While in Rio de Janeiro celebrating the World Cup at the Nike’s Phenom House Wobble Party (June 28), Diplo revealed he’s recently collaborated with Madonna on her latest album, as had been previously rumored.
Although very little is known about the production, the DJ/producer, who claims hits with Britney spears, Katy Perry, Beyonce Jennifer Lopez and MIA, revealed to Brazilian website Heliosa Tolipan that he wrote seven songs with the Queen of Pop — and one track in particular may raise some eyebrows.
“I do not usually feel pressured to write hits, but when an artist is of this caliber, it’s obvious that I want to push the boundaries a little further and surpass myself,” Diplo said via Google translation from the Brazilian website. “One of the songs we wrote is very cool. It’s called “B—h, I am Madonna” [“B—h, I’m Madonna”].”
Diplo also noted that he was impressed that even as she approaches 60 years of age, Madonna “still holds the pop throne and has not lost one iota of its irreverence along the way.”
According to Diplo, he met Madonna through her children and was subsequently invited to a party.
Disclosure had been rumored for inclusion on Madonna’s upcoming album but recently nixed the rumors, saying they had met and nothing more.
Meanwhile, Madonna revealed a clip of a new song, “Messiah,” today.
