Madonna has unveiled her new song Medellin, the first track to be taken from her 14th studio album Madame X.

The 60-year-old is back to take on the charts with this laid-back number, featuring Columbian singer Maluma.

Starting off with Madonna whispering cha cha cha and singing about taking a pill it slowly builds into a pulsing salsa number.

Medellin, like the rest of Madame X, is inspired by Portugal where the music icon has been spending a lot of her time in recent years.

Of her new record, Madonna said: Lisbon is where my record was born. I found my tribe there and a magical world of incredible musicians that reinforced my belief that music across the world is truly all connected and is the soul of the universe.

Fans are going to have to wait until 24 April for the video, but the singer has been sharing her new look on Instagram as she explained the meaning behind Madame X.

In a short clip, Madonna explained her new era of music: I decided to call my record Madame X… a secret agent travelling around the world, changing identity, fighting for freedom, and bringing light to dark places.

Madame X is a dancer, a professor, a head of state, a housekeeper, an equestrian, a prisoner, a student, a mother a child, a teacher, a nun, a sinner, a saint a whore and a spy.

The Like A Virgin singer recently spoke of the amazing musicians she worked with to put her record together.

Speaking to Vogue Italia, she said: Ive just met lots of really amazing musicians, and Ive 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 dont see how I could have gone through that year without being informed by all this input of culture.

She continued: Its also such a nice antidote to whats going on in the music business now where everythings so formulaic, and every song has 20 guest artists on it, and everyone sounds the same. Somethings gotta give.

We might be hearing a live version of the track if rumours she is set to perform at this years Eurovision Song Contest are to be believed.

It may prove to be a controversial move with many fans pleading with the singer to scrap the performance over the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
