Madonna (born Madonna Louise Ciccone; August 16, 1958) is an American recording artist, actress and entrepreneur. Born in Bay City, Michigan and raised in Rochester Hills, Michigan, she moved to New York City in 1977, for a career in modern dance. After performing as a member of the pop musical groups Breakfast Club and Emmy, she released her self-titled debut album, Madonna in 1983 by Sire Records.
A series of hit singles from her studio albums Like a Virgin (1984) and True Blue (1986) gained her global recognition, establishing her as a pop icon for pushing the boundaries of lyrical content in mainstream popular music and imagery in her music videos, which became a fixture on MTV. Her recognition was augmented by the film Desperately Seeking Susan (1985) which widely became seen as a Madonna vehicle, despite her not playing the lead. Expanding on the use of religious imagery with Like a Prayer (1989), Madonna received positive critical reception for her diverse musical productions, while at the same time receiving criticism from religious conservatives and the Vatican. In 1992, Madonna founded the Maverick corporation, a joint venture between herself and Time Warner. The same year, she expanded the use of sexually explicit material in her work, beginning the release of the studio album Erotica, followed by the publishing of the coffee table book Sex, and starring in the erotic thriller Body of Evidence, all of which received negative responses from conservatives and liberals alike.
In 1996, Madonna played the starring role in the film Evita, for which she won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy. Madonna's seventh studio album Ray of Light (1998) became one of her most critically acclaimed, recognized for its lyrical depth. In 2005, Madonna released Confessions on a Dance Floor, which earned the Grammy Award for Best Electronic/Dance Album. Her eleventh studio album Hard Candy (2008), became her seventh to debut at number one on the Billboard 200 albums chart. Departing from Warner Bros. Records, Madonna signed an unprecedented $120 million dollar contract with Live Nation the same year.
Madonna is ranked by the Recording Industry Association of America as the best-selling female rock artist of the twentieth century and the second top-selling female artist in the United States with sixty-three million certified albums; she has sold over two-hundred million albums worldwide. In 2007, Guinness World Records listed her as the world's most successful female recording artist of all time and she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame the following year. Considered to be one of the most influential women in contemporary music, Madonna has been known for continually reinventing her music and image and for retaining a standard of anonymity within the recording industry; she is recognized as an influence among numerous music artists.
The Immaculate Collection is the first greatest hits album by American singer-songwriter Madonna, released on November 13, 1990 by Sire Records. It contains newly remixed versions of her greatest hits from 1982 to 1990, as well as two new tracks "Justify My Love" and "Rescue Me". The album includes eight of her twelve U.S. number one singles and five of thirteen U.K. number ones.
The RIAA certified it Diamond on October 11, 2001, recognizing ten million shipments throughout the United States, making it her best-selling album there, sold 5,777,000 according to Nielsen SoundScan (post march 1, 1991). In the UK, the BPI certified it 12x Platinum, for sales of 3.6 million copies, making it the tenth best-selling album of all-time in the UK, and making her the most successful female act in UK album chart history. The album is the best-selling compilation ever released by a female artist, with 22 million copies sold worldwide.
The title of the album is a loose pun of the Immaculate Conception, the conception of the Virgin Mary without any stain of the original sin. This name follows Madonna's religious-themed songs and videos, as well as the second section of her Blond Ambition Tour, ambiented in the same way. In 1991, The Holiday Collection EP was released in Europe to accompany the compilation and the re-release of the single "Holiday". It contained tracks omitted from this album: "True Blue", "Who's That Girl" and "Causing a Commotion".
Originally titled Ultra Madonna, the name was changed as Warner Bros. felt that it was too similar to the name of dance artist Ultra Naté. Madonna dedicated the album to "The Pope, my divine inspiration". This led to many believing it was dedicated to Pope John Paul II, but it was actually dedicated to her brother, Christopher Ciccone, who had spent the year on tour with Madonna ("The Pope" is one of his nicknames). The production of this album is notable for its use of QSound; all songs were mixed in using it, except "Justify My Love" and "Rescue Me". A QSound mix of "Justify My Love" was later released on the US maxi-single to the song.
All of the songs on The Immaculate Collection (with the obvious exception of the two new songs) were remixed by Shep Pettibone alongside either Goh Hotoda or Michael Hutchinson and some were also edited down from their original lengths in order to decrease the overall running time. Although Madonna re-recorded the vocals for the song "Lucky Star" for the compilation, all of the original vocals on the other tracks remained the same and ultimately the original vocals for "Lucky Star" were also used and the new version was scrapped (although it has appeared on bootlegs). Notably, "Like a Prayer" and "Express Yourself" feature completely different music backing Madonna's vocals from their original album release.
It was decided that a mixture of ballads and pop-dance hits would be included, although there wasn't space for every Madonna single released; the following notable hit singles are absent: "Everybody", "Burning Up", "Angel", "Dress You Up", "True Blue", "Who's That Girl", "Causing a Commotion", "Oh Father", "Dear Jessie", "Keep It Together", and "Hanky Panky".
"Justify My Love" became the first single to promote the album, and created a furor over the sexual video and the controversy in regards to who wrote it. (Poet Ingrid Chavez claimed she wrote part of the lyrics, alongside credited lyricist Lenny Kravitz.) The single shot to number one in the U.S. and number two in the UK. A second release, "Rescue Me", was released in early 1991, which also went top ten.
Many fans were quick to point out the shortcomings of the album. Every hit (except "Like a Prayer" and "Vogue") was heavily edited although the album was only 73 minutes long. Moreover, many fans and critics stressed that the presence of the Shep Pettibone's "Like a Prayer" dance remix, rather than the more familiar LP version, was not the best way to pay tribute to a track that is considered by many as one of her best. Fans also pointed out the numerous missing hits, so Warner Bros. released an EP in the UK and Europe titled The Holiday Collection which had the same design as The Immaculate Collection. The full-length version of "Holiday" was included alongside "True Blue", "Who's That Girl", and the Silver Screen Single mix of "Causing a Commotion". The re-released "Holiday" eventually went to number five in the UK charts, as did a re-release of the ballad "Crazy for You".
By the late 1990s, and after twenty million copies had been sold, the Guinness Book of World Records declared The Immaculate Collection to be the biggest selling 'hits' compilation album by a solo female artist and was placed in several "albums of the millennium" lists. In 2003, the album was ranked number 278 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. In November 2006, the album was confirmed by the British Phonographic Industry to be the biggest selling album by a solo female artist in British history, and the tenth biggest selling album of all time in the UK by any artist.
