On November 25 1995, Madonna’s greatest ballads collection, Something To Remember, hit #6 on the Billboard Top 200 albums chart in the USA.

Madonna worked with David Foster on two of the three new songs for the collection: You’ll See and One More Chance.

Foster had this to say about working with Madonna:

“She had an amazing work ethic. She was on time every day and was really co-producing the songs with me. A lot of artists want to produce just because they can, and they don’t do a thing for the credit, which I really hate. But Madonna worked as hard as any producer I know … I liked the whole experience of working with her—the punctuality, the professionalism, and the sexiness.”

On March 7 1996, Madonna’s One More Chance single was released as the second single in Australia and Japan, and the third single in several European countries, from her ballads collection, Something to Remember.

One More Chance was written and produced by Madonna and David Foster. Foster initially did not expect Madonna would collaborate with him, as he believed that his music was not “really hip enough for her.” Madonna and Foster worked on the song during the writing and recording session for Something to Remember, in the third weekend of September 1995.

The song received positive response from music critics, who praised its musical simplicity and Madonna’s vocal delivery.  Since Madonna was busy filming the Evita, the song received little promotion and no accompanying music video.

The Spanish version of You’ll See, titled Verás, appeared as the B-side of the single release.
