31 August - Arianne Phillips to work with Madonna again
Costume designer/stylist and longtime Madonna collaborator Arianne Phillips gave an interview for the Santa Cruz Sentinel and the article says Arianne is going to work with Madonna on her next album. That's all the info we got now in these slow news weeks. Previously, Arianne worked with Madonna on her last 3 world tours.


29 August - Madonna to adopt another Malawian baby?
Madonna has been given the green light to adopt a second orphan from Malawi — a 13-month-old girl called Mercy.
She's been told she can take the "smiling angel" as a sister to David Banda, her first child from the African nation.
It follows months of legal wrangling over the adoption of 22-month-old David.
And to ensure all goes smoothly this time, Madge, 49, has told her lawyer in Malawi, Alan Chinula, to "cover all legal bases" before she collects Mercy next April.

Madge insisted she wanted to adopt a sister for David "to redress the balance". Officials asked her to view up to TEN girls before deciding.
She saw Mercy, Grace, Jessica and Fanizio last October at the Kondanani Orphan Care Centre at Blantyre.
She "had her heart" set on Grace, but the tot's extended family objected. Madge has been back several times since and was said to be "thrilled" to be told she can take Mercy.

She will file papers in February, a month after David's adoption is finalised.
A close family source said yesterday: "Madonna's over the moon that she's been told she can take Mercy. She didn't want another complicated adoption."
The source added: "Mercy is a beautiful baby girl. She's so joyful and happy and giggles every time she's picked up. Madonna just loves the way she claps her hands and laughs constantly. She has huge, dancing eyes. Madonna calls her her smiling angel."

Mercy has some family, including an aunt, but they were too poor to keep her, so left her at the orphanage.
She is healthy, unlike David who was desperately ill after arriving in England.
His adoption sparked controversy after it emerged his father, Yohane, was still alive.
Pals said Madonna has suffered torments during the complicated adoption process.
She "despaired" after a home visit to her £5.7million London pad was suddenly scrapped last month.

The singer and film director husband Guy Ritchie, 39, had expected a top official to turn up to assess if they were suitable parents.
A spokeswoman for Madonna, who has a daughter, Lourdes, ten, and son, Rocco, seven, declined to comment about Mercy. (source: The Sun)


28 August - Something to remember: They made it through the wilderness
Four years ago today, Madonna gave one of her most special live performances ever. She opened the VMAs, which was actually not unusual from her, she did that a few times already before. But this time, she wasn't alone. The 20th annual award show started with a homage to a performance from the very first VMAs, where Madonna had arrived with the infamous Like A Virgin rendition in a wedding dress.

Madonna at the VMA 2003In 2003 it was recreated by none others than Britney Spears & Christina Aguilera. After the girls in wedding dresses sang the first verse and the chorus of the song, Madonna as the groom arrived and started singing her then-current single Hollywood (Jacques Lu Cont Mix) with the girls doing backup. Then, as probably everyone knows, Madonna kissed both Britney and Christina on the mouth, causing a huge uproar in the press for weeks. It is notable to mention that after Madonna kissed Britney, the cameras all showed a shocked Justin Timberlake - he surely didn't expect working with Madonna four years later during that very moment!

Missy Elliott joined the trio for a rap and then they finished the segment with the line "Music stations always play the same songs, we're bored with the concept of right and wrong!". This medley is widely regarded as the last "big" performance of the VMAs. Madonna hasn't performed there since then, but next year it's gonna be the milestone 25th VMA...

(The Mad-Eyes team would also like to remember another anniversary: 1 year ago today, for the first time together, the team saw Madonna performing on the Confessions Tour in Paris. Mad-Eyes shine for eternity! ;-)


27 August - Malawian official to assess Madonna over adoption
A Malawian court-appointed official said on Monday he will visit Madonna and her husband in early September to access whether they would be suitable parents for the child they are seeking to adopt.
"There has been a change of mind by my government minister and she has allowed me to leave for the UK on September 4 and I am expected to spend two weeks," Penstone Kilembe, who had been refused permission to travel to Britain, told Reuters.

Madonna and her husband Guy Ritchie's attempts to adopt David Banda hit a snag earlier this month when the Malawian minister of women and child development refused to grant Kilembe permission to travel to Britain to access their suitability.
Minister Kate Kainja told a Malawian weekly "we feel Mr. Kilembe personalized the whole issue" and other people could go.

