16 Years Ago: Faith Hill Hits No. 1 With ‘This Kiss’

Faith Hill This Kiss Cover
Warner Bros.

16 years ago today (May 16, 1998) was a big day for Faith Hill. It was on this date that the songstress landed at the top of the charts with her single, ‘This Kiss,’ which stayed in the No. 1 spot for three consecutive weeks.

The song was the debut single from her album ‘Faith,’ which sold more than six million units. ‘This Kiss,’ which was written by Beth Nielsen Chapman, Robin Lerner and Annie Roboff, was also Hill’s first Top 10 on both the pop and adult contemporary charts.

The accompanying video for the tune featured the Mississippi native jumping from flower to flower, and riding bees and butterflies. Hill, who was pregnant with her second child Maggie (with husband Tim McGraw), had to make several last-minute costume changes for the video to accompany her expanding stomach.

‘This Kiss’ was used in the 1998 hit movie, ‘Practical Magic,’ starring Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman. The songstress also included the song in her 2007 compilation album, ‘The Hits.’

Hill performed the song in 2009 during a two-night performance at the Hollywood Bowl, backed by an orchestra, as well as in 2011 as part of a taping of ‘CMT Crossroads’ with the Pretenders.
