“Never Ever” is a song by All Saints, released as the second single from their debut album, All Saints. It became a very successful worldwide hit and was the first of five #1 singles in the UK for the group. The single was released in the United States on July 7, 1998 with a new music video. It is also the band’s most successful single to date. The single debuted at #13 on the US charts on July 25, 1998 and reached #4.

The song entred the UK Singles Chart at #3 on 22nd November 1997 and stayed in the Top 5 for 8 weeks before climbing to #1 on 17th January 1998 for 1 week. The song went on to spend a total of 24 weeks in the chart. A total of 1,263,658 copies of the single were sold in the UK, making it All Saints’ biggest hit; 770,000 copies were sold before it became #1 which makes it more than any single ever before in the UK chart history. All Saints won two BRIT Awards for this single in 1998: Best Single and Best Video.
The music of the song is based upon an overlay of Amazing Grace which according to Ger Tillekens is the reason why it became so successful. Even though the lyrics are very different and the music sounds different, it is based on a familiar and popular song.
