Nadat Madonna het nummer Ain’t No Big Deal laat horen bij platenmaatschappij Sire krijgt de zangeres haar eerste platencontract. Everybody is daarna de eerste single en binnen een jaar is ook haar titelloze debuutalbum een feit.

In 1984 staat Madonna voor het eerst in de Top 40 met Holiday, een single die later nog twee keer in de Top 40 zou komen. In 1985 scoort Madonna haar eerste nummer 1-hit met Into The Groove, waarna ook Who’s That Girl (1987), Hung Up (2005), 4 Minutes (met Justin Timberlake, 2008) en Give It 2 Me (2008) op nummer 1 komen.

Madonna wordt ook wel de almaar transformerende Queen of Pop genoemd en is de best verkopende vrouwelijke artiest aller tijden.Volgens Warner Bros Records heeft Madonna meer dan 250 miljoen albums verkocht.

Met een totaal van 55 singles staat de zangeres in de Top 40 genoteerd, een record. Ook weet ze daarmee de meest succesvolle Top 40-act ooit te zijn. Madonna schrijft 25 keer een Alarmschijf op haar naam. Later evenaart Rihanna dat aantal.

In 2015 verschijnt haar dertiende studioalbum, Rebel Heart, waarvan Living For Love en Ghosttown de eerste singles zijn.


Songtekst



Come on, girls
Do you believe in love?
'Cause I got something to say about it
And it goes something like this

Don't go for second best, baby
Put your love to the test, you know, you know you've got to
Make him express how he feels
And maybe then you'll know your love is real

You don't need diamond rings or eighteen karat gold
Fancy cars that go very fast you know they never last, no, no

What you need is a big strong hand
To lift you to your higher ground
Make you feel like a queen on a throne
Make him love you 'till you can't come down

Don't go for second best, baby
Put your love to the test, you know, you know you've got to
Make him express how he feels

And maybe then you'll know your love is real

Long stem roses are the way to your heart
But he needs to start with your head
Satin sheets are very romantic
What happens when you're not in bed?

You deserve the best in life
So if the time isn't right then move on
Second best is never enough
You'll do much better baby on your own

Don't go for second best, baby
Put your love to the test, you know, you know you've got to
Make him express how he feels
And maybe then you'll know your love is real

Express yourself
You've got to make him express himself
Hey, hey, hey, hey!

So if you want it right now
Make him show you how
Express what he's got
Oh, baby, ready or not

And when you're gone he might regret it
Think about the love he once had
Try to carry on, but he just won't get it

He'll be back on his knees to express himself
You've got to make him express himself, hey, hey

Don't go for second best, baby
Put your love to the test, you know, you know you've got to
Make him express how he feels
And maybe then you'll know your love is real

Express yourself
You've got to make him express himself
Hey, hey, hey, hey!

So if you want it right now
Make him show you how
Express what he's got
Oh, baby, ready or not

Express yourself
Respect yourself, hey, hey!

So if you want it right now
Make him show you how
Express what he's got
Oh, baby, ready or not

Express yourself
