The album contains four Swedish Top 40 hits on the Swedish Singles Chart. The album, however, failed to enter the Swedish Albums Chart, while Lanto's debut album One peaked at number 25 on the chart.

Singles

Since 2008, Lanto has released 3 singles which are not included on her debut album One and it is currently unknown whether or not these singles, namely: "Speak 'n Spell"; "My Favourite Pair of Jeans" and "Discotheque", will feature on her second album. Lanto said of these tracks "We haven’t really decided yet if they ["Speak 'n Spell"; "Discotheque"] will be on there. When I recorded ‘Discotheque’ and ‘Speak N Spell’, we were doing songs that were more disco. But the new songs are more pop and rock, with a bit of punk in there. So we’ll have to record them again if we want them on the album." [3]
