Living for Love is USA Today’s Song of the Week
Song of the week: Madonna’s ‘Living for Love’
Madonna gets into the groove with her latest single, Living for Love, a confident house track that’s the lead single from her forthcoming Rebel Heart album, due in March. One of six Rebel Heart tracks released over the weekend, Living for Love is so optimistic, so self-assured, it may not be immediately apparent it’s a post-breakup song. “Took me to heaven and let me fall down,” Madonna sings in the pre-chorus, “Now that it’s over, I’m gonna carry on.”
Written with Alicia Keys, among others, and produced with Diplo, it’s the sort of determined dance anthem Madonna does so well.
