The album did not include the hit "Out of Your Mind", but spawned two singles, "Not Such an Innocent Girl" and "A Mind of Its Own" which managed to reach the top ten in the United Kingdom. The album became a commercial success after it debuted and peaked at number ten in the UK Albums Chart,[3] charting for 3 weeks and selling 16,000 copies in its first week.

However, the album has only sold 52,016 copies overall in the United Kingdom, much lower than any other Spice solo album, while costing 3 million pounds to record. After Being Victoria Beckham, an official documentary that aired in early March 2002, the album re-entered the UK Albums Chart at number sixty-seven. The track "Every Part of Me" is about Beckham's son Brooklyn and includes audio of his voice in the background. The
