No, it's an EP that is beloved among fans that bought it. Most charting EPs only get airplay for one song. See also The Specials' number one EP featuring Too Much Too Young. It's just rare for EP's to be so popular.
The other tracks did get a little airplay on Radio 1 - She Won't Be Home has become a minor festive classic.

Milli Vanilli are hard to Vote for. I liked some of 'their' Hits. However, they never
actually sang on them. It was a swindle. Therefore, it seems dishonest to Vote
for them. It is very sad. I believe that the shame of it all, eventually caused one
of the Duo to kill himself...
