For You I Will” is a song by American recording artist Monica. It was written by Diane Warren and produced by David Foster, and recorded for the soundtrack of the live-action/animated sports comedy film
Space Jam
(1996), directed by Joe Pytka and starring basketball player Michael Jordan. One out of several songs from the album to be released as a single, it was issued in February 25, 1997 by Atlantic Records and Rowdy Records. A downtempo pop and R&B ballad, the song’s lyrics involve the singer pledging love and devotion and promising to help an unnamed “you” overcome any difficulty, regardless of the magnitude.

The song debuted at an impressive number on the
Billboard
Hot 100, peaking at number four, becoming Monica’s second top five single and one of her highest-charting songs of the 1990s. It was eventually certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) on July 2, 1997, and ranked 13th on
Billboard
s Top Hot 100 Hits of 1997.[1]
Elsewhere, “For You I Will” reached the top five in the Netherlands, New Zealand, and on the Canadian Adult Contemporary chart. It was later included on her second album,
The Boy Is Mine
(1998).

Critical reception

[edit]

Alan Jones from
Music Week
wrote, “It’s one of those anthemic ballads that Warren has a knack for writing, building to a swayalong finale with Monica’s inch-perfect R&B-inflected vocals proving a perfect foil.”[2]

Music video

[edit]

The music video of “For You I Will” was directed by Francis Lawrence in a movie bengkel seni, in New York City. It inter-cuts scenes from
Space Jam
with scenes featuring Monica.
