The backing track of "Shape of My Heart" was used, in a slightly altered way, by rapper Nas on his song "The Message" from his 1996 album It Was Written. In the later 1990s and the 2000s, it became a popular sample in R&B and hip hop songs, possibly inspired by Nas' usage. It has been sampled or interpolated in the following:

"Take Him Back" by Monica, from the 1998 album The Boy Is Mine
"Release Me" by Blaque, from the 1999 album Blaque
"Never Let Go" by Hikaru Utada, from the 1999 album First Love (re-recorded instrumental)
"Emotional" by Carl Thomas, from the 2000 album Emotional
"Ways of the World" by Lil' Zane, from the 2000 album Young World: The Future
some live renditions of the 2001 song "Je Moest Waarschijnlijk Gaan" by Brainpower
"Rise & Fall" by Craig David, from the 2002 album Slicker Than Your Average (re-recorded instrumentals, and chorus sung - with new lyrics - by Sting)
"Shape" by the Sugababes, from the 2002 album Angels with Dirty Faces (includes the original chorus vocals as well as the song's B-section)
"Ways to Avoid the Sun" by Rain (2003) has a similar melody, which was probably inspired by this song.
"I Love You" by Kim Hyung Sup (2005), from the original soundtrack of the South Korean television series Sassy Girl Chun-hyang, has a similar melody.
"I Crave You" by Shontelle, from the 2008 album Shontelligence
"For My Soldiers" by Pastor Troy, from the 2008 album Attitude Adjuster (includes some of the song's original chorus)
"Lucid Dreams" by Juice Wrld, from the 2018 album Goodbye & Good Riddance
The song "Shape of My Heart" has been covered by several artists:

Ann-Margret, on the soundtrack to the 1996 television movie Blue Rodeo
Lee Ritenour, featuring Steve Lukather and Andy McKee, for the 2010 album 6 String Theory
Vybz Kartel
The song "Fields of Gold" has also been covered by several artists:

Eva Cassidy, on her 1996 album Live at Blues Alley
Mary Black, on her 1999 album Speaking with the Angel
I Muvrini, for the English-Corsican version "Terre d'Oru", released in 2000 and featuring Sting himself
CJ Crew, on the 2002 eurodance compilation Dancemania Speed 9
Mary Wilson, on her 2007 album Up Close: Live from San Francisco
Jay and Abby Michaels – The Harper and The Minstrel (arranged for Celtic Harp and Female Vocal), from their 2008 album For A Moment
Fourplay on their 2004 album Journey
Celtic Woman soloist, Lisa Kelly, on their PBS special Songs From the Heart
Will Martin, on his 2010 album Inspirations

Ten Summoner's Tales is the 4th solo studio album by English rock musician Sting. The title is a combined pun of his family name, Sumner, and a character in Geoffrey Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales, the summoner. Released in 1993, it explores themes of love and morality in a noticeably upbeat mood compared to his previous release, the introspective The Soul Cages released in 1991 after the loss of both his parents in the 1980s.

This album contains two US hits "If I Ever Lose My Faith in You" reached No. 17 on the Billboard Hot 100 while "Fields of Gold" got to No. 23.
