"Like a Prayer" är en låt framförd av den amerikanska popartisten Madonna, utgiven som den första singeln från hennes fjärde studioalbum med samma namn den 3 mars 1989. Låten skrevs och producerades av Madonna tillsammans med Patrick Leonard och markerade en förändring i hennes låtskrivande med fokus på en mer vuxen publik . And even today, Like A Prayer remains provocative and progressive: The racial tension alluded to in the “Like A Prayer” video is striking, while the album’s themes of religious and sexual oppression still feel all too relevant. Madonna dictated pop’s future direction while also being firmly in control of her own fortunes. Some Christian listeners felt Madonna was mocking their faith with this song. "Madonna" (Italian for "My Lady") is another name for the Virgin Mary, so when a singer calling herself Madonna recorded a song called "Like A Virgin," it raised some eyebrows. "Music" is a song recorded by American singer Madonna as the title track for her eighth studio album (2000). It was released as the lead single from the album on August 1, 2000 by Maverick and Warner Bros. Records.
