Reception and charts[edit]

The single reached number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 for one week (held out of the top spot by Phil Collins's Two Hearts),[1] becoming Dayne's highest-charting single at the time, as well as number 3 on the Adult Contemporary chart and number 6 on the Dance chart. The music video also earned heavy rotation on VH-1 and MTV. The music video featured Dayne performing live during her promotional tour.

The photo featured on the single's cover would eventually become the cover for the re-release of the Tell It To My Heart making the original cover hard to come by and a collector's item.
