Background: Released in November 1984, Like a Virgin was Madonna’s second album and the one that made her a superstar.

The album reached #1 in the U.S., the UK, Germany, France, and Spain and has sold more than twenty-one million copies. gave Like a Virgin a 4 1/2 star review:

Madonna had hits with her first album, even reaching the Top Ten twice with “Borderline” and “Lucky Star,” but she didn’t become a superstar, an icon, until her second album, Like a Virgin. She saw the opening for this kind of explosion and seized it, bringing in former Chic guitarist Nile Rodgers in as a producer, to help her expand her sound, and then carefully constructed her image as an ironic, ferociously sexy Boy Toy; the Steven Meisel-shot cover, capturing her as a buxom bride with a Boy Toy belt buckle on the front, and dressing after a night of passion, was as key to her reinvention as the music itself. Yet, there’s no discounting the best songs on the record, the moments when her grand concepts are married to music that transcends the mere classification of dance-pop.
