Working on her 12th studio album, supposedly due out next year, the queen of mom-pop -- Madonna, if you're old school -- is reportedly in the studio working with some of the newest know chart toppers.
One of the few confirmed producers on the new venture is indie-rock producer Brendon O’Brien, who’s previous creds include hits for Bruce Springsteen and Pearl Jam. And now, with news that A-Trak (one of the world's most prolific electro-rap DJ's) is said to be producing some of the album, it sounds like this new incarnation of Madonna will be a blend of rock anthems, legit rap and funky club beats. Or in other words: pure brilliance.
And according to many Madonna fan-sites, David Guetta is also said to be vying for his shot to work with Madge, saying he is "already working on some tryouts to shift Madonna."
With all this talent filling up one CD, it looks like one very toned 50-something is making sure she doesn't end up as the Whitney or Mariah of 2010.
