"He Loves U Not" (2001, Number Two) and "This Is Me" (2001, Number 39)
At the turn of the millennium Total Request Live – the daily MTV countdown show, hosted by Carson Daly – caused crowds to throng in Times Square and pop songs to take off into outer space. One outfit to benefit from the era's teenpop boom was Dream, a P. Diddy-shepherded girl band. Their two biggest hits (both of which were co-written by electro-R&B godfather David Frank) had a supreme confidence that made them catnip for after-school singalongs. The electrified rave-up "He Loves U Not" was a putdown of a pretender to a boyfriend's throne, while the similarly boisterous "This Is Me" declared fealty to a guy who had been done wrong in the past.
