In perhaps the ultimate wig snatch attempt, Madonna next studio album will reportedly be released on the same label as Pop rival Lady GaGa.
Full story below…
According to the ever-reliable Madonna Tribe, the follow-up to 2008’s ‘Hard Candy’ will arrive on Interscope within the early half of next year.
The Jimmy Iovine helmed label, which has been the longtime home of the paw purveyor, will apparently serve as the distributor and prime promotion driver for the project.
As many know, the 52 year old left Warner Music and signed a blockbuster deal with tour promoter Live Nation back in 2007 (to the tune of $120 million). The partnership sees all her recording and touring interests (post ‘Hard Candy’) looked after by Nation, with a potentially different record label attached to each new album released. Needless to say, then, it’s quite the coup for Interscope to be the first to team up with the Queen of Pop for this non-traditional, yet fascinating new model
However we, here at That Grape Juice, can’t but wonder how this will implicate the label’s breadwinner, Lady GaGa (if it will at all). For, even the most successful of labels, are often ill-equipped to handle two megastars on the same roster (see: Def Jam does Janet & Mariah circa 2008).
Whatever the case, all signs point to new Madonna material being around the corner. As such, we’ve not long to see how this’ll all play out!
