LOS ANGELES, April 25 — Yesterday, the 60-year-old pop star unveiled the visual of her Maluma-assisted single in a live event hosted by MTV.
Directed by Diana Kunst and Mau Morgo, the six-minute video shows Madonna impersonating her eye-patched alter ego Madame X.
It opens on the singer kneeling before an altar.
“Dear God, how could I trust anyone after years of disappointment and betrayal? How could I not want to run away again and again? Escape. I will never be what society expects me to be,” she whispers in a prayer.
The cinematic clip also features Madonna assuming the identity of a cha-cha instructor, seducing Colombian singer Maluma in a passionate one-on-one.
The pair is then seen throwing an exuberant wedding celebration — with Madonna wearing a white wedding dress 35 years after her iconic Like a Virgin look.
Medellin is the lead single from the singer’s fourteenth studio album, Madame X. The record will be the follow-up to 2015’s Rebel Heart.
Ahead of the album’s release on June 14, Madonna and Maluma will perform their collaborative track at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards on May 1. — AFP-Relaxnews