A Malawi newspaper reported earlier this month Kilembe was prevented from traveling to Britain because he had accepted a plane ticket and money from Madonna without government approval.
Kilembe dismissed the suggestions he asked the pop star for a ticket.

The High Court of Malawi appointed Kilembe to travel to Britain twice and was to have relied on his testimony in ruling whether Madonna should adopt the child in a hearing next year.
Madonna took David Banda from Malawi last October when he was 13 months old after his father Yohane Banda had placed him in an orphanage following the death of his wife. (source: Reuters)


25 August - Madonna choreographer enlisted by Britney for VMA
Britney Spears was seen together with choreographer RJ Durrell, who is believed to create a memorable performance for singer with comeback-ambitions for the VMAs. He's responsible for the choreography of the fan-favourite Erotica performance on the Confessions Tour (click here to watch a short interview with him about his work with Madonna). Britney has not appeared on the annual VMAs ever since the infamous opening performance with Madonna herself in 2003.

Funny thing is that Britney is strongly rumoured to open the show, while some weeks ago event-maestro Timbaland was shocked at the possibility of that. Maybe both Britney's and Madonna's appearances (which is still rumoured) are meant to be surprises? We shall see on September 9th, and even if Madonna won't be there, her most recent collaborators Timbaland and Justin Timberlake are expected to bring the house down.


25 August - Talk of Live Nation/Madonna deal causing a commotion
If Live Nation is able to pull off a multifaceted deal with Madonna, one that would include a label component as well as the singer's lucrative touring and merchandising business, it would be the most ambitious undertaking yet under Live Nation CEO Michael Rapino's watch.

Speculation is rampant that Madonna is considering leaving Warner Bros. once her contract obligations are complete. Arthur Fogel, president of TNA International and chairman of Live Nation's global touring division, produced Madonna's last three world tours and is likely at the forefront of any negotiations between Madonna and Live Nation.
One source estimates the value of the Live Nation offer to be $180 million for a 10-year deal, with the touring giant potentially licensing the recording rights for roughly $30 million.

It is believed that Madonna has two more albums due on her contract with Warners. An album of new material is expected in late 2007, to be followed by a greatest hits project.
Sources say Warners has made a counteroffer to Madonna that also includes a touring component that could be helmed by rival promoter AEG Live. (source: Reuters)


25 August - New children's books available for pre-order
Amazon has listed four sequels of 'The English Roses' children's book, to be released on September 6th, 2007. The titles are: Friends for Life! - Good-Bye Grace? - The New Girl - A Rose By Any Other Name.


24 August - Madonna's deal with Warner Brothers nears completion
Madonna is considering a number of possible destinations for her future music career as her deal with Warner Brothers nears completion, it has been confirmed.
The Queen of Pop has been the subject of many industry rumours in recent weeks, suggesting she might be about to ink a new multi-million dollar deal.

The news has accompanied reports that she will release her new album later this year and another greatest hits compilation too.
Her official spokesperson has now clarified the rumours, stating Madonna will become "a free agent" in the near future.

She explained: "Madonna has a new CD coming out on Warner Brothers Records at the end of this year [or] early next year. She also has a greatest hits package on Warner.
"After that she is a free agent and I believe her managers are in talks with Warner Brothers as well as Live Nation regarding her future as a recording and touring artist."

Madonna is understood to have been working on the follow-up to Confessions On A Dance Floor for some months, with Timbaland and Justin Timberlake. (source: Dotmusic via Yahoo)

~ Even though Warner still hasn't confirmed anything, we are now treating both the new album and the upcoming greatest hits package as definitive projects. Earlier today we posted the release schedule of Warner, and after much speculation by fans, the "to be determined" double CD might be the new studio album itself, also released as a limited edition with a DVD, while "Best Of Remixes" being the "greatest hits package". It might be a real double disc release with around 20 new songs, or the second disc would contain the same tracks but in remixed versions. It's sad that fans have to decipher Warner's plans like that, but if the October date is true (for any of the releases) we should expect an announcement very soon.


24 August - Madonna to celebrate Rosh Hashana in Israel
Madonna in Israel (September 2004)Pop star Madonna is coming back to Israel, and this time she's bringing her celebrity friends.
Actors Demi Moore, Ashton Kutcher and fashion designer Donna Karan are among the famous faces scheduled to arrive as part of a Kabbalah Center tour being organized for the High Holidays, representatives of the organization confirmed Thursday. The trip was first reported in Yediot Aharonot.

