On August 19 2009, Madonna’s Celebration single was released as a digital remix EP on iTunes in North America.
The EP featured remixes by Benny Benassi, Paul Oakenfold and Johnny Vicious.
Although Madonna had produced the album version of Celebration with one of the world’s best known DJ’s, Paul Oakenfold, it was Benny Benassi’s remix that, deservedly, captured the most attention.
Madonna chose to feature Benassi’s remix in the music video for the single, and it was also used as the closing performance of her MDNA Tour. She would also collaborate on several songs with Benassi for her album, MDNA.
40 years later, the world is still partying with Madonna-she is brilliant!
