On this day in 1997, Tina Arena released ‘Burn’ as the lead single from her #1 album, ‘In Deep’.
The single debuted at #2 in Australia.
‘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.
