Madonna’s “Ghosttown” Is Now A Swingin’ Lounge Anthem Thanks To RedTop
Say what you like about Madonna, but she’s never stingy with remixes. Take the pop legend’s Rebel Heart ballad “Ghosttown.” It has a super-sized club package (12 remixes in total) boasting overhauls from A-List DJs like Armand Van Helden, Don Diablo and Roger Sanchez. There’s truly something for everyone — including a swinging, nearly six-minute long, lounge version from ever-adventurous Swedish producer RedTop.
Perhaps best known for his many Beyonce remixes (that sprawling 11-minute version of “Haunted” still gives me chills), RedTop completely deconstructs “Ghosttown” and turns it into something you might hear in a post-apocalyptic piano bar. It’s sad and depressing yet defiantly groovy. Here’s the catch. The remix was released as a TIDAL exclusive, so you’ll have to give Jay Z your coins if you want to own it. Take a listen below.
