Watch This: Madonna records new vocals on ‘La Isla Bonita,’ honors Diplo and Major Lazer
You may have thought being a globetrotting, headlining DJ meant one had reached superstardom. Add in multiple film and television production projects, and of course, the main stage attraction of Major Lazer, and it becomes pretty clear that Diplo has dance music in the palm of his hand. But nothing speaks to the larger-than-life success that the Mad Decent label head has achieved quite like pop music’s greatest icon rerecording her vocals for you. Bravo, Wes.
News has already reached the wire that Diplo is producing Madonna’s new album, which undoubtedly means that the queen of pop’s comeback studio effort will definitely reflect some obvious electronic influences. However, it appears that Major Lazer has had a notable impact on Madonna as she has rerecorded the lyrics to her 80’s hit from True Blue, “La Isla Bonita” to pay homage to the out-of-bounds dancehall collective.
Check the clip from BBC’s new television show “Superstar DJs” where Dip shows off Madge’s shout out to Annie Mac, who, for good reason, has her own brief fangirl moment. With powerhouse pairings like Madonna and Diplo on the rise as dance music continues to take over the world, we might all have our own fandom double takes just around the bend.
