Arena's version of "Never (Past Tense)" was therefore the single release. It became a major club and dance radio hit in America, and even managed to peak at #97 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It also reached #42 in the UK Singles Chart in April 2003.
The Roc Project's first album was released in early 2003 and, with the record label issues finally cleared up, Novak appeared as the vocalist on all tracks, although the album also included the version of "Never (Past Tense)" with Arena's vocals. The group's second single, "Deja Vu", was released in the spring of 2004, and became a smaller club and dance hit than their debut single.
