George released Outside, a joyous, disco-infused jam that used self-deprecating humour to poke fun at the incident; even including direct samples of radio reports on his arrest in the song. Outside made it to number two on the UK singles chart and was the the lead single from his greatest hits album, Ladies & Gentlemen: The Best of George Michael. The video for the song was directed by Vaughan Arnell.
