But Madonna thought it would suit her new movie well, much to the chagrin of Kamins. The fact that Madonna would give the song such an unconventional debut shows how strong her popularity was at the time and how big of a hit the song really is.

Mark Kamins, Madonna's Producer Who Helped Launch Her Career, Dies February 16th 2013
Pioneering DJ and producer Mark Kamins, who was instrumental in facilitating the signing of Madonna to Sire Records in 1982, has died.
...
Kamins, noted for always living his life in the grandest of fashions, had apparently been struggling with heart problems for some months. Legend has it that he took the budding superstar and clubland habitue Madonna Ciccone under his wing, passing her demo on to Sire Records honcho Seymour Stein, who quickly signed her - the rest, of course, is pop history. Kamins, who also produced her nascent single "Everybody," would be the first in a line of high-profile Madonna beaus, eventually to be usurped by the likes of Jellybean Benitez and, of course, many others. A significant talent in his own right, he went on to work with radical performance artist Karen Finley, as well as 80's musical giants such as David Byrne, the Beastie Boys and Sinead O'Connor.
Benitez wrote on Facebook: "So sad to learn of the passing of Mark Kamins ... I will never forget the first time we met and how much we laughed ... I also loved watching and listening to you DJ at Danceteria ... I never knew what you would play next ... U are and will always be an inspiration to many ... I will miss u ... Rest in Peace my friend." Downtown documentarian Steve Lewis writes on BlackBookMag.com that Kamins "was brilliant yet lost, a good friend but often very much a loner.

Nel 1982 Madonna conosce il dj Mark Kamins, e firma il suo primo contratto discografico con la Sire Records che, nell'ottobre dello stesso anno, pubblica il suo primo singolo, Everybody, che raggiunse la posizione numero 3 della Billboard Dance Chart.Il singolo ottenne anche una buona programmazione sulle radio R&B, facendo pensare che Madonna fosse un'artista di colore.Quando Everybody venne ufficialmente pubblicato come singolo, la casa discografica decise di non fare apparire l'immagine di Madonna sulla copertina per non rischiare di perdere l'audience nera, svelando che Madonna era in realtà una cantante bianca.[citazione necessaria]
Il secondo singolo nel 1983 fu Burning Up, che raggiunse la numero 3 della Billboard Hot Dance/Club Play Chart.
