, one side was the group pictured in their dance outfits and the other side shows the groups in their costumes and the different scenarios that are shown throughout the music video.
