The album spawned the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart hits "Lifetime" (No. 5) and "This Woman's Work" (No. 16).
As previously reported, Maxwell is among those up for the best male R&B artist honor at the second annual BET Awards, which will take place June 25 at Los Angeles' Kodak Theatre and will be broadcast live on the cable channel beginning at 9 p.m. ET (rebroadcast at 9 p.m. PT).
