This was the song on In Our Bones that took the most work to get right. Vocalist Chrissy Costanza explained to HMV.com: "'Forget Me Now' went through a lot of changes. It started out sounding like a hip hop song and we were debating having a rapper feature on the track. It sounds nothing like the original now."
Until December 5, 1998, a song had to be issued as a single to make the Hot 100. Aaliyah's "Try Again" was the first tune to top the chart based on airplay alone, without any sales figures being included.
