Madonna bracht vannacht voor het eerst haar single 'Medellin' live ten gehore tijdens de Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas. Een spetterend optreden samen met Maluma, bekijk het volledige optreden onderstaand.
Madonna's allernieuwste videoclip is gisterenavond in première gegaan op MTV! De Queen of Pop was aanwezig bij het programma 'Madonna live & exclusive: ‘Medellín’ video world premiere' waar ze enkele vragen kreeg voorgeschoteld van fans. Daarna werd er met de aanwezige fans in de studio gekeken naar de videoclip van 'Medellín'.
The Queen of Pop, Madonna, is back with her latest single, "Medellín," where she collaborates with Latin pop star Maluma.
Their vocals on "Medellín" blend well together and they produce one true musical event. It has a catchy beat to it that makes it almost impossible to get out of one's head.
The song is a track on her forthcoming studio album, Madame X, which will be released worldwide on June 14 via Live Nation, Interscope Records, and Maverick.
Madonna and Colombian superstar Maluma will be performing this song live at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards on May 1 in Las Vegas.
"Medellín" is available on iTunes and on Spotify.
Overall, Madonna and Maluma deliver on "Medellín." Madge continues to reinvent herself as a recording artist, and if this is any indication of how Madame X is going to sound, then her fans and listeners are in for a treat. This collaboration garners an A rating.

The lead single from Madonna’s 14th album is driven by a decidedly unhurried tropical rhythm.
Last month, Page Six of the New York Post published an article titled “How Madonna is using younger stars to cling to relevancy.” The infamous tabloid swiftly revised its headline to the marginally softer “How Madonna is using younger stars in hopes to stay relevant” after receiving blowback for what some perceived to be a double standard. But as the gulf between the 60-year-old pop queen’s age and that of the average radio star has continued to widen, it’s true that she’s increasingly leaned on collaborations with younger artists like Justin Timberlake and Nicki Minaj.
You’d be forgiven, then, for assuming that “Medellín,” the first single from Madonna’s upcoming 14th album, Madame X, is an attempt to cash in on the ever-growing popularity of reggaton. While the 25-year-old Maluma is a huge star in Latin America, however, he’s yet to cross over beyond the Latin-pop market in the U.S., so the partnership appears to be a mutually beneficial one. And Madonna has lovingly appropriated Latin culture in her work for decades, as far back as 1986’s “La Isla Bonita,” and as recently as her torero-inspired music video for 2015’s “Living for Love.” In fact, one could argue it’s the single most consistent musical theme of her career outside of, say, dance music more broadly.
Co-produced by Mirwais, who was previously at the helm of Madonna’s Music and American Life albums, “Medellín”—named after the city where Maluma was born—is a sultry midtempo track driven by a decidedly unhurried tropical rhythm and Madonna’s catchy refrain of “one-two cha-cha-cha.” The singer’s inexplicably Auto-Tune-drenched verses are nostalgic and wistful, nodding to the breezy escapism of “La Isla Bonita”: “I took a sip and had a dream/And I woke up in Medellín.”
Vocally, Maluma does most of the heavy-lifting on the bilingual track, with inuendo-filled verses that reference both Colombia and Madonna’s hometown of Detroit. But Madonna’s sugary harmonies, particularly during the song’s rousing hook, balance out Maluma’s gigolo routine with a dreamy sweetness.
The music video for “Medellín” will premiere on April 24. Madame X is out June 14 on Interscope Records.
Madonna and Maluma are bringing the worldwide television debut performance of their single "Medellín" to the 2019 Billboard Music Awards. The appearance, announced on Friday (April 19), will be Madonna's first performance of new music on TV in more than four years. The pair will take the stage on May 1 at the Kelly Clarkson-hosted show, which will air on NBC at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
The first taste of Madonna's upcoming 14th studio album, Madame X (June 14), is a mid-tempo Spanish pop burner that finds the pair flirting over a skittering cha-cha beat, with Maluma telling the pop superstar, "Excuse me, I know you are Madonna/ But I'm going to show you how this perro (dog) will make you fall in love." Madonna last performed at the BBMA's in 2016 during a tribute to Prince.
