Madonna's critically acclaimed fourth studio album, Like A Prayer, co-produced with Patrick Leonard, hit #1 around the world upon its release in March of 1989. One of the pop icon's most mature and introspective efforts, the album's title track reached the top of the singles chart in both the U.S. and U.K. and was followed by four more U.S. hits: "Express Yourself" (#2), "Cherish" (#2), "Oh Father" (#20) and "Keep It Together" (#8). "Dear Jessie" was also released as a single in the U.K. and hit #5. The album's videos earned seven MTV Video Music Award nominations, including best video of the year ("Like A Prayer") and best female video ("Express Yourself"). In 1990, the video for "Oh Father," directed by David Fincher, won the Grammy for best short form music video. Like A Prayer has sold in excess of fifteen million copies around the world to date.
