The song spent 13 weeks at #1 in the US, making it the all-time #1 female duet in US chart history and the top-selling US single in 1998 with over 2 million copies sold. It topped the Canadian charts for 15 weeks.
The Hot 100 success was aided by a Billboard rule making songs that weren't sold as singles in the US ineligible for the chart - a stipulation that was lifted later in 1998. This kept "Torn
" by Natalie Imbruglia and "Iris
" by the Goo Goo Dolls - both not sold as singles - from competing on the chart.
