I got invited by MCA Music to cover Madonna’s newest Album MDNA @ SM Megamall Covered Walkway A at the stairway near the new Bus terminal last Monday March 26, 2012. The 53-year-old ‘Queen of Pop’ returns to the spotlight with her latest album “MDNA”.
“MDNA” is the twelfth studio album by American recording artist Madonna.
Madonna lost none of her ability to push boundaries. Uptempo record “MDNA” sees Madonna continue her love affair with dance music in an album dedicated to club-friendly tracks.
The pop icon has explained in a yahoo article that the meaning of her album is actually
“threefold”—a reduction of her name, an abbreviation for “Madonna DNA,”
and a “reference to ecstasy” and the “euphoria” often experienced by its
The first single from the album, “Give Me All Your Luvin'” was released on February 3, 2012. The single peaked at number 10 on the Billboard Hot 100, extending her record as the artist with most top-ten singles in that chart’s history. The second single “Girl Gone Wild” was released digitally on March 2, 2012.
UP Pep Squad- the reigning University Athletic Association of the Philippines
(UAAP) Cheerdance Competition champions performed a flash mob (a
performance of a group of people in a public place) at Sm Megamall,
following the worldwide release of Madonna’s 12th studio album “MDNA.”
The UP Pep Squad created a spectacle for the curious crowd, the team of
Juan and Juana grooved, performed stunts and assembled pyramids to
Madonna’s latest tunes.
The album’s first single, “Give Me All Your Luvin’” featuring Nicki
Minaj & M.I.A, claimed the top spot on the Billboard’s most popular
songs played in dance clubs chart for the week ending March 31.
“It’s amazing to be back in music. I like the intimacy of a recording
studio and songwriting. I’m using a different part of my brain when I
work on music versus when I’m directing a film. There are a billion more
people on a film and I don’t have that visceral outlet of being able to
sing, scream… jump around. It’s very different. I love doing both but
it was nice to have the simplicity of songwriting after three years of
writing a script and directing and editing and talking about my film, to
sit down and play my guitar and sing a song. I almost cried.”
