About "Lucky Star"

"Lucky Star" is a song by American singer Madonna from her 1983 self-titled debut studio album. Written by her, the song was first released in the United Kingdom as a single on September 9, 1983, making it overall the fourth song released commercially off the album. In the United States, "Lucky Star" served as the album's fifth and final single after the release of "Borderline". It was then included on Madonna's greatest hits albums The Immaculate Collection (1990) and Celebration (2009). Originally, the song was produced by Reggie Lucas, but Madonna was not impressed by his final version, so she called her then-boyfriend John "Jellybean" Benitez to remix it according to her ideas.

"Lucky Star" is a medium-paced dance song and combines the heavy beats of a drum with the sounds of a guitar played in a high riff. The lyrics juxtapose the male body with the heavenly stars in the sky. Music critics praised the song, heralding it as the introduction to upbeat dance music. The song was a commercial success; in the United States, it peaked at number four on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Madonna's first top-five and second top-ten single after "Borderline". It also topped the Dance Club Songs chart along with "Holiday". Internationally, "Lucky Star" reached the top ten in Canada, and the top 20 in Ireland and the United Kingdom.

The music video portrayed Madonna dancing in front of a white background, accompanied by two dancers. After the video was released, Madonna's style and mannerisms became a fashion trend among the younger generation. Scholars noted that in the video, Madonna portrayed herself as narcissistic and an ambiguous character; they felt she referred to herself as the lucky star, unlike the lyrical meaning of the song. The artist has performed the song in four of her concert tours, the last being the Rebel Heart Tour (2015–2016). It has also been covered by a number of artists around the world.
