Madonna’s discography is getting larger rather quickly. The waiting time from “Confessions on a Dance Floor” to “Hard Candy” was of three years, and the latter to “MDNA” was four years, and today it all points out the Queen of Pop will be releasing a new album this year! And that would mean that…(taking off the ‘MDNA’ touring period), that Madonna only had one full year to record this?
Today, Monday, April 21st, we find out the 13th studio album of her career may be already DONE. Her close friends and long time collaborators, fashion photographers Mert and Marcus (who work together as duo), uploaded, in the early hours of Monday, a photo they had just taken of Madonna in their hotel room on Instagram. The caption reads:
‘In my room listening to the NEW ALBUM!!!!! Im DYING!!!!!! LET ME LOVE YOU FROM INSIDE OUT ???????? @madonna’
Wow, is Madonna’s new album truly completed? That was fast! Or, perhaps, she only played for them a few new tracks? Mert and Marcus’ Instagram is truly mysterious!
So far, we know Madonna has written and recorded in the studio with; Natalia Kills. MoZella, Symbolyc One, Toby Gad, and Avicii. And we only found out Madonna had began recording her 13th album via an interview with ‘The Global and Mail’ in February.
If the 13th LP is indeed finished, I hope it is good! And not a fiasco like ‘MDNA’ was two years ago. Remember when William Orbit slammed that album a bit?. By the way, do you think she’s planning a summer release, or a Beyoncé-like iTunes release?
On Madonna: “I was in some ways in love with Madonna. I saw her dancing to Holiday [on TV] and she was dressed very well … It was exactly in my spirit and I said, ‘Oh, she must be English!’ because the look was not at all American. I loved her music — I love that first period of Madonna more than anything else.”

After traveling around the world and witnessing an overwhelming amount of discrimination, intolerance, and bigotry — I felt I needed to make a statement.
I started ArtForFreedom.com in September 2013 to give artists everywhere a platform to define what freedom means to them and to allow them to express their right for freedom of expression.
Now I am asking you — the BuzzFeed community — to share with me and others your artistic expression of freedom. This can be in the form of photography, video, dance, poetry, etc. I will be going through those entries directly on April 14 at 7 p.m. and giving you my input and encouragement to let your voice be heard LOUDLY.
An artist has the responsibility to not only reflect society, but to shape it.
If you need any inspiration, I made you a BuzzFeed-worthy list of some of the many freedom fighters who have guided me along the way with their actions as well as their art.
Are you with me? Then submit below and I will see you on April 14.
