Madonna has released today another minute-long clip of a new song from her forthcoming album M.D.N.A. Today we get to preview her song Best Friend. The song has a drum & bass-y beat that I really like … yet, doesn’t seem to mesh well with the lyrics. In this song, Madonna is sining to an ex-lover who she laments was her best friend. Is she singing, once again, to ex-husband Guy Ritchie? Or maybe Jesus Luz, maybe? HMMM. Click below and listen for yourselves.
As I said, I love the music of of this song … sans lyrics, it sounds like a fantastic club song. The story she tells with the lyrics changes the tone of the song, I think. Obvs, we don’t know who she is singing about in this song (if she is singing about anyone at all) but it sounds like she is singing to one of her exes … but who? I dig the song overall, even if the lyrics don’t jibe with the music. What do y’all think?
