On June 23, 1990, Madonna’s “I’m Breathless: Music from and Inspired by the Film Dick Tracy” hit #2 in the USA.

After the filming of “Dick Tracy” was complete, Madonna began work on the film’s soundrack, with songwriter Stephen Sondheim, producer Patrick Leonard and engineer Bill Bottrell. She also worked with producer Shep Pettibone on the album’s first single, “Vogue“. The album was recorded in three weeks in California.
