"Away" is the first single released from Spanish singer-songwriter Enrique Iglesias' Greatest Hits album.[1] The song features vocals from American pop-rap singer Sean Garrett. The single was released on 11 November 2008. "Away" was originally intended to be on Sean Garrett's debut solo album "Turbo 919", but the decision was made to include it on Iglesias' album instead. The song debuted on the UK Singles Chart, at #132 on the week of the physical single release.

Music video[edit]

The video was directed by Anthony Mandler. The video premiered on TRL on 12 November 2008. The video features a cameo by Sean Garrett. In the video,[2] Iglesias is seen walking through the desert, looking back at the horrible crash in which he has died while his girlfriend, played by Niki Huey,[3] cries hysterically. Most of the video was shot in the desert.
