ELEVEN years after it was released, the No Doubt featuring Lady Saw song Underneath It All is enjoying a comeback thanks to singer Tessanne Chin.

Her performance of the track on the NBC competition, The Voice, has pushed Underneath it All back onto the charts. Chin's live version has sold over 22,000 downloads since it was released on iTunes three weeks ago. It has topped the Billboard's Digital Reggae Singles chart.

Lady Saw hailed Chin's performance on Twitter shortly after it was televised.

Through a series of outstanding performances, Chin is through to tonight's finals of The Voice. The other finalists are Americans Will Champlin and Jacquie Lee.

The winner will be announced Tuesday evening.

Produced by Sly and Robbie, Underneath it All was recorded in 2001 at the Gee Jam studio in Portland and One Pop studio in Kingston. Released in 2002, it is No Doubt's biggest American hit.

Underneath it All peaked at number three on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and won a Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals at the 46th Grammy Awards.
