The song won a Grammy Award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration, and Eve eventually went platinum.
One of the record's strengths, cited in several reviews, was Eve's exploration of her singing voice in addition to her rapping skills.
In November 1999, Eve featured on Missy Elliott's single "Hot Boyz (Remix)" along with Nas, Lil Mo and Q-Tip.
The song became a hit, spending 18 weeks at number one on the Hot Rap Singles from November 16, 1999 to March 7, 2000, and reaching number 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 .
"I was a singer before I started rapping," Eve said in a Ruff Ryders press release, "so on this album I wanted my audience to hear more of my vocal skills".
Eve's third album, Eve-Olution, was released in summer 2002 (see 2002 in music) and peaked at number six on the Billboard 200.
She also provided background vocals on the song "Ain't Sayin' Nothin' New" from the same album.
