Today in Madonna History: November 16, 1996

On November 16 1996, Madonna’s You Must Love Me debuted at #22 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the USA. You Must Love Me was the first single released from the EVITA soundtrack. The track was written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice.

Jay’s Note: The success of this single is proof that Madonna’s power over radio and sales was un-stoppable. Imagine a song like this becoming a hit at radio and retail today? Not possible!

  1. She’s pretty much shut out now. 80s and 90s oldie stations play her hits from those decades, but she’s pretty much ignored by contemporary radio nowadays. “American Life” was the end of Madonna the radio star, at least in the US.