The singer, who celebrated her 49th birthday last week, will travel on a private jet, joining several thousand other Kabbalah Center students for the first few days of the pilgrimage, a 10-day affair that kicks off before Rosh Hashana [September 13th] and will mix lessons in Jewish mysticism with visits to Jerusalem, the Galilee and the Golan Heights.

The trip marks Madonna's first appearance in Israel since September 2004, when the singer spent five days traveling the country as part of a private Kabbalah Center tour and study program.

As with her previous trip to Israel - the singer also performed a 1993 concert in Tel Aviv - Madonna will be joined by her husband, the English filmmaker Guy Ritchie.
In addition to the couple's three children, who include a baby boy the pair adopted in Malawi last October, the singer will be accompanied byHollywood friends Moore and Kutcher, married Kabbalah Center enthusiasts who may also bring along Moore's ex-husband, the action star Bruce Willis.

Madonna in Israel (September 2004)For Karan, the trip marks the clothing mogul's second visit to the Jewish state this year, and comes four months after her in-person acceptance of an honorary fellowship at Tel Aviv's Shenkar College of Engineering and Design.
Israel's A-list holiday visitors will be joined on their trip by 3,000 Kabbalah Center students from around the world, who in contrast to their celebrity counterparts will arrive at Ben-Gurion Airport via regularly scheduled El Al flights.

Unlike other participants, Madonna is not expected to stay for the entirety of the program, though "maybe she'll be back here for the end, for Yom Kippur [September 22nd]," said Asaf Levi, a Kabbalah Center spokesman.
Madonna's return visit represents the continued closeness of her nearly decade-long relationship with the Kabbalah Center, which first became public knowledge around the release of Ray of Light, the singer's spiritually-themed 1998 techno album.

Madonna in Israel (September 2004)Criticisms that the center has commercialized an ancient form of Jewish mysticism - its Web site sells $26 packages of red string to ward off "the Evil Eye" - haven't prevented the pop star's successful recruitment of her celebrity friends and acolytes, who include Paris Hilton, Britney Spears and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Among those accompanying the singer on next month's visit, Moore is "known to have waxed Kabbalistic" on the set of 2003's Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle, according to an article published the following year in USA Today.

Levi declined to say whether more entertainers may join the upcoming trip, remarking that the issue "isn't closed, so I don't want to give any comments at this time."
The spokesman said Israel's press would be asked to keep its distance from the visiting celebrities, a request prompted by the national media's aggressive pursuit of Madonna on her last trip to the country, when she was heavily guarded by private security and a police escort. "We've talked about [those problems] and we hope it will be different," Levi said, adding that he couldn't be more specific about security precautions being taken this time around.

Madonna and her celebrity friends won't perform for the public, Levi said, though he held out the possibility that the singer would meet with Tourism Ministry or other government officials during her stay. The singer accepted a small gift from then-tourism minister Gideon Ezra during anofficial reception on her most recent visit, telling audience members that she and those she met on her trip "have one thing in common - we want to create peace in the world."

Madonna in Israel (September 2004)Should Madonna and her fellow stars end up meeting government officials during their stay, it won't be their first brush with the country's leadership. In a 2005 interview for Israeli television, Willis - still unconfirmed for the trip - expressed admiration for then-prime minister Ariel Sharon, with the Die Hard star commenting that he'd been impressed by the toughness of the veteran politician and army commander.

Kutcher, best known for his work on That '70s Show and MTV reality program Punk'd, had an even more direct encounter with the Israeli government last October, meeting with Shimon Peres briefly in Berlin.
In town to promote his latest movie, the Dude, Where's My Car? star put in a hasty request for a meeting with Peres after learning that he, too, was in the German capital on business.
At their meeting, Peres fielded questions from Kutcher about Israel's security situation, with Kutcher ending the conversation with a pledge to visit Israel someday with his wife. (source: Jerusalem Post)


24 August - Warner release schedule updated
The release schedule of Warner has been updated, with these entries added (thanx to Madonnatribe):

TBS OCTOBER 2007
MADONNA "TBD" (2 CD) 2 289404 WB
MADONNA "TBD" (2 CD + MVI) 9 289468 WB
MADONNA Best Of Remixes 2 231356 WB

TBS means "to be specified"; "TBD" means "to be determined" and "MVI" stands for "Music Video Interactive" disc. This seems to be the greatest hits project Liz talked about, but it's weird that they want to release it before the new album. Hopefully Warner will finally announce the exact plans very soon!


