Today in Madonna History: November 28, 1998

On November 28 1998, Madonna’s The Power Of Good-Bye hit #11 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart in the USA. The hit single from Ray Of Light was written by Madonna and Rick Nowels; produced by Madonna, William Orbit and Patrick Leonard.

Rick Nowels had this to say about his experience writing the song with Madonna:

It was a career-changing experience for me. Before that I had always done my co-writing with friends. But working with Madonna. It was the first time I had ever written one-on-one with a great artist/writer. After that I changed gears a little, and now I mostly collaborate directly with artists.

  1. Although it only hit #33 in Aus, the video was on constant repeat on all music stations. The video is perfection. The final release, Nothing Really Matters did better hitting #15 which is one of my all-time favourite songs.

  2. It still stings that this beauty peaked at 11 missing the top ten due to a chart rule change the following week of the billboard hot ­čĺ» to include tracks not available for sale but receiving radio airplay only the track was and is an absolute beauty
