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

I'm talking, I'm talking, I believe in the power of love
I'm singing, I'm singing, I believe that you can rescue me

With you I'm not a little girl, with you I'm not a man
When all the hurt inside of me comes out, you understand
You see that I'm ferocious, you see that I am weak
You see that I am silly and pretentious and a freak

But I don't feel too strange for you
Don't know exactly what you do
I think when love is pure you try
To understand the reasons why
And I prefer this mystery, it cancels out my misery
And gives me hope that there could be
A person that loves me

Rescue me (rescue me, it's hard to believe)
Your love has given me hope
Rescue me (rescue me, it's hard to believe)
I'm drowning, baby throw out your rope

With you I'm not a fascist, can't play you like a toy
And when I need to dominate, you're not my little boy
You see that I am hungry for a life of understanding
And you forgive my angry little heart when she's demanding

You bring me to my knees while I'm scratching out the eyes
Of a world I want to conquer and deliver and despise
And right while I am kneeling there, I suddenly begin to care
And understand that there could be
A person that loves me

Rescue me (rescue me, it's hard to believe)
Your love has given me hope
Rescue me (rescue me, it's hard to believe)
I'm drowning, baby throw out your rope
(Baby throw out your rope)

Love is understanding
It's hard to believe life can be so demanding
I'm sending out an S.O.S.
Stop me from drowning, baby I'll do the rest

Rescue me, rescue me
Your love has given me hope (your love has given me hope)
Rescue me, rescue me
I'm drowning, baby throw out your rope
(Baby throw out your rope)

Rescue me, rescue me
Your love has given me hope (your love has given me hope)
Rescue me, rescue me
I'm drowning, baby throw out your rope
(Baby throw out your rope)

Ooh ahh, ooh ahh, love is understanding
Ooh ahh, ooh ahh, love is understanding

Love is understanding
It's hard to believe life can be so demanding
I'm sending out an S.O.S., rescue me, rescue me

It's not my business to decide
How good you are for me, how valuable you are
And what the world can see
Only that you try to understand me
And have the courage to love me for me

I believe (I believe in the power)
I believe that you can rescue me
(I believe you can rescue me)
I believe (I believe in the power)
I believe that you can rescue me
(I believe you can rescue me)

I'm singing, I believe (I believe in the power)
I believe that you can rescue me
(I believe you can rescue me)
I'm singing, I'm singing, I'm singing (I believe in the power)
I believe that you can rescue me
(I believe you can rescue me)

I'm talking, I'm talking (I believe in the power)
I believe in the power of love
(I believe you can rescue me)
I'm talking, I'm talking (I believe in the power)
I believe in the power of love
(I believe you can rescue me)

I'm singing, I'm singing, I believe (I believe in the power)
I believe that you can rescue me
(I believe you can rescue me)

Hey hey, hey hey (I believe in the power)
R.E.S.C.U.E. me, only you can rescue me
(I believe you can rescue me)
Hey hey, hey
(I believe in the power, I believe you can rescue me)
(I believe in the power, I believe you can rescue me)
