Following the release of the album's promotional singles on April 13th, the song leaked to social media on approximately April 16th,  leading to its digital release being moved up to April 20th  to most markets and platforms. The music video was first posted to Robyn's Vimeo account on May 31st and the song was officially released to all markets and platforms on June 1st as Body Talk Pt.

The song peaked at the top of the Sverigetopplistan chart, becoming Robyn's first number one in her native country. The song also reached the top ten in Denmark, Norway, and the United Kingdom. The accompanying music video was directed by Max Vitali, showing Robyn walking and dancing alone on the outskirts of a club and then through the crowds, with cutscenes of her standing and dancing in front of a microphone pole in a stage-like rehearsal setting. Across genres and countries, several covers have been released.
'My interpretation of the song was always from a gay man’s perspective.'
Somebody said you got a new friend But does she love you better than I can? And, yeah, I know it's stupid But I just gotta see it for myself. I'm in the corner, watching you kiss her Oh, oh, oh And I'm right over here, why can't you see me? Oh, oh, oh. And I'm givin' it my all But I'm not the guy you're takin' home Oh, oh, oh I keep dancin' on my own, oh. I just wanna dance all night I'm all messed up, I'm so out of line Stilettos and broken bottles I'm spinning around in circles. So far away, but still so near The lights come on, the music dies But you don't see me standing here I just came to say goodbye. Sit down I'm in the corner, watching you kiss her, oh, no And I'm right over here, why can't you see me? Oh, no. So far away, but still so near The lights come on, the music dies But you don't see me standing here.
Anyway, I am not sure what the future holds for us, but it was nice to find your blog and see other couples dealing with the same challenges. I am glad that I came across your blog. I appreciate all the replies explaining the extent of the aggravation and pain I likely will face.
