"10 Minutes" is a song recorded by Romanian singer Inna for her debut studio album, Hot (2009), featuring Romanian trio Play & Win. It was released as the fifth single from the record on 25 January 2010. Written and produced by Play & Win members Sebastian Barac, Radu Bolfea and Marcel Botezan, "10 Minutes" is a synth-pop and electropop track stylized to fit the style of music consumed in the United States. Its style was also regarded as a departure from her past work by both Inna and one critic.

Reviewers praised "10 Minutes" and deemed it as one of Inna's highlights in her career. The song was aided by an accompanying music video uploaded on 26 June 2010 onto the singer's YouTube channel. Shot by British director Paul Boyd in London, United Kingdom, it mainly portrays Inna residing at a club with fellow background dancers. For further promotion, Inna also performed "10 Minutes" on several occasions, including at the 2010 Romanian Music Awards and during her own Inna: Live la Arenele Romane gig in Bucharest, Romania in 2011. Commercially, the song was a modest hit, reaching the top 20 in a few countries.

Background and composition[edit]

"10 Minutes" was written and produced by Romanian trio Play & Win members Sebastian Barac, Radu Bolfea and Marcel Botezan, and they also received credit as featured artists.[3] It was sent to Romanian radio station Radio 21 on 25 January 2010, as the fourth single from Inna's debut studio album Hot (2009),[3] where it was played for the first time during the "Muzica Ta" ("Your Music") radio programme hosted by Marian Soci.[4] It was leaked before its release.[1]

Musically, "10 Minutes" is a synth-pop and electropop track,[1] while acting as a departure from Inna's past work to fit the stye of music consumed in the United States.[2] In an interview with Romanian news television network Realitatea TV, Inna confessed: "It will not resemble any of my [previous] singles, it will be something else, the market is already getting enough of the same [sounds], and ['10 Minutes'] will not be slower, but rhythmed."[2]

Reception[edit]

Neeti Sarkar, writing for The Hindu, praised the dance nature of "10 Minutes",[1] while an editor of Romanian radio station Pro FM listed the song in their list of "16 hits with which Inna made history".[5] Commercially, the single failed to achieve the success of its predecessors. On native Romanian Top 100, it peaked at number 11 in May 2010, acting as her first entry to not reach the top 10.[6] It earned 6,266 airplay spins on Romanian radio stations according to the year-end chart published in 2010, charting at number 42.[7] On France's SNEP chart, "10 Minutes" entered at number eight as the highest new entry in December 2010, while simultaneously "Déjà Vu" (2009), "Amazing" (2009) and "Hot" (2008) were ranked at positions 21, 42 and 77, respectively. The song fell to number 11 the next week, while reaching its peak position again in January 2011.[8] "10 Minutes" further reached the top 10 in Czech Republic,[9] on the dance chart of Hungary,[10] and on ZPAV's Polish Airplay New component chart in Poland.[11]

Music video and promotion[edit]

An official music video for "10 Minutes" was uploaded onto Inna's official YouTube channel on 26 June,[12] preceded by the premiere of a teaser on 25 June 2010.[13] Reviewing the preview, an editor of Romanian website Urban.ro stated that "taking into account the director and the location, I was expecting more, but maybe the video will look better."[13] The clip was filmed by British director Paul Boyd in London, United Kingdom on 9 June 2010.[14] A behind-the-scenes video was also released subsequently on 16 June 2010.[14] The video begins with Inna doing her make-up in front of a mirror and continues with her dancing in a club and performing choreography with fellow background dancers.[12] Jonahan Harmad from French website Pure Charts thought that Inna "does not change a winning recipe: pretty girls, dancing and a club."[15]

In 2010, the song was performed at the Romanian Music Awards in a medley with "Amazing", "Señorita" (2010) and "Sun Is Up" (2010) on 10 July,[16] and at Kasho Club in Brașov, Romania on 28 December.[17] Another two performances followed in 2011, at the Viva Comet Awards on 24 February,[18] and during her own Inna: Live la Arenele Romane gig in Bucharest, Romania on 17 May, where she arrived by helicopter "like a diva".[19]
