2 New Madonna Demos

"The Beat Goes On"
A few days ago, a demo/early version of a new song from the Material Girl herself surfaced on the internet. This is the second such clip to surfaced from her still untitled, forthcoming Hip Hop/R&B/Dance project. This is one of several tracks that she worked on with Pharrell Williams. It is not nearly as Urban-oriented as some thought she may go. It is more like Rhythmic-Pop. One cannot help but think of Nelly Furtado and Justin Timberlake's recent albums. Not a bad thing at all as those albums were greatly appreciated by fans and music critics alike. Fans of the more Dance-oriented Madonna shouldn't be alarmed as this one is pretty Dancey. And she didn't rap on this one. Madonna's voice is in great form and takes center stage throughout the song. Pharrell can be heard on this track too. The lyrics are very fun, albeit a tad clich├ęd, but they're nice. There is still no word on whether this is going to be a single or even make the final tracklisting of the album. But it must be said, this is a great indicator of things to come.

Grade: A

"Candy Shop"
Also done with Pharrell, this is an infectious little treat. She sings about her candy shop of love with all sorts of goodies. And she begs you to "get up on the dancefloor." The lyrics may call to mind some of the recent candy-themed songs by Christina Aguilera, 50 Cent, Mika, Gwen Stefani and Melanie C. This is simply not jumping on the bandwagon. The song is cute and fun. While this too may or may not be on the album, this one is quite tasty too.

Grade: A
