"I Can't Hate You Anymore" is a ballad performed by American singer-songwriter Nick Lachey, released as the second single from his second solo album, What's Left of Me, on October 30, 2006.

Music video[edit]

The video for "I Can't Hate You Anymore" was filmed on June 27, 2006 on a beach in Malibu, California. This date was only a few days before Lachey's divorce from singer-actress Jessica Simpson became final,[1] and coupled with the rainy atmosphere that appears in the video adds further poignancy to the melancholy lyrics of the song. The video premiered on MTV's Total Request Live on July 26, 2006 and debuted on the TRL Countdown Chart at #9 on July 27, 2006.[citation needed]

The music video utilizes a slightly different mixed track from the album version. Noticeable differences in this unnamed mix are the rising of the guitar and vocal echos during the second verse. For example, the line "you're not the person that you used to be", "used to be" echos in a following blended effect (not found on the original album release nor UK CD single). This version can only be found in the music video.

Chart performance[edit]

After spending some weeks in the "Bubbling Under" chart, the single finally debuted at No. 87 on the Billboard Hot 100, its peak position in a five-week run on the chart. The single was considered a commercial disappointment[by whom?] and failed to live up to the success of "What's Left of Me".
