Pop icon, Madonna, took to Instagram this weekend to announce Madame X, which will be her 14th album to date and the follow-up to 2015’s Rebel Heart.
In the video she posted to Instagram, Madonna presents her new Madame X persona.
The award winning star describes her persona as “a secret agent traveling around the world, changing identity, fighting for freedom, and bringing light to dark places.”
Madame X is “dancer, a professor, a head of state, a housekeeper, an equestrian, a prisoner, a student, a mother, a child, a teacher, a nun, a singer, a saint, a whore, and a spy in the house of love.”
Madonna told Vogue Italia last year, that her next album was inspired by Portugal which is where she lived throughout the process of the album being made.
“I’ve just met lots of really amazing musicians, and I’ve ended up working with a lot of these musicians on my new record, so Lisbon has influenced my music and my work. How could it not? I don’t see how I could have gone through that year without being informed by all this input of culture,”
During a performance at the Met Gala last year, she also hinted about Madame X by debuting a new song called “Beautiful Game”.
Madonna, Queen of Pop
Madonna is not only a singer-songwriter, but has also had a successful career as an actress and businesswoman.
The “Queen of Pop” has certainly been known for pushing the boundaries in mainstream pop music and for her onstage presence.
We’re looking forward to seeing what Madame X will bring.
