EDITORS’ NOTES

In the lead-up to Like a Prayer, Madonna became a movie star, got divorced, and turned 30—her mother’s age when she died. Themes of family, faith, and personal growth weighed heavily and set the stage for this album’s creative breakthroughs: “Express Yourself,” “Oh Father,” and the unforgettable title track. “Till Death Do Us Part” and “Keep It Together” prove that dance-pop can be intimate and confessional, while “Promise to Try” is a soul-bearing vocal performance that makes every Madonna fan feel like her personal confidante.
