This is the first time Madonna has enlisted Diplo for production duties. He previously produced five tracks off her 2015 album Rebel Heart, including “Bitch I’m Madonna,” which featured Nicki Minaj and “Veni Vidi Vici,” which featured Nas. The two have now teamed up once again for Madonna’s latest single “Future.” Featuring Quavo, “Future” is the third single off Madonna’s upcoming Madame X album. Diplo’s reggae-tinged beat provides the perfect backdrop for Madonna and Quavo’s apocalypse inspired lyrics, so much so that it almost sounds like a Major Lazer track.
Madonna first linked up with Quavo last year for their controversial track “CHAMPAGNE ROSÉ,” which appeared on the rapper’s solo debut album QUAVO HUNCHO. With their long history of collaboration, Diplo is sure to make more than one appearance on Madonna’s Madame X album dropping next month. Stream “Future” below.
