The second single "Whatever U Want", features Joe Budden and once again reached the top 10 in the UK as well as charting in the Billboard Hot 100. Today, Fabrice Morvan forges a solo career, performing light alternative music that is far from his glory days with Milli Vanilli; he plays in clubs throughout the U.S. It has also been slowly climbing the Billboard Hot 100. Then, in 1998, Pilatus was found dead of an alcohol and drug overdose in Frankfurt, Germany. As of May 2004, the first single has reached number one on a world composite dance chart (compiled on data from the US, UK, Germany, Japan, Italy and Australia) reached the top 3 in the UK and the top 40 in Australia. In 1997, Milli Vanilli had a chance to tell their side of the story of their musical fiasco in the premiere episode of VH1's Behind The Music. The first single "Dip It Low" was written by Polli Paul, who has also written songs for the Black Eyed Peas. After a few more tries, Pilatus began a series of criminal acts, arrested for assault and vandalism, among other crimes, in Los Angeles.

During 2003, Christina Milian recorded songs for her first US album It's About Time which is a reference to how long it has taken for an album to be released in the US. Pilatus tried to commit suicide soon after, then rejoined with Morvan as Rob & Fab. She will be in significant roles in a further two films to come out within a year of May 2004 - Man of the House opposite Tommy Lee Jones and co-starring in Be Cool with John Travolta and Uma Thurman. Farian tried to reform the band as the Real Milli Vanilli, but the resulting LP Moment of Truth was an utter failure. Her audition was successful leading in turn to a lead role in Love Don't Cost a Thing in 2003. A court ruling in the US allowed anyone who had bought the album to get a refund. She met director Joseph Kahn on an episode of Wannabes who suggested she audition for a lead role in Torque opposite Ice Cube. Milli Vanilli's Grammy was rescinded four days later, and Arista Records dropped the act from its rosters and deleted the album and its masters from their catalog.

Milian was appointed to host the Wannabes program on MTV in 2002. With Morvan and Pilatus pressuring him to let them sing on the next album, Farian revealed the truth to reporters on November 15, 1990, after the record of Girl You Know It's True skipped during a live performance recorded by MTV at the Lake Compounce theme park in Connecticut. She also wrote and sang the theme song for the Disney series Kim Possible "Call Me Beep Me" in the same year. Pilatus was ridiculed in the press for comparing himself to Paul McCartney, Elvis Presley, Mick Jagger and Bob Dylan; he also developed a cocaine problem. It was another UK top ten hit single in 2002. Milli Vanilli won a Grammy Award for Best New Artist on February 22, 1990 for their second album, Girl You Know It's True (1990 in music). She also featured on "It's All Gravy", a duet with Romeo of the garage group So Solid Crew. Despite critical pans, Milli Vanilli's fame continued to grow worldwide even after Charles Shaw told a reporter the truth; he later retracted his statement after Farian paid him off.

The single "When You Look At Me" was another international hit going top 5 in the UK, Netherlands, and Ireland and making the top 40 in Denmark, Australia and France. Their first album was All or Nothing (see 1988 in music), which was both a European hit and an American hit. The success of From AM To PM sparked the international release of the Christina Milian album although not in the US. Frank Farian used Pilatus and Morvan to front Charles Shaw, Johnny Davis and Brad Howell; he felt that these musicians were talented but unmarketable. It became a worldwide hit reaching top 5 in the UK and Denmark, Top 10 in the Netherlands, and top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100 and in Australia. In fact, some of melodic influence in today's hip-hop may be attributed to Milli Vanilli's influence. In 2001, Milian released her first single of her own "AM To PM", off her self-titled debut album. Despite the scandal, the Milli Vanilli sound created by Frank Farian was ground-breaking in pop-music, as it combined (American) hip hop rhythms with Eurodance melodies.

Other bands, including C&C Music Factory and Black Box, were also fronted by lip-syncers. She also co-wrote the track "Play" for Jennifer Lopez's J. They have since been used as an example of utter shallowness in music, though they were hardly unique at the time.
