“Breathe” Tops AC Chart

Faith Hill has topped Billboard’s Adult Contemporary chart for the first time in her career with “Breathe.” The country star crossed over into the AC radio format in 1998 with “This Kiss,” but that song peaked at No. 3 on the chart. Hill is the first American female to top the AC chart since the week of Nov. 15, 1997, when LeAnn Rimes completed an 11-week reign with “How Do I Live,” reports Billboard. Since then, the AC chart has been dominated by British singers such as Elton John and Phil Collins; Canadians like Shania Twain, Sarah McLachlan and Celine Dion; and Australians such as Savage Garden.
