On July 26 2003, Hollywood hit #1 on Billboard’s Hot Maxi-Single Sales chart (renamed Hot Dance Sales), where it would spend an incredible seven weeks.
After an initial five-week run at the top, the single began its descent only to return to #1 for an additional two weeks following Madonna’s performance of Hollywood/Like A Virgin at the MTV Video Music Awards, which incorporated Stuart Price’s remix of Hollywood (released under one of his many pseudonyms, Jacques Lu Cont) and spurred renewed interest in the maxi-single.
Hollywood-one of Madonna’s more infamous songs!
I don’t get it how it did not enter the Hot 100? Someone please explain.
I think the total lack of airplay killed its chances of charting on the HOT 100. American radio unfortunately ignored it.
