LISTEN: Madonna releases new track ‘Medellín’ from upcoming album
Madonna’s new track “Medellín”, featuring Colombian reggaeton musician Maluma, is the first song off her forthcoming new album “Madame X”.
The midtempo track, which the official description said “captures the spirit of Maluma’s hometown” of Medellín, Colombia, features the two musicians singing in Spanish and English.
The official visual for “Medellín” will premiere during the globally-televised music event “MTV Presents Madonna Live & Exclusive: ‘Medellín’ Video World Premiere.”
Madonna began teasing “Madame X” on social media earlier this week, releasing a 90-second video that featured snippets of new music and explanations of the album concept.
“‘Madame X is a secret agent,” the music icon says in the video. “Traveling around the world. Changing identities. Fighting for freedom. Bringing light to dark places. She is a dancer. A professor. A head of state. A housekeeper. An equestrian. A prisoner. A student. A mother. A child. A teacher. A nun. A singer. A saint. A whore. The spy in the house of love. I’m Madame X.”
This will mark Madonna’s first new album since 2015’s “Rebel Heart”. The 13-song record will feature Madonna singing in Portuguese, Spanish and English. It will also include collaborations with Migos’s Quavo, Rae Sremmurd’s Swae Lee and Anitta, as well as a second track with Maluma titled “B*tch I’m Loca”.
“Madame X” is out June 14, and is available to preorder now, with preorders receiving an instant download of “Medellín”.
