"Music" is a song by American singer-songwriter Madonna, taken from her eighth studio album of the same name (2000). It was released as the lead single from the album on August 21, 2000, by Maverick Records. The song was also included on the compilation albums GHV2 (2001) and Celebration (2009). Written and produced by Madonna and Mirwais Ahmadzaï, the nexus of "Music" is about people having fun at a party, and Madonna claims that music makes the people come together. Musically, "Music" is a disco and electropop song. "Music" provides a cross-section of Madonna's artistic range, as she sings in several genres, some natural and some electronically manipulated that refuse confinement.
"Music" received positive reviews from international critics, who praised the production, catchiness and club-friendly nature of the song, also comparing it with other Madonna's older songs. "Music" peaked number one in 22 other countries, including Australia, Canada, Italy, New Zealand, Norway and the United Kingdom. The song reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100. "Music" also has the longest running number-one spot at Billboard Hot Dance Club Play of the decade, with spent a longevity five weeks at number one. The song was the second most successful dance single of the decade in the United States, behind Madonna's own "Hung Up" (2005). The song was also the last number one hit on the Canadian RPM singles chart.
The music video, directed by Jonas Åkerlund, portrays Madonna and her friends giving a party in her limousine, driven by comedian Ali G. Promoting "Music", Madonna performed the song during the Europe Music Awards in 2000, wearing a T-shirt with "Kylie Minogue" written on it, and at the Grammy Awards in the following year. The song was also performed on the four Madonna's following concert tours. Most recently, "Music" was performed during the halftime of the Super Bowl XLVI.
