  1. "Moody's Mood for Love" was not released as a standard single in the United States; no songs from the American Idol Season 5: Encores CD were made available as singles for radio airplay.

It peaked at #1 on the US Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart thus equaling a U.S. chart position of #101.
  2. "Movin' On" wasn't released as a single, but was released as a pre-album track release to U.S. online music retailers.

  4. For the issue date of April 7, 2007, Billboard reports that first week sales of this album made him reach the #3 position on the Billboard 200.[13] Billboard also announced that his album debuted at #1 over all Independent Albums.

  5.
