Two singles were officially released to radio stations and gained a lot of airplay.

"Ti Theloune Ta Matia Sou"

The title track was the lead single and released on 15 December 2000 alongside the EP. The song is a rock ballad featuring rock band, Exis. It was followed by a club mix which released with music video, directed by Kostas Kapetanidis. In producing the video, Sony Music used the remix which was found to be more audience-friendly, in that it was upbeat and signature of music at that time period. Although the club mix, which was the work of Dimitris Paizis, did not feature Exis. The film clip and track became a hit on the charts and received accolades. It was shot in October 2000 and released shortly thereafter, showcasing Katy in many different abstract scenes and theming. [7]

"Aspro I Mavro"

"Aspro I Mavro" was the second and last single and released on 30 March 2001. The song is a cover of the 1996 Algerian song "Harramt Ahebbak" and is a dance tsifteteli which has success until today.
