Madonna Drops Comeback Single and Details New Album ‘Madame X’

After spending the past few years residing and creating in Lisbon, Madonna has finally revealed her first album plans since 2015’s Rebel Heart. The announcement of Madame Xdue out June 14th—was quickly followed by the album’s first single: The sultry, global dance-pop track “Medellin”, ft. Maluma.

The energetic, reggaeton-fueled single, in addition to statements from the artist herself, shows us that the 60 year old pop singer has embraced Latin and Global dance music as the foundation of her 14th studio album. Check out the first Madame X track, “Medellin“, below.

According to the press release, Madame X will be a culmination of the sounds and sights which inspired Madonna during her stay in Portugal. “Lisbon is where my record was born,” Madonna says. “I found my tribe there and a magical world of incredible musicians that reinforced my belief that music across the world is truly all connected and is the soul of the universe.”

Though the dreamy narrative in “Medellin” is confusing at first—“we built a cartel just for love”? huh?—the song will make sense in the larger scheme of Madame X, which Madonna has said will be an album of multiple identities, with a spy movie sense of adventure. Madonna will inhabit the roles of “a teacher, a nun, a cabaret singer, a saint, a prostitute” and many more, according to her latest onrush of Instagram posts.

Intended to be a celebration of musicians across borders, the 15-track Madame X will feature a number of Latinx and Global artists. Be sure to catch the “Medellin” music video as it premiers April 24th on MTV Presents Madonna Live.
