This became Destiny's Child's first hit when it was remixed by Wyclef Jean, a former member of Fugees. It was the song where they developed their quick, punctuated vocal style. Lead singer Beyoncé Knowles sang it fast as a joke, by Wyclef liked it and had her record it that way.
This was Destiny's Child's first Top 40 charting hit, at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 on the R&B for one week besides. Their next hit was the #1 "Bills, Bills, Bills." They continue their affinity for songs titled with a repeated word in "Jumpin' Jumpin'," their #3 hit in 2000.
The album contains two versions of this song: "No, No, No (part 1)" and "No, No, No (part 2)" Part 2 is the remix, which was released as a single. Parts 1 and 2 of this song also form part of the track list for Destiny's Child's 2001 DVD The Platinum's on the Wall.
The first time Kelly Rowland heard herself on the radio was in 1998 when she was in Houston driving with her Destiny's Child colleagues, Beyoncé, LeToya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson. They were on their way to pick up, Beyoncé's little sister, Solange Knowles, from school when this song came on the radio. "We were like, 'Oh my God, Oh my God!'" she recalled to Radio.com. "We started running around the courtyard at Solange's school and she hops out of the school and is like, 'Why are y'all embarrassing me?'"
The girls explained what was happening and Beyoncé's little sister started running around the courtyard, too. "It was beautiful moment," Rowland said. "We were just really happy."
