This is going to be Queen M's 13th studio album. The world is ready. We now have the all the information we will ever have before it comes out. We have the tracklist, the album covers, the lead single, and the songs.
If you really want to you can hear every single one of the 25 new Madonna songs. They've all been leaked in their unmastered form. I don't know what that means. I haven't listened to them. I have been a diligent fan and my knowledge of the new Madonna album consists of the six songs she released with the pre-order in December, and the three songs she released the day after the Grammy's in February.
At this point you should have heard “Living For Love”. Firstly, I did a Friday Favorites article, so stay updated, and secondly it's now on the radio. It may not be slaying it the way Nick Jonas did with “Jealous”, but it's on there. The music video is all you need.
Madonna is spurring on illuminati jabs on the internet and of course calls against her use of religious imagery. Nothing new really.
Honestly, beside the Madonna performance (where she literally recreated the “Living For Love” video) all you needed to know is that Beyonce was robbed and no one knows who the fuck Beck is. Madonna was vaulted into the air to close out her performance. The only thing more killer that night was Beyonce and her raw vocals.
She has succeeded in making “Living For Love” instantly iconic. Just like “Rebel Heart” will be. So preorder it or run out to the stores on March 10th and get you a copy. You will not regret it. And, if 25 tracks sounds daunting to you, just remember that's the super-deluxe edition. The standard edition only has 14 songs. A lot less to take in for someone new to the Madonna world.
