From Erotica and 18 other releases

“Erotica” is the lead single from American singer-songwriter Madonna’s fifth studio album, Erotica (1992). The single was released in October 1992 by Maverick Records. Released amidst a blaze of publicity and hype for the single and other projects at the time, “Erotica” became her first lead single from an album not to hit number one in the U.S. since her debut album in 1983. Fourteen years after its original release, the song received renewed attention with its inclusion in the set list for the Confessions Tour. The song, along with “Secret Garden”, were the only Madonna songs used in her feature film debut as a director, Filth and Wisdom (2007).

“Erotica” was highly controversial when it was released due to its sexual theme and suggestive lyrics. Upon the song’s release, the Vatican banned Madonna from entering the state and her music was banned on its radio stations. The song and its accompanying album are also banned in Lebanon.
