What’s It Like to Remix a Madonna Song? Four Producers Share Their ‘Proud,’ ‘Scary,’ ‘Life-Changing’ Experiences

While few would argue against Madonna‘s legendary status in the dance realm, her position as an icon, innovator and general party-starter was further cemented with the August 19 release of Finally Enough Love: 50 Number Ones. This remix compilation is made up of songs from Madonna’s historic run on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart, where she has a record 50 chart-toppers — the most No. 1s for any artist on any single Billboard chart.

Finally Enough Love: 50 Number Ones, an expansion of the 16-song Finally Enough Love, features career-spanning edits from dance world stars including David Morales, Junior Vasquez, Victor Calderone, Sasha, Dubfire, Axwell, Avicii, Honey Dijon, Felix da Housecat, Bob Sinclar and Benny Benassi, whose work altogether demonstrates not only the progression of Madonna’s catalog, but the sound of dance music itself.

Madonna ’50 Number Ones’ Review: Queen of the Club

Very little has been consistent in the life of the chronically self-reinventing Queen of Pop, but one thing she will do almost without fail is turn out a number one hit.

While Madonna’s outsized influence on the landscape of pop music is inescapable, she has had no less powerful a presence in dance and house music.

Given how much she owes to a genre and culture that she has done so much to shape in turn, it should be no surprise that she has chosen to celebrate her career through the artists who have remixed and reinterpreted her iconic catalog through the years.

Arriving the week of her 64th birthday, Finally Enough Love: 50 Number Ones (★★★☆☆) commemorates her 50th time at the top of the dance charts, making her the first and only artist to hit that milestone on any Billboard chart.

Presented as a curated selection of Madonna’s personal favorite remixes and remasters, the 50-track collection is the deluxe edition of a 16-track version that dropped back in June.

Madonna’s Pop Reign Over 40 Years: A Guide to ‘Finally Enough Love’

Madonna.

The musical icon, actress, director, model, and mother has been loved, hated, lauded, and decried throughout her 40-year career, and yet she perseveres. An unprecedented record for chart-topping hits is evidence enough that, despite her critics, her music resonates with a broad, diverse, and enthusiastic audience. Not only that, but her chameleonic reign has defied trends and the commercial demand for young, new acts who go viral on TikTok. With this week’s release of the definitive remix album Finally Enough Love: 50 Number Ones, what better time than now to celebrate Madonna’s musical, fashion, and film evolution over that chart-topping period from 1982 to 2016? It was a time when she transformed from donning leg warmers and fingerless gloves to dressing as a futuristic geisha, then a cyber-disco diva. She remains as iconic and divisive as ever, but this multi-disc collection reminds us that her talent for nailing the pop zeitgeist is irrefutable.

For the past 40 years, Madonna has not only been a if not the Queen of Pop, but also the reigning monarch of clubland. She’s racked up a record-breaking 50 number-one hits on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart — remixes of which are collected on the “Finally Enough Love,: 50 Number Ones” album, which arrived today. Clocking in at 220 minutes, the album is a dizzying journey through the ever-changing dance music landscape and a testament to Madonna’s ability to evolve with it.

Madonna‘s son David Banda is en vogue — and she knows it.

The “Like a Virgin” singer stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to celebrate her upcoming Finally Enough Love: 50 Number Ones, and amid discussing her legendary catalog of music, she also mentioned her incredibly fashionable son David, 16.

Host Jimmy Fallon asked Madonna how “my man Dave” was doing, and the singer jokingly replied that her son was “so jealous” that she was there with Fallon while he was elsewhere. As any proud mother would do, she then made sure that Fallon knew that David is working on music of his own, telling the host that he would eventually be a guest on the late-night talk show.
