Madonna Announces New Album 'Madame X' And Drops Its First Single Featuring Maluma
Madonna has reinvented herself yet again.. The seven-time GRAMMY winner annouced Madame X, her fourteenth studio album, will arrive June 14, and released its first single, “Medellín,” a Latin-infused pop romp featuring Colombian reggaeton star Maluma.
Madge also reveled the album's 13-song tracklist, including two features by Maluma and guest spots from Rae Sremmurd’s Swae Lee and Migos' Quavo, who she appeared with on his recent solo album Quavo Huncho.
The new single marks her first new release since 2015's Rebel Heart. The new album evidently took shape during Madonna's recent time spent in Portugal.
“Lisbon is where my record was born,” Madonna said in a statement. “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.”

The songs of Madame X, according to the statement, “celebrate Madonna’s career-long affair with Latin music and culture as well as other global influences.” Past Latin-influenced hits include her 1986 single "La Isla Bonita" and 1987's "Who's That Girl."
