Surely in her decades-spanning music career, Madonna has released a masterpiece or two (or twenty). Now she’s got a track of the same name, “Masterpiece,” in which she sings about the pain of being in love with someone who’s like a great work of art. “If you were the Mona Lisa / You’d be hanging in the Louvre / Everyone would come to see you / You’d be impossible to move,” the “Give Me All Your Love” diva croons on this William Orbit-produced tune, which will play over the end credits of her directorial effort, W.E. (and appear on her 2012 album). Hear it below.
The production is minimal, reminding us very much of Madge’s American Life days, allowing us to focus on the lovely lyrics and Madonna’s gorgeous vocals. All in all, a terrific effort that bodes well for the upcoming album.
