Music videoEdit

 
A screenshot from "Into the Night"

The music video features a man (Freddy Rodriguez of Ugly Betty and Six Feet Under) about to jump off a roof when he sees a Colombian girl (Dania Ramirez of Heroes) dancing. He falls for her immediately and starts to follow her. Eventually he follows her to a club where he watches her dance, and at the end they dance together. Meanwhile, Kroeger and Santana play on the roof of the building. The video seems to integrate both the Hispanic and North American cultures, as a symbol of the two cultures coming together in the song itself.[citation needed]

Chart performanceEdit

"Into the Night" was a crossover hit as it peaked at number 26 on the Billboard Hot 100, Santana's last top 40 hit in the US.
