Madonna just released the anthemic ballad I Rise, the second track of five songs off her upcoming album. Following the release of Medellín, additional songs to be shared with fans include the infectious pop gem Crave featuring Swae Lee and produced by Mike Dean on May 10, the Jamaican dancehall vibes of Future featuring Quavo on May 17, as well as Dark Ballet on June 7.
Madame X debuts globally on June 14th. Madonna says of the new track,
“I wrote ‘I Rise’ as a way of giving a voice to all marginalized people who feel they don’t have the opportunity to speak their mind. This year is the 50th anniversary of Pride and I hope this song encourages all individuals to be who they are, to speak their minds and to love themselves.”
As WOW‘s James St. James reported, Madonna has been busy filming the video for this new track with a number of Drag Race queens– including Monet X Change.
