Madonna scores another No.1 in 1987 with “Who’s That Girl”

Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard, “Who’s That Girl” by Madonna was released on June 23, 1987 and musically continued Madonna’s fascination with Hispanic culture by incorporating Spanish lyrics and using the effect of double vocals. The song was featured in the soundtrack of the movie “Who’s That Girl”, starring the singer, and end up nominated for “Best Song From A Motion Picture” at the 1988 Grammy Awards and “Best Original Song” at the 1988 Golden Globe Awards. One of Madonna’s biggest hits, It debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 at number 43, reached the top of the chart in its seventh week on August 22, 1987 and maintained the top position for one week. “Who’s That Girl” became Madonna’s sixth number-one single in the United States, making her the first artist to accumulate six number-one singles in the 1980’s and it was also a huge success worldwide, remaining a 1980’s Pop music classic. The popular music video portrayed a different persona of Madonna, rather than her film character for which it was released, and, like the song, it incorporated Hispanic culture and portrayed her dressed in Spanish style as a young lady in search of a treasure followed by some children.
