In April 1989, UK soul group Soul II Soul released their debut album - Club Classics Volume One. The album's first single, the group's break out "club classic" Keep On Moving, had just been released the previous month. The album release was followed by the single for Back To Life. The single release of the song featured a re-recorded version, which added the hook (and title) "However Do You Want Me". The single remix is one of Soul II Soul's most successful releases, and it has been sampled numerous times, including on Enigma's Sadness, N-Joi's Anthem and numerous hip-hop songs. The beat on the song, as well as on their previous single Back To Life, was based on Eric B. & Rakim's 1987 hit Paid In Full. In 1989, when Soul II Soul was denied an award at the Brit Awards, winning artist Neneh Cherry protested by breaking her statuette in half and giving half of it to Soul II Soul's Jazzie B.
