Here is what OHM Music had to say about the single:

Warrior's debut album from 2002. Here is what OHM Music has to say about it:
He has blazed a trail from his birthplace of Newark New Jersey, across New
York's tri-state, flipped coasts to LA and ended up in the Mid-West. With a
pen in one hand and his manhood in the other, Warrior is ready to hit the
airwaves. On his debut CD " The Perfect Weapon " his brand of East Coast,
West Coast, Mid-West sub-urban Hip Hop is sure to make him a mega rap star.
His vocals are powerful and distinct. His lyrics hit hard, dealing with the
street hustle of survival. Warrior's debut album will be the most
anticipated, exhilarating, diverse Hip Hop album to be released. His style
is unique, lyrics so real you can feel them, vocals dynamic, and the
combination takes the world on.
The video is also available on the enhenced US 4track CD (TBCD 2225) which was released by Tommy Boy Records. You can also click on the links above/below to

track "My Projects" was the first single taken from the 2001 album
"Disturbed" and Milwaukee-based rapper Coo Coo Cal enjoyed his first
hit with it, as the single reached the Number One position on the
Billboard Hot Rap Singles chart.

Porn is another attempt of bringing together leading producers of
Hip-Hop and Electronic Music with the stars of adult movies. Midori
performs the track "F.M.A" with Kid Rock and "ZAP" with Wide (featuring Liquid Todd and Dr. Luke).
has to be said that these are two outstanding tracks on the album. The
rest of the album is pretty poor - except the track "Nasty" by Brother
Marquis (of 2 Live Crew) feat. Rebecca Loyd which also shines.
Nevertheless Midori's music and her appearance on the cover
(back/front) and one picture inside the booklet (pictured below) make
the album a must.

To Rock" is probably the best collection of songs by adult film stars.
Unlike the "Deep Porn" collection where you sometimes wish that certain
porn stars never walked into a recording studio, all those singing on
"Porn To Rock" can sing. Most of the songs are fun to listen to and Midori's "5, 10, 15, 20" is no exception.
It might be interesting to notice that the album was released with a different cover in Germany (not pictured).

Midori's "5, 10, 15, 20" is a guaranteed dance-floor throbber. - Salt Lake CityWeekly
I enjoyed the swirling playfulness in Madison's "Man on the Moon," the sheer exuberance of Johnny Toxic's "Happy," the synth-heavy hip hop of Midori's "5, 10, 15, 20," and the way Sabateur (featuring Chloe Nichole) layers samples of "oohs" and "ahhs" in and out (pardon the pun) of rhythms. - BAM
Some of the songs are actually good. The albums high points include Candye Kane's lively, innuendo filled The Meat Song and the sassy grooving samples and lap-dancer lyrics of Midori's 5, 10, 15, 20. - L.A. Weekly
Johnny Toxic, Midori, Ginger Lynn, Hyapatia Lee and Candye Kane all turn in surprisingly proficient, hilariously conceived pop nuggets. Maybe these people should consider career changes. - Aquarian Weekly
Porn to Rock is a lot more than just a novelty comp. Midori's "5, 10, 15, 20" really ought to become a strip club anthem. She is honest, funny, sexy and wraps it all up in a great dance beat. What more can you ask for? - Focus Magazine

Jody Watley The Ultimate Collection (Avid Music 2004)
Did Michele ever join her sister Jody in a video? Yes, she did.
Michele has guest appearances in two of Jody's videos: "Your Love Keeps Working On Me" where she plays a member of Jody's band and "When A Man Love's A Woman" where Michele depicts responsibility as the young mother.
Both songs were recorded for Jody Watley's 1993 album "Intimacy". The album contains several outstanding Jody Watley tunes but the label MCA didn't do a good job promoting the album and Jody left the label.
Both videos are included on Jody Watley's limited edition DVD "The Ultimate Collection".
