Charts[edit]

The single didn't chart when it was initially released in 2010.

A release in summer of 2011 proved far more successful and the single reached No. 8 (week 33/2011) in the VG-lista, the official Norwegian Singles Chart, spending a span of 12 weeks (weeks 30 to 47/2011) mostly in the Top 20 (just one week in the Top 10).

With the song winning the Spellemannprisen best hit of the year, the single enjoyed an even greater popularity reappearing in the charts in January 2012, reaching No. 1 on the VG-lista in chart for week 4/2012.
