Well, it has arrived, Madonna’s first single and music video for her upcoming new album. The album is to be called “MDNA” and is her twelfth album release. The album will be out March 26, 2012.
I wasn’t sure what to think of Madonna after hearing recent interviews where she slams Lady Gaga and other pop artists. She came across to me as bitter and hateful which I of course hope isn’t the case. Madonna needs to realize that her last album was “Hard Candy” which was released back April 19, 2008. She left a hole for a longtime in the music industry that Gaga was able to fill. Now I will say that as far as music goes I like Madonna and don’t plan to turn this post into a Madonna vs. Lady Gaga type of deal. I think you can like both and I would be lying if I said Lady Gaga isn;t who I would choose first. Why? Lady Gaga is just a few years older than me and I’ve been with her music since she came out. Madonna already had a few albums out by the time I was born and had a bunch of albums out by the time I was old enough to actually want to listen to her.
With all of that said, I am excited to see Madonna is back with some new music. I really liked “Hardy Candy” and her November 2005 release “Confessions on a Dance Floor”. “Confessions” was when I was 15 and was actual the first Madonna album I owned and listened to, so my first full exposure to her. When “MDNA” comes out I am sure that I will buy because I am sure it will be a great album. I hope that she becomes less bitter sounding and acting as the year moves on. She is Madonna, people will be talking about her forever, probably long after everyone who reads this is gone. The single sounds fun and seems like it will be one of those songs that you will hear in your head all day long. Plus, she added Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. just to real people in even more. So now to the video: What do you think of it?
