Madonna Wins Best Pop Album For 'Ray Of Light' In 1999 | GRAMMY Rewind
The art-pop queen accepted the award—presented by Jennifer Lopez and Jerry Seinfeld—rocking a dramatic red kimono-sleeved dress and fierce red lips in the latest episode of GRAMMY Rewind.
In 1998, art-pop queen Madonna released her seventh studio album Ray of Light, four years after her prior LP, Bedtime Stories, marking the longest gap between projects since her epic self-titled debut in 1983. Always the artistic chameleon, it offered a new side to the "Like a Prayer" singer, serving up an expansive, pulsing U.K. electro sound, as encapsulated on the driving title cut.
For the latest GRAMMY Rewind, watch a brunette Madonna take home Best Pop Album for the 1998 album. She accepts the award rocking a dramatic red kimono-sleeved dress and fierce red lips, along with co-producer William Orbit and mixer/engineer David Reitzas. Marking her successful entrance into the dance music space, title track also earned her GRAMMYs for Best Dance Recording and Best Music Video.
