The song also appeared on En Vogue's Runaway Love EP. "Whatta Man" was a major hit for both Salt-N-Pepa and En Vogue, peaking at number three on the Billboard Hot 100, and at number seven on the UK Singles Chart. It was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best R&B Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group and theAmerican Music Award for Favorite Soul/R&B Single.
Cheryl "Salt" James and producer Hurby Azor covered the song "What a Man" from the 1968 Stax hit byLinda Lyndell, written by Dave Crawford and rapped over the track. "What a Man's" chorus of "What a man, what a man, what a man, what a mighty good man" is also repurposed for this recording.
