Beyonce - Fighting Temptation (Featuring Missy Elliott, MC Lyte & Free)

Fighting Temptation is a single released by R&B / pop singer Beyoncé and female rappers Missy Elliott, MC Lyte, and Free in 2003 to promote the film The Fighting Temptations, in which Beyoncé stars. The song samples Uncle Louie's 1979 song "I Like Funky Music".

As it was released just one month after the second single from Beyoncé's Dangerously in Love, "Baby Boy", the song did not become a big hit and failed to enter the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and any other Billboard chart. However, the single received some attention from European countries, eventually peaking at number thirteen in the Netherlands. The film was also an instant success, mainly due to Beyoncé's success in Europe at that time.