They join a previously announced group of performers at this year's show, which include: the Jonas Brothers, BTS with Halsey, Kelly Clarkson, Lauren Daigle, Khalid, Panic! at the Disco and Sam Smith and Normani. The show from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas will also feature a special performance from 2019 ICON Award recipient Mariah Carey.
Madonna is back. Just a few weeks ago, the Queen of Pop officially announced her fourteenth studio album, Madame X, after months of teasing.
The 15-track album, dropping on June 14, is inspired by her time living in Lisbon, Portugal, and will feature her singing in Portuguese, English and Spanish. On Wednesday (April 17) she unveiled the first single, a smoldering collaboration with Maluma titled "Medellín." The release is the first since her 2015 album, Rebel Heart.
As expected, the "Like a Virgin" singer has been anything but silent since her last drop. From awards, controversy and a massive world tour, Billboard has compiled a timeline to catch you up on everything Madonna has been up so since her last record. See it below.
During his headlining set, the rapper performed his mixtape cut "Madonna," before bringing out the songstress herself. Most notably, she planted a smooch on Drake before walking off stage.
Her star-studded clip featured Beyonce, Katy Perry, Kanye West, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, Chris Rock, Diplo, Rita Ora, Alexander Wang and her sons Rocco and David.
In support of her album, Madonna took off on an 82-show tour across North America, Asia, Europe and Oceania. The tour was expected to launch in August, but she rescheduled the first five shows while trying to perfect the tour experience for her fans. The gig welcomed surprise guests like Anderson Cooper and Ariana Grande throughout its run. The tour grossed $169.8 million, as the icon kept her record as the highest-grossing solo touring artist with total gross of $1.131 billion, beginning with the 1990 Blond Ambition Tour. Overall, she ranked third on all-time top-grossing Billboard Boxscore list, with just The Rolling Stones ($1.84 billion) and U2 ($1.67 billion) ahead of her.
Madonna made an appearance at her ex-husband’s Help Haiti Home charity gala and performed a French song on the ukelele, which was auctioned off for $300,000. "I want to say Sean, I love you, from the moment that I laid eyes on you," Madonna said in a speech, according to Variety. "I just wish you'd stop smoking cigarettes.
While in the Philippine capital for two nights of shows, she made surprise visits to two Manila shelters for orphans and street children, taking selfies with the kids and asking about the centers' programs.
Just one month after the music royal passed away, she performed “Nothing Compares 2 U" and “Purple Rain,” which included a surprise appearance from Stevie Wonder. “Anyone who wants to do a tribute to Prince is welcome to,” she responded to the BET's criticism that she was not good enough to honor the legend. “Whatever your age Gender or skin Color. If you loved him and he inspired you then show it!!!! I love Prince 4 ever.”
The lawsuit originally filed in 2013 claiming that Madonna and producer Robert "Shep" Pettibone illegally sampled a tune was resolved. Theruling was affirmed by a California federal court, holding on summary judgment that a 0.23 second sampling on "Vogue" of a horn hit from the 1976 song called "Love Break" was de minimis, meaning small enough to be trivial.
Madonna sparked rumors of romance with the actor when she posted a video of Elba's first professional kickboxing match that was held in London. "Am I sleeping with Madonna? No motherfuckers... 'Don't believe the Hype'," he wrote on Twitter.
At the event, she auctioned off pieces from her art collection, a costume from her tour modeled by Ariana Grande (who she kissed), and black and white photos from her 1985 wedding to ex-husband Sean Penn. She also performed a cover of Britney Spears' "Toxic," and criticized President Donald Trump, who was elected just a month before.
After being introduced by Anderson Cooper, Madonna delivered a tearful speech on feminism and sexism. "I stand before you as a doormat. Oh, I mean, as a female entertainer," she said. "Thank you for acknowledging my ability to continue my career for 34 years in the face of blatant sexism and misogyny and constant bullying and relentless abuse."
