vita is a soundtrack album by American singer-songwriter Madonna, released on November 12, 1996 by Warner Bros. Records. It was released to promote and accompany the 1996 motion picture, Evita. The soundtrack also includes performances by Antonio Banderas, Jonathan Pryce and Jimmy Nail, but is considered a Madonna album since the majority of the songs are sung by her. The RIAA certified it Gold and Platinum on January 24, 1997 and 5× Multi Platinum on March 29, 1999, recognizing 2.5 million shipments throughout the United States (as it is a double album and exceeds 100 minutes in length, the RIAA counts each unit sale twice).
The soundtrack was released in two different versions: a two-disc edition entitled Evita: The Motion Picture Music Soundtrack featured all the tracks from the film, and Evita: Music from the Motion Picture, a single-disc edition contained a selection of highlights from the soundtrack. The soundtrack includes three singles by Madonna; "You Must Love Me" (#18 in the US and #10 in the UK), "Don't Cry for Me Argentina" (#8 in the US, #3 in the UK, and #1 in France) and "Another Suitcase in Another Hall" (#7 in the UK).
