Her Madgesty is celebrating her 60th birthday this month so we’re dedicating August to the Queen of Pop.  We will be picking our A to Z of Madonna singles each day this month as well as asking you to vote for your favourite Madonna album.

Today is brought to you by the letter J.

J is for Justify My Love. This track caused a stir because of it’s overtly sexual video and set the scene for the Erotica album which would follow a few years later.  Madonna speaks most of the lyrics and of course, it’s all to do with being satisfied by your lover…or lovers!

Single facts

  • Justify My Love was written by Lenny Kravitz and Ingrid Chavez (with Madonna writing some additional lines) although the latter wasn’t originally credited and sued Kravitz
  • The track was the lead single from her first greatest hits,  The Immaculate Collection, which is one of the top 15 biggest selling albums of all time in the UK
  • The video features Madonna’s then boyfriend, actor and model Tony Ward who went on to appear in Spice Girls Say You’ll Be There video amongst others
  • MTV banned the video for being to risque

There is only one other single starting with the letter J and that’s 2006’s Jump from Confessions on a Dancefloor, the fourth and final single from that album. Tell us @entfocusmusic and what you’d pick for the letter K.
