“Burning Up” is a song by American singer-songwriter Madonna from her self-titled debut album. It was released as the album’s second single on March 9, 1983, in some countries as a AA side single with “Physical Attraction”. The song was presented as an early recorded demo by Madonna to Sire Records who greenlighted the recording of the single after the first single “Everybody” became a dance hit. Madonna collaborated with Reggie Lucas, who produced the single while John Benitez provided the guitar riffs and backing vocals.
The single failed to do well commercially anywhere, except the dance chart in the United States, where it peaked at three, and the Australian Charts, where it was a top twenty hit. After a number of live appearances in clubs to promote the single, it was added to the setlist of 1985’s The Virgin Tour. An electric guitar version was performed on 2004 Re-Invention Tour. The song was included on Madonna’s 2009 compilation, Celebration.
