On December 6 1994, Madonna’s Take a Bow was released (as a physical single).  Take A Bow was selected to be the second single from Madonna’s sixth studio album Bedtime Stories.

The ballad was written and produced by Madonna and Babyface.

Billboard Single Reviews gave the song a very positive review:

The follow-up to the top five smash Secret is a plush pop ballad that pairs La M with the red-hot Babyface, who has become best friend to many a diva in recent times. As close to perfect as top 40 fare gets, this single has a delightful, immediately memorable melody and chorus, engaging romance-novel lyrics, caressing live strings, and a lead vocal that is both sweet and quietly soulful. A lovely way for the singer to close ’95 — and one more good reason to investigate her essential Bedtime Stories collection.

  1. Take a Bow-One of many Madonna tunes that saved and rescued Madonna’s life from media death and controversy. This time, Madge took a quote from Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler and turned it into a beautiful and gorgeous Pop/Rock ballad-Take a Bow cried Let the Music Do the Talking and so Take a Bow did and came to be Madonna’s best song ever! Seven weeks on top at #1. I can only hope that next single Living for Love does the same for Maddy. For now, though Take a Bow is a brilliant Ciccone Detroit artwork!!! Brilliant, Madonna! You’re the best!
