ABOUT THE ALBUM

1986's "True Blue" was a mammoth worldwide success. The set reached No. 1 in the U.S. and 27 other countries (at the time unprecedented for a female artist) and spawned five smash singles. The lead-off track, "Live To Tell," hit No. 1 in the U.S. and was followed by four more top five tracks: "Papa Don't Preach" (No. 1), "True Blue" (No. 3), "Open Your Heart" (No. 1) and "La Isla Bonita" (No. 4). The album cemented her chart domination in the U.K., where "Papa Don't Preach," "True Blue" and "La Isla Bonita" all hit No. 1. Produced by Madonna, Stephen Bray and Patrick Leonard, the album garnered her second Grammy award nomination. "Papa Don't Preach" scored a nod for Female Pop Vocal Performance. "True Blue" is Madonna's biggest selling studio album worldwide, with estimated sales at over 20 million.
