When "Lights, Camera, Action!" became a much larger hit than probably anyone expected in early 2002 -- not only garnering tons of urban radio play, but also storming up the Billboard singles chart, breaking into the Hot 100 chart's Top 25 -- Universal commissioned a remix featuring Missy Elliott and P. Diddy, two of East Coast urban radio's biggest artists at the time. Producer Bink! didn't alter his track too much for the remix, and that's fortunate since it was his beats more than Cheeks' rapping that make the song such a surprise success. You should also note that there are different remixes for "Lights, Camera, Action!": the "Club Mix" features Missy Elliott and P. Diddy, while the "Remix" features Petey Pablo in addition to the other two aforementioned artists, and the "Remix Instrumental," of course, features just Bink!'s track, albeit in a chopped-up version that's even more amazing than the original version.
