The release scored chart success in many European countries topping the charts in Finland, Portugal and Spain. The song also topped the chart in Israel and the Canadian dance chart while peaking at #7 on the US dance charts.

"Tribal Dance" peaked within the Top-5 in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and United Kingdom.
