In the span of less than a month, pop sensation Madonna has released yet another single.
The heavily autotuned beat dropped early Friday morning along with a short video promo, serving as a potential teaser for an upcoming video.
“Honoured to drop a song tonight with the legend Madonna,” wrote Lee, 23, on Twitter.
“(It) was an honour to work with the Queen of Pop,” he added, signing off as the “King of Melodies” in a later Instagram post.
Madame X serves as Madonna’s 14th studio album overall. It’s her first since 2015’s critically acclaimed Rebel Heart.
Crave is a seemingly new approach in Madonna’s music career as it sees the singer dip her toes into the hip-hop scene for the first time.
It’s already working in her favour, too, at least according to some of her dedicated Twitter followers.
While unexpected for some listeners, the experimentation may explain exactly why the Like a Virgin singer enlisted the help of producer Mike Dean for the job.
While Madonna is currently gaining some recognition outside of her regular diehard fanbase, she was also honoured recently at the annual GLAAD awards.
Rosie O’Donnell presented her the Advocate for Change award in recognition of her longstanding presence as a gay rights activist and continuous support of the LGTBQ2 community.
“Madame X is a freedom fighter,” concluded Madonna in her heartfelt acceptance speech.
Madame X will be released on June 14 through Interscope Records. It can now be preordered and saved through the official Madonna website.
Crave is now available on all major streaming platforms.
