“Been Around the World” is a 1997 single from the Puff Daddy album No Way Out, featuring The Notorious B.I.G. and Mase. In the album version, the song concludes with a skit featuring an interview with “The Mad Producer”.
The song was released as a single on November 14, 1997; it was the fourth single released from the album. Like the previous three singles, which all reached No. 1 or No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, “Been Around the World” hit No. 2 on the chart, in the first two weeks of 1998; it was kept out of the No. 1 spot by Elton John’s “Candle in the Wind 1997” (the second best-selling single of all time).
“Been Around the World” did reach No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Rap Tracks and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts.