24 August - Timberlake felt like a stalker around Madonna
Justin Timberlake struggled to keep his eyes off pop superstar Madonna when they collaborated for her upcoming album. The pair recorded a top secret duet, which has yet to be released, in London earlier this year (07) - and Timberlake admits he was unnerved around the music legend. He says, "It was amazing. I was just constantly staring at her. I became like the weird stalker in the corner." (source: Contactmusic)


23 August - New Madonna tracks being tested in clubs?
History repeats itself? According to fansite Drownedmadonna, a 6-track promo CD, containing The Beat Goes On is being played in NYC clubs to test reactions, without mentioning that they are Madonna songs. This strategy was already used 2 years ago, when Stuart Price tested the Confessions On A Dance Floor tracks. We wonder if this is an indication for The Beat Goes On becoming a single - which actually got polarized reactions among the Madonna fan community.


23 August - Justin denies VMA collaboration
Last night Justin Timberlake gave a short interview for Access Hollywood and denied the rumour about Madonna performing with him on the VMA. We won't give up hoping though! You can watch the interview @ Madonnadownload.


23 August - Madonna is top bad girl gone good
Madonna has topped a new list of bad girls gone good, beating off Drew Barrymore and Mary J. Blige. Editors at In Touch magazine in America have crowned the Material Girl as the ultimate reformed woman in their upcoming issue. They write, "Madonna is a devoted mom these days, but back in the '80s and '90s, she was every mother's worst nightmare! "Whether expressing herself in racy videos or posing nude for her Sex book, she was determined to shock." The top five is: 1. Madonna 2. Drew Barrymore 3. Mary J. Blige 4. Fergie 5. Christina Aguilera. (source: Contactmusic)


23 August - Is Justin Madonna's new MTV Boy-Toy?
Are the two really teaming up to perform together at MTV's Video Music Awards next month in Las Vegas?
An MTV rep just told me, "It's a fantastic rumor." Reps for Timberlake and Madonna did not comment.
Hmmm.
Here's what I'm hearing: There are no concrete plans—yet.

Producers, a source tells me, have spoken to J.T. about it. And the idea has been presented to Madonna. "She is interested," my source reports.
Madge should be interested. There's no one better at transforming herself into what people want right now than the original Material Girl. A hookup with the 26-year-old Timberlake could mean only one thing: more fans!
Four years ago, Madonna made international headlines by kissing Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera onstage at the VMAs.
Let's hope she creates the same magic on Sept. 9.
Hey, Justin, pucker up! (source: E!Online)


22 August - Liz denies NYC birthday gig & adoption problems
The following article from NY Daily News talks about some gossip regarding Madonna's fired gamekeeper which Liz Rosenberg did not comment, but the spokeswoman denied the speculated 50th birthday gig in NYC and the adoption problems that keep resurfacing in the media:

Madonna celebrating her 49th birthdayMadonna and hubby Guy Ritchie have been chillaxing at their 1,200-acre British estate. But one member of the staff isn't waiting for them to head back to London.
Gamekeeper Martin Taylor has quit after Ritchie broke his arm in a "play fight," according to Britain's Evening Standard.

Taylor and some local mates liked "to take the mickey out of Guy" by sparring with the judo-loving filmmaker, a source told the paper. But there was "simmering tension" after Taylor injured his arm and "Guy never apologized," the source added.
Taylor, who'd worked at the estate for five years, was already feeling hamstrung after Madonna ruled that shooting birds violated her kabbala beliefs. Madonna's rep, Liz Rosenberg, had no immediate comment on the alleged arm-breaking.

Rosenberg did deny a report that Madonna may celebrate her 50th birthday next August with a concert in Central Park. She also dismissed claims that officials in Malawi are trying to get Madonna to return her adopted child David Banda.
"Everything's going according to plan," said Rosenberg, adding that Her Madgesty is working on a documentary about her trip there, as well as collaborating with Justin Timberlake, Pharrell and Timbaland on her next album.
~ On the right you can see a picture of Madonna's 49th birthday, as reported last week.


