Album information

The album was not released in the United States, although it was released in other countries. The first single, "The Block Party", was sent to radio in the summer of 2001, becoming a top 20 hit in the U.K., but it did not perform well in the U.S. singles chart. The second single would have been "Hot!", as was made clear at the end of her music video. However, when the album release was canceled in the United States, all further singles were canceled. Though the album was canceled by Arista, Lopes tried selling the album on her website Eye-site, but to no success. However, since the album was not released, Lisa Lopes had already started to work on new material for a second solo album, and even recorded some new material before her fatal car accident in 2002.

The intended release date for the album was August 16, 2001 - the day Lopes's father died and his birthday. This is alluded to in the lyrics of the song "A New Star is Born". The release date of the album was ultimately pushed back several times.

The album was re-released in a remixed form in 2009 as Eye Legacy.
