Madonna Chords


Who doesn’t know the lyrics of Madonna’s “Like A Virgin”?. Interested to learn which chords Madonna used on this famous track? You will find them below! The American singer, songwriter, and actress Madonna Louise Ciccone, who is also known as the Queen of Pop, was born on August 16 1958 in Rochester Hills, Michigan and rose to fame during the 80s. She coined the scene with her pop anthems and series of sexy music clips. However, she is also known to have incorporated social, political and religious issues in her music, which has made her become recognized as an icon, having influenced the work of numerous other artists.

A woman of many talents

With the dream to become a professional dancer, Madonna moved to New York City where she first worked at Dunkin’ Donuts and reportedly got fired after squirting jam in a customer’s face. Today the artist is known for many accomplishments. Next to her musical career, she played roles in movies, including “Desperately Seeking Susan” (1985), “Dick Tracy” (1990) and “Evita” (1996). The latter eventually earned her Golden Globe Award in the category “Best Actress”, however many of the remaining movies she played in received poor reviews. Creating chords and crafting song texts for catchy pop songs is what made Madonna become a true legend. She has won five Grammy Awards and on top of that holds the record for the most number one singles by a female artist in Australia, Canada, Italy, Spain and the UK. In 2008, the artist was inaugurated in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and listed as one of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time by the American magazine Rolling Stone. In fact, the Guiness Book of World Records has listed her as the most successful recording female artist of all time, with over 200 million records sold worldwide.

**The Madonna empire **

Madonna’s chords of her debut single “Everybody” (1982) made her rise to fame in the first place. Her breakthrough single and her track “Burning Up” that followed a year later in March 1983 both became major club hits in the US and made her become well-known. However, this was only the beginning of the empire that she would build later-on. She is also a businesswoman, having founded the entertainment company Maverick, owns fashion and health brands, is the founder of the Ray of Light Foundation, and is a contributor to many charitable organizations. The queen of pop has an estimated net worth of 570-800 million US dollars.

Pushing boundaries

Robert M. Grant, the author of “Contemporary Strategy Analysis” has claimed that the reason for Madonna’s huge success is a constant reinvention of her chords, infusing them with new musical ideas. More so, in the book “Pop goes the Decade” Thomas Harrison adds that Madonna is “an artist who pushed the boundaries of what a female singer could do, both visually and lyrically.” Madonna’s achievements truly reflect this statement: She has registered a total of 287 to ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers), 18 of which she has written all by herself.
