The song was a Latin-themed track and was fairly uptempo with its beats. It was not added to many radio playlists at the time, though featured prominently in the promotion for Cosima's debut album.
The single was the first by an independent artist to debut at number one on the Australian ARIA Charts(Record holder). It remained at number one for 2 weeks and was the best selling independent Australian single for 2004. The fourth consecutive release by an Australian Idol finalist to debut at number one (after Guy Sebastian, Shannon Noll and Paulini), it stayed in the top five for over a month and was certified Platinum for shipments of over 70,000 units within weeks. There was fierce competition at the time from other strong-sellers such as Missy Higgins, who was prevented from reaching the pole position because of the single. Two years later, it re-entered the Australian Independent Charts at number eleven.
In 2004, Dima Bilan recorded a Russian language version of the song called "Noch bez tebja" for his album Na Beregu Neba.
