Faith | The album

October 30, 1987


Just a few weeks after George’s first solo album – entirely written and produced by himself – was released. Faith peaked at number one on the UK Albums Chart and US Billboard 200. It stayed for 51 non-consecutive weeks inside the Billboard 200 top 10, including 12 weeks at number one. It was also the first album by a white solo artist to hit number one on the Billboard Top Black Albums chart. Faith spawned four number one singles on the Billboard Hot 100: Faith, Father Figure, One More Try and Monkey, making George Michael the only British male solo artist to have four number one hits from one album on the Billboard Hot 100.
