The album sold over 109,000 copies in its first day of release, eventually selling 234,662 copies in its first week according to Hits Daily Double, placing it at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200 albums chart. According to Soundscan, the album has sold over 935,000 copies to date. In early 2007, it was certified Platinum for over one million copies shipped domestically. The album is currently Danity Kane's best-selling album.
The band's debut lead single from the album was "Show Stopper" with Yung Joc. The song was followed by the moderately successful ballad, "Ride for You". The label wanted to release "Hold Me Down" as the third single, however the band lobbied for "Right Now" or "Want It". No definitive answer surfaced for the lack of singles on the debut album but this is attributed to management issues with the next single decision and the less than stellar chart performance of "Ride for You". Further singles were cancelled and Danity Kane returned to the studio in 2007 to record new material for their second album.
