On July 7 1984, Warner Bros. Records took out a full-page ad in Billboard magazine to congratulate Madonna on the Gold certification of her self-titled debut album.
The ad featured the first look at a new photo shoot Madonna had recently completed with Steven Meisel. This image would later appear on the back cover of her next album, Like A Virgin.
On June 2 1984, Madonna’s Borderline was released as a single in the UK. The single only reached a peak of #56, but upon re-releasing the song on January 1 1986, it reached a new peak of #2.
Borderline was certified gold by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) in February 1986, for shipment of 500,000 copies.
On June 14 1994, Madonna’s I’ll Remember (Theme From With Honors) single was certified gold for shipment of 500,000 units in the USA.
Why do you think Madonna has never performed this song live?
Why has it never appeared on a proper greatest hits album?
On April 11 1990, Madonna’s Keep It Together single was certified Gold by the RIAA for shipment of over 500,000 units in the U.S.
Keep It Together was Madonna’s last 7-inch single to be issued with a picture sleeve by Warner Bros. Records in the U.S. until the release of a 4 Minutes/Give It 2 Me double 7-inch set eighteen years later.
