Madonna recently signed a three album deal with Universal Music Group’s Interscope for $3 million. The new contract is in addition to  her ongoing 10 year contract with Live Nation (which she signed in 2007; potentially worth as much as $100 million).  Madonna joins existing Interscope artists including Lady GagaP Diddy and 50 Cent.

Live Nation CEO Irving Azoff originally mentioned in Feburary that a marger could happen for the star sometime later in the year. ”Live Nation, prior to the merger, entered into some of these all-rights deals, so there are certain artists, Madonna being one of them, that there is a recorded-music strategy,” Azoff said. “Once she gets the album recorded, we’ll sit down with her and her manager, Guy Oseary, and figure out what’s best for the record. It has to start with the music.”

If you’re in your 30s, chances are that you are familiar with ‘90s music. The 1990s was dominated by pop and R&B music, where artists such as MC Hammer, Boyz II Men, Paula Abdul and Britney Spears all thrived.

Not everyone is a fan of this music, but whether you like it or not, ‘90s music will soon be making a comeback on your local radio stations.

The first three years of the last decade of the 20th century belonged to Bryan Adams, Mariah Carey, Madonna, Paula Abdul and Vanessa Williams, all of whom possessed and used a very adult sounding voice in their content as compared to the pop music produced in the late 80s. page go 90s Music   A Decade in Review Continue reading ’90s Music – A Decade in Review »

If you ask someone about ‘80s music, they don’t always have pleasant memories. The general sentiment is that the ‘60s was the development of rock music, while the ‘70s was the ‘disco’ music decade and the ‘80s sucked.

The ‘60s belongs to bands such as the Rolling Stones, the Beatles and the Who along with many other classic groups who influenced the development of modern rock as we know it now.

However, ‘80s music is given less significance by the masses, but the experts think it doesn’t warrant such unfair treatment.
