“Celebration” (Stream)

    After the tepid, inane, Timbaland of the lost-produced atrocity that was “4 Minutes,” it’s nice to see that Madonna hasn’t lost her bearings entirely. At the very least, new single “Celebration” shows that Madonna is aware of the 90s house/trance-y revival that has taken place in pop music the past couple of years, having tapped Paul Oakenfold for the track’s production. The lyrics are still a collection of surprisingly annoying pop clichés, but if you haven’t faulted Madonna for that yet, you’re not going to start now. You can listen to the track in full here.
