Madonna Drafts Nicki Minaj And M.I.A. For First Single

Rumours abound that the Material Girl’s first single from her new album will feature M.I.A. and Nicki Minaj.


Madonna fansite hears from “sources” that nine tracks of Madonna’s new album are completed.

They report that she’s been working with William Orbit (see: ‘Ray Of Light’), “Solveg” (that would be French electro-pop producer Martin Solvieg) and Italian electro-house DJ Benny Benassi (of the saucy ‘Satisfaction’ fame). That seems right; both Orbit and Solvieg have previously been confirmed as producers.

Apparently the first single has been chosen and it will be debuted at her forthcoming SuperBowl appearance.

There’s no title yet, but word is she’s drafted ‘Superbass’ star Nicki Minaj and ‘Paper Planes’ troublemaker M.I.A. to guest on the track.

It’ll be very interesting to see what Madonna can do on her first album since 2008’s Hard Candy and since Rihanna and, particularly, Lady Gaga have be jostling for the “salacious pop queen” crown.
