It was also subsequently a hit in eleven other countries and was responsible for bringing Brown to greater public attention. Additionally, it was the 35th best-selling single of 1989 in the UK. The song was featured in the soundtrack of the 1992 film Bitter Moon.

Jamelia covered the song after the makers of the 2004 film Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason approached her to record it to illustrate an integral part of the film. Jamelia instantly accepted the offer and explained how much she was a fan of the character and of the first film. Her cover version was met with critical acclaim, especially for her vocal performance on the track. The exclamation mark at the end of the title was dropped for the Jamelia release.
The formats of "DJ" and "Stop" received a staggered release. On 1 November 2004 the two-track CD one was released along with the "DJ" CD release. Due to time constraints, the "Stop" music video (directed by Alex Hemming) could not be added in time to make the 1 November release date and so the CD two was released a week later on 8 November 2004. This was also the first DVD single release from Jamelia. It is rumoured that the DVD single was released because the "DJ" video was not finished in time to be added to the Thank You – Live DVD release. The single release also contained a cover of Wham!'s "Last Christmas".
