In addition to its number 31 peak on the Billboard Hot 100 in December 2001, it peaked at number 13 on Billboard's Hot Modern Rock Tracks chart. In Europe, the single entered at many charts, including the countries Austria, New Zealand, Netherlands at lower numbers, but in Italy, the single went to peak at number 8.[2]

  2. "Rosemary"
  3. "Can't Get You Off My Mind" (Live performance)

Music video

The music video was directed by Samuel Bayer, who also directed Black Velveteen for Kravitz. The video starts with a QVC-like program with a woman selling products such as expensive jewelry. Suddenly, there is a signal interference that leads to show Kravitz and his band performance at a floating base in the sea, while they are being surrounded by a helicopter. Much of the music video has special effects designed to make the video seem to have tracking issues.

Awards

Kravitz was awarded the Grammy Award for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance in 2002 for his performance on this song. It was his fourth consecutive win of this award.
