  1. People is reading too much about the mixtape thing. She probably means she's mixing the album or something that has nothing to it with it. I really don't think she's releasing a mixtape. Well, unless the new album is Rebel Heart Volume 2, that with all those different sounds sounded more like a mixtape than a proper cohesive album.

    That's your opinion, mine is different. I think American Pie, Amazing, Runaway Lover and Gone are so strongly connected in their production, that they would have make a cohesive E.P.
    And American Pie never screamed "bonus track". It sold nearly as much copies as the title track. Outside the US it's a regular album track and worldwide it's one of her most successful singles. 

    American Pie IS a bonus track at the end of the he record, not even released in the American version of the album. DAD is not the last song and was released on the album everywhere. Madonna too said she regretted putting AP as a bonus and that’s why it wasn’t included on GHV2.

    I mean, if someone had never heard Like A Prayer in their life and only heard a 20 second snippet from the Met Gala performance do we really think that would give them a sense of what the actual album version sounds like other than the lyrics and the melody? Prolly not, no...so I very highly doubt the Met performance of a 20 second snippet during a highly stylized performance has anything to do with what’s gone on in the studio since. 

    Yes, also the Met Gala was almost 6 months ago and it happened shortly after she started working in the studio.

    I think for me personally the issue is not that she will have waited so long to release new music. If she went all Kate Bush (not an artistic comparison by any measure...just an example) and disappeared for five years, and the (mostly British in Kate’s case) public was genuinely curious to see how she and her music had evolved, I’d see that as an impactful career choice. However, the fact that we have been so consistently exposed to Madonna via social media throughout her musical absence and that much of that presence has focused on purely commercial endeavors that are demographically alienating to much of her fanbase has dampened spirits, lessened expectations, heightened cynicism and temporarily destroyed a part of the artist’s mystique. That can’t be a good thing as far as I can see right now. Again, just an opinion...I don’t want to make that the sole focus because I personally am totally excited to get new music whenever it arrives, and am open to being blown away by however Madonna has evolved musically. I have very rarely been disappointed by any of her musical endeavors, but I definitely do not share her opinion that her skincare line is creative or artistic, nor do I find her advertising campaigns sharp or compelling. So I get why we are all anxiously awaiting signs that the album release is near, and I really hope she draws a clear line between her music and her peripheral “projects and products”. When all is said and done, of course Madonna is the decider of how she manages her career, and her focus is her prerogative, but she gained an audience through music. 

    Thank you. Best post in a while over here.

    I’m trying to restrain myself from getting involved in the RH debate which some will obviously be labeled “tired,” but ...

    While Messiah isn’t a perfect song (no bridge) and seems to suffer from some technical weaknesses (audio levels on her vocals seem to be distorted in a few spots)... I don’t think the strings can be called “fake.” In fact, didn’t she post a video from the recording session with the string orchestra? I was pretty sure she shared that on Instagram. (Just like she posted the lyrics for Messiah very early on, too...)

    Perhaps you’re thinking of “Masterpiece” — which I love and believe is a beautiful song, too — seems to have synth strings instead of real ones. Which is a real head scratcher, but ...

    The strings she used on the final version are fake strings. You can clearly hear the difference with the demos.

    It leaked and therefore was released 2 months before its actual release. 

    Its an average lead single for her.

    Bad comparison.

    If she can keep the lead single under wraps and pick a stronger lead single than appearing on then Grammys and BRITs could help where the 2015 perrmances didn’t (Except fans enjoying them).

    If if if. Madonna is 60, she will never be a huge single artist again. Everybody should just deal with it and just hope the new album is amazing because that what matters. Since she’s working with Mirwais and not some hot producer of the moment she probably knows that too and thank god for it.

    But why are we considering the album was postponed ?  Maybe it was the idea since the beginning 

    Maybe because that’s what they said on Vogue Italia? And since Giovanni Bianco works for the magazine and they planned a whole special about her maybe just maybe it was only logical to believe it? It’s not like we thought it as going to be released this year because it was written on a blog or on Twitter.

    She shot RH's album cover & artwork in Nov then the album came out 4 months later, only the album cover was revealed in Dec, early because of the leaks!

    And? Sorry but Beyonce, Eminem etc physical albums were pressed after the surprise release and they were released 1-2 weeks after that. The cover for RH was released on iTunes and it was the cover we all know, pressing an album doesn't take that much when everything is ready. I mean, RH didn't even had the credits. it's not like they spent 4 months working on the artwork.

    Just the cover because of the leaks, the album still came much later

    Thank you, I didn’t know that lol. 

    My point is that she can do the cover today and release it in two weeks. You don’t need much time to do that, even pressing albums is very fast nowadays. Also we know now she probably didn’t shoot the cover yet but it’s not like she posts every single thing she does on Instagram. Who knows, maybe she already did some stuff related to the album.
