"Out of Nowhere" is a song by Gloria Estefan. The single was the only commercial release of the compilation Greatest Hits Vol. II.

Song history[edit]

This song was the first single released commercially for the compilation; however, this song was not so successful on the charts due its stronger dance-club background, but was a smash hit on the dance charts, becoming another Top Ten hit for Gloria Estefan at the Hot Dance Club Play chart. In 2013, the song reemerged on the Billboard Dance Chart, topping the charts for three weeks in a Metro vs. Zedd mix.

Due it success at the dance charts, the song was nominated to several dance awards: such as a Grammy Award for "Best Dance Recording" but lost to the Janet Jackson hit, "All for You." The song was also nominated for two International Latin Billboard Music Awards for "Latin Dance Club Play Track of the Year" and "Latin Dance Maxi-Single of the Year," however Estefan did not win either award.
