The Dallas Austin remix on the single features an additional rap verse!

The first single from the Supernova album was intended to be “Hot”, but was changed at the last minute by LA Reid.

Unfortunately, Lisa’s live performance of The Block Party on Top of the Pops was canceled after the September 11 attacks in New York City.
