Beat Goes On

Album: Hard Candy (2008)
  • Madonna revealed to Interview magazine that this collaboration with Kanye West was rushed, as the hip-hop artist only had four hours to record his piece before he had to catch an airplane.
  • Madonna: "Lucky for us, Kanye West was recording his album across the hall while we were making our record. We were also channeling Marvin Gaye and different artists from the past."
  • While Kanye West appears on this song, The Neptunes worked on eight tracks of the hip-hop heavy Hard Candy and Timbaland produced four songs. >>

  • Leo from Westminster 1, MdHey! I love this Song! Beat Goes On-Like Secret, Little Star and What It Feels Like for a Girl
    -is another beautiful lullaby dance for Lola-only this time Lola does a lovely hip-hop dance. With Madonna giving motherly advice to her beautiful Teenage Daughter, she does so with a smile on her Ciccone face and a joy in her Evita heart. For Madge and Lola, the beat will go on forever. One of the best concertos from Hard Candy. Dance On Madonna/Evita!
  • Mike from Matawan, NjA marriage made in purgatory. They're both talentless attention whores who were made for each other.
  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnKayne West is lame - I am surprised Madge would work with him.
