On 24 May 2012, Natalie Horler announced via Facebook that a new single of dance group Cascada was coming up. On 2 June, Horler performed the song in a bar opening, and then the speculation that the song would be the new single begun. On 9 June, the single was set in Amazon for pre-order. On 22 June, the single was released along with the music video. The song was included on their compilation album, The Best of Cascada (2013). On 26 April 2014, an audio was posted on YouTube where, during a call in session on a Dominican Republic radio station, a caller asked for the song "Are those reebok or nike?". The host of the station was confused as there aren't any songs with that title and the caller insisted that the song is very popular. Thinking that maybe the man misheard the lyrics the host put on "The Rhythm of the Night", and, to the euphoria of the host, the caller exclaimed that this was the song that he was looking for. The audio currently has less than 2 million views and many re-uploads.[39]
