"Still" is the third single from Macy Gray's debut album, On How Life Is (1999). The song details a troubled relationship between a woman and a man who is abusive towards her.

In the UK, "Still" became Gray's second consecutive top forty hit on the UK Singles Chart, peaking inside the UK top twenty at number eighteen. It remains one of her biggest hits so far, the only two to surpass it were previous single "I Try" and the Fatboy Slim collaboration "Demons". In the U.S. the single did not fare nearly as well as "I Try" and failed to chart on the Billboard Hot 100. "Still" did, however, manage to chart on the Adult Top 40 at number thirty-two. And in New Zealand, the song was a big hit, reaching the top ten and peaking at number 8.

"Still" was released on two CD formats in the UK and featured remixes of both "Still" and "I Try" along with a live version of the latter.
