"Hot Male" and "Bounce" were featured in an episode of Ugly Betty.

A music video for the track "N.A.D.I.A. O.H." was released on the video-sharing website YouTube.

My Egyptian Lover. was released 22 January 2007 as the first single. It peaked within the top 50 and is still her highest charting single. Something for the Weekend followed over a year later released 8 March 2008 in an EP with Hot Like Wow.[5] Third single, N.A.D.I.A.