"Welcome to the revolution of love, to the rebellion, to our refusal as women to accept this new age of tyranny, where not just women are in danger but all marginalized people, where being uniquely different right now might truly be considered a crime. It took this horrific moment of darkness to wake us the f--- up," she told the crowd of 500,000. She also performed "Express Yourself" and "Human Nature."
After denying rumors that she was in the southern African country to complete an adoption process, claiming she was there for charity work, the icon revealed she is welcoming twin girls, Estere and Stella, into her family.
The Mercy James Institute for Pediatric Surgery and Intensive Care, located at the Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital in the city of Blantyre, was built in collaboration with Malawi's health ministry. "You started by adopting four Malawian children, now we are adopting you as the daughter of this nation," President Peter Mutharika declared at the official opening ceremony.
The songstress reportedly fell in love with the country after ending a tour there in 2004. Until her move, she had been living in New York. "This is not America's finest hour," she explained of her move, "I felt like we needed a change, and I wanted to get out of America for a minute."
“I’m tired of hearing people complain here that they can’t get it in America,” the pop star told WWD. MDNA Skin, available online and at Barney's retail stores, consists of a face wash, rose spray, a face serum, clay mask, eye mask and serum, and rejuvenator set.
Madonna lost the right to a number of sentimental items, including a love letter from the late hip-hop legend Tupac Shakur, due to a release she signed back in 2004, and as a result, forfeited her right by waiting too long to contest ownership. "For you to be seen with a black man wouldn't in any way jeopardize your career, if anything it would make you seem that much more open and exciting," the letter reads, dumping the pop songstress. "But for me, at least in my previous perception I felt due to my 'image,' I would be letting down half of the people who made me what I thought I was."
“People tell me to shut my mouth/ That I might get burned,” she sang during the religious-themed set to coincide with the event’s “Heavenly Bodies” theme. “Keep your beautiful lies/ 'Cause I'm not concerned.” She later uploaded her full performance, including the new song, "Like a Prayer" and "Hallelujah" in August in honor of her 60th birthday. "Beautiful Game" was the beginning of speculation for a new album.
Before presenting Camila Cabello with video of the year, Madonna paid tribute to Aretha Franklin, who died just days before. However, her speech garnered some backlash, as she spoke mostly about her own career and start in the business before thanking Franklin for “empowering all of us. R.E.S.P.E.C.T.”
“I’m finishing my record, which I’m going to release next year,” Madonna told WWD while promoting the beauty roller added to her skincare line. “Yep, in between rose mist spray and serums, I’m actually making music. Can’t quit my day job.”
The pop icon dipped her toes into the hip-hop world with her contribution to Quavo’s Quavo Huncho album. “Champagne Rose,
Madonna took to Instagram to post a mysterious teaser in which she goes through several alter-ego costume changes and says that Madame X "is a secret agent traveling around the world changing identities, fighting for freedom" and "bringing light to dark places."
The first single off Madame X features the Colombian superstar for a sultry Spanglish tune in which the pair flirts with each other in the lyrics. "Excuse me, I know you are Madonna/ But I'm going to show you how this perro (dog) will make you fall in love," Maluma muses to the pop icon.

Het voelt een beetje alsof we terug zijn in de jaren tachtig. Madonna presenteert op woensdag 24 april tijdens een wereldpremière op MTV haar nieuwe videoclip Medellín. En zo is MTV weer even de muziekzender die het ooit was.
De 60-jarige Madonna zelf is in Londen met de Britse DJ Trevor Nelson. Hij presenteert een live talkshow waarin 200 fans dvragen mogen stellen aan Madonna over haar nieuwe liedje maar ook over de rest van haar lange muziekcarriere.
En het feest is niet alleen in Londen maar ook in Miami, New York, Milaan en São Paulo. De Spaanstalige popster Maluma (die op de nieuwe single meedoet) presenteert het event live vanuit Miami. Madonna beantwoordt via de satelliet ook vragen van MTV’s Sway Colloway en fans in New York, Milaan en São Paulo. Het programma duurt in totaal 30 minuten.
Het nummer Medellín is dus nog niet te zien, maar wel te beluisteren.
