ONTD original. Confessions on a Dance Floor was released 10 years ago!


Each time Madonna releases an album, there seems to be a feeling that she has something to prove, as if whatever has come before has not been enough to resolve doubts about her talent and staying power. In most cases, that perception is absurd Madonna has weathered many storms in her career, and a poorly received album here or there has not stopped her.
But it would be tough to underestimate how important this transitional album was to Madonna’s career longevity when it arrived in 2005; in short, with Confessions on a Dance Floor, a DJ (Stuart Price) may have saved her creative life.

Madonna has described the recording of Confessions as being "like going back. It was so liberating. I want to be in shit holes. I want to be in small place with no furniture. I want to keep it the way it was when I started. sitting on the floor and scribbling in my notebook. I work best under those circumstances."

Confessions is Madonna's most stylistically consistent album, so much so that all the songs are seamlessly joined in a continuous mix. "I wanted a record with no ballads. I wanted there to be no breaks. with one song segueing into the next - just like in a disco."

Confessions on a Dance Floorpeaked at number one in 40 countries, earning a place in the 2007 Guinness Book of World Records as the album topping the charts in most countries. In the United States, the album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart, selling 350,000 copies in its first week.

Although it was released in one and a half months of 2005
, Confessions on a Dance Floorwas still the sixth world's biggest-selling album of the year, with sales of 6.3 million copies according to the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry. Worldwide sales of the album stand at 12 million copies.

Madonna has released 4 singles off Confessions on a Dance Floor.

On October 18 2005, the lead single for Madonna’s Confessions on a Dance Floor album, Hung Up, was released. "Hung Up" became a worldwide commercial success, single has sold over 9M copies WW + peaking atop the charts of 41 countries and earning a place in the Guinness Book of World Records along with the album.
Rolling Stone magazine had this to say about the release:
Going back to disco, as she always does and always should, the queen hustled up a chintzy-sounding Abba sample, a drag queen’s wet dream of a chorus, and Stuart Price’s electrobeats. The result? One of her most captivating hits ever — and thanks to those deceptively hard-hitting lyrics, one of her most personal.

Sorry was released as the second single from the album on February 28, 2006. The song received positive reviews from contemporary critics who declared the track as the strongest song on Confessions on a Dance Floor. The songs were developed with a remixed perspective in mind. Madonna commented:
“Whenever I make records, I often like the remixes better than the original ones. So I thought, screw that. I’m going to start from that perspective”.

Get Together was released as the third single from the album by Warner Bros. Records on June 6, 2006. The decision was spurred by the fact that "Get Together" was the third most downloaded song from the album.

Jump was released as fourth and the final single from the album on October 31, 2006. Critics complimented the song and its empowerment theme.

And of course let's not forget that Confessions on a Dance Floor lead us to the one of the most iconic Madonna tour's. Which I think is her best right after Blond Ambition Tour.
