"With Me", the first single in the UK, is an R&B song performed by American group Destiny's Child for their debut studio album Destiny's Child (1998). The song was produced by Jermaine Dupri and Manuel Seal Jr. and received a positive reception from music critics. According to the group "With Me" was meant to be an answer back to the Usher song "U Make Me Wanna". The song contains elements from Master P's song "Freak Hoes". It was not included on Destiny's Child's greatest hits album #1's because it was not a major hit.

Music video[edit]

In the video, Beyoncé appears as a mermaid in a bluish water scene. LaTavia appears as a genie in an orange-colored room. Kelly is a giantess in a city nightclub. LeToya is a "spider-woman" climbing a web made of metal chains with a purple background. The members appear together in gray outfits in one scene and in red dresses in a dark room covered with eyes. Jermaine Dupri appears watching the women in a slideshow. Beyoncé's younger sister Solange makes a cameo as well. The music video was never released to a video compilation nor to an enhanced CD, but is uploaded on YouTube in certain countries.

The song was exclusively released in EU markets. The single entered the UK Singles Chart on July 11, 1998 at number 19. In the Netherlands the song peaked at number 83, staying for three weeks on the Mega Single Top 100 charts.
