‘Burn’ made history by becoming the fastest-added Australian song of all time on Australian radio.

In 2000, the song was covered by American country singer Jo Dee Messina and reached #2 on the US Hot Country Songs chart.

In 2001, Tina was awarded a BMI Songwriter Award for co-writing ‘Burn’.

An Italian version of the song, ‘Ti Voglio Qui’, was also released as a single, and a Spanish recording was a bonus track on ‘In Deep’ in certain countries.
