Chart performance

Like previous single "No Man's Land", "After You" was added straight to the A-list at BBC Radio 2 and was also the radio station's record of the week [ [ BBC Radio 2 Playlist] Retrieved 18 June, 2007] . The song entered the UK airplay chart at number fifty, after only four days of radio play. The following week, "After You" rocketed up the airplay chart, climbing from number fifty to number seven, one of Knight's highest charting airplay singles to date and her biggest climb on the radio airplay chart. "After You" also became the most played single on BBC Radio 2, between 11 June, 2007 and 16 June, 2007 and the music video for the song charted at number-one in the TV airplay pre-release chart [ [ Radio and television chart position statistics for "After You"] Retrieved 18 June, 2007] .

"After You" is one of Knight's biggest commercial failures, missing the top seventy-five altogether, peaking at a lowly one-hundred and thirty-one. It is Knight's lowest chart position since the first issue of "Sista Sista" missed the top two-hundred and "Mutual Feeling" made one-hundred and twenty-four.
