"Despre tine" is the third single release from O-Zone's second album Number 1, and came back in their last album, DiscO-Zone. Following up their 2004 summer hit "Dragostea din tei", "Despre tine" proved to be a smaller hit than its predecessor, but a big enough one to make number one in several European countries.

Song information[edit]

The single was not released in the United Kingdom and didn't benefit from large-scale promotion like "Dragostea din tei". It reached #4 in Euro Hot 100.

In the DiscO-Zone version, the track featured a similar sound to O-Zone's previous hit, originally circulating on the Internet as an allegedly 'original version' of the "Dragostea din tei" song, due to the very similar chorus. At the start of the predecessor's music video the music playing before the band members get on to the airplane is "Despre tine[unu' in the mix]".

There have been several remixes of "Despre Tine", the most notorious is the Marvin and Prezioso Radio edit, which has the same vocal structure but a completely different tune.

"Despre tine" has proved to be a large hit in Portugal. In 2005, the band NexUS created an English version, called "About You...".

Sour Base also has covered "Despre Tine." The CD it was featured on ("Illicit Beats"), however, did not achieve good reviews on iTunes.
