Music video[edit]

A screenshot from "Into the Night"

The music video features a man (Freddy Rodriguez of Ugly Betty and Six Feet Under) about to jump off a roof when he sees a girl (Dania Ramirez of Heroes) dancing. He falls for her immediately and starts to follow her. Eventually he follows her to a club where he watches her dance, and at the end they dance together. Meanwhile, Kroeger and Santana play on the roof of the building. The video seems to integrate both the Hispanic and North American cultures, as a symbol of the two cultures coming together in the song itself.[citation needed]


"Into The Night" was a crossover hit as it peaked at #26 on the Billboard Hot 100, Santana's last top 40 hit in USA. In Canada it was an even bigger hit, due to its qualifying as Canadian Content. It peaked at #2 for 3 consecutive weeks on the Canadian Hot 100. It also reached #4 in Australia. Heard through the film "Live Free or Die Hard" (2007), Into The Night made a smash hit debut in the film industry.
