Madonna, 'Rebel Heart' (March 10th)
The best-laid plans of Madge and men often go awry. After hackers leaked numerous songs from Madonna's upcoming album, Rebel Heart, the singer parried the blow by releasing six of the tracks to iTunes and hitting Number One on the digital music service's charts. Kanye West, Avicii, Alicia Keys and Rolling Stone cover star Nicki Minaj are all confirmed to appear on the eclectic LP. "You know when you meet somebody and you work with them and you recognize that you both look at life the same way?" Madonna said regarding another collaborator, EDM star Diplo. "[It was] playing each other music that we loved and just recognizing we both enjoyed a lot of the same things, and then just getting to work." J.N.
