Madonna's New Album Is Sexy, Bold and Loveable! #RebelHeart #O2O #music
I grew up in the 80's so Madonna was a big part of my childhood. I wore the lace gloves, and bangle bracelets, I knew I was cool. Our relationship started with her Like a Virgin, I matured through True Blue, and survived the controversy of Like a Prayer. As Madonna pushed the limits with Erotica, I discovered that it was okay, as a young woman, to embrace my own sexuality. Madonna's music was a key part of me becoming me.
As she evolved, so did I, but somewhere along the line, we evolved into completely different people. Our relationship that was once constant was now only a passing hello. Some of her singles would catch my attention over the years, but it was like a long marriage that had lost its spark. I still had a lot of respect and love for her as an artist, but the albums just didn't connect with me. So, when I found out Rebel Heart was being released, I just didn't have much hope for it.
Then, I received a copy for review, and I was blown away. Rebel Heart is like taking all those old albums I loved so much and rolling them all up into one great, strong, witty and sexy album. This is the Madonna I fell in love with!
I do have to warn that the album has explicit lyrics so that may turn some people off, but it's not entitled Rebel Heart because she conforms. I actually find that many of the songs with explicit language are some of my favorites such as "Unapologetic Bitch" with it's hip hop vibe and catchy lyrics, and "Bitch I'm Madonna" which is just such a big statement.
"Holy Water" and "S.E.X" remind me of the Erotica album but with a fresh new sound.
There is not a song on this album that I don't like. I can dance to some, chill to some, and love them all. It has so many levels which explains why Madonna said, “Rebel Heart explores two very distinct sides of my personality, the rebellious renegade side of me and the romantic side of me”
Rebel Heart has has renewed my love of Madonna!
Rebel Heart is available on iTunes
I participated in the Madonna Rebel Heart album review program as a member of One2One Network. I was provided an album to review but all opinions are my own.
