    BACK IN THE GROOVE: Madonna quits record label Interscope after a decade to return to Warner who kicked off superstar’s career
    EXCLUSIVE
    From Simon Boyle's Bizarre Column
    7 Aug 2020, 21:30

    MADONNA turns 62 next weekend and now she has another reason to celebrate.

    I can reveal the queen of pop has left her label Interscope after almost a decade and is poised to sign an eight-figure deal to return to Warner Records — the label which helped her become a superstar in the first 25 years of her career.

    Madonna has quit her record label Interscope after a decade

    The Hung Up singer, who has sold 300million records worldwide to become the best-selling female musician of all time, signed a three-album deal in 2011 with Interscope — home to acts including the Rolling Stones and U2 — but has recently parted company with them.

    It means she is in line to secure a big-money deal to ­continue releasing albums throughout her sixties, back at the label where she started her ­incredible music career.

    The move follows the release in 2019 of her critically acclaimed 14th album Madame X and subsequent tour, which ended in March.

    A music insider said: “Madonna is still a force to be reckoned with.

    The queen of pop is set to return to Warner, the label who kicked off the superstar’s career

    “The fact is, she sells records, people around the world adore her and every label would love to have her on their books.

    “Now that her deal with Interscope has come to an end, she is a free agent and can choose where to go next — and Warner feels like the best place given their history.

    “But Madonna comes at a hefty price. She can command big money and wants to make sure whatever deal she signs is the best thing for her and her music.”

    The star is due to return to the charts on Friday as a featured artist on Dua Lipa’s new single Levitating along with Missy Elliott, both of whom are signed to Warner.

    As one of the biggest and best characters in music, let’s hope she doesn’t leave it too long before she returns with more tunes of her own.

      WBR could certify about 32 singles. Whitney and Mariah's labels have been updating their catalog singles/albums.

        I once looked for her singles certifications, specially the 80's are a mess, right?
        I feel like she has a lot of Gold singles that could be Platinum, and i'm sure singles like Vogue, Like a Prayer, Hung Up, 4 Minutes, etc...joining physical sales, digital and streaming, she could actually get a huge advantage.

        Do you have a detailed list of everything you think could be upgraded? If so, could you point that out for me?

            • Hmmm, Madonna's recent IG post is interesting. She's describing her Blond Ambition Tour opening outfit as someone takes note. She also mentioned screenplay. Hmmm, something for us to look forward to.

              • Finally. I’m sure I speak for the majority of M fans and say good riddance to Interscope! Hope she is back at WB. Maybe they can actually promote her the way she deserves!

                    She's probably writing the script of her biopic with Oscar winner screenwriter Diablo Cody.

                    • Just so happy that she's back with Warner. A collab with Ed Sheeran or Bruno Mars or Lizzo will now be possible.

                            • Great move. So happy for her comeback to warner. It's way better than live shition.
                              Madonna is the queen of pop and the biggest selling female music artist of all time!

                                • Yes, there is no confirmation yet. Today Variaty posted about her leaving Interscope, which is good news by itself. Hope we have some more solid info in a near future.

                                  A return to Warner would be great since her vast catalog remains there.

                                    Billboard said she has not signed with Warner nor any label.

                                          • Her moving back to Warner won't change a thing. If anything, it will only make things worse, as Interscope is a bigger & wealthier label than Warner.

                                            • The move will be good, because now, maybe they will update her certifications and she gets back at being the #2 female singer again. And maybe a few re releases and b sides and rarities. It's a good move for both Madonna and Warner to capitalize on her back catalogue.

                                                  It doesn't matter what label is wealthier, but how much they're willing to invest in the artist.
