Just No Other Way is Coco Lee's first full-English language album. It consists of pop and R&B songs. It features the singles, "Before I Fall In Love" (from the Runaway Bride soundtrack), "Can't Get Over" featuring Kelly Price, "Wherever You Go", and her largest U.S. Billboard hit so far, "Do You Want My Love". While all three singles received a warm reception, only one single charted. "Do You Want My Love" became a moderate hit, peaking at number 49 on the U.S. Hot Dance Club Play chart. As of June 2003, Just No Other Way only sold 40,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen Soundscan.[1]

Just No Other Way was a relative success in Asia, having three top ten singles (including one number one single) in the MTV Asia Hitlist. As soon as "Before I Fall In Love" topped the charts as her breakthrough single, Lee became the first female Asian singer to top both the Asia Hitlist and Top 100 Asia Singles Airplay. Her next single, "Do You Want My Love", peaked at number two for six weeks, while her last single, "Wherever You Go," managed to peak at number three. This is another record for Lee, becoming the only Asian artist to have three singles enter the top three in the Asia Hitlist.
