The single reached the number four position in the UK in 1986, and rose to number six pop and number one adult contemporary in the U.S. in 1987. The song also resulted in a Grammy Award nomination for Best Pop Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group.
The single was written and performed while the group was still a trio. It would become one of their biggest hits, and the song most closely associated with the act. In the U.S., “Breakout” remains a staple of adult contemporary and smooth jazz radio station playlists.
