Gossip singles chronology

"Heavy Cross" is a song by American band Gossip. It was released on April 28, 2009 as the first single from the band's fourth album Music for Men. The song was the first international hit for Gossip, reaching the top ten across Europe, in Australia and on the US Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs chart from mid- to late 2009. It peaked just outside the top 10 in New Zealand, and made the top 40 in Ireland and the UK; Gossip had already achieved two top 40 singles in the latter region, with "Standing in the Way of Control" and "Listen Up!" in 2006.

The single was especially successful in Germany, where it was certified triple gold for selling over 450,000 copies[1] and is, as of September 2010, the "most successful internationally produced single of all time".[2] As of April 2011, the single had spent 97 weeks on the German Singles Chart without ever reaching No. 1, making it the second-longest running single ever there.[3] It spent also 27 weeks in that chart's top ten, making it the ninth-longest run there.[4] In 2011, it was included in a J'Adore advert from Dior, making it rise to fame again.
