In Australia, the song earned the title of second best-selling single of 2000, having been certified platinum three times and spent four weeks holding the top spot of the Australian charts; besides Australia, “Teenage Dirtbag” also found a strong following in Austria and Belgium, earning the No. 1 titles in those areas as well. “Teenage Dirtbag” also hit the No. 2 spots on charts in Ireland, Germany and the United Kingdom.

Besides the aforementioned Wheatus cover, SZA also debuted a portion of a new and unreleased track known as “Brace Yourself.” While officials details concerning that track are scarce, the song was has been teased and previewed on social media in recent months.
