I know I write a lot about Madonna. I can’t help it. She’s my favorite artist and a major source of inspiration. So, if you are reading this and find yourself annoyed, thinking, “Oh brother, ANOTHER Madonna post?!” then simply skip this post. She’s hard at work in the studio working on album number 12 AND will most likely be singing at the 2012 Super Bowl. So, expect many more Madonna posts. 😉
Now that I got that out of the way, I’m happy to write that, judging by the reactions of mega talented producer William Orbit (Ray of Light, Music) and long time manager Guy Oseary, Madonna’s new album just may be her best yet.
Orbit took to Twitter to announce:
Madonna has phenomenal understanding of both the minutiae of music and the big picture. Zooming in, zooming out. 4ever amazing
Working with Madonna is a treat. Fantastic tracks and vibes. Going deep. She’s ON IT !!! This is THE album!
Guy Oseary, Madonna’s manager, also had nothing but praise in his Twitter feed for “THE album.” He told one follower the music was “so goooooooood.”
Industry insiders also revealed that her new single, supposedly entitled “Give Me All Your Love,” (due out early next year) is a catchy, tour de force tune that will include the vocal credits of Nicki Minaj and MIA.
Love will prove, yet again, that Madonna is still on top of her game. Since the beginning of her career, she’s paid close attention to the evolving sound of popular music and stayed a step ahead of other Pop divas like Janet and Britney. From the neo Disco sound of her debut album to the R&B groove of Bedtime Stories, Madonna has delivered something fresh and new on every album.
It’s easy to see why a relatively new artist like Lady GaGa is constantly being compared to The Queen of Pop. Unusual style that captures a generation? Done it before. Put on amazing tours with incredible – and in many cases androgynous – dancers? Done that before. Released videos that revolved around religion, sex, self-expression, love or acceptance and upset religious conservatives in the process? Been there, done that.
No other artist has influenced the music industry and pressed buttons quite like Madonna has. She towers above the rest. This new single and album will be no exception. Get ready.
