The lead track from the single first appeared on the charts June 1, 2006 and stayed on the charts through August 2006. What About Us had charted in DMC Update chart rising to #4 on the Hip Hop chart. In the DJ Pages chart at #7 in the World and UK Hip Hop charts and #17 in the Mainstream Chart and #19 in the World and UK RnB Charts. It had broken in at #53 on the Europe Chart. It has also been recognized by Radio 1 FM88 as #7 in their World Hip Hop chart.
For those who like UK Garage music- Karl Brown's garage track at the end of the CD has alot of support. He played it on 1XTRA in September 2006 and it has been hitting the airwaves ever since.
“What About Us- CD Single” is armed with a selection of remixes; The New York / LA Mix is produced by bandleader Reuben MacCalla (LA) and features Crisis (New York). There’s a crisp beat that shows off the sensual vocals on this classic West Coast arrangement, whilst New York / Puerto Rican rapper Crisis dives in for the middle section with an unforgiving flow.
From the beaches of LA to the streets of London comes the Urban 2Darc Mix produced by UK production maestro 2Darc, who along with his partner Charles Temenu are known for their remixes of Usher, Sunshine Anderson & Monroe (Sony UK). This UK version includes a UK rap from the point of view fo an other person "trying to get the girl".
Reuben also produces the Slow Jam and Original RnB Mixes. If you prefer a more chilled out vibe, the Slow Jam mix is sure to deliver with its reflective mood. Again another Reuben MacCalla production with a vocal interpretation that portrays a sense of hopeful reconciliation
The RnB version features a smooth piano based arrangement that builds to a crescendo along with the song’s light and airy vocal arrangement. This version has attracted a lot of attention in Japan.
New York producer Dynas-D has produced the Reggae-ton Mix. He has remixed artists like Boys II Men, Rosie Gains & Le Clic as well as producing numerous tracks for MTV & VH1. The mix is a masterful blend of both Reggae-ton & Pop productions that give this version a definite radio crossover potential.
Finally, there is a UK garage dance mix we mentioned earlier by Karl "Tuf Enough" Brown. Karl is know for his unique style and applies this to this club track.
