I’ve been thinking, since IGTTYAS has been removed from iTunes Stores, could it be that Warner is planning a remastered release just like the Vogue and Human Nature singles?

I don’t think either of those singles are remastered, are they?

I mean the documentary of IGTTYAS could get remastered like they took an interest in adding those singles to streaming platforms. There’s no good reason why IGTTYAS would get removed like this...

Maybe she’s just having her own wilderness years a bit like Prince. I know she’s still present but maybe a new deal will breathe some new life in to her.

As a fan I’ve enjoyed many things about the last three records. Rebel Heart & Madame X are great. MDNA has some great songs and concepts but the execution is poor as fuck and the way they land with the GP is off the mark. She lost the ability to read the mood. 
 

She just needs to meld the qualities of the projects. The Ambition of Rebel Heart, the creativity of Madame X and the quality and songwriting of some time ago. 
It’s the melodies and vocal treatment that are missing. Once that’s fixed we’ll be back on track. 

MadameX should have been one of her masterpieces. It has all the elements, yet it didn't come together as cohesive as it should have.

As opposed to the MDNA era or the Rebel Heart era? 

Madame X was a huge step forward artistically for M imo.

I can only speak for myself on the MDNA and RHT eras, and my experiences from how I enjoyed each album to how each tour makes me feel when I see them. I enjoyed RHT much more than MDNAT, and have an equal like/love of each album, including MX. 
As a man in my mid-40’s the Madame X era was exciting, referential in the right ways, and conceptually great. But the whole method-actor 007 schtick irritated me. The rollout was better than I thought at the time, I just feel that Interscope really had no idea how to market M’s music, especially RH. There’s no excuse for the gimmickry of the 3 editions and drastically different covers that only a fan would know the difference, all on the same day? I still can’t figure out how they released 3 versions of the same track list, w/ different cover art, yet they would NOT release a “Rebel” album, a “Heart” album, then a 2 disc “Rebel Heart” album with the definitive tracklist we know. She either didn’t utilize the A&R and marketing departments at Interscope,  or they had no idea that Madonna came from an entire career of having all of those behind the scenes elements in-house and delegated for her. As much as it would make sense to just create and present her work independently, I can also see her enjoying driving the well oiled machine that a label line Warner could offer her.  
As histrionic as this reads, Interscope just seemed like they manhandled M from the get-go. But maybe they weren’t obligated to do more, so the cold-shoulder approach to marketing may just be me assuming they owed her more.

Is the day of today I am not able to recall what's exactly on RH. For me It's such a confusion of an album. And I love lots of tracks from it but I don't know exactly which ones meant to make the album.

I’m so envious of Mariah Carey fans right now.

The MC30 campaign is flawless.

Each week all the maxis singles for an album are released including lost mixes and live versions, a live album of her first promo launch. That’s four eras of EP’s so far with the Butterfly Era remixes coming this Friday and she’s also just announced a 2CD rarities album which is set to put b sides, demo versions, unreleased and Scarce tracks on disc one and her first live album on disc 2.

That’s a way to treat your legacy 😉

She also posted a preview where you see a vault opening and a clip of an unreleased music video ! Fans went crazy ! It' like all of a sudden Madonna posts a never seen music video for Impressive Instant !

Madonna please open your vaults for us!

Kind of anticlimactic when she does it considering how much stuff Lederman already stole from there. That's one thing we don't often discuss, the fact that Madonna is the most leaked artist ever, from demos and stems to photoshoots and video. Maybe part of her reasons not to revisit her past is the fact that it's been so pillaged by fans already.

I think it's just a mistake or maybe the rights for that particular live album expired. Or maybe it was a one-off contract with Warner for a number of years, I don't know. It was her first live album so maybe it wasn't planned at first and they did something different for it to be able to release it and capitalize on "Confessions" success and the 2006 tour.

No they're not and better that way, to be honest. Just the original audio, no boosting or pseudo-remastering!

It’s definitely great to see but I’ve also learned that she only appears on websites for Warner Music as opposed to Warner Records, and the reason she’s on that website is most likely due to her being under the Rhino Records umbrella.

If she signs to Warner Records then they’ll probably launch a huge press release the second she puts pen to paper.

With what songs? None were hits, but if any song: Give Me All Your Luvin, Girl Gone Wild, Bitch I’m Madonna, Living For Love, Medellin & I Rise?

I wouldn't mind a B - Sides collections from American Life through the Interscope Era.  it would be something new and different and wouldn't need to be actual Hits. 

 I already made a tracklist/Playlist.

 

B Side Hits

 

NEW SONG

Future Lovers

I Don’t Search I Find

Candy Shop (Rebel Heart Tour Mix)

Best Night

A rarities album like Mariah Is doing would be cool, but I wondered how many unheard songs does Madonna have? I always had the idea that except for Rebel Heart she didn’t record a lot of extra tracks. I thought I read that somewhere but I could be wrong.
