The song became the group's first Top 10 hit, peaking at number four. A total of 158,769 copies have been sold; the single was released in the US after All Saints scored their first number one hit with "Never Ever". The track was released in Australia to coincide with the UK release, where it peaked at No. 12.

Background[edit]

"I Know Where It's At" was written by Shaznay Lewis and Karl Gordon, and produced by Gordon. Walter Becker and Donald Fagen are credited as writers because the song samples elements from Steely Dan's "The Fez".

Music video[edit]

The official music video for "I Know Where It's At" was directed by Alex Hemming, it was the first video All Saints ever released. It was to show the girls in an urban setting as the more streetwise variants of girl groups; the video was shot with very little colour, with the girls almost entirely in black and white.
