Trivia[edit]

  • Original producer of "Truth Or Dare (Interlude)" Mario Winans re-produced it as a full length track "Dolly Baby" for rapper Lil' Cease's 1999 album "The Wonderful World of Cease-a-Leo", also using a sample of Pam's vocals from the Interlude as its chorus. Despite it being a sample, she is also listed under vocals in the album's credits. The remix version of "Trippin" sampled from "4, 3, 2, 1" by LL Cool J and Canibus feat. Method Man, Redman and DMX
