Santana's record sales in the 1990s were very low. Toward the end of the decade he was without a contract. However, Arista Records' Clive Davis, who had worked with Santana at Columbia, signed him and encouraged him to record a star-studded album with mostly younger artists. The result was 1999's Supernatural, which included collaborations with Everlast, Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty, Eric Clapton, Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean, Cee-Lo, Maná, Dave Matthews, and others.
The lead single was "Smooth", a dynamic cha-cha stop-start number co-written and sung by Rob Thomas, and laced throughout with Santana's guitar fills and runs. The track's energy was immediately apparent on radio, and it was played on a wide variety of station formats. "Smooth" spent twelve weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming in the process the last #1 single of the 1990s. The music video set on a hot barrio street was also very popular. Supernatural reached number one on the US album charts and the follow-up single, "Maria Maria", featuring the R&B duo The Product G&B, also hit number one, spending ten weeks there in the spring of 2000. Supernatural eventually sold over 15 million copies in the United States, making it Santana's biggest sales success by far.
Matchbox Twenty (auparavant Matchbox 20) est un groupe de rock américain originaire d'Orlando en Floride et qui a vendu plus de 39 millions d'albums dans le monde. Les membres actuels sont Rob Thomas (chant, piano), Kyle Cook (guitare), Paul Doucette (batterie) et Brian Yale (basse); Adam Gaynor (guitare rythmique) ayant quitté le groupe en 2005. Thomas, Yale et Doucette jouaient dans un groupe local Tabitha's secret. Le producteur Matt Serletic, alors à Orlando, entend parler du groupe et se montre très intéressé par la voix et les compositions de Rob Thomas, mais le contrat qu'il propose ne convient pas aux deux guitaristes. Rob, Paul et Brian décident alors de quitter le groupe et de former le groupe Matchbox Twenty, rejoint par les guitaristes Kyle Cook et Adam Gaynor.
la collaboration fructueuse avec Santana (composition et chant) sur le tube planétaire Smooth pour lequel Rob Thomas récoltera 3 Grammy Awards.
