Hear Madonna And Swae Lee Team Up for ‘Crave’

Madonna has dropped another track from her upcoming album, Madame X, this time in collaboration with Rae Sremmurd’s Swae Lee. The song, “Crave,” is a sultry pop number about hungering for another person and was produced by Mike Dean, a frequent collaborator with Kanye West. “My cravings get dangerous,” Madonna croons. “I don’t think we should play with this.” Lee steps in for a smooth-talking verse midway through the track.

“Crave” is the third song to appear off Madame X, which will be released on June 14. She previously dropped inspirational number “I Rise,” as well as her upbeat single “Medellín,” which features Colombian singer Maluma. Madame X is the singer’s first release since 2015’s Rebel Heart and will feature several collaborations, including with Migos’ Quavo and Brazilian singer Anitta. Maluma will also appear on another track titled “Bitch I’m Loca.” Madonna said of the new album, “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.”

Madonna also recently announced her “Madame X” tour, which kicks off September 12th at the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House in Brooklyn, New York. On the tour, Madonna will perform multiples nights each in a handful of cities, including the Chicago Theatre in Chicago, the Wiltern in Los Angeles, the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, the Boch Center Wang Theatre in Boston, the Met Philadelphia and the Jackie Gleason Theatre at the Fillmore Miami Beach.

Tickets and further information is available at Here is a link to a video from Madonna about the Tour:

Influenced creatively by living in Lisbon, Portugal over the past several years, Madame X is a collection of 15 new songs that celebrate Madonna’s career-long affair with Latin music and culture as well as other global influences. Singing in Portuguese, Spanish and English, Madonna collaborated on Madame X with longtime producer Mirwais, as well as with producers Mike Dean and Diplo, among others.

 Of “I Rise,” NME says the song, “is politics and positivity combined,” while Rolling Stone calls the song, “Uplifting” and Billboard says its, “Powerful.” NPR says, “Medellín is a carefully dosed combination of…coolly narcotic dance-pop…and energetic reggaetón,” while Entertainment Weekly declares the song is, “A breezy, summer-ready anthem…” The Guardian says, “Medellín is a potent reminder of Madonna’s deft history of meshing genres.” 

 Madame X from Live Nation, Interscope Records and Maverick will come in a standard and deluxe version of the album and is now available for pre-order. Album pre-orders include a download of “Medellín,” “I Rise” and “Crave,” which is available across Apple, Spotify (pre-save), Amazon and all DSPs. Exclusive album pre-order bundles with limited edition merchandise are now available direct from

Madonna & Swae Lee Break Taboo With The Age-Defying “Crave”

Madonna’s unyielding presence is comparable to a desert rose.
Raise your hand if Madonna‘s mild interjection onQUAVO HUNCHO did away with your heart. The anti-ageist fancies herself the same person who once trolled David Letterman with yes/no answers to the point of ridicule. That’s where Swae Lee comes into play, as the Tristan to her Isolde, the Billy Bob to Angelina’s vial of blood. Between the two of them, there’s no shortage of spunk to make the rounds.

It’s easy to see why Madonna went with the much-younger Swae Lee as her fictional “better half.” The twenty-something-year-old is essentially a water-downed version of the men she used to date (i.e. Dennis Rodman). So, before you go about doubting her personage, check the transcripts one last time before perusal.

While “Crave” is already available in select markets, the full-version only becomes available to North Americans at midnight. After seeing Madame X through to the finish line (tomorrow, May 10), the 60-year old singer will embark on a short concert run in three major US cities: Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles.


Quotable Lyrics:

I’m tired of being far away from home
Far from walking home, far from where it’s safe
Hope it’s not too late
Rush, rush, rush on you, love, love, love on you
Love you like a fool, put my trust in you.

– Madonna
