AllMusic Review by

Urban Dance Explosion, released in 2005 by Warner Dance U.K., features many of the biggest urban and pop-rap singles from the early 2000s, along with a DVD titled (descriptively enough) "Urban Street Dance Class" that also adds a handful of videos for the tracks included on the audio CD. Looks like Warner is doing whatever they can here to add value and lure those who would otherwise download the tracks for free. At any rate, Ciara's "1, 2 Step," J-Kwon's "Tipsy," Kano's "Nite Nite," T.I.'s "Bring 'Em Out," and Cassidy's "Get No Better" were all hugely successful -- in the U.K. and elsewhere -- and the disc as a whole is an accurate reflection of the era, as solid as any volume of the Now series.
