    The two men played the song to Michael Ostin of Warner Bros Records. The next day, Ostin has a meeting with Madonna and offers her a trial run on the track. The recording took place at Power Station Studios in New York. During the 1984 MTV Music Awards, Madonna devoted herself body and soul to her song. A star is born. Number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, in the top 10 of international sales, the song is considered the most memorable of Madonna, but also the one that allowed young women to assert themselves, especially sexually.
