Crash the Party is the debut studio album by the Orlando, Florida rap duo Smilez and Southstar. The album was primarily produced by brothers DJ Nasty & LVM.
The first and third singles, "Who Wants This?" and "Now That You're Gone," respectively, failed to gain much traction; however, the second single, "Tell Me," was released to much success and airplay. "Tell Me" was a Top 40 hit for weeks, giving Smilez and Southstar their most successful single of their career.
The album debuted in early 2003 at number 91 on the Billboard 200 chart and number 34 on the R&B/Hip-Hop album chart.
Smilez and Southstar's debut was released to lackluster reviews and lukewarm public reception. The popularity of "Tell Me" did not translate into high album sales, leaving the hip-hop duo to switch record labels and unable to find further mainstream success. The album sold 300,000 copies to date
