Spanish police have arrested and charged a man on suspicion of illegally leaking a new Madonna song online.
A demo version of uptempo track Give Me All Your Love surfaced on the internet last month, prompting the pop superstar and her manager Guy Oseary to appeal to fans to help track down the person responsible for the unauthorised release.

In a series of posts on Twitter.com, Oseary wrote, “The plan was for new music to come out in the new year… and yet someone leaked a demo version of a song yesterday… I’m very happy with the positive reaction to the demo, but we are very upset with whoever leaked the song!!!!!!!!

“We are asking that the fans please help us police any more leaks… we have a lot in store for you.. but please respect the process.. madonna told me this morning ‘my true fans wouldn’t do this’… whoever is responsible for this leak, we ask that you please stop!.. she is only upset with whoever leaked the music.. we would love to know who that is..”

The hunt for the culprit led Madonna’s legal reps to Europe, and police busted the suspect in the city of Zaragoza in northern Spain on Wednesday.

Cops have only released the initials of the male as J.M.R. and they claim he is a big fan of the Material Girl who did not seek to profit from the release, reports Reuters.

He was charged with leaking the unpublished song and subsequently released.

The finished version of Give Me All Your Love is due to feature rappers Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. and will be included on Madonna’s 12th studio album, which will be released in January.
