Warner Records

2022 marks Madonna‘s 40th year as a recording artist, and she’s kicking off the celebration with a new take on one of her classic hits.

Madonna’s dropped a new remix of her 1998 song “Frozen,” based on the viral version by producer Sickick that took over TikTok last year, soundtracking more than 100,000 videos. It’s called “Frozen (Fireboy DML Remix),” and is credited to Madonna, Sickick and Fireboy DML, a Nigerian singer who’s currently on the charts with an Ed Sheeran collaboration called “Peru.”  A video for the remix is coming “soon,” according to Madonna.

The War to Play Madonna

Hot Role: Madonna

The role that every young actress wants right now is the lead in the Madonna biopic, which the Material Girl is directing herself, having written the script with Oscar winner Diablo Cody. Sources say that Euphoria stars Sydney Sweeney and Barbie Ferreira both auditioned for the plum part, as did Julia Garner, the Emmy-winning star of Ozark who has been linked to the role before by wishful fans. Madonna initially set her sights on Florence Pugh “if she’ll have me” but if they’re auditioning as many actresses as they have been, it doesn’t seem as though that one worked out.

Madonna’s Ray of Light is nog steeds een spannend muzikaal avontuur

Deze week

is het 24 jaar geleden dat Madonna’s zevende album uitkwam.

Hoogste positie in de hitlijsten:

1 in Groot-Brittannië en Nederland, 2 in de VS

Terug in de tijd

Halverwege de jaren 90 was de loopbaan van Madonna na ruim tien jaar van ongekende populariteit voor het eerst in het slop geraakt. Had de Queen of Pop met haar controversiële fotoboek Sex (1992) en de broeierige slaapkameralbums Erotica (1993) en Bedtime Stories (1994) haar hand overspeeld? De platen bevatten, en dat was voor Madonna voor het eerst, in elk geval geen grote hits.

How Madonna annoyed Z100 into making her a star: ‘Worst to First’ doc

 

In 1983, Madonna was just a girl knocking on doors and trying to get her song “Holiday” played on the radio. She was so desperate, she’d even make the trip out to Secaucus, NJ, where the new radio station Z100 had just elbowed its way to No. 1 in a crowded Big Apple market.

Sticky & Sweet Tour Paris September 20, 2008 photo gallery

We saw our final two shows of Madonna’s Sticky & Sweet Tour in Paris at the Stade de France in 2008. After catching Madonna swift exit at her hotel that afternoon we headed to the stadium and were shocked by the size of the Golden Circle. The Golden Circle was so big that it almost took up the entire floor, Golden Circle was basically a General Admission ticket. Quite a few angry fans throwing their Hot Ticket passes to the staff….but unfortunately there was nothing they could do about it.

Bob Sinclar was the support act and played his set while the audience was busy with the Mexican Wave. Madonna started her show at 9.30 and was in a great mood, which is usually the case in Paris. The audience was great and participated from the start. Madonna was happy about the enthusiasm of the crowd and made sure to tell them that. She sang “Express Yourself” during the request section and danced her ass off. We decided to walk around the floor and take photographs from multiple angles.
