December 22 - Madonna hits the top of the US Charts for the first time

On this day 26 years ago, Madonna made her mark on the North American music scene with her 2nd album "Like a Virigin". This was Madonna's first album to reach the top of the US Billboard charts, and it remained there for six consecutive weeks. The album was a huge commercial success as it went multi-platinum in six different countries (10x platinum in the United States).

"Like a Virgin" produced 5 singles, 4 of which went #1. Singles such as "Like a Virgin", "Into the Groove", "Material Girl", and "Angel" all reached the top of the charts, with "Like a Virgin" hitting the peak position in both the United States and Canada.

This album was a follow up to Madonna's self titled debut album, which came out in 1983.
