While it was not a smash hit, it did herald a brief return to the R&B chart with the single "Trials of the Heart."

Band member Michael Day died of cancer in 2001. In 2008, Pauli Carman original lead singer continues to represent the group "Champaign".
The Carma album, released in 2008, included original songs along with a remake of The Beatles' "And I Love Her" and the Stevie Wonder track "I Love, I Love". In 2010, Get Back 2 Love was released (included a remaster of "How 'Bout Us"). The title track "Get Back 2 Love" made reference to Champaign's top hits. In 2010, the single "Mercy" was released (a remake of the Marvin Gaye hit "Mercy Mercy Me)".
