Madonna Officially Releases Six Songs Off Leaked Album

Well, Madonna has quickly come to terms with the recent album leak, which she initially deemed "artistic rape" and a "form of terrorism," and has released six new tracks from her album because she's what the hell, it's the holidays!

All in all, we've got some pretty standard Madonna pop songs and Diplo's presence is strong here (aka lots of warbly electronic sax upon dropping the beat). "Living for Love" (above) reminds me of the Mary J/Disclosure collab "F For You," though it could be argued that Disclosure itself is very inspired by Erotica-era early 90s electronic music anyway.

She also does that talk-rap thing for "Illuminati" in which she name drops every possible conspiracy theory-related name, from Beyoncé to the "founding fathers" to the "Google of United States" (???) to Bieber. It's goofy, but hey, at least Nicki Minaj is on there.

From "Illuminati" -

It's not Jay Z and Beyoncé
It's not Nicki or Lil Wayne
It's not Oprah and Obama
The Pope and Rihanna
Queen Elizabeth or Kanye
It's not pentagrams or witchcraft
It's not triangles or stacks of cash
Black magic or Gaga, Gucci or Prada
Riding on the golden calf
The all-seeing eye is watching tonight
That's what it is tonight, truth and the light
The all-seeing eye is watching tonight
Nothing to hide, secrets inside
It's like everybody in this party, shining like illuminati
It's the enlightenment that started it all
The founding fathers wrote it down on the wall
And now the media's misleading us all
To right and to wrong
It's time to dance and turn this dark into something
So let the fire burn, this music is bumping
We're gonna live forever, love never dies
It starts tonight
Behind the curtain of the new world order
It's not platinum-encrypted corners
It's not Isis or the phoenix,
The pyramids of Egypt
Don't make it into something sordid
It's not Steve Jobs or Bill Gates
It's not the Google of United States
It's not Bieber or LeBron, Clinton or Bond
or anyone you love to hate
