Los Angeles-born musician Louis Cordero may be best known for playing the role of Madonna’s boyfriend in her “Borderline” video. However, Cordero also charted twice himself on Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart. Using the name Louie Louie, Cordero hit number 19 with “Sittin’ In The Lap Of Luxury” and then number 69 with “I Wanna Get Back With You” — two consecutive singles from his 1990 album The State I’m In.
