"Hot" was written and produced by Romanian dance music trio Play & Win, who also wrote and produced all of the tracks from Inna's debut album Hot. Before their success with Inna, the trio had achieved solo success topping the Romanian Top 100 as well as with dance artist Akcent. Inna recorded the song in 2008 at Play & Win Studios in Constanta, Romania and the song was published through her Romanian record label, Roton. The track's verses consists of the lyrics "You belong to me, I belong to you, fire from my heart burning just for you, when you're far away, I'm in love with you, feelings that are so high, what can I do?" and the chorus "Fly like you do it, like you're high like you do it, fly like you do it, like a woman." Evoking that the song's title "Hot" is an adjective for one's relationship, to the extent that when your lover is far away, you are still in love with him/her. The track features male vocals in some of the ad-libs as well as in the intro lyric "Go!" Inna's ad-libs fall in after the first chorus.
"Hot" is composed in a tempo of 128 beats per minute and has been stylised to the European electrohouse genre. The track acts as the opening track on Inna's debut album of the same name. The song has been composed in a structure of: verse - chorus - ad-libs - ad-libs - chorus - ad-libs - chorus - chorus. The build-up to the first verse is approximately forty-five seconds long and two of the three ad-lib sections are sung by the male vocals of Marcel Botezan of Play & Win.
"Hot" appears on numerous compilation albums, of which include: 538 Dance Smash 2009 Vol.4, 538 Dance Smash - Hits Of The Year 2009, Damn! 26 - 100% Dance Hits, Disco Estrella Vol. 12, DJ Selection 262 - The Balkanian Explosion, Grandmix 2009, Hot! Summer Hits 2009, Jaarmix 2009, Love2Club, Máxima Fm Compilation Vol. 10, Radio 538 - Hitzone - Best Of 2009 and Todo Exitos 2009.
Inna has performed "Hot" live at the 2009 Eska Music Awards, Legendario Ice Experience and at the 2009 Sopot Hit Festival in Poland. Inna also performed the song at Loop Live in Sofia, Bulgaria on October 11, 2009.
For the single's release in the United Kingdom, the song premiered on the radio broadcast of Floorfillers on January 22, 2010 in association with Inna's UK record label All Around the World who also uploaded "Hot" to their music video channel.
In January 2010, an Ultra video mix was released by DJ Riddler, on American record label Ultra Records. The mix includes "Hot," as well as "All That Matters" by Mischa Daniels vs. De Nuit and "Feel It In My Bones" by Tiësto featuring Tegan And Sara. "Hot" was named song of the year for 2009 by popular Russian radio station DFM. The single was released in the United Kingdom on March 14, 2010, on downloads, the physical release was three weeks later.
The song was remixed to two minutes and thirty three seconds by Liverpool house music group Cahill and features on the compilation album Love2Club. And for its UK release the track was edited to just over two minutes and thirty seconds. "Hot" was playlisted before its single release on BBC Radio 1, Kiss FM and Galaxy FM in the United Kingdom.
The first version of the music video for "Hot" was made in 2008 in Romania. It was released for the first time, on YouTube on November 10, 2008 where it has since received over 40,000,000 views to-date. The first video has been entitled as the True Love Video Edit, whilst the second version became the Dancing In The Dark Video Edit. The second is approximately ten seconds longer than the first.
In the first version of the music video for "Hot", Inna can be seen singing wearing two different looks. The first look comprises her having long hair, wearing traditional, more covered up Romanian clothing. This look can be viewed in the scene in the music video where she is singing on a rooftop. The second look comprises Inna wearing a strapless modern grey dress and having her hair tied up. Her jewelry in this look is more untraditional and modern as opposed to the first look. This look can be viewed in scenes from the video where she is singing leaning up against a white wall in a nightclub.
The music video begins with a young blonde woman doing her hair and make-up, getting ready in a nightclub's back dressing room where she works as a stage dancer. Her fellow co-workers and friends then are seen around her as she receives a card from a supposedly secret admirer. The next scene involves the girl doing her job stage dancing in a nightclub. The music video then moves into a scene at the girl's home where she can be seen in casual dress arguing with her lover in front of their young daughter who is busy drawing. After the mother leaves, the father comforts his daughter who seems to be upset about her parents arguing and then puts her to bed. The music video then shifts back to the nightclub scene where this time the girl is crowded around by her friends because of the roses and card she received from her secret admirer before going back to stage dance that night. Whilst the girl is stage dancing, her secret admirer is shadowed but visible in the crowd at the nightclub. The girl arrives the next morning home again where she fights again with her lover and then packs her bags and leaves the house. Toward the end of the video the girl manages to find her secret admirer who then takes his sunglasses off and he turns out to be the girl's lover who she has been fighting with. They then hug. The music video ends with Inna and Play & Win standing together up against the white wall in the nightclub before they walk away together.
