The single was released in the year 2000 and shot to the top of the charts in the UK becoming Five’s second number 1. The hit went on to become a top 3 in Austria and Australia, a top 10 in Ireland and a top 20 in Belgium, Switzerland and The Netherlands.

The song was certified Silver in the UK and Gold in Australia.
