The hip hop, disco, funk album went on to chart high up charts in 21 countries, with European countries seeming to be especially smitten with the album.

In the United States, Special hit #2 on the Billboard 200 chart and on the Top Tastemaker Albums chart.

It also charted at #2 in Australia, and #3 in Canada and New Zealand.
