Cover of Jennifer Paige

From Jennifer Paige and 97 other releases

“Crush” was written by Andy Goldmark, Mark Muller, Berny Cosgrove and Kevin Clark. It was released as the first single from her debut album, Jennifer Paige (1998). “Crush” reached #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and remains Paige’s biggest hit to date, topping the charts in six countries in 1998. The music video for “Crush” was produced by Kati Haberstok and directed by David Hogan.

After Paige recorded “Crush” in April 1998, producer Andy Goldmark immediately took a copy of “Crush” to legendary Los Angeles radio station KIIS-FM. During the first week of May, KIIS-FM became the first radio station to begin playing “Crush”. “We had no pictures, photography, gotten it mastered, mass-produced it, nothing…”, Jennifer said. Edel made an initial press run of 20,000 copies of “Crush” which sold very quickly, and “Crush” became KIIS-FM’s most requested song.
“Crush” became an international hit. It peaked at #3 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and was certified Gold by the RIAA. It went to number one in Spain, Denmark, New Zealand, South Africa, Latvia, Australia, where it was certified 2x Platinum, and Canada, where it spent five weeks at number one on the Canadian RPM singles chart. “Crush” also reached the Top 5 in the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Hungary, and #6 in Ireland, The Netherlands and Norway.