22 August - VMA rumours getting stronger, new song leaks
The rumours of Madonna performing at this year's MTV Video Music Awards are getting stronger, she's rumoured to perform with none other than Justin Timberlake himself. The show set to be broadcast live from Las Vegas on September 9th. You can find a short clip of the rumour from Entertainment Tonight at Madonnadownload. Also, the track The Beat Goes On leaked in its entirety and it clearly marks a new era because it has a totally new sound from Madonna, with hot R&B beats and guitars, featuring Pharrell Williams and Madonna sporting her high and low vocals throughout the song.


21 August - Annie Lennox collaboration previewed
Last night Annie Lennox gave an interview to BBC Radio 2 and played a clip of the track 'Sing' which features Madonna (and possibly other female artists). Unfortunately this new song isn't as exciting as yesterday's clip, but in the end it might turn out interesting. Click here to listen to the interview or click here to download the clip of 'Sing'.


21 August - Stuart Price producing Seal's new album
We still don't know the exact list of Madonna's collaborators on her new album, but it's interesting to point out that Seal is releasing his new album 'System' on November 20th with Confessions On A Dance Floor mastermind Stuart Price producing it, creating a new dancy style for Seal. It makes us think that Stuart's role on Madonna's new album would be limited, because both albums are scheduled to release around the same time. Click here to read a short Billboard article of Seal talking about his newfound dance direction (possibly inspired by Stuart's own style). Stuart is also rumoured to create dance tracks for Kylie Minogue, also slated for release later this year.


21 August - 'The Beat Goes On' clip leaks
Just a few weeks after the previous leak of 'Candy Shop', another clip of a Madonna/Pharrell Williams collaboration surfaces, called The Beat Goes On, thanx to MadonnaFanzine member ditaluver! Just like the previous one, it seems to be the bridge of the song (and cuts before the chorus). The track is obviously sporting Pharrell's signature sound, and he is even singing backing vocals, while Madonna's voice is high-pitched, just like in 'Candy Shop'. But it definitely has Madonna's touch, and is very catchy, makes us really excited for the new record! You can listen to the 23 seconds long clip here. The lyrics are the following:

Always the bride's maid, never the bride
Two steps behind, you've got too much pride
Always supporting, never the star
Get it together, cause the beat goes on


Read the rest of the lyrics, also provided by ditaluver on The Beat Goes On page!


20 August - More news about supposed label change
Madonna is considering leaving her current label Warner Music Group (WMG) after her next two albums are released, her publicist told FOXNews.com.
Among the alternatives the pop music icon is considering is a deal with Los Angeles-based Live Nation, Britain's leading promotions company and venue owner, said Liz Rosenberg, who represents Madonna and also works at WMG.

Music industry insiders have estimated such a move could be worth $100 million to the Material Girl.
But before any new contracts with Live Nation, WMG or any other company can be arranged, Rosenberg said, Madonna will release her forthcoming and as-yet untitled album — set to come out later this year or early next — and a greatest hits album with WMG, the label she has been with throughout her career.
"Once that's done, Madonna is a free agent," Rosenberg said. "Her management is considering a move to another company."

The news comes only weeks after WMG stock dropped to an all-time low, dipping below $10 to $9.79 a share, as reported by FOXNews.com's 411 on Aug. 7. (source: FOXNews)

~ While FOX is usually not the best source for accurate Madonna news, seems Madonna is really considering leaving her label after 25 years, but the Live Nation contract is not definitive. The release date for the new album doesn't seem to be a quote from Liz herself (just an earlier speculation) but it looks like a greatest hits release is inevitable, hopefully it's going to be the career-spanning box set next year to celebrate Madonna's 25 year-long musical career.


20 August - Label switch could be worth $100 million to Madonna
Madonna is considering leaving Warner Music, her career-long record label, to move to Live Nation, the venues and promotions company, in a deal valued by music industry executives at about $100 million (£50.5 million).

