With the promo machine running full steam for Madonna‘s new album ‘Rebel Heart’, the Pop queen is already looking beyond current single single ‘Living For Love’.
For, this week not only was it confirmed which single will succeed the dance-floor anthem, details about its accompanying video were revealed too. Per multiple sources including The Inquisitr, ‘Ghosttown’ will serve as the official second single to be lifted from ‘Rebel Heart’.
Elsewhere, reliable reports suggest Madge’s longtime collaborator Jonas Akerlund will helm the music video. With visual credits such as ‘Ray of Light’ and Lady GaGa‘s ‘Telephone’, Akurland certainly makes for a great choice.
Haven’t heard ‘Ghosttown’ yet? Take a listen to the official stream which was added to Madonna’s YouTube today below.
‘Rebel Heart’, the album, arrives on March 10th worldwide.
The Queen of Pop reigns again with 'Living for Love,' tying with George Strait, the King of Country, for the most leaders on a single Billboard chart. MadonnamakesBillboardchart history, as she earns her 44th No. 1 onDance Club Songs, where "Living for Love" lifts 2-1. (The ranking, dated March 7, will refresh on Billboard.com on Thursday, Feb. 26.)bWith the coronation, Madonna equalsGeorge Strait, who's logged 44 No. 1s onHot Country Songs, for the most leaders ever by an act on a singularBillboardchart. It's fitting history for the artists also known, respectively, and reverently, as the Queen of Pop and the King of Country.
Television host and Madonna super fan Kelly Ripa appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday night and revealed how she once creeped out her idol.
Ripa said that she’d been invited to an Oscars party hosted by Madonna a few years ago and, upon meeting the legendary singer, hugged her and smelled her. According to Ripa, Madonna was not impressed with the “weirdo” behavior.
Despite the frosty reaction, Ripa still seems to think fondly of the encounter. Beaming, she excitedly told Kimmel, “She smells like gardenias!”
Madonna’s going to be seated right in front of the man who helped launch her music career: Nile Rodgers, the man responsible for her first two albums. “Like a Virgin,” anyone? He was just speaking about her, saying he’d love to work with her again. Nile is currently living it up after the success of the last Daft Punk album, an album her plays on.
I wonder how long it’s been since Nile and Madonna spoke.
The "Living for Love" music video is the first to premiere on the app's Snap Channel.
Today, Madonna is set to premiere the first music video from her new album, Rebel Heart, on Snapchat, the picture messaging app that was recently valued at $10 billion. The video accompanies "Living for Love," the album's first single, and will be viewable on the app's "Snap Channel."
It's been a rocky album campaign for the pop star, 56, who has endured two devastating album leaks, the second of which happened on Monday and included the 25-track deluxe version. Rebel Heart will go on sale Tuesday, March 10th, after Madonna performs at the Grammy Awards on Feb. 8th, and the Brit Awards on Feb. 25th.
The video was directed by the French duo Julien Choquart and Camille Hirigoyen, together known as J.A.C.K., was edited by longtime Madonna collaborator Danny B. Tull, and styled by B. Akerlund -- who also works wth Beyonce, Britney Spears and Lady Gaga. It was choreographed by Megan Lawson.
To state the obvious, it's a major coup for the three-year-old Snapchat, which boasts an estimated 200 million users. CEO Evan Spiegel made headlines during last year's Sony hack when a series of uncovered e-mails revealed that he was at work on an in-app music feature, including negotiations with Vevo to bring music video viewing inside Snapchat's interface. Those talks reported stalled, but the music feature being discussed was likely tied to Discover, which was announced last month.
Discover feeds news and entertainment from 12 different companies directly to the user. Participating organizations include Warner Music Group, National Geographic, People magazine, ESPN and Vice, who enlist editors to select stories (which can include photo essays and videos) that are shared and refreshed every 24 hours.
Mike Tyson Talks 'Intense, Crazy' Cameo on Madonna's 'Rebel
BY JASON NEWMAN | January 23, 2015
When Madonna released the finished track list for her
upcoming album Rebel Heart earlier this week, the most conspicuous guest star
wasn't Nicki Minaj, Nas or Chance the Rapper. That distinction fell to Mike
Tyson, who appears with the singer and Chance the Rapper on new track
"Iconic". And while Tyson hasn't heard the finished track yet (a
leaked demo of the song only featured Madonna), the former boxer-turned-actor
tells Rolling Stone that his role was similar to his 1998 appearance as a hype
man on battle rapper Canibus' "Second Round K.O."
The U.K. 12” vinyl picture disc for 1989’s “Cherish” with photo from the video for the prior single, “Express Yourself”, by Alberto Tolot. However, the disc incorrectly states the photographer as Herb Ritts, who took the photo used for the standard sleeve.
The Queen of Pop announcedthis week that her 13th studio album, Rebel Heart, drops March 10 and that she'll be performing at the Grammys February 8. Fans have already heard several tracks from Rebel Heart after they leaked online during the Christmas holiday — Madonna took the Beyoncé-esque step of releasing the hacked music seemingly out of the blue.
While publications like The New York Times applauded the new music, the songs didn't resonate with the public in the way "Vogue" or "Hung Up" did. We'll wait to cast judgment on Rebel Heartuntil the album is released in its entirety, but until then, we thought it the perfect time to kickoff the inevitable argument among gay men by ranking all of the singer's previous albums from worst to best.
Don't agree with our list? (Of course you don't.) Vote for Madonna's best album on the last page.
"I am profoundly grateful to the FBI, the Israeli Police investigators and anyone else who helped lead to the arrest of this hacker. I deeply appreciate my fans who have provided us with pertinent information and continue to do so regarding leaks of my music. Like any citizen, I have the right to privacy. This invasion into my life - creatively, professionally, and personally remains a deeply devastating and hurtful experience, as it must be for all artists who are victims of this type of crime." -Madonna
