"With Me", the first single in the UK, is an R&B song performed by American group Destiny's Child for their debut studio album Destiny's Child (1998). The song was produced by Jermaine Dupri and Manuel Seal Jr. and received a positive reception from music critics. According to the group "With Me" was meant to be an answer back to the Usher song "U Make Me Wanna". The song contains elements from Master P's song "Freak Hoes". It was not included on Destiny's Child's greatest hits album #1's.
