Madonna's 13th studio album with 2015's Rebel Heart. Co-writing and co-producing it with various musicians, including Diplo, Avicii, and Kanye West, along with guest features from boxer Mike Tyson and rappers Nicki Minaj, Nas and Chance the Rapper. Musically, it is a pop record which merges an array of genres such as 1990s house, trap, and reggae, while using acoustic guitars and a gospel choir. The album predominantly positive reviews from music critics; multiple reviewers called it Madonna's best effort in a decade.

4 Singles were released overall, (also decided to include 'Devil Pray') but which is your fave?

Simply rank the singles from best to worst:

Living For Love
Ghosttown
Bitch I'm Madonna (ft Nicki Minaj)

*Devil Pray

The didn't get the singles right here, mainly because of the choice of lead and Bitch!

Ghosttown
Hold Tight
Devil Pray
Living For Love
Bitch Iím Madonna

I adore 'Hold Tight' and 'Devil Pray' is a great listen. 'Living For Love' is safe enough but I can't say I return to it much at all. The less said about the last place, the better ~

Those have got to be some of her worst artworks ever.
Considering the album cover is actually quite strong, those are all shocking (except the Hold Tight one, which I guess is ok?)

They're all pretty bad I agree. Ghosttown could have been good but the composition just isn't quite right.

Singles wise...

01 Ghosttown
02 Devil Pray
03 Hold Tight


04 Living For Love















05 Bitch I'm Madonna

I hate the artwork too, the 'Bitch I'm Madonna' one really was taking the piss. Odd because the album art is really good, as Cremey noted.

I know single artwork isn't as important nowadays but at the very least you could use other photos from the album shoot i.e. something professionally shot!!

My rank:

1) Ghosttown
2) Devil Pray
3) Living For Love
4) Hold Tight
5) Bitch I'm Madonna (ft Nicki Minaj)

Very easy. 'Ghosttown' is one of my favourites, not just of the last decade either. It would have been such a strong lead single, especially with those promo spots. 'Living for Love' is fine but it's kinda retreading old ground and the over-production on the vocals bothers me more as time goes on.

'Devil Pray' should have been a fully-pushed single - it's got just the right amount of modern influence, right amount of controversy and seems to blend the two themes of the album rather than just be one or the other.

'Bitch I'm Madonna' is like Stockholm syndrome in song form.

10 Ghostown - up there with some of her very best and easily the best song post COADF
08 Devil Pray
07 Hold Tight
06 Living For Love
00 Bitch I'm Madonna - just wrong on every single level

Rebel Heart (the title track) should definitely have been a single - the album version is a bit weak compared to the amazing demo, but it felt like a nice combination of current pop sounds and the classic Madonna sound (as well as epitomising the cloying desperation and consumate nonchalance curiously wrapped up in the album).
