Cover of True Blue

From True Blue and 25 other releases

“La Isla Bonita” (English: The Beautiful Island) is a song by American singer-songwriter Madonna. It was released as the fifth and final single from her third studio album, True Blue, on February 25, 1987 by Sire Records. “La Isla Bonita” is noted for being the first Madonna song to have a Spanish influence in it with arrangements of Cuban drums and Spanish guitar, maracas, harmonicas and a mix of synthesized and real drumming. The lyrics of the song tell about a beautiful island and was a tribute to the beauty of the Latin people, according to Madonna.

The song is among one of the most performed live songs by Madonna, appearing in five of her world tours including 2008’s Sticky & Sweet Tour.
