CD Review/ Rebel Heart by Madonna

  • Band/Artist: Madonna
  • Title: Rebel Heart
  • Date: March 10th, 2015
  • Label: Interscope Records

Rebel Heart is Madonna’s 13th studio album. The album was produced by Madonna, Diplo, Kanye West, Billboard, Avicii, DJ Dahi and Blood Diamonds, Ryan Tedder, Toby Gad, and Ariel Rechtshald. There is collaborations with Nicki Minaj, Kanye West, Nas, Chance the Rapper and Mike Tyson and the album was recorded in NYC, London, and LA.

Its been awhile since I bought a Madonna cd and I have to say that after listening to this all week this will be one that I will go out and buy. Listening to the cd it brought me back to her earlier days and its got that whole vibe to it. Rebel Heart is definitely a Madonna cd because its her to a tee with the edge (and typical Madonna) as well as you hear the softer side of Madonna which I feel we haven’t heard in awhile.

Rebel Heart has 19 tracks. I should warn you in advance that there is some language and some inappropriate content on it that you might not want to have playing with young ones around. I took no offense to it because its Madonna!

Each song on Rebel Heart is so different from the one before it but as you are listening to the cd it all blends in and goes so well together.

With that being said I loved this album and I have to agree with People Magazine saying that this is Madonna’s best album in a decade. Some of my favorite songs are Living For Love, Ghosttown, Hold tight, Joan of Arc, Wash All Over Me, Best Night, Messiah and Rebel Heart.

I think if you liked Madonna in the early days you will love this cd just as much as I did. I honestly wasn’t sure how I would feel about it but I am happy that I got accepted to review this because I really enjoyed this cd and I know it will be something that I will be going out to get.
