Album of the Day
Among the most enduring artists in pop history, Cher reinvented herself yet again with BELIEVE. The 1998 Warner Bros. collection saw the performer embrace Euro-disco with spectacular results; its title track topped more than 20 charts worldwide, becoming one of the best selling singles ever. There's plenty more beyond that hit; reinforced by such top talent as producer Todd Terry and songwriter Diane Warren, Cher turns both dancefloor fillers (“Strong Enough”) and ballads (“Dov'e L'Amore”) into anthems of empowerment. Dedicated to ex-husband Sonny Bono (who had passed away that year), the set was nominated for three Grammy Awards, winning for Best Dance Recording. Listening to the multi-platinum album, you can't help but BELIEVE in Cher, and we'll give it another spin now to wish the singer a happy birthday.
