Boom Daily Throwback: George Michael 'Faith'


Revisiting this in honor of George Michael:

On this date way back in 1987 George Michael's Faith album went to number one on Billboard's album chart. . Since its release  Faith has sold more than 25 million copies worldwide and is listed as one of Rolling Stone's top 500 albums of all time. It was Michael's first venture since leaving Wham! and most of the tracks have a serious R&B slant. Right out of the gate Michael showed that he wasn't afraid of a little controversy and by the time that all was said and done, he appeared to enjoy stirring the pot and making listeners form opinions about some serious issues. 

The first single, "I Want Your Sex" ensured that Faith would debut in the top spot on Billboard's charts and the second single, "Faith", helped to cement its dominance. Over the course of about 18 months six different singles hit hard on the charts, with their being something for just about everyone. Check out a few of the classic videos from Faith below. What one is your favorite?
