Madonna has sold more than 300 million records worldwide and is recognized as
the best-selling female recording artist of all time by Guinness World Records.
Time considered her to be one of the "25 Most Powerful Women of the Past
Century" for being an influential figure in contemporary music. Madonna is the
best-selling female rock artist of the 20th century and the second best selling
female artist in the United States. Considered by Forbes and other publications
as a cultural icon, she is often referred by the international press as the
"Queen of Pop".
In 2008, Billboard ranked Madonna at number two, behind only The Beatles, on the
Billboard Hot 100 All-Time Top Artists, making her the most successful solo
artist in the history of the chart. She was also inducted into the Rock and Roll
Hall of Fame in the same year. In 2012, she was crowned the "Greatest Woman In
Music" by VH1.
Something to Remember is a compilation album by American singer-songwriter
Madonna, released on November 7, 1995 by Maverick Records. It was released after
a controversial period in Madonna's career and many critics at this time had
specualted that Madonna's career was declining. In response to this Madonna
announced this compilation album, which was composed mostly of ballads spanning
Madonna's career with a revised version of "Love Don't Live Here Anymore" and
three new songs: "You'll See", "One More Chance" and a cover of Marvin Gaye's "I
Want You". The record also featured previously released Madonna singles that had
never been featured on her own album, including "I'll Remember" and "This Used
to Be My Playground" and altogether provided a softer image for Madonna at a
critical period in her career.
In producing the new songs for the album, Madonna worked with Massive Attack,
Richard Page, and David Foster, the latter known for his work with such artists
as Barbra Streisand. Madonna stated the concept for the album was to make fans
and critics alike remember her for her music rather than for her controversial
lifestyle. The album was generally well received by critics many of whom noted
Madonna's purposefully softer image and music. Commercially the album performed
well also, topping charts in Australia, Austria, Finland, and Italy, and peaking
within top ten elsewhere. In the United States, it reached number six on the
Billboard 200 and was certified three times platinum by the Recording Industry
Association of America (RIAA) for shipment of three million units. Worldwide,
Something to Remember has sold about ten million copies.
"Throughout the album, Madonna proves that she's a terrific singer whose
voice has improved over the years. Not one of the tracks is second-rate, and the
best songs on Something to Remember rank among the best pop music of the '80s
and '90s." - Stephen Thomas Erlewine, allmusic.com, Rated 4.5/5 Stars
