The soundtrack was a huge success, peaking at #4 on the Billboard 200, #1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and was certified 2x Multi-Platinum on February 17, 1998. Four singles made to the Billboard Hot 100: "I Care 'Bout You", "What About Us?", "We're Not Making Love No More", and "A Song for Mama"—making it to 23, 16, 13, and 7 on the chart, respectively.
