"Y Ahora Te Vas" has been also included on several compilation albums released by Los Bukis, including their two number-one albums 30 Inolvidables (2002) and Crónica de Dos Grandes (2004); this song also has been covered by a handful of performers, including Conjunto Atardecer, Victor Garcia, El Grupo Santa Clara, Inicial de Durango, Los Komplices, Mar Azul, Tito Nieves, Banda R-15, Notable, La Nueva Luna, Estela Nuñez, Orquesta Noche Sabrosa, Otro Sentido, Lefty Perez, Raulin Rodriguez, Raulin Rosendo and Los 6 de Durango.

The song debuted on the Billboard Hot Latin Tracks chart at number 45 on February 20, 1988 and climbed to the top ten five weeks later. It reached the top position of the chart on April 23, 1988, replacing "Debo Hacerlo" by Mexican singer-songwriter Juan Gabriel and being replaced one week later by Ana Gabriel's "Ay Amor". "Y Ahora Te Vas" ranked at number twelve in the Hot Latin Tracks Year-End Chart of 1988 and became the third top ten single for the group in the chart, after "Este Adiós" (1986) and "Tu Carcel" (1987).
