Limited Edition Rainbow Picture Disc Double LP!
Featuring Maluma, Quavo, Swae Lee & More!
Influenced creatively by living in Lisbon, Portugal over the past several years, Madame X is a collection of 15 new songs that celebrate Madonna's career-long affair with Latin music and culture as well as other global influences. Singing in Portuguese, Spanish and English, highlights on the album include "Medellín", which was co-produced by Mirwais and captures the spirit of guest singer Maluma's Colombian hometown, the anthemic song "I Rise", the Jamaican dancehall vibes of "Future" featuring Quavo, and co-produced by Diplo, as well as the sonically innovative Mirwais-produced "Dark Ballet". Recorded over 18 months in Portugal, London, New York and Los Angeles, Madonna collaborated on Madame X with longtime producer Mirwais, as well as with producers Mike Dean and Diplo, among others.
"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."
The 15-track Rainbow 2LP vinyl edition of the Madame X album features M and X graphic logos on 2 sides of the vinyls with the reverse side of each displaying the stripes of the rainbow flag. In Honor of Pride, all of Madonna's proceeds will go to The Trevor Project, the world's largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for LGBTQ youth.
"Madonna's choice of collaborators is the album's strongest suit by far. The Brazilian pop star Anitta joins her on Faz Gostoso, a Latin-tinged seduction track that comes fitted with a carnivale breakdown alarms, sirens and drums all piling up and the American rapper Quavo joins her on Future, a sun-kissed call for progress. Ever altering her identity, either physically, spiritually or emotionally, Madonna takes on numerous characters (and many, many accents) to create a wild and varied universe that's reflective of the general doom the world is swilling around in. 'Madame X is a secret agent. Travelling around the world. Changing identities,' she says in the album's teaser video. 'A nun. A singer. A saint. A whore. A spy in the house of love.' Her voice is heavily disguised throughout, pushing the sometimes manic concept of this album even further. Standing up against technological, social and political distortion, it's a big and ballsy production that's so bizarre in places, you can't help but be impressed." - The Irish Times
