The album sold over 500,000 copies in the US alone and reached #29 on the Billboard 200.

Release[edit]

The album was released in 1999 at the height of MTV pop culture. The first single, "Give It to You" received heavy radio airplay and rotation on MTV. The album was certified Gold months after its release.
