The song was recorded for the soundtrack of the film Step Up 2: The Streets and features the actors Robert Hoffman and Briana Evigan from the movie.

"Do You Know (The Ping Pong Song)" (2007)
The music video accompanying "Do You Know? (The Ping Pong Song)" brought a sense of humor to the Enrique Iglesias video repertoire.

"Don't Turn Off the Lights" (2002)
