Uprising peaked at #41 on Billboard‘s (North America) Black Albums chart, and #45 on the Pop Albums chart. “Could You Be Loved” was #6 and #56 respectively on the Club Play Singles and Black Singles charts. The album fared better in the UK where it was a top ten hit along with the single “Could You Be Loved” which reached number 5 in the UK singles charts.
