"There's only one queen and that's Madonna, bitch" -- Niicki Minaj
Rapper Nicki Minaj could not be more sharply on-point. Many have tried but she still remains the one and only Queen of POp. After nearly 30 years of making music, no one has come close to matching the impact of Madonna. She is truly peerless, ever-evolving and experimenting with sounds that continually set the pace for global popular music. Madonna's unwavering commitment to her craft has translated into sales of over 200 million albums worldwide, not to mention record-breaking tours that raise the bar for creativity. Now the material girl is back with a brand new album MDNA and a brand new home which is MCA Music.
With MDNA, she breaks innovative new ground with songs that explode with ferocious rhythmic energy, while also offering the kind of irressistable poop melodies that are the hallmark of her classic compositions.
It features the hit single "Give Me All Your Luvin" featuring Nicki Minaj & M.I.A which she first performed at the Super Bowl halftime. It was written by Madonna, martin Solveig, Micki Minaj and M.I.A., composed by Martin Solveig and Michael Tordjman and produced by Madonna and Martin Solveig. The Super Bowl appearance also inspired the football and cheerleader themed music video.
MDNA also includes the new track "Girl Gone Wild," an anthemic collaboration with Italian club wunderkind Benny Benassi. Amid a frenetic collision of beats and keyboards, Madonna sets the tone for an album that she vividly characterizes as having the intensity of a "caged animal."
MDNA, recorded in New York and LA, reunites Madonna - multi Grammy Award winning artist, songwriter and producer - with former collaborator William Orbit who co-wrote and co-produced several cuts on the new album. Other co-producers include MArtin Solveig, The Demolition Crew, Marco "benny" Benassi and Alessandro "Alle" Benassi, Hardy "Indigo" MUanza, Michael Malih and Madonna.
Other tracks to look forward to are the reckless joyride "Gang Bang," "Some Girls." stomping anthem "I Don't Give A...," "I'm A Sinner," the deliciously romantic "Falling Free," and the gently percussive "Masterpiece," which won a 2012 Golden Globe Award for its inclusion in her motion picture directorial debut, "W.E."
MDNA is unequivocal proof that Madonna continues to be the world's most inventive musical artist. Her desire to bring bold new ideas to te mainstream is unparalleled. No doubt, this will be illustrated in a worldwide concert trek that will show the artist shattering the boundaries of a traditional stage show.
Madonna Understands and respects the simple purity of pop music, while thriving on the belief that people are as smart and hungry for truth and art as she is. It is that belief that will undeniably keep Madonna creating more inspired and inspiring music for years to come.
MDNA, the sensational new album from Madonna, is now out in CDs exclusively under MCA Music and available at Astroplus and Odyssey Music & Video or online via www.mymusicstore.com.ph. TO download Madonna's music on your cellphone, text MDNA to 3456.