A second music video for "Hot" was made in 2008 and leaked a few weeks after the first version did. It differs from the first in the sense that it has no storyline.
The video begins with a round red speaker backed in red lighting visible onscreen, then moving to a scene where a man with tied back long black hair dressed in a black dance outfit can be seen dancing backed by pink lighting. "INNA" then appears onscreen followed by "HOT" - where the round red speaker is used as a substitute for the letter 'O' in the word. In Inna's first scene she has straightened loose hair, a butterfly-like necklace wearing a beige short dress and dark-coloured bracelet, dancing to a yellow-lighted background.
The video then moves to a nightclub scene where a DJ is busy DJing, wearing a dark pair of sunglasses and a beanie headpiece. A club full of people can then be seen dancing to a light green background. Scenes then move to two different girls dancing separately. The one wearing a short white top and black pants dancing to an orange background. The other wearing a short black top and white pants dancing to a red background. In Inna's next scene, she is singing into a microphone built-in from the ceiling next to the round red speaker. She is wearing a very long, fluttered grey dress which is blown up and down during the scene by special wind effects. She also is wearing grey-coloured make-up and eyelash extensions - singing in a red background. Another girl can be seen dancing, with blonde hair and a grey hoodie. The scenes move back and forth, rapidly throughout the music video between Inna, the main dancers and the club.
In Inna's final scene she has her hair tied-back and is wearing a tight black vintage pants over a white sleeveless top dancing to a pink background. Three of the main dancers then come together for a routine dance and the video ends with Inna and Play & Win standing next to each other.
Inna performed live "Hot" on severral concert dates, including the Sopot Festival, where she was nominated at "Best International Song". In that night she was the third. She has also performed the song in her Romanian and European 2009-2010 promo tour. A major performance of the song was also at the Starfloor 2010 in the Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy venue, where she performed "Hot" in a medley with "Amazing" and "Deja Vu". There, she was accompanied by the percussion band Sensor and the frontman of Marker, called GuitarINNA. She performed "Hot" as an encore in her INNA en Concert tour in 2011 and it was part of her setlist for the INNA: Live la Arenele romane gig in Bucharest, the capital city of her homecountry. The song was also performed during her I Am the Club Rocker Tour in Mexico and the United States, where it served as an encore to the San Francisco and Las Vegas gigs.
The song received mixed and favorable reviews from the music critics, praising the tune, whilst not being that pleased with the lyrics. Fraser McAlpine from the BBC Chart Blog said that:
"Yesyesyes English is not her first language - she's Romanian - and she is clearly using the words to this song as a kind of percussion to break up the music. Unless you good-at-crossworders have anything to add at this point?(...)Assuming there IS no answer, 'Hot' serves to prove that sense is not a prerequisite of happiness in music. In fact, it's where a lot of pop songs fall down. The recent crop of Sugababes singles all tripped over the same problem, attempting to find a way for the girls in the band to describe how sexy they are. We don't really need that bit explaining. Thankfully, Inna's pleading gobbledegook is a far more appealing proposition, especially when those ticky synths vaguely recall the glory of Boney M's 'Ma Baker' (LOOK! Lady GaGa's fashion parents!). You could argue that this is fly-by-night dance music, that nothing really happens after the first minute or so and that it won't stand the test of time. It's basically Jedward's record contract in song form. But that's missing the point. This IS now, if you can't enjoy transitory stuff while it's happening, it doesn't make you too clever to be duped by silly tricks, it makes you the guy at the party who sits in the corner and won't dance. Perfect crossworder material, in other words."
Robert Copsey from Digital Spy enjoyed the song, admitting that he discovered Inna and "Hot" quite late:
"You know when you feel like you're the last person to know what's going on? Well, that's exactly how we feel about Inna's new single - probably because it isn't actually that new. The Romanian-born singer - real name Elena Alexandra Apostoleanu - released 'Hot' across the continent last year and her eponymous album has been number one in every Eastern European country you could think of. She's even had success in the US, topping Billboard's Dance Airplay chart.So, what's all the fuss about? Well, the track is essentially two-and-a-half minutes of pure and stylised European electro-house centered around a nagging hook of "Fly like you do it / Like you're high like you do it / Like you fly like do it / Like a woman". Sleekly produced by Romanian dance trio Play & Win, its biggest draw is that it's so simple. Simple but effective though - expect its trancey, hypnotic beats to coax you onto the dancefloor next time you're out on the town and up for a strut."
Paul Lester from The Guardian said in his Inna review that "Things get better on the album's title track, which at a pinch suggests Ibiza-era New Order in a clinch with David Guetta, though that's being generous (ie exaggerating aka lying). The "la la la" bit by the male singer sounds as though a hunky waiter from the local beach cafe wandered into shot."

It later entered the chart's top ten on July 12 at number nine and went on to peak at number one on July 26 for one week.
