Club Queen! Madonna Drops (First) “Medellín” Remixes
It’s about time! From her show-stealing performance at the Billboard Music Awards to the extravagant “Medellín” visual, Madonna’s Madame X rollout has been near flawless. The only oversight, given her long reign as the Queen of Clubs, is a remix package. The sexy 60-year-old remedies that with a couple of remixes from Israeli DJ Offer Nissim. “Madame X In The Sphinx” works best for me, but the spoken intro for the “Set Me Free” remix is extremely camp. I’d just like a couple of edgier overhauls.
In other Madonna news, the enduring hitmaker is releasing another buzz track tomorrow (May 10). “Crave” was produced by Mike Dean (Beyoncé’s “Love Drought”) and features a verse from Swae Lee. The press release describes it as an “infectious pop anthem,” so that’s always a good sign. Two more songs will drop before the arrival of Madame X on June 14. “Future” featuring Quavo will be rolled out on May 17, while “Dark Ballet” debut on June 7. Hopefully, we will get more remixes before then. Take a listen below.
