I don’t know what’s come over me these last few months, but I am becoming increasingly obsessed with the sounds and style of Madonna. Her swagger in the late eighties and early nineties is unparalleled by any other artist during that time. She reeked of risque, sexual innuendos and images of female power that only Madonna could pull off.
This song and video is one of my favorites. Produced by Lenny Kravitz and Andre Betts, “Justify My Love” is a standout track that defined Madonna to the fullest and where her musical talent took on it’s purest form. This track was written by Lenny Kravitz and Co-Written by Mexican-American Poet Ingrid Chavez, which explains the spoken word feel of this song, with additional lyrics added by Madonna to round out the track. Ingrid Chavez’s name never appeared in the credits for this song, but she sure got a large settlement for it.
I look forward to using this song for a fashion show one day. Enjoy!
