Limited edition re-release of the debut full-length studio album by legendary American Pop singer.
After having established herself as a singer in downtown New York City, Madonna was signed by Sire Records' president Seymour Stein, due to the club success of her debut Single, "Everybody" (1982). She became the sole writer for most of the album's tracks, and chose Reggie Lucas as its primary producer. Unhappy with Lucas's production outputs, Madonna invited John "Jellybean" Benitez to complete the album, who remixed three tracks and produced "Holiday".
To promote the album, Madonna performed one-off gigs in clubs and on television in the United States and United Kingdom throughout 1983 and 1984, followed by The Virgin Tour in 1985. Five singles were released, including the international top-ten hits "Holiday", "Lucky Star", and "Borderline".
"Madonna" peaked at number eight on the Billboard 200, and was certified five-times Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for shipment of five million copies across the United States. It reached the top 10 of the charts in Australia, France, Netherlands, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom, and sold more than 10 million copies worldwide. The album was ranked 5 on Entertainment Weekly's list of the "Top 100 Best Albums of Past 25 Years" in 2008. The album has been credited for setting the standard of Dance-Pop for decades afterward, and for pointing the direction for numerous female artists of the 1980s.
