The song was a hit in the United Kingdom, reaching number four on the UK Singles Chart in July 1990, and later became a dance hit in the United States, reaching the top five on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart. A music video, directed by Richard Stanley, accompanied the song on its release, featuring McBroom performing in a tropical jungle-like scene mixed with scenes in an almost Third World setting, and visualizes the overall atmosphere of the song.

In 1998 the song was remixed and released as a single. Entitled "Naked in the Rain '98", the remixed version reached number 22 on the UK Singles Chart.
