[article id="1653912"]Britney Spears[/article], [article id="1653302"]Lady Gaga[/article] and [article id="1652928"]Beyoncé[/article] may be readying new material, but there's another woman in the pop-star hierarchy that's itching for a comeback: [artist id="1098"]Madonna[/artist].
After a year that included a collaborative clothing line with her daughter, Lourdes, and directing a new film, the Queen of Pop is looking to head back into the studio to make some dance tunes.
In a message posted on her Facebook page early Friday morning (December 17), the singer wrote, "Its official! I need to move. I need to sweat. I need to make new music! Music I can dance to. I'm on the lookout for the maddest, sickest, most bad ass people to collaborate with. I'm just saying ..."
This isn't the first time the 51-year-old pop star has opened up about working on the follow-up to 2008's Hard Candy. When BBC's Radio 1 caught up with her a few weeks ago, Madonna spoke about what she has up her sleeve in the near future, saying, "I have a movie I have to finish. I have a new record I have to make. I have more gyms to open."
While the singer admitted she hasn't done any recording for the project, she did reveal that she's planning to collaborate with other artists for the LP. However, it may be awhile before fans find out about her collaborations: For now, she's keeping them secret.
Despite not hearing any new tunes from Madonna, America got a good dose of her classics earlier this year when "Glee" dedicated an entire episode to the star. And, as the hit Fox show's seven-track [article id="1637976"]The Power of Madonna EP[/article] topped the Billboard albums chart, it was evident that fans cherish her music.
Who do you think Madonna should collaborate with on her next album? Sound off below!
