On June 14, Madonna released her long-awaited new studio album entitled ‘Madame X’.
The concept of this album is around an alter ego called Madame X as the album. This is the description revealed by the artist herself: “Madame X is a secret agent. Traveling around the world. Changing identities. Fighting for freedom. Bringing light to dark places. She is 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. The spy in the house of love”.
The album celebrates its long idyll with Latin music and culture throughout its career. ‘Madame X‘ was recorded for more than a year in Portugal, London, New York and Los Angeles, along with producers such as Mirwais, Mike Dean and Diplo.
Following the promotion of the album, Madonna has now released the official video of the song ‘Batuka‘, which pays tribute to the musical genre born in Cape Verde. The video has been directed by Emmanuel Adjei with the creative direction of Imogen Snell.
