She’s getting back into the groove.
The wait is (almost) over for the fans of the “greatest” female artiste of all time, according to Billboard.
After weeks of social media tease, Madonna announced on Instagram over the weekend the name of her 14th studio album: Madame X – the first since the critically acclaimed Rebel Heart, from 2015.
Then on Monday, she revealed that the first single Medellin will release Wednesday.
It’ll be a collaboration between the iconic pop star and reggaeton superstar Maluma.
The Instagram post featured a photo of Madonna dressed in a white wedding gown, in bright red gloves and brighter red lips, with her arm wrapped around Maluma.

In a video posted a day earlier, the pop legend teased her new music.
“I’ve decided to call my album Madame X,” she says in the minute-long video, in an uncharacteristically subdued, almost demure manner. But as a snippet of her new music plays in the background, images that seem to pay homage to some of the most iconic moments of her near four-decade-long career (Like a Virgin! Erotica! Rain! Bad Girl!) remind viewers of her ever-staying power.
“Madame X is a secret agent, travelling around the world, changing identities, fighting for freedom, bringing light to dark places,” she says, before revealing that Madame X is her new artistic persona. “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, and a spy in the house of love.”
Besides the album and the new collaboration, she recently announced she’s performing at the Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv, Israel in May; she’s partnered up with Italian label Moschino on a line of luxury skincare sets; and she’s getting ready attend a party in her honour: On May 4, the 30th Annual GLAAD Media Awards in New York will celebrate her work as an LGBTQ ally and activist. – New York Daily News/Tribune News Service
