Perpetual bliss and pivotal moment accompanied by an upbeat country tempo make up Faith Hill’s “This Kiss” hit song. The lyrics and melody were on point for a fairytale love fantasy when you kissed someone you love.
“This Kiss” Happily Ever After
Everyone knows Faith Hill has been married for many years to her beau, Tim McGraw. She has found her happily ever after, and so she wants to share it with her fans. Moreover, Faith Hill songs are purely iconic because of her distinct and emotional vocals. She’ll make you feel what she wants you to feel, and that’s her power. No doubt was seen on her track “This Kiss” as it also referred to princesses like Cinderella and Snow White.
Robin Lerner, Annie Roboff, and Beth Nielsen Chapman wrote “This Kiss” and partook in Faith Hill’s third studio album, Faith. It was released in 1998 as the beautiful country superstar’s first single. Listening to the song gives you an uptempo beat where the story shares the female narrator’s feeling of happiness being in love and accepting her lover’s kiss.
Moreover, the music video for the song features Hill jumping from flower to flower. She is also seen riding bees and butterflies thanks to CGI. True to its message, it became a fantasy world where Hill seems to be the ruler. She was pregnant with her second child, whom the couple named Maggie, during the filming, making several last-minute costume changes for the video to go with her expanding stomach.
Faith Hill’s Song Achievement
Brilliantly produced is how Billboard’s Larry Flick describes “This Kiss” track. He further explained how the clever lyrics and the uptempo tune boasts an infectious melody made for the radio. Critics even complimented the country songstress vocals as jubilant, passionate, and thoroughly appealing, much to her fans’ delight.
In addition to that, it’s really no wonder why the song became Faith Hill’s fourth solo number one plus fifth in her overall career history for the US Billboard Hot Country Songs chart and Canada RPM Country Tracks chart. Moreover, it’s a crossover hit, too, as it peaked to number seven on the Billboard Hot 100. It even reached number three on the Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks chart. All of these achievements were done in 1998 to early 1999 charts. And just like other Faith Hill songs, it did well on the charts that it made history for the country music icon.
