It was only a promo single and never intended to be a success. In fact they planned for it to flop and asked radio to pay the song dust so that people will be HYPED when the real lead single comes. That's just how genius they are. I read it was all JLos plan. JLo her business power.

Firework 5 x Platinum ET 5 x Platinum

"'I Will Be' is a song I have known for a while… From the outside looking in I know that everyone was fighting for Avril to put this on her record but for reasons I will not disclose, Avril, did not... I remember Luke playing this song for me months ago and I was at the point of tears knowing I heard a song that would be the hugest thing ever… I mean, people, be prepared to hear this song at EVERY WEDDING for a LONG time."
