'Music', the lead single from Madonna's eighth studio album, was released August 21st 2000. The song was composed with French producer Mirwais, whose eccentric twist on disco and electro-funk gave a modern update to the familiar message of music's ability to unite and equalize. Despite leaking on the internet many weeks ahead of release, 'Music' was still a huge hit, reaching the top spot in over 20 countries, including the US where it became her 12th and final #1. The music video, directed by Jonas Åkerlund and featuring Sacha Baron Cohen's character Ali G, saw Madonna star as a mack-daddy in attempt to flip the gender roles of stereotypical hip-hop videos.

The release marked a new era for Madonna, now embarking on her third decade in music and contending with a new generation of popstars, but proving herself to still be on top of her game. As hinted in the lyrics to 'Music', Madonna wasn't about to start looking back or thinking her time was up, she still had plenty more to give.

Not a favourite song from the Music album era, but definitely iconic and one of her most well-known and signature songs now. The era that was to follow has become one of her biggest, so this is a great start to the festivities.

Happy 20th birthday! cheer.gif

I remember at the time everyone at school kept obsessively singing "Hey Mr DJ put a record on..." for weeks, it was incredibly rare a song made that kind of impact. laugh.gif
