Madonna has ranked #1 on Billboard's "Greatest Music Video Artists of all time"!

QUOTE
1. MADONNA
Why She's a Video Icon: Ascending to era-defining supremacy shortly after MTV itself, Madonna's high-concept videos – which channeled old Hollywood while paving a provocative visual path into the future -- were an integral part of her ever-changing image and the meticulous control she exercised around it.

The MTV Classic: The satirical "Material Girl" and controversial "Like a Prayer" are equally impactful, but the David Fincher-directed "Vogue" – with its life-affirming alchemy of old-school glamour, ball culture choreography and sumptuous cinematography – stands as her finest visual moment.

Worth YouTubing: "Open Your Heart," with its playful subversion of the male gaze via an art deco peep show, is an early and effective distillation of her endlessly analyzed, celebrated, vilified and imitated take on sexuality and ownership. -- J. Lynch

This is a huge achievement and so well deserved given the amount of incredible masterpieces of music videos Madonna has given us over the past 4 or so decades.

What are your favourite Madonna music videos?

She has very few bad videos and an abundance of incredible videos so this was no real contest (except from MJ!). My favourites include the Like A Prayer, Ray of Light era videos and more recently, God Control!

What an achievement! It could only really be that top 2 but it's usually MJ that gets the most acclaim. Madonna had such a vision for how her videos could reinforce the messages of her music and each new video felt like an event. Her work with David Fincher and the Ray of Light era are major high moments.
