The Queen of Pop is back! Madonna is making her big comeback to music in the biggest way. The 60-year-old icon is teaming up with MTV to premiere her new music video for her new song, “Medellín,” featuring reggaeton artist Maluma in an epic global event titled “MTV Presents Madonna Live & Exclusive: ‘Medellín’ Video World Premiere” on Wednesday, April 24, at 4:00 p.m. ET.
“Madonna and MTV have been intrinsically tied since their respective youths,” said Bruce Gillmer, global head of music and talent, Viacom, and co-brand head, MTV International. “As Madonna continues to rule the world, we’re thrilled to be with her once again live from our Camden studios to world premiere her incredible collaboration with Maluma, ‘Medellín.’”
MTV’s Sway Calloway and British DJ Trevor Nelson will host a live, 30-minute conversation, video world premiere and fan Q&A with Madonna from London, while collaborator Maluma will join in live from Miami. There will be additional premiere events in New York, Milan and São Paulo.
During the live event, Madonna will engage in conversation with DJ Trevor about what influenced the music for her new album, as well as the creative forces that have driven her music career for more than three decades. The “Material Girl” singer will also take questions during the global event via satellite from Sway and fans in New York City, with additional MTV-hosted events in Milan (hosted by MTV Italy Riccanza star Tommaso Zorzi) and São Paulo (hosted by Brazilian entertainer Hugo Gloss).
Madonna and MTV go way back, starting with the early premieres of the pop superstar’s legendary music videos. Madonna has been honored with 24 MTV awards between the MTV Video Music Awards and the MTV EMAs. And honestly, who could forget Madonna’s epic award show performance debut at the inaugural 1984 VMAs where she graced the stage in a wedding dress to perform, “Like a Virgin.”
And the great news is that Madonna’s fans can win the opportunity to be in the studio audience for the London, New York, Milan and São Paulo events. Further information and details are available on her official website.
