"Wait & See ~Risk~" is the fifth single released by Utada Hikaru. It was first released as a CD single and two months later as a DVD single. Much like her previous single, "Addicted To You", the song was produced by famed American R&B duo Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. "Wait & See ~Risk~" contains a few English lyrics not listed in the booklet: "Is it all for you? Give it all for you," and "Wait and see, until you see all there is to see."

The single reached #1 on Oricon charts and charted for 21 weeks, becoming the #3 single of 2000 in Japan. It reached #29 on World Charts for single airplay, and reached #18 for sales. In total, the single sold over 1,662,000 copies.
