Madonna has Beyoncéd us, releases half an album without announcement!

Okay, so yesterday we were hanging out with a bunch of friends talking pop music and we mentioned that we believe that the leaked album drama Madonna was going through sounds, to us, like a ploy for her to follow suit in Beyoncé’s footsteps by releasing the album all of the sudden, in order to garner better sales.

This morning, we wake up to just that… well, half of that. Madonna’s album, which is neither titled Unapologetic Bitch nor Iconic, but Rebel Heart, has been released not in full. It is available now on iTunes as a pre-order, but not in the traditional sense. If you pre-order the album, you get 6 of the tracks now!

Download 6 Tracks from Rebel Heart now! 

Here is one of the tracks from the album, titled “Living For Love.”

Update: The album appeared and now is nowhere to be found, despite an announcement by Madonna herself on Twitter and Instagram. Check here later for the download link. Madonna is probably killing all of her team right now because the link disappeared. 

Mariah Carey’s hand gesturing during singing actually means something…

Wow. This is really interesting, fellow lambily. All these time hates have been making fun of these gestures, and know we know how this great mind of music works, somewhat. “Sam Brenner, an interactive developer and grad student at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program, explored how accurately the position of Mariah Carey’s hand during live performance reflects the pitch of the note she is singing. He hypothesized that Mariah’s hand is not a perfect representation of the pitch but will produce a melody that is recognizable as the original song.”

Here comes the last compilation of 2014. And one that will be unlike any other, or something like that. What started out as a Soul and R&B compilation, ended up being a mix of everything. We decided against making it genre-specific, because want to have something for everybody. Keep that in mind though as you check out the sequence of this rockin’ compilation! As usual, give us your feedback for us to hone our future offerings in accordance to your tastes.

Th artwork is created by the lovely Riham Al-Reshaid. Check her out!

IMPORTANT: There is a possibility that we might stop putting up our compilations on the blog from now on. In order to keep getting the music, please join this little group: Nasser’s Mix Galore for future updates!
