On September 8 1986, Madonna’s third album, True Blue, was certified double platinum (for shipment of 2 million units) in the USA.

Here’s a snippet of Davitt Sigerson’s review of True Blue from Rolling Stone (July 17, 1986):

Madonna’s sturdy, dependable, lovable new album remains faithful to her past while shamelessly rising above it. True Blue may generate fewer sales and less attention than Like a Virgin, but it sets her up as an artist for the long run. And like every other brainy move from this best of all possible pop madonnas, it sounds as if it comes from the heart.

  1. And so it was, is and will always be! True Blue will always come from Madonna’s Rebel Heart! Artwork number three has the outstanding ballad of sadness Live to Tell. Soon after, Madonna was the darling of Rock Critics who cried and proclaimed Best Artist Ever! More than this, True Blue was the Heartland Rock record that changed and altered my life! I love Madonna because of True Blue. Madonna Forever because of her Detroit brilliance!
