Madonna releases the Diplo-produced ‘Bitch, I’m Madonna’
After hackers leaked her upcoming album, Madonna responded by calling it “artistic rape” and followed up by releasing six songs from Rebel Heart as an “early Christmas gift” to her fans. The result of her collaboration with Diplo and Nicki Minaj, “Bitch, I’m Madonna” was one of the aforementioned leaks. Driven by Diplo’s spastic production work, the pop icon’s EDM experiment doesn’t really come to life until Nicki Minaj contributes her verses, flatlining throughout most Madonna’s opening stint. Kudos to Diplo and Minaj for the club-ready second half but — much like her Molly gaff at Ultra Music Festival — Madonna leaves herself seeming more out of touch than ever on this one.
Bitch, we know you’re Madonna, but give it a rest.
