The fourth compilation album by legendary American Pop singer.
It's the third "greatest hits" album by Madonna, and features 34 songs spanning she's career since signing up with the Warning Bros. Records in 1982. The album also includes three new songs: "Celebration" (included on all versions), "Revolver" (included on the two-disc version), and "It's So Cool" (included as a bonus track on some digital two-disc editions). A fourth song, "Broken", was recorded for the album but not used; eventually it was released in 2012 as a limited edition promotional vinyl Single for fan club members.
Celebration received universal acclaim by contemporary critics, who noted the vastness of Madonna's back-catalogue. The album debuted at the top of the charts in Belgium, Canada, Ireland, Italy, Mexico and the United Kingdom. Madonna became tied with Elvis Presley as the solo artist with the most number-one albums in the United Kingdom. In the United States, it debuted at number seven in the Billboard 200; in other nations, it also debuted within the top ten, peaking in the top three in most of them. The title track was released as the first Single of the album. It became Madonna's 40th number-one song on Billboard's Hot Dance Club Songs chart. "Revolver" was released as the second Single from the album in some territories, but did not achieve significant commercial success. Worldwide, "Celebration" has sold about four million copies.
