Madonna has released her expanded "American Pie" maxi-single across digital platforms.

The track was released to promote the soundtrack of her 2000 film "The Next Best Thing." Though the film did not fare well with critics, the song peaked at No. 29 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs chart and quickly became a UK No. 1 hit. Madonna has shared different remixes for the single including in the release is the original version of the track, along with six other mixes from Richard Humpty Vission and Victor Calderone. The release comes ahead of a monumental year, which will see her begin a career-spanning reissue project, documenting her entire discography. Meanwhile, Madonna recently revealed she was in the studio with Swae Lee, with whom she collaborated on her 2019 "Madame X" cut "Crave," working on new songs. “So great to be back in the studio making music again,” Madonna penned. “Surprises [sic] in the New Year.” Madonna recently released her ‘Madame X’ concert documentary on Paramount+, along with a live album featuring tracks from the performance. In a review of the record, Retro Pop said ‘Madame X (Music From The Theater Xperience)’ “captures the ‘Madame X’ Tour and reaffirms that she is and remains at the top of her game.”
