The single was released to radio while "I Don't Wanna" was still at radio, "Try Again" had peaked by the time "I Don't Wanna" was phased out. "Try Again" was one of her most successful songs in both the American charts and the international charts. It was the first song ever to reach number one on the Billboard Hot 100 based solely on the strength of its radio airplay.

The song was listed 10th on The Village Voice's 2000 Pazz & Jop critics' poll. In November 2002, NME magazine ranked "Try Again" # 93 on their list of the 100 Greatest Singles of All Time.

In 2003 German metal band Knorkator covered "Try Again" for their album Ich hasse Musik, turning the piece into a crushing orchestral industrial metal piece.

In an issue of Vibe magazine, it was revealed that Try Again along with Are You That Somebody were not Aaliyah's favorite songs, but recorded because of Static Major.

"Try Again" was nominated in 43rd Grammy Awards for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance and two Soul Train awards for Best R&B/Soul Single and R&B/Soul or Rap Music Video. "Try Again" won two MTV awards for Best Female Video and Best Video from a Film.
