Pras' post-Fugees debut rode largely on the strength of its title cut, also included on the soundtrack to Warren Beatty's political satire Bulworth. Bolstered by a the addition of Ol' Dirty Bastard (who reportedly gate-crashed the session), the melody of Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton's "Islands in the Stream" with vocals by Mya and a video featuring Beatty and Halle Berry alongside the recording artists, the song went Top 20, though that didn't protect Pras from critical venom. Even co-producer Wyclef Jean weighed in, calling Pras an "eight-bar superstar." Jean added, "I told Pras, "I don't think it's smart for you to do a second [album] right now," and a notorious feud was officially begun.
