Ray of Light is the seventh studio album by American singer Madonna. It was released on February 22, 1998 by Maverick and Warner Bros. Records. A departure from her previous work, Ray of Light is an electronica, dance and techno-pop album which incorporates several genres, including ambient, trip hop and house music. Vocally, the album saw Madonna sing with greater breadth and a fuller tone. Mystical themes are also strongly present in both the music and lyrics, as a result of Madonna embracing Kabbalah, her study of Hinduism and Buddhism, as well as her daily practice of Hatha Yoga.
The album received universal acclaim with reviews commending the singer's new musical direction. Called her "most adventurous" record, Ray of Light has been noted for its mature, restrained nature; reviewers also praised Madonna's vocals.
It won four Grammy Awards from a total of six nominations. Commercially, the album peaked at number one in many countries, such as Australia, Canada, Germany, and the United Kingdom. On the US Billboard 200, the album debuted and peaked at number two, with the biggest first week sales by a female artist at the time. It has sold more than 16 million copies worldwide and Five singles were released from the album, including the international hits "Frozen" and "Ray of Light". Obviously in France it achieved sales of over 600.000, meaning a double platinum disc was awarded by the record label.
