Madonna attends the 2016 Billboard Women in Music on Dec. 9, 2016 in New York City. 

Madonna took to Instagram on Thursday (Dec. 6) for a bit of nostalgia, posing a throwback photo with Jean-Michel Basquiat, whom she dated in the early 1980s.

The photo, complete with hearts trickling down the frame, is accompanied by a number of hashtags in the caption. "#tbt #art #magic #JMB #babies #dreaming," the icon wrote.

Basquiat died in 1988 at the age of 27 after a heroin overdose. His breakup with Madonna was not an easy one. “He wouldn’t stop doing heroin. He was an amazing man and deeply talented, I loved him,” said Madonna on a recent appearance on the Howard Stern Show (via Art Market Monitor). “When I broke up with him he made me give [the paintings he gave me] back to him. And then he painted over them black.”

See the throwback photo below.
