Confessions on a Dance Floor was the tenth studio album by American recording artist MADONNA. It was released on November 15, 2005 by Warner Bros Records. The album was a complete departure from her last studio album,American Life (2003). It included influences of 70s and 80s disco as well as modern-day club music. Initially, she began collaborating with Mirwais Ahmadzai and even recorded two tracks for the album. However, Madonna felt that their collaboration was not going in the direction she desired. At that time, Madonna met Stuart Price while overseeing her documentary, I'm Going to Tell You a Secret . The album was majorly recorded at Price's home-studio where Madonna spent most of her time during the recordings. Songs on the album use samples and references of music by other dance-oriented artists like ABBA, Donna Summer, Pet Shop Boys, Bee Gees and Depeche Mode.
Four singles were released from the album. "Hung Up," the first single, became Madonna's most successful single worldwide by topping the charts in forty-five countries, thus earning a place in the Guiness Book of World Records. It was followed by "Sorry" which was another chart topping success. It became Madonna's 12th number-one single in the United Kingdom. "Get Together" and "Jump" were released as the third and fourth singles respectively, both becoming successful on the dance charts.
After its release, the album debuted at the top of the charts in most nations. It became Madonna's sixth number-one album on the Billboard 200 albums chart. She was also honored with a Grammy Award for "Best Dance/Electronic Album" in 2007, as well as "International Female Solo Artist" at the 2006 BRIT Awards. The supporting tour for the album, known as Confessions Tour, has been considered one of M's brightest tours ever.
As for me, this is one my fav Madonna albums, as each single was being released I can recall how excited I was getting. Each of them created lots of expectation and excitement. I enjoyed every second of COADF.. what about you???Did you see her live during the CT? how was that experience?
