Madonna's Back On The Charts — Deal With It

Christmas is coming a little bit early for one Madonna Louise Veronica Ciccone. This weekend, the pop legend released six new tracks to fans who had pre-ordered her upcoming album, Rebel Heart. That "little Christmas gift" has paid off — she's now #1 on the charts in 36 countries. Would you expect anything less from Madge?
The album itself won't be released until March. Until then, fans can go ahead and download the tracks "Living For Love," "Devil Pray," "Ghosttown," "Unapologetic Bitch," "Illuminati," and "Bitch I'm Madonna." (Nicki Minaj appears on that last one, and, you have to admit, the title is kind of catchy.)
Funnily enough, we may have North Korean hackers to thank for the sneak preview. Madonna released the songs after becoming furious at the leaks at Sony. Way to beat the bad guys to the punch. Making the likes of Miley, Ariana, and Taylor quake in their boots at the same time? That's just the icing on the cake.
You can listen to "Living For Love" below. More than that, and you'll have to buy something on iTunes, you little cheapskate.
