On June 30 1986, Madonna’s True Blue album was released by Sire Records. She worked with Stephen Bray and Patrick Leonard on the album while co-writing and co-producing all the songs.
True Blue was an immediate global success, reaching number one in then record-breaking 28 countries across the world, including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States. It spent 34 consecutive weeks at the top of the European Top 100 Albums chart, longer than any other album in history. It became the world’s top-selling album of 1986, as well the biggest selling album of the 1980s by a woman and remains one of the best-selling albums of all time with sales of more than 25 million copies worldwide. All five singles released from the album reached the top five on the Billboard Hot 100, with Live to Tell, Papa Don’t Preach, and Open Your Heart peaking at number one.
Mom took me to get this the day it came out. This album solidified Madonna as a legitimate global Icon. A TRUE Icon unlike what gets thrown around these days
I had a store at that time and true blue was our first blockbuster I remember telling people at Warner how huge the album was going to be and it was if like a virgin made Madonna a superstar true blue headed her into solidifying that she had become the biggest star ⭐️ in the world the 5 singles were fantastic and so is Madonna still to this day
True Blue-Madonna’s first Detroit masterpiece!
My favorite Madonna album and the one where I jumped on the fan bandwagon!
