About "Everybody"

"Everybody" is the debut single by American singer Madonna, released on October 6, 1982, under the label Sire Records. The single was featured on her debut studio album Madonna (1983). Madonna had recorded a demo of the song with Steve Bray. She urged DJ Mark Kamins, who DJed at Danceteria, to play it. He was impressed by the song and took her to Sire Records, who signed her for a two-song deal. However, after the recording of the two singles was over, Sire executive Michael Rosenblatt was not interested in the other song produced and decided to release only "Everybody".

By incorporating R&B-infused beats in the music and not including her image on the cover artwork, marketing for the song gave the impression that Madonna was a black artist. That impression did not last long as Madonna would later convince Sire executives to shoot a music video for the song. The low-budget video directed by Ed Steinberg showed Madonna and her friends in a club singing and dancing to the song. The video helped to further promote the song and Madonna as an artist.

The song charted on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs, and helped Madonna achieve her first appearance on a chart. She has performed "Everybody" live a number of times. It was first performed during the Virgin Tour, it was part of the intro music for the dancers in the Blond Ambition Tour then as the final song of the Girlie Show World Tour, later on the MDNA Tour and most recently on the Rebel Heart Tour. She also performed it in her Coachella appearance in 2006. The song was included in a remixed form on Madonna's albums You Can Dance (1987) and Finally Enough Love: 50 Number Ones (2022), as well as on the deluxe edition of her 2009 compilation album, Celebration.
