Madonna has released a new preview clip of one of the songs on her upcoming new album M.D.N.A. which is due to hit stores on March 26. Today we get to hear a little over a minute of her song I Don’t Give A. While many of Madonna’s other songs on M.D.N.A. might have differing meanings, the lyrics of I Don’t Give A make it plainly obvious that the song was inspired by and is meant for Maddy’s ex husband Guy Ritchie. Take a listen below and get your first taste of I Don’t Give A.
At first, the song’s syncopation reminded me a bit of Madonna’s song American Life (I’m drinkin’ a soy latte / I get a double shotte) but then the song gives way to a more melodic vibe. The lyrics, I tried to be a your wife / Diminished myself / And I swallowed my light, make it very clear that Madonna is singing to her ex husband (who she seems to resent … a lot). I don’t know that this song will make a good single, per se, but I’m sure the catharsis was positive for our dear Madge. I understand we will get more preview snippets thruout the weekend so … stay tuned. As for I Don’t Give A … what do y’all think? Do you like it? Do you give a F?
