The group released one single, "I Like It" (sung originally by Pete Rodriguez), originally recorded and included in the soundtrack for the 1994 film I Like It Like That. The song's popularity was later renewed due to its inclusion in a Burger King commercial in 1996 and peaked at No. 25 on the Billboard Hot 100 the following year.