Madonna performing in Wembley, London (2006/08/12)The agreement being talked about involves combining the superstar's future recordings with her proven ability to generate massive income touring.
Warner has yet to acknowledge defeat, but industry executives expect the singer to move and receive a pay-out that would be in line with the £50 million that Robbie Williams received from EMI in 2002. It would be a significant coup for the Los Angeles-based Live Nation, which is Britain's leading venue owner and promoter, running Wembley Arena and owning the Brixton Academy. Until now, Live Nation has barely been involved in the recorded music business, although the talks reflect the fact that Madonna's future earnings are likely to be dominated by touring.

Confessions, her 2006 tour, grossed an estimated $260.1 million, according to Billboard, including eight sellout dates at Wembley Arena, which grossed £11.8 million.
The agreement reflects growing industry efforts to strike new deals with artists that include access to their touring income because the future for recording sales is so bleak. (source: The Times)


19 August - A film with a cause: The 11th Hour
From Madonna.com:
We wanted to inform Madonna fans regarding an important film with a cause close to Madonna's heart. The film THE 11th HOUR is working to alert people to the state of our environment and what we can do about it. Produced and narrated by Leonardo diCaprio, THE 11th HOUR hits screens around the United States this weekend. For more information and details on showtimes visit www.11thhourfilm.com


19 August - Madonna got the beats of Swizz Beatz? *rumour*
Hip hop producer Swizz Beatz is releasing his first solo album next week and a New York Post article mentions that Swizz was recruited to produce new records for many artists, including Madonna (on a sitenote: Gwen Stefani's next single is also produced by Swizz, called 'Now That You Got It'). We still don't have an official confirmation about all her current collaborators, but Swizz Beatz as a possible producer for Madonna was mentioned in March already. Meanwhile, do check out all the facts & rumours of the new album we've got so far!


18 August - Madonna filming a new video in NYC?
During slow news days, we grasp at every bit of information about Madonna's upcoming projects. Today's news piece is coming from an article in the Sydney Morning Herald, which writes about David Beckham's success in New York City. The article gives us a hint with saying "Madonna, who was filming a clip nearby". Hopefully we'll hear more about this in the upcoming days!


17 August - Madge gives her pals some grip
I never thought that Madonna would spend her 49th birthday with a bunch of gipsies.
But the Queen Of Pop — who has millionaires Brad Pitt, Gwyneth Paltrow and Stella McCartney as friends — slummed it on her big day yesterday with a traveller-themed bash for 20 close pals.

And Madge and husband Guy Ritchie laid on fab entertainment at their country pile in Wiltshire.
The singer splashed out on The Devil's Horsemen to lay on an equestrian show. The troop travel the UK dressed in medieval-themed costumes to perform jousting shows.
I imagine her manicured lawn will be in in an awful state today.
Madge must have taken inspiration from new best pal Eugene Hutz, from gipsy punk band Gogol Bordello.
The pair performed a Romany-inspired routine to her hit La Isla Bonita at the Live Earth gig last month. He played at her party too.
I hear Eugene teamed up with Russian gipsy act The Kolpakov Trio to get guests dancing until dawn.

It's amazing to think she'll be 50 next year.
As I told you earlier this week, Madonna is planning to put on a special gig at New York's Central Park to celebrate.
You can send my invitation to Bizarre HQ if you like, Madge? (source: Victoria Newton @ The Sun)


17 August - Something to remember: Her laughter burns you up inside
Who's That GirlJust two weeks after another chart topping anniversary, exactly 20 years ago this week Madonna was also topping the Billboard Hot 100, with her brand new soundtrack single, Who's That Girl. Other than being a soundtrack single, it actually shares some other similarities with the #1 hit from 15 years ago.

Not only Who's That Girl also spent one week at the top, it also shares the same fate of being a forgotten #1 hit because it wasn't included on Madonna's first greatest hits compilation, The Immaculate Collection. However, it is undoubtedly one of Madonna's biggest hits because it reached #1 in many countries, and is one of Madonna's five transatlantic hits. It has not been performed ever since the tour with the same name also 20 years ago, with many hoping Madonna would re-embrace it with a brand new live treatment on an upcoming tour...


16 August - Two Madonna songs to be covered on Radio 1 anniversary album
UK BBC Radio 1 station is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year and they compiled an album with songs from each of the last 40 years, but with various artists covering them. Two of Madonna's hit singles are featuring, Groove Armada is covering Crazy For You from 1991 (the UK had a re-release of the track in that year) and a new rendition of 1998's Ray Of Light by Natasha Bedingfield is also going to be included. Check out the complete tracklist here!
