Two years after Ray Of Light, Madonna returned in 2000 with the Maverick Records release Music, her first U.S. No. 1 album since 1989's Like A Prayer. The album paired her with French producer Mirwais and was an instant smash. It debuted at No. 1 around the world and was preceded by the title cut, which became her twelfth No. 1 in the U.S. and spent a month at the top of the Hot 100. Music was nominated for the 'Best Pop Vocal Album' Grammy and the "Music" single earned a nod for 'Record of the Year' and 'Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.' Music also secured Madonna the 2001 Brit Award for International Female, her first win. The album has sold over two million copies in the U.S. and another eight million internationally.
