Pearl loved listening to Living for Love, a clean, uplifting and catchy number that will form part of Madonna’s Rebel Heart album to be released in mid to late March of this year. This release has a beat that is reminiscent of, in our opinion, Like a Prayer – that became an anthem everyone remembered.
This morsel of the new album though came with the usual Madonna drama. Not only was it released too early in the songstress’s eyes, she was planning on having this drop on February 14th just in time for Valentine’s Day when everyone is Living for Love! The Twitterverse was inundated by her millions of her followers as the artwork for Rebel Heart was revealed to show the pop queens face entangled in black string. This has created a slew of mems that have translated the effect to other famous heads from Marilyn Monroe to Homer Simpson. Madonna went one step further, altering the visages of Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela and Bob Marley in order to describe the famous civil rights leader as “rebel hearts” like herself.
For the Madonna fans this brings back the old Mag to the forefront. The beat, the sound, the clarity that we were all used to throughout the 80’s and 90’s. As a famous man in a hat would say – do yourself a favour!
