Release

"Hot" was first released in Poland, via Roton Records, on August 4, 2009, followed by the Russian release on September 22, 2009. In Czech Republic, Universal Music released a 17-track edition of "Hot" on February 22, 2010, which featured a new song titled "10 Minutes" and special remixes of the hit singles "Hot", "Love" and "10 Minutes". The Romanian release date was pushed off from August 2009 to November 2009 and then to Spring 2010. Inna and her producers Play & Win stated that they delayed the Romanian launching because they want it to be perfect and they had to add new songs in order to create the greatest album of the year. It finally was released in March 2010 and included both the radio edit and the club remix of "10 Minutes" as well as the U.S. Version of "Hot" as new tracks. The album later was released in the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Spain and Germany because of the overwhelming success of "Hot" and "Amazing", which both entered several European charts. The Spanish version of the album includes the bonus track "Un Momento", a collaboration with Spanish remixer, producer and DJ Juan Magan.

Before Christmas 2010, a CD+DVD Collectors Edition of the album, entitled "Very Hot", was released in France. It features remixes of "Hot" and "Love" as well as Inna's Christmas track "I Need You For Christmas", which was written and produced by Play & Win and released by Roton Records in Romania at Christmas 2009. The edition also includes a DVD with all of Inna's music videos. In 2011, the album was re-released again and included "I Need You For Christmas" and the new song "Sun is Up".

On June 5, 2011, "Hot" was released in United Kingdom, featuring "Sun Is Up", "Un Momento" and remixes of "Hot", "Amazing", "Déjà Vu" and "10 Minutes".

The Romanian cover artwork was decided by Inna's fans, who had the chance to vote for their favourite artwork out of five pictures.[1] Inna’s labels released every new edition of "Hot" with different cover artwork.
