The song "Never Ever" by All Saints was written by Shaznay Lewis after splitting up with a boyfriend, but the music in the song conveyed the impression that all would be well.

All Saints flew to Washington DC where they recorded the vocals, except for the intro which was recorded at Battery Studios in UK and were kept from the original demo. This was because the mood could not be replicated and so, everyone agreed to keep the demo vocals.

"Never Ever" was the biggest hit in the USA for the band.
