Release and reception

2 Unlimited in the "Do What's Good For Me" music video.

"Do What's Good For Me" was released as the first single from 2 Unlimited's greatest hits compilation album Hits Unlimited.[1]

Billboard wrote about the song: "The ongoing wave of pop-NRG dance acts enjoying radio prominence owes a massive debt to this ever-hot European duo for getting the party started. Sadly, the act has yet to achieve U.S. success à la such offspring as Real McCoy, but this jumpy li'l jam could easily change that. The bassline throbs infectiously, while the interplay of male rapping and female singing pops with palpable chemistry."[2]

The release scored chart success in many European countries peaking at #3 in Spain. "Do What's Good For Me" managed a respectable 17th place on the Canadian singles chart while also charting in the top 20 in the Netherlands and the UK.
