Jump, written by Madonna, Stuart Price and Joe Henry was supposed to be released as the third single from Confessions on a Dancefloor.  However, since "Get Together" was decided as the third single, "Jump" was released as the fourth and the final single from the album, on October 31, 2006 by Warner Bros. Records.  Madonna sings in her lower register in the song. Its lyrics talk about self-empowerment and sufficiency while looking for the prospects of a new relationship.
Contemporary critics complimented the song and its empowerment theme. They compared it to Madonna's 80s music and praised the club-anthem like quality of the song. The song peaked inside the top ten of the charts of some European countries, while peaking the chart in Italy and Hungary. In the United States, "Jump" charted in several Billboard dance charts.

The accompanying music video portrayed Madonna in a blond bob wig and a leather ensemble. It was shot in Tokyo during her 2006 Confessions Tour stopover. Madonna sang the song in front of a number of neon signs. The video also featured dancers who performed the physical discipline parkour. It was also incorporated in her Confessions Tour where Madonna and her dancers jumped around the stage actively, while singing the song.
