ReleaseEdit

The song was first released as a single by Melodian Records in Australia in September 1995, but was not released in the United Kingdom until May 1996 due to problems regarding the administration of Andre's UK record label, Mushroom Records.

Critical receptionEdit

Music & Media wrote: "Andre's sunshine reggae single automatically conjures up tropical beaches, palm and coconut trees. As this summer seems to be without end, the chances look good for the Australian."[1]

Chart performancesEdit

The song reached the top of the charts in New Zealand and number eight in Australia, and peaked at number two on the UK Singles Chart. Following a lengthy campaign on The Chris Moyles Show in 2004,[2] and Andre's appearance on the British reality show I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!, the song was re-released as the first single from Andre's fourth studio album The Long Road Back, peaking at number one in February 2004.[3][4]

Music videoEdit

Filmed in Thailand, the video depicts Ranx and Andre on a beach. There are montages of several women and Peter and Bubbler dance in a lagoon shirtless and in their jeans. Andre is later seen dancing underneath a waterfall, a more iconic part of the video. Andre is last seen walking along the beach shirtless and later rolls in the sand as the sun sets.
