Greatest Hit: "Like a Prayer" (1989)

Madonna is the best-selling female recording artist of all time—really, she's actually ranked that by the Guinness World Records as having sold more than 300 million records worldwide. That's not a surprise considering the "Like a Virgin" singer is notorious for reinventing herself, and maintaining her sex appeal while doing so. Remember her super spiritual "YogaDonna" phase?

It's not difficult to spot her influence to this day. From Lady Gaga copping her style to the cone bra becoming a Halloween costume go-to, Madonna is an indelible figure in pop culture.
