'Heartbreak City' & 'Two Steps Behind Me'

Madonna has reportedly laid into Lady Gaga and ex-hubbie Guy Ritchie in songs which could end up on her new album.
Leaked lyrics from the track Heartbreak City allegedly slam Ritchie for:
"Getting what [he] came for, a bit of fame and fortune, and I’m no longer needed."

Though the lyrics have yet to be confirmed, multiple news sources corroborated that the song seemed to call out Ritchie. And, although Ritchie is not named, the lyrics seem very much from the heart.
While Gaga, who has praised Madonna as a major influence on her work, is the apparent target in the song Two Steps Behind Me, in which Madge sings: 
“You’re a copycat, where is my royalty? Did you study me hard enough? You're never gonna be, you're just a wannabe me. Like a sister all messed-up, who's gonna help you out? In your fantasy, you can try it all. But you can't be me.
'You can walk the walk, even talk the talk. But you'll always be two steps behind me.”

The both songs were recorded with Avicii, but that no final tracklist for the album has yet been decided. More than one track on the album is about the ending of their three year relationship which left Madonna more vulnerable than most people might think.

Neither track may actually end up on the new album, but the lyrics show that The Queen of pop, who celebrated her 56th birthday earlier this month, has not lost her touch.
After originally finding fame in the '80s with hits like Papa Don't Preach and True Blue, Madonna has gone on to have hits across four decades, establishing herself as one of the biggest musical icons of all time.
