On September 19 2000, Madonna’s eighth studio album Music was released by Maverick Records. Music was released in some markets on September 18.
In anticipation of the release Madonna made this statement:
“Hey Mr. DJ, put a record on… Hi, it’s Madonna. You’ve probably been hearing about my new record, Music, for a while. Well, I just wanted to make sure you knew that the single is gonna drop very soon. I worked on it with a French guy named Mirwais, and he is the shit. The album will be released worldwide on September 19, and I hope you like my music.”
Music is a brilliant Heartland Rock album with Madonna driving a 1964 Ford Falcon she could only afford because a similar Mustang was not in her price range-Here goes-Music shrieks out of the starting gate with three of the hardest rockers she has ever recorded-the #1 hit title cut, manic rockers Impressive Instant and Runaway Lover, then cruises with paean to soulmate Guy Ritchie I Deserve It, then picks up with hard rocker Amazing, then sobs and cries sad ballad Nobody’s Perfect, is sure of herself on the two hits Don’t Tell Me and paean to Lola What It Feels Like for a Girl and finally sobs and cries once more in sad ballads Paradise and finale closer Gone. Music-another brilliant Detroit Madonna masterpiece!
