Chart performance

The single became Cassie's most popular single to date, peaking at number three on the Billboard Hot 100 a short while after the song was released. It stayed atop Billboard's Hot 100 Airplay for 7 weeks. Following that chart's domination by Yung Joc's It's Goin' Down, Bad Boy Records once again dominated a chart for much of a summer as it had done on the Hot 100 in 1997. "Me & U" also reached the top of the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. In the UK, the song entered the UK Singles Chart at number twenty-three and, within a week's time, rose to a number six, remaining there for a week before dropping down to number nine. The song also did well around the rest of Europe, including France, Germany, and Ireland.

Music video

In the music video, Cassie comes in with her phone which is playing part of the chorus to "Me & U" while improvising some lyrics that were not in the original song. She puts the song on and begins to dance and sing along, hurting herself while doing a spinning move, changing her outfit, and then being able to successfully complete the spinning move later on. The video is directed by Norwegian-born director Ray Kay.

In July 2006 an unreleased, low-budget and suggestive video for "Me & U" appeared on YouTube. This video was in stark contrast to the more polished video that was shown on mainstream media outlets. Initially, it was removed from most websites but continued to appear on file sharing networks and eventually appeared again on the internet. Cassie has gone on record to denounce the original video (directed by Little X), which depicts her singing to an unidentified male at a night club before taking him to a hotel room where Cassie is depicted kneeling below him while caressing his genital region and then unbuckling his pants in night vision. Cassie's management maintains that the low-budget, risqué version was released only for European audiences.
