Faith Hill's most iconic song: 'This Kiss' or 'Breathe'?
While "This Kiss" wasn't Faith's first hit, the single from her self-titled third album did pave the way for the commercial success of future singles like "Breathe" and "The Way You Love Me." The smash was her first single to peak within the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100, making her an official crossover success.
"This Kiss" was also nominated for Best Female Country Vocal Performance and Grammy Award for Best Country Song at the 1999 Grammys, but lost to Shania Twain's "You're Still the One." Regardless, the uptempo smash remains an upbeat country-pop classic.
Below are some notable lyrics to "This Kiss," per Genius.
🎶 It' s the way you love me. It's a feeling like this. It's centrifugal motion. It's perpetual bliss. It's that pivotal moment. It's, ah, impossible. This kiss, this kiss. Unstoppable. This kiss, this kiss.🎶
"Breathe" not only topped the country chart but peaked at #2 on the Hot 100. This means Faith was very close to receiving a #1 hit on both pop and country charts, an incredible feat for any country artist. Country crossovers into pop, but it rarely has topped the chart. Regardless of not topping the Hot 100, "Breathe" had the longevity to become the top Billboard Hot 100 hit single of 2000.
Below are some significant lyrics to "Breathe," per Genius.
🎶 Because I can feel you breathe. It's washing over me. Suddenly I'm melting into you. There's nothing left to prove. Baby all we need is just to be. Caught up in the touch. The slow and steady rush. Baby, isn't that the way that love's supposed to be. I can feel you breathe. Just breathe.🎶
