Clockwise: Madonna; Beyoncé; Gwen Stefani; and Mariah Carey.

To celebrate the release of Madonna's latest album, MDNA, I will start out with her track from 2005, Hung Up. Off the album Confessions On A Dance Floor, Madonna spent the latter part of 2005 and the early part of 2006 on the charts and in the clubs on the strength of songs like Hung Up. The songs was written by Madonna, Stuart Price, and Benny Andersson & Björn Ulvaeus, the B's in ABBA!

You can find Confessions On A Dance Floor on iTunes and Amazon. The next song can be found on The Emancipation of Mimi, the 2005 release from Mariah Carey. The album contained many a hit for the Pop star, many continued the success in the clubs with great mixes. But It's Like That, written by Carey, Jermaine Dupri, Manuel Seal, and Johntá Austin, was perfect for whatever you wanted, as performed by Carey and Fatman Scoop and Dupri.

You can find The Emancipation of Mimi on iTunes and Amazon. Our next song had an interesting journey to the clubs. Check On It was written by Beyoncé Knowles, Kasseem "Swizz Beatz" Dean, Sean Garrett, Angela Beyince, and Stayve Thomas to be a part of the soundtrack for The Pink Panther remake featuring Beyoncé. Although it didn't make the soundtrack, Beyoncé decided to rerecord it with the assistance of Bun B and Slim Thug and release it as a single, and a bonus track on the Destiny's Child #1s album. So Check On It with Beyoncé.

You can find Check On It on iTunes and Amazon. In 2004, Gwen Stefani stepped away from the band No Doubt, and released her first solo effort, Love. Angel. Music. Baby. She was interested in making an album of silly dance music, and one of those songs was Hallaback Girl. It was written by Gwen Stefani, Pharrell Williams, and Chad Hugo, in response to an interview where Courtney Love referred to Stefani as a cheerleader. With the single and album, she also became a chart-topping solo act.

You can find Love. Angel. Music. Baby on iTunes and Amazon.
