Chart performance

The single was released as a digital download and to Swedish radio on 8 October and entered the chart the same week on place 5. The next week it climbed to its peak position, 2, [2] where it stayed for 2 weeks. "Breathing Your Love" was also released as a physical single in Sweden, selling in excess of 10,000 copies which resulted in a Gold certification. [3]

In October 2009 it was announced that "Breathing Your Love" would be released in the UK on Upside Records under licence from Sony Music UK. The single was originally to be released in late November 2009 but due to lack of promotion and Darin's entrance into the 2010 Melodifestivalen contest it will now be released on 24 January 2010. [4] Little or no promotion has occurred in the UK to push the single, which is the reason why it has failed to chart.

Music video

The official video stars both Darin and Kat DeLuna. The video shows Darin waking up with a note at the side of his bed saying "See U there .. K" then through the video Darin appears outside a building covered with graffiti. Darin and DeLuna can furthermore be seen dancing and singing in front of colourful lights and the video ends with the pair meeting in a cafe.

Live performances

"Breathing Your Love" was Darin's first single in almost 2 years and marked a new dance sound for Darin. Darin did most of the single promotion on his own, performing the song live on various occasions, changing the lyrics "was just an empty soul..." to "was just half a man..." "...Until you stepped into my show", he did however record an exclusive acoustic performance with Kat for the Swedish website unt.tv.
