Believe by Cher was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, October 31, 1998 spending 7 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. Many great songs were written and recorded very quickly in short bursts of inspiration. This wasn't one of them. About six years in the making, this song was the result of the painstaking efforts of six songwriters and at least three producers attempting to create a massive hit for Cher. "Believe" was a massive hit in the UK before it was even released in America. In the UK, the single was released on October 19, 1998; it debuted at #1 on Halloween and spent seven weeks on top, becoming the biggest UK hit by a solo female artist, selling about 1.7 million copies. In America, it was a slow build; released as a single on November 10, the song first charted (at #99) on December 19, 1998 and climbed to #1 on March 13, 1999, where it stayed for four weeks. In the UK, it was the biggest-selling single of 1998; in America, it was the biggest-selling single of 1999.
