\"Be with You\" is a song by Spanish singer-songwriter Enrique Iglesias, released on 29 February 2000 through Interscope Records as the third single from Iglesias's debut English-language studio album, Enrique (1999). It was co-written by Iglesias and produced by Mark Taylor and Brian Rawling, the team responsible for Cher's hit song \"Believe\". Iglesias once stated that he initially came up with the lyrics of the song while taking a break from recording in London's Hyde Park. He also recorded a Spanish version of the song titled \"Sólo me importas tú\".
\"Be with You\" became Iglesias's second number-one single on the US Billboard Hot 100 and received a Grammy nomination for Best Dance Recording in 2001. It was also successful internationally, reaching number four in Spain, number one in the Czech Republic, number two in Canada, and the top 20 in Finland, Germany, Hungary, Italy, New Zealand, and Sweden. It was certified gold in Sweden for shipments of over 15,000. \"Be with You\" was not released in the United Kingdom due the underperformance of previous single \"Rhythm Divine\" there.
In the United States, \"Be with You\" became Iglesias's second number-one single there after \"Bailamos\", claiming the top spot for three consecutive weeks. It also topped the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart and also charted in the top 20 in Canada, Finland, Germany, Italy, New Zealand, Spain, and Sweden. The Spanish version of the song (\"Sólo me importas tú\") reached peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot Latin Tracks chart. In the United Kingdom, the song was not released since the previous single, \"Rhythm Divine\", stalled at number 45 on the UK Singles Chart in December 1999.
The official music video for this single was directed by Dave Meyers and starts out with Iglesias and a bunch of friends (played by Iglesias's real life friends including Gerardo Mejía) stopping at a road side store. While messing around in the store Iglesias makes eye contact with the shy girl working the counter, his love interest in the video (played by Shannon Elizabeth). When the group leaves the store, Iglesias drives their jeep while the others perform various stunts including car surfing and interacting with young women in another jeep riding beside them.
The group stops at a foot of Vasquez Rocks where Iglesias notices Elizabeth, now wearing more provocative clothes and with a lot more confidence; he and the group follow her to a Nightclub (the now closed Point Night Club in Los Angeles) where Iglesias searches the packed dance floor for his love interest when the music stops and changes to that of the popular Thunderpuss 2000 remix which builds up with shots of break dancers until the music turns back to the album version of the song. Iglesias manage to find Elizabeth who gropes him and leads him out of the club. Outside, the two kiss as fireworks go off. The entire video is intercut with shots of Iglesias singing in front of a tribal background.
The Spanish version of the video is exactly the same as the English version, with the exception of Iglesias mouthing the words in Spanish in front of the tribal background and when he interacts with Elizabeth.
