Description

This copy of the Erotica CD has been hand signed by Madonna in blue ink on the CD insert. Strong clear signature.  Erotica is the fifth studio album by American singer-songwriter Madonna, released on October 20, 1992 by Maverick Records. For the album, Madonna worked with Shep Pettibone and André Betts, and was released simultaneously with Madonna’s first book publication, Sex, which had explicit photographs featuring the singer. The album incorporates influences from house music, new jack swing, and lounge music. Madonna incorporated an alter-ego called Dita; she talks about sex and romance throughout the album. Other songs take on a more confessional tone, influenced by the loss of two of Madonna’s close friends to AIDS.  In the United States, Erotica debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 on November 11, 1992, with first week sales of 167,000 copies. It was held off from reaching the top spot by Garth Brooks’s fourth studio album, The Chase, which that same week sold 4,000 copies more than Erotica. The next week, the album dropped to the fourth position. It was eventually certified two times platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for shipments of two million units. In Canada, the album debuted at number seven on the RPM Albums Chart on November 7, 1992. It reached a peak of number four on November 21, 1992. The album was present for a total of 38 weeks on the chart, and was certified two times platinum by the Canadian Recording Industry Association (CRIA) for shipments of 200,000 copies. In the United Kingdom, Erotica debuted at number two on the UK Albums Chart, on October 24, 1992. It remained at its peak at number two for three weeks, and a total of 38 weeks on the chart. The album was certified two times platinum on June 1, 1993, by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) for shipments of 600,000 copies. In France, the album debuted at number one on the French Albums Chart on October 28, 1992, staying there for two weeks, then descending down the chart. Ironically, it did not receive any music certification from Syndicat National de l’Édition Phonographique (SNEP). In Australia, the album debuted at number one on the Kent Music Report albums chart, and was certified three times platinum by the Australian Recording Industry Association(ARIA) for shipments of 210,000 copies. It reached the top five of the New Zealand Albums Chart. In Germany, the album reached the top five on the Media Control Charts and was certified gold for shipments of 250,000 copies. In Sweden, the album debuted in its peak of number six and spent only seven weeks on the chart. Similarly in Switzerland, Erotica peaked number five on the week of October 25, 1992. To date, Erotica is one of Madonna’s least commercially successful album, selling more than five million copies globally.
