World, meet Madame X, a persona created by Madonna for her upcoming 14th studio album. The alter ego made her grand debut on Wednesday when the 60-year-old pop star dropped the music video for a collaborative single titled "Medellín," featuring 25-year-old Colombian singer Maluma. The summery bop, which is Madonna's first new single since 2015, combines both English and Spanish lyrics with easy-going Reggaeton beats as the two artists reflect on their pasts and imagine a trip to the Colombian city where Maluma was born.
The video opens with Madonna delivering a chilling monologue inside a chapel before getting swept off her feet by and ultimately marrying Maluma in an extravagant wedding — all while showing off an impressive array of eye patches. Madonna and Maluma may seem like a random pairing at first, but the two actually met backstage at the 2018 MTV VMAs, where they hit it off and planned to team up on music afterward. Their chemistry is certainly off the charts in the "Medellín" music video, as they cha-cha in tandem, romp around in bed with sparkling wine, and even share a steamy smooch at one point. Is it hot in here or is it just these two?
