Song information[edit]

The music video for the single was released on television in the UK in the last three weeks of July 2006, and the single was released on 14 August 2006, peaking at #14 on the UK Single Charts. Unusually for singles at the time, downloads were repressed to tie-in with the week of the physical release. The single was not commercially released outside of the UK and Ireland, and has only been available on import in Europe. "Lipstick" was chosen as the main promotional song for the Japanese release of Fired Up. The single was quite successful in Japan, even managing to peak at #2 on the Tokio Hot 100's International Chart.
