MADONNA

The eighth full-length studio album by legendary American Pop singer.
Following the success of her previous album "Ray Of Light" (1998), Madonna intended to embark on a tour. However, her record company encouraged her to return to the studio and record new music before going on the road. Her collaboration with producers Mirwais Ahmadzaï and William Orbit resulted a more experimental direction for the album. "Music" has an overall Dance-Pop and Electronica vibe, with influences from Rock, Country and Folk. Elaborating a Country theme for the album, Madonna reinvented her image as a cowgirl.
Filled with vocoders, stylish Neo-Electro beats, dalliances with Trip-Hop, and, occasionally, eerie synthesized atmospherics, "Music" blows by in a kaleidoscopic rush of color, technique, style, and substance. It has so many layers that it's easily as self-aware and earnest as "Ray Of Light", where Madonna's studiousness complemented a record heavy on spirituality and reflection. Here, she mines that territory occasionally, especially as the record winds toward its conclusion, but she applies her new tricks toward celebrations of music itself. That's not only true of the full-throttle dance numbers but also for ballads like "I Deserve It" and "Nobody's Perfect", where the sentiments are couched in Electronic effects and lolling, rolling beats. Ultimately, that results in the least introspective or revealing record Madonna has made since "Like A Prayer", yet that doesn't mean she doesn't invest herself in the record. Working with a stable of producers, she has created an album that is her most explicitly musical and restlessly creative since, "Like A Prayer". Whenever she works with Mirwais, Music truly comes alive with the spark and style.
The album was supported by the Drowned World Tour, which grossed over $75.000.000, making it the highest-grossing tour by a solo act of 2001 (the fourth overall).
Three singles were released from the album. Its lead single, "Music", topped the record charts in 25 countries worldwide and became Madonna's 12th number-one hit on the Billboard Hot 100. It was followed with another Hot 100 top-five hit "Don't Tell Me" and "What It Feels Like for a Girl" which attained the top-ten position in several countries worldwide. "Impressive Instant" was released as promotional single, peaking at number one on the Hot Dance Club Play chart.
"Music" was generally acclaimed by most critics and earned Madonna five Grammy Award nominations, ultimately winning one for Best Recording Package. "Music" debuted at number-one in 23 countries. It was also a commercial success. The album set a record in Warner Music Group as the biggest album shipment in the company, with three million copies worldwide in the first week. 
In the United States, "Music" debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 with first week sales of 420.000 units, making it Madonna's first album to top the chart in more than a decade since "Like A Prayer" (1989). In Canada, the album debuted at the top of the Canadian RPM Albums Chart and was certified Platinum by the Canadian Recording Industry Association (CRIA) for shipments of 300.000 copies. In 2003, Rolling Stone ranked it number 452 on the magazine's list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. On November 21, 2005, the album was certified three times Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for 3.000.000 units shipped in the United States. As of August 2010, "Music" has sold 2.925.000 copies there according to Nielsen SoundScan and has sold over 11.000.000 copies worldwide, becoming one of the best-selling albums during the 2000s century.
