It's difficult to flip your album leaking a good three months before its release date into a positive. But that's just what Madonna did. After early mixes of songs from her 13th album, Rebel Heart, hit the Net last week, Madonna said fuck it and decided to release six of them on iTunes and other digital outlets. Thanks to songs like "Bitch I'm Madonna," which features Nicki Minaj and is currently #10 on iTunes' Top Songs chart, Madonna flew to the top of the Global iTunes Artist Ranking ahead of artists like Taylor Swift (#2), Nicki Minaj (#4), and Ariana Grande (#7). Rebel Heart, which will feature production from Kanye West, Mike Dean, and Diplo, is set for release on March 10 and available for pre-order on iTunes.
