Madonna has returned.

Days after announcing 'Madame X', her first album in four years, the pop icon has shared Medellín, a sultry Latin-pop collaboration with Colombian singer Maluma that features airy synths, rhythmic reggaeton beats, and call and response verses.

The track premiered as Zane Lowe’s World Record on his Beats 1 show on April 17, while its accompanying video is scheduled to be unveiled globally via an exclusive televised MTV music event on April 24 at 9pm BST.

Influenced by her time living in Lisbon, Portugal, as well as her love of Latin music and culture, the album features 15 songs that are sung in Portuguese and Spanish, as well as English. It's set to arrive on June 14 and also features collaborations with Quavo and Swae Lee, as well as production by Mirwais, Mike Dean and Diplo, among others.

The album's title comes from the name of the chameleonic character that Madonna will play across the record. Discussing it, she said:

"Lisbon is where my record was born. 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."

Mon 15 Jul 2019
Ed Sheeran’s fourth studio album takes its title from an EP he made eight years ago, pre-superstardom. As he noted on Instagram: “Before I was signed in 2011, I made an EP called No.5 Collaborations Project.

Banks - III (Album Review)
Fri 19 Jul 2019
‘III’, Banks’ appropriately titled third album, has been a short while in the making but feels like the culmination of the songwriter’s more ambitious work to this point. Five years since the release of her debut LP 'Goddess' the LA artist has shifted direction within her sound, infusing her synth-heavy trip-pop aesthetic with a jaded sense of heartbreak, maturity and raw passion.
