"Dear Jessie" was the fifth single by American singer-songwriter Madonna from her 4th studio album Like a Prayer and was released on December 10, 1989 by Sire Records. It was released only in the UK, some European countries and Australia.
The song was inspired by co-writer Patrick Leonard's daughter, Jessie.
The single sold strongly in the UK during the Christmas period peaking at #5 with sales of 250,769. The song did not receive a worldwide release. It was not released in France, North America, Latin America and Asia. For this reason, it was her poorest selling single since "Gambler" in 1985.
Dear Jessie was the last Madonna song released in the 1980s, the decade that gave her fame, fortune and a launching pad for a career which lasts to the present.
