Madonna is upping the ante and the anticipation for ‘MDNA,’ thanks to minute-long samples of that she’s been leaking all week long. The latest snippet comes in the form of ‘Gang Bang,’ and this song is as saucy as its title. If there ever was a jam that sounds like it was written and recorded with the intention of blaring at a dance club in Europe at 2AM, when things are just getting started (as opposed to clearing out), it’s ‘Gang Bang.’

This is a harsh, hard song, possibly the toughest song Madge has done in quite some time.
When she sings “Bang bang / Shot you dead / Shot my lover in the head,” you’ll quickly realize this is an entirely different sort of ‘Gang Bang’ as you duck and run for cover.

The beats build and the synths sound like a whip cracking in the background, dominatrix style. It’s an overtly sexual song and the Material Girl is getting all breathy as she sings. Remember, in the mid-’90s, the element of sex factored prominently in Madge’s music and she’s revisiting that territory two decades later.

In one word: Hot!
