New Madonna / Justin Timberlake Collaboration - Candy Shop

This is reportedly a (low quality) clip of the bridge in a new track entitled "Candy Shop" which Madonna has been working on with Justin Timberlake, and possibly Pharrell:

Get up out of your seat (your seat)
Come on up to the dance floor
Ive got something so sweet (so sweet)
Come on up to the front door
I need plenty of heat (heat)
Form a special confection
Just start moving your feet (your feet)
Move on over to me

  4. You know when you're trying to sleep, but there's a mosquito whine really close to your ear....

    Well, that's this.

  5. First of all if this is going to be the first single released of her new album, which by the way won't be out until late November, this is probably a demo. There is still time for the finishing touches to be added to this track, but this HAS to be a demo. Which reminds me, wasn't 'Music' leaked when it was still a demo and everyone initially thought it sounded like crap, well we all know what happened when the real version of 'Music' was released.

  6. One more thing, the audio quality on this track is so bad you can't really listen to it without hearing bits of static and interference.

  7. The crappy (and piercing) quality of the recording aside, I smell a big hit. The vocals are so hooky they're way over in earworm territory. And the real selling point, the percussion, is fantastic.

  9. I believe it's Timbaland, not Pharrell.

    The tribal beat is great, the treacly lyrics not so much.

  10. Sorry got to make one more comment which is actually a correction. The supposed release date of her new and yet untitled album is either late November or early 2008

  11. Judging by Madonna's last two albums, at least you won't have to hear this dribble on the radio. And thank God for that!

  12. Hmmmm , them cheesy dance lyrics have been sung before way too many times...sigh, so original.

  13. I, for one, think it sounds totally authentic. Vintage Madonna. It has that AM radio sound she's so great at.

  14. Gee. Special lyrics...

  15. People hate Madonna when she's too deep (pretentious!) and hate her when she's too shallow (unoriginal!). I like her both ways if the song works. It's so hard to judge much from this, but it sounds authentic and Alex is dead-on when he points out how crappy "Music"'s leaked snippet sounded back in the day. This sounds Bee Gees-ish and it would not be at all surprising if the finished product ended up as another "Hung Up"-esque global hit, but with some major USA airplay thrown in to sweeten the candy store.

  16. This is from Wikipedia, so take it with a hefty dose of salt. Even if it's not true, I find it amusing...

    "According to Timbaland the current title of the album is 'Blackstar.' Timbaland has declared that he teased her a lot about this title saying that she will never be black. Madonna answered him that she was already doing black music when he was wearing diapers!"

    Posted by: chrisb | Jul 26, 2007 5:35:15 PM

  17. Okay, since I'm pro-Madonna, I'll bite and make the anti-Madonna joke re Wiki: And Timbaland replied, "Now I'm making black music and YOU'RE wearing diapers."

  18. I don't know... IMO Madonna has not put out any good music since Ray of Light. I used to be one of her biggest fans, but this stuff is getting old.. It sounds so one dimensional.. She should broaden her music like Cindy Lauper or Annie Lennox.

  19. Isn't Madonna a little long in the tooth to be singing about candy shops?

    Posted by: Frank L | Jul 26, 2007 6:37:17 PM

  20. Shouldn't even demo's have better sound quality than this?
    Most kids recording in their parents garage or basement produce things with better quality than this. Was someone hiding in the air duct during the recording and capturing this on their cell phone?
    Still, it'll probably be a hit.

  21. Listen bitches!
    It'll rock your world when it's released, so just hold on to your knickers !

    geesh !

  22. madonna sounds great as always, but I despise Justin femberlake and hate that she is working with that cunt.

    Posted by: Terry | Jul 26, 2007 7:48:31 PM

  23. WAKE THE FUCK UP QUEENS -- this clearly was not meant to be heard yet in its current form. If anything, it's a very poor recording, perhaps secretly recorded via cellphone, of a DEMO.

    And NO she's not singing "about a Candy Shop" you IDIOTS. It's about sex, like so much of her music & like most pop music.

  24. Matt is spot on: her critics, which sound like jealous thirteen year olds trying to put down the smartest girl in the class at any cost, moaned when she was trying to be too deep and now moan when she's trying to be shallow. Who cares about her age? Why is it always an issue? I moaned at the lyrics too on paper, but from the snippet I heard, it was surprisingly enjoyable.

  25. Luvs it but who listens to Madonna for the lyrics - she's more of an over all experience - no?
