Not much change to the original track however Inna has leant her vocals to the track, as a European release, yet to be announced. This is for sure one of the best if not the best track off the album. It has already charted in Number 1 in Greece

This song was massive around Europe....it's been in the top 10 airplay in Greece, Turkey, Romania etc for literally months and went #1 in Greece and it wasn't even an official release from AB.

I don't think Inna adds anything to the song at all. She's covered the song for her own album..

But it was how you say 'popular' just because of Inna and definitely not Alexandra

Inna has only just recorded the song. Alexandra's solo version was the hit actually.

Alex's version was popular

Inna's version is a cover of the same song
The song in the OP is just a mash-up of the 2 together


Inna's version didn't surface until a few weeks ago when she premiered the album sampler

It was a hit BEFORE Inna even recorded the song, so...

OK my mistake Just I couldn't imagine that Alexandre Burke could have a hit (although airplay top 10 is hardly a hit..) anywhere with her last album

True. I couldn't avoid the song for months! Not that I'm complaining, because it's catchy. I don't see what Inna can offer to it though. The song has peaked in Europe.

I love this song! Shame it was never officially released as the third single, but maybe after the flop that was Let It Go they didn't want to take any more chances by releasing a third single.

On the video comments loads of people from Greece said that they kept hearing this song on the radio every 5 minutes...I'm quite surprised that it became such a big hit considering it wasn't even released officially....

I don't think Inna's solo version will be as good, her voice isn't that strong, but she is very popular so it could do well again if she released it as a single.

It's true. It's been played quite a lot here. It doesn't need to be an official release, because, on the one hand, we're a very small market, so nobody cares about official release dates and, on the other hand, it was a hit in the clubs way before it was a hit on the radio and the clubs usually play a lot of songs that are not even singles to begin with.

Too bad there wasn't a video though. It could have really been a smash in many European countries. It's still her biggest hit in Greece ever though. Her previous singles weren't even played.

Full version of Inna singing the song by herself has surfaced. Definitely think Alexandra's version is better.

I see the standards for a 'hit' are dropping.

Its nothing about quality, just the fact that a song going to number 1 in one country, with a pretty small music market, and going top ten on airplay charts, in countries with similarly small music markets, nowadays qualifies as a 'massive hit'.

If a song hits #1 for weeks on end anywhere it's a hit. Bob The Builder anyone?

It was a hit all over Europe, that's why Inna covered it. For someone who's apparently a "flop" that's pretty impressive, there are many big UK acts who have zero success in Europe despite them being "small music markets" as you put it.

I think Alex made a mistake not releasing some kind of official video for it, but I think she was having some problems with her label at the time, the success of the song was quite unexpected. I think Inna will see success with it though, if she decides to release it.

I actually think this should have been Alexandra's lead single in the first place. Inna just hasn't got the chops for it.

Apart from Greece where was it actually a hit?

The song would sound better if Alexandra's voice wasn't autotuned . It's okay though.
