Originally released in 2000, Music is the eighth studio album by American singer and songwriter Madonna.
What’s the hook?
As ever at the forefront of popular music trends, Madonna took the earth mother vibes of her previous album, Ray Of Light, and transposed them to the heart of the dancefloor. The end product, Music, released on September 18th 2000, is a wondrous mixture of the familiar and the audacious. Tracks like "Impressive Instant" and the title track "Music" take Madonna closer to the sound of the dancefloor underground.
William Orbit, the man responsible for producing the Ray Of Light album, has a hand in proceedings again, but the majority of tracks are produced by French whizzkid Mirwais, who brings a distinctive Gallic House feel to the proceedings. With a well-balanced mix of downtempo and up tempo numbers, all stamped with her innovative style, Music is further proof that Madonna was still way ahead of the pack.
The record was a commercial success, debuting at number one in over 23 countries across the world and selling four million copies in its first ten days of release. In the United States, Music debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 making it her first album to top the chart in more than a decade since Like a Prayer in 1989. It was certified triple platinum in the US and has sold over 11 million copies worldwide.
