Ray of Light is the seventh studio album by American singer-songwriter Madonna, released on March 3, 1998 by Maverick Records. The album is a pop and dance record, yet, it contains elements of electronic music within its composition, making it a departure from her previous work. Additionally, it incorporates several genres and subgenres, including techno and ambient. The album has several themes, including spirituality.

There was no reason Ray of Light should’ve been such a hit. After the collapse of grunge in the mid-90s, the music industry had begun to lean into the perky pubescence of Backstreet Boys and NSYNC. 1998 was the year that TRL launched on MTV, and soon after, Britney Spears would release her teasing teen debut,. Baby One More Time, catalyzing a string of young women-like fellow teens Christina Aguilera and Mandy Moore-to overrun the charts with coy love songs.

Ray of Light is Madonna’s acclaimed seventh album. Released shortly after giving birth to her first child and just before turning 40, the album finds Madonna addressing mortality, maternity and her happiness. The album produced the singles Drowned World/Substitute for Love, Ray of Light, Nothing Really Matters, Frozen, and The Power of Good-Bye. Ray of Light Q&A. Art Direction Kevin Reagan.
