Creed- Human Clay: Top 10 Singles in US and UK

Creed- Human Clay
United States- Creed may already achieved multi-platinum success over their previous album, however, it was their first time to reach the top 10 on Billboard Hot 100. At least four singles were released but let’s see what song achieved a high position at the charts:
Higher- #7
With Arms Wide Open- #1
Two singles achieve big success in United States from the album “Human Clay”. Their biggest hit from the record was “With Arms Wide Open” for reaching number 1, their first and only number 1 hit. The single “Higher” was also a success for reaching number 7. Two singles, though, failed to chart. Despite that, Cred was one of teh top rock bands at that time because of the Diamond award for teh album, and two singles reached the top 10 which bands rarely achieve.

United Kingdom- Creed did not achieve the success they had in United States, where they had two top 10 hits. In United Kingdom, they still managed to garner two singles to chart. It started with “Higher” which only peaked at number 47. But they were more successful with their single “With Arms Wide Open” when it took the number 13 position. Obviously, “With Arms Wide Open” was their biggest hit from the album “Human Clay”.

Both two songs “Higher” and “With Arms Wide Open” charted in United States and United Kingdom. But “With Arms Wide Open” was the biggest hit as it had the highest chart position in both countries. It even went to number 1 on Billboard Hot 100, which rarely reach by any rock band. Both songs got significant airplay and even chart placement on radio stations in my country, but “WIth Arms Wide Open” was more popular and I often heard it played in our school back then. I also chose the song to share, so I hope you will like the ballad rock song:
