Madonna Glorifies Illuminati in New Song & Blasphemes, Calling The All Seeing Eye ‘Truth and Light’ [LISTEN HERE]

In this day and age the illuminati is popularly associated to people in power who use evil and witchcraft to advance, but according to pop icon Madonna’s and her new song the illuminati is a good thing and she is happy to be apart of it.

The singer released a song this month titled “Illuminati” in which she names all of her celebrity peers that have been linked to the elite group. The singer explained that those people are not illuminati but instead the All Seeing Eye is truth and light. Truth and Light are both words associated to Jesus in the Bible and in the context of the song; really do not make sense unless the singer has another message for her listeners.

In a recent Facebook post along with a picture displaying just one of her eyes Madonna tells people she is grateful that they call her a member of the illuminati. “Thank you for the compliment! ‪#‎knowledgeispower #rebelheart ‪#‎illuminati,” she wrote.

Madonna Debuts Three Tracks on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs Chart

Madonna catapults onto Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart with three tracks from her upcoming Rebel Heart album: “Bitch I’m Madonna” (No. 14), “Living for Love” (No. 16) and “Unapologetic Bitch” (No. 26).

The songs, available for instant download upon pre-ordering the album (due March 10) or as a la carte purchases, were made available digitally in a surprise move at midnight on Friday (Dec. 19), following massive demo leaks earlier in the week. (An additional 14 demos leaked on Dec. 23.) The songs soar onto the chart, therefore, on the strength of only a partial week of sales and with only small benefits from other metrics (streaming, radio airplay and club play).

The cuts mark Madonna’s first entries on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, which premiered on Jan. 26, 2013.

“Bitch I’m Madonna,” featuring Nicki Minaj, leads with sales of 12,000 downloads, according to Nielsen Music. “Living,” the album’s first proper single, starts with 10,000 sold and “Unapologetic,” 7,000. The tracks begin on Dance/Electronic Digital Songs at Nos. 9, 12 and 14, respectively. (She notches her first top 10 on the list, which launched in January 2010.)

Two versions of “Living,” the album original and an instrumental, shipped to club DJs on the evening of Dec. 21. Remixes are currently in production and, once approved by Madonna, will be sent out.

Madonna leads all acts with 43 Dance Club Songs No. 1s, with her most recent, “Turn Up the Radio,” ruling on Sept. 8, 2012.

Madonna On New ‘Rebellious and Romantic’ Music, Demo Leaks, ‘Possibly’ Crashing the Grammys and the ‘Crazy’ Sony Hack

Madonna told Billboard on Dec. 21 that “Living” went through more than 10 incarnations during the recording process, including ones with vocals from British singer MNEK. “There will be remixes with MNEK’s voice,” she confirmed.

As for radio airplay, top 40 has so far not warmed to “Living.” It’s received a mere 10 plays at the format (through Dec. 23) (led by KMXV Kansas City, which has sampled it three times). Then again, Interscope Records serviced the song at midnight, Monday morning (Dec. 22) as a soft sell. An Interscope source tells Billboard that the label will re-service the song after New Year’s and decide on an official “add” date shortly thereafter. (Surely the song’s rush release and Christmas week timing, when many programmers are on vacation, play into radio’s general lack of interest in the song so far.)

Madonna last reached the Pop Songs airplay chart in 2012, when “Give Me All Your Luvin’ ” (featuring Minaj and M.I.A.) and “Girl Gone Wild” reached Nos. 24 and 38, respectively. “Luvin’ “was aided by coordinated first-day plays on iHeartMedia-owned stations, as well as Madonna’s performance of it during the halftime show at Super Bowl XLVI.

“The reason I wanted to call the record Rebel Heart was because I felt like it explores two very distinct sides of my personality,” Madonna says. (The album’s buzz spurred Madonna to top the Billboard + Twitter real-time Trending 140 chart on Dec. 22.) “The rebellious, renegade side of me, and the romantic side of me.

“(Fans will) just get my rebellious and romantic side all mixed in together.”)

‘Rebel Heart’: Madonna Reveals the Story Behind Six Surprise Songs

In her first Q&A about the surprise launch of her 13th album, the Queen of Pop opens up about working with Nicki and Kanye and who’s really in the Illuminati

For the past year, Madonna has been updating fans on the progress of her 13th studio album through Instagram posts picturing collaborators (Nicki Minaj, Avicii, Diplo) and inspirations (children in Malawi, Miley Cyrus, placards reading “I need more money and power and less shit from you people”). But last week her creative process was interrupted by the leak of 13 songs she characterized as “unfinished demos.” Faced with a potential calamity, her team made a quick decision: rebekleinfinish and release six of the tracks immediately on iTunes and set a firm early-March 2015 release date for the full LP, titled Rebel Heart.

The day after the tracks hit iTunes, Madonna was Number One on the digital music service’s charts in 41 countries — everywhere from the U.S. and Israel to Russia and the Philippines. And she gave her first interview about the surprise launch to Rolling Stone:

It’s safe to presume you’ve had a busy couple of days?
Oh my goodness. So busy. Let’s talk about something good.

The album focuses on two themes: listening to your heart and being a rebel. When you sat down to write, were you guided by these ideas above any musical plans?
I never sit down and consciously think I want to write a song about a subject. Music leads me to ideas and to where I want to go emotionally. When I first started, I was writing with Avicii’s team of writers and they were separated into two different groups. One of them had a much more upbeat approach to songwriting, sonically speaking, and the other team chose darker chords. The music leads me – so I get lost in the sound of the music, and that creates a kind of emotional palate. I found as I would look back at my songs and witness what I had written, I was coming from two very distinct places. That happened organically, not planned out, and I was observing, “Oh, these are two very strong sides of me that I need to express.”

Madonna Q&A: On Her New ‘Rebellious and Romantic’ Music, Demo Leaks, ‘Possibly’ Crashing the Grammys & the ‘Crazy’ Sony Hack

“It’s kind of like the old me and the new me all mixed in together,” Madonna tells Billboard of her stunning new single “Living For Love.”

It’s a rather large understatement to say that it’s been a crazy couple of weeks for Madonna.

On Tuesday night, more than 10 of the singer’s unreleased demo recordings turned up on the Internet, causing the singer and her team to go into “overdrive” to combat the stolen leaks. (“I haven’t slept in a week,” she says.) The songs were from the sessions for her forthcoming 13th studio album, which at the time, had not been announced (and is still not finished).

To counter the leak, Madonna accelerated the release of new music: On Friday night (Dec. 19), she announced that her album, Rebel Heart, would be released on March 10, 2015 through Interscope Records, and six of its tracks would become immediately available to purchase. Among those tracks are the set’s lead single, the Diplo-produced soul-meets-house jam “Living For Love.” How far ahead of schedule was the release? The single wasn’t supposed to premiere until Feb. 14, 2015.

The album — which features a collaboration with Nicki Minaj — is also available to pre-order, and has topped the iTunes Store’s top albums tally in more than 40 countries, including the United States. She also dominated the real time Billboard + Twitter Trending 140 chart on Saturday night (Dec. 20), where two of the album’s songs (“Living For Love” and “Bitch, I’m Madonna”) were concurrently in the top three.

Billboard spoke to Madonna on Sunday morning via phone, to talk about her new album, its “chaotic” recording process, and how her day-to-day business has changed because of the leaks. She also discusses her fondness of Diplo (he’s a “badass”), a possible Grammy Awards performance, and how no one has ever called her an “Unapologetic Bitch.”

Billboard: How are you doing?
Madonna: I’m good. I’m good, I haven’t slept in a week, but I’m good.

I can only imagine the week that you’ve had so far.
Yeah. It’s been a very intense couple of weeks.

Are you OK right now? As OK as you can be considering what’s been happening?
Yeah. I mean, you know, I’m not happy that unreleased demos are out there in the world for people to hear, listen, judge, etcetera, etcetera. Once that happened we went into overdrive. A) Trying to figure out where the leaks were coming from, and then B) Trying to combat that with putting out finished music that people could focus on versus demos that were never meant for anyone to hear. So, that led to no sleep.
