Erotica received generally favorable reviews from critics, who regarded it as one of Madonna’s most adventurous albums and praised her comments on taboos and AIDS. Commercially, the album was less successful than Madonna’s previous albums, peaking at number 2 on the US Billboard 200, becoming her first studio album not to top the chart since her debut.
Internationally, it topped the charts in Australia, Finland, and France, and peaked within the top five of several other countries such as Canada, Germany, Japan, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. Erotica was later certified double-platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America and has sold more than six million copies worldwide.
Six singles were released from the album, including the title track and “Deeper and Deeper”, both of which reached the top ten of the US Billboard Hot 100. The album was supported by The Girlie Show World Tour, which visited cities in Europe, North America, Latin America, Asia, and Australia in 1993.
Overlooked at the time of its release in part due to the backlash surrounding the Sex book, Erotica has been retrospectively considered as one of “The 100 Best Albums of the 1990s” by Slant Magazine and one of the most revolutionary albums of all time by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Many critics noted the influence of the album on the works of other female artists from Janet Jackson to Beyoncé.
Madonna as a businesswoman
Madonna’s popularity was further enhanced by her roles in films such as Desperately Seeking Susan, Dick Tracy, A League of Their Own, and Evita. While Evita earned her a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress, many of her other films received poor reviews.
As a businesswoman, Madonna founded an entertainment company called Maverick (including the label Maverick Records) in 1992. Her other ventures include fashion design, children’s books, health clubs, and filmmaking. She contributes to various charities, having founded Ray of Light Foundation in 1998 and Raising Malawi in 2006.
