So What The Fuss was the first single to be released from Stevie Wonder's 25th studio album album A Time To Love, released worldwide six months before the album's release. The title track featured Prince playing guitar, as well as En Vogue on vocals.

The single reached only number 96 on the US Billboard Hot 100, and number 34 on the Billboard R&B Chart. The single fared better in the UK, where it reached number 19 on the Gallup Singles Chart.

A CD release featuring various remixes was released in May 2005. Of note is that the track named So What The Fuss (Album Version) is in fact over a minute longer than the album version included on A Time To Love when the album was finally released later in 2005.

Trivia

  • This was Stevie Wonder's first single in almost 10 years, and received a lot of attention for that fact.
  • This single also saw the original four members of En Vogue reunited for the first time in seven years, and received attention for that fact.
  • Although Prince had remixed Cold Chill from Stevie Wonder's 1995 album Conversation Peace, that track was not released until late in 2005, making this single the first released collaboration between Prince and Stevie Wonder.
