Jeff Ayeroff Madonna

Lucky Star

8 Sep, 1983

The artist releases Lucky Star. The song is featured on her self-titled album. MTV’s Ayeroff commissions the video for the single.

I made Lucky Star for $14,000 with a friend who was a pot grower from Bolinas, California (Arthur Pierson). We’d released ; Everybody, Burning Up, Holiday and Borderline as singles. And Madonna didn’t want to release Lucky Star. Around the same time, she was getting sued and needed money. I said, ‘Let me release Lucky Star, and I guarantee you’ll sell enough records to pay that off.’ Lucky Star broke the first album wide open.
