Madonna Reveals Creative Forces Behind ‘Music’

Published November 17th, 2000 - 02:00 GMT

Madonna’s latest hit record, Music was influenced by European music, according to CNN online. 

In an interview with the online news source, the Material Mom said that that is the reason she chose Britain's William Orbit and France's Mirwais Ahmadzai to help her produce Music.  

"I have to work with people that I find exciting," Madonna said. "I like to find somebody who's a little bit more avant-garde."  

The technology-savvy Orbit helped Madonna on her Grammy-winning album Ray of Light in 1998, helping establish her dance-music credentials. She found Mirwais after hearing a demo tape of his club music. He has what he calls a "new vision of disco" that's overtaking Paris.  

French people got it going on right now," Madonna said. "There are influences of French music from the '60s and '70s on the album." –
