On November 18 1986, Madonna’s True Blue album was certified 3x platinum, for sales of 3 million units in the United States. The album was released on June 30 1986.
Here’s what Madonna had to say about the album track, Where’s The Party?
“It’s my ultimate statement about what it’s like to be in the middle of this Press stuff with everybody on my back, my world about to cave in. Whenever I feel like that – and it does get to me sometimes – I say ‘Wait a minute, I’m supposed to be having a good time here, so where’s the party?’ It doesn’t have to be this way. I can still enjoy life.”
Much more than just an escapist dancefloor anthem, Where’s the Party? is Madonna’s ultimate statement on media invasion-why Madonna can’t have any privacy anymore or have time alone for herself-how the press scrutinizes her every facet and move-and Madonna cries said song with an existential sadness! Exhibit M-Your move, Madonna!
