Friday at midnight, 80s pop queen Madonna dropped a new song and announced her new album, Rebel Heart. The album leaked earlier this week, and Madonna is responding by releasing six tracks from it on iTunes. Those include the lead single, "Bitch I'm Madonna," which is also being made available for free streaming.

"I was hoping to release my new single ‘Living for Love' on Valentine's Day with the rest of the album coming in the spring," Madonna said in a statement. "I would prefer my fans to hear completed versions of some of the songs instead of the incomplete tracks that are circulating. Please consider these six songs as an early Christmas gift."

The entire album will be released on February 9th. It features production by Kanye West, Diplo, and Billboard, which you can really hear in the backing, thumping rhythms of "Bitch I'm Madonna" featuring some great rhymes by Nicki Minaj.
