Elena Paparizou and Nikos Panagiotidis (Antique) became famous worldwide with this single.

Antique was a Greek singing duo consisting of Elena Paparizou (Έλενα Παπαρίζου in Greek) and Nikos Panagiotidis (Νίκος Παναγιωτίδης in Greek) originating from Sweden which combined Greek popular music and lyrics with a Nordic dance pop beat. Both Paparizou and Panagiotidis were born and raised in Sweden by Greek parents. They were the first ever to be nominated for with a non-Greek song for a Swedish Grammi. In 2001 Antique were selected to represent Greece at the Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen with the song "Die for You", sung in a blend of English and Greek, ending with a third place behind only Estonia and hosts Denmark.
Antique was targeted towards the Greek diaspora and sang traditional material in mixed Greek and English. After rising to recognition in Greece following their participation in the Eurovision Song Contest 2001, they witnessed moderate success until Paparizou embarked on a solo career in 2003 and released her debut album Protereotita (2004), with emphasis on more pop sounds in addition to laïko. Paparizou then won the Eurovision Song Contest 2005 for Greece, with the song "My Number One", something which significantly contributed to her career....
