It’s been a train wreck for Madonna over the past few months with music leaks soring all over the internet, from early ‘Rebel Heart’ demos created back in March 2014. Once Madonna arrived back from Malawi, she was livid when given news about the leaked demos in late 2014.
Now the entire FINISHED, yet to be announced 25 track Super Deluxe ‘Rebel Heart’ album has leaked in full on the internet. Madonna knows about the latest batch of leaks and had a complete meltdown…it wasn’t a pretty sight to say the least.
To be clear Madonna does not want to acknowledge these finished leaks as everyone will basically download them out of interest. Although Madonna posted teasers for ‘Living For Love’ in response to build hype for the promo cycle.
On Instagram Madonna has indirectly responded to the finished album leaking:
“Current Mood! SMFH ! We live in a craZy world. With everything going on in the Universe we should all just be #livingforlove”
There were various secret listening parties over the past week for ‘Rebel Heart’ and all of the new songs were played. And since then the entire album leaked.
Madonna has already confirmed that the music was recorded on computers NOT connected to the internet in any form. Therefore the entire album HAS leaked either from the listening party or simply put…Madonna has a mole in her team.
It’s clear since Madonna had ‘Give Me All Your Luvin’ leak in 2011 by a hacker months before the release of MDNA in 2012. That this makes Madonna look like an amateur at best. Madonna’s team has not learned in the slightest from past mistakes. Usually a finished album leaks one week before release but not 5 weeks before. Even worse having every demo leaked months before is a disgrace for everyone involved in managing the project.
There has been discussion between Madonna and her team to drop the album ‘Rebel Heart’ on iTunes this Monday 9th of Febuary, right after The Grammys performance. So far it’s still on plan to be released in March due to the schedule…although chance of having lost sales could be a result of not adopting to the leaks.
On a positive note, The ‘Rebel Heart’ album has been receiving a positive 90% from various fans who have listened to the finished album. It’s being branded Madonna’s best work since ‘Ray Of Light’ and ‘Confessions On A Dance floor’ which is great news for everyone.
Would you rush release ‘Rebel Heart’ or wait one more month, if you had the power?
