Her Madgesty is celebrating her 60th birthday this month so we’re dedicating August to the Queen of Pop. We will be picking our A to Z of Madonna singles each day this month as well as asking you to vote for your favourite Madonna album.
Today is brought to you by the letter B.
B is for Bitch I’m Madonna. What other song sums up Madonna’s undisputable self-belief and knowing than one who’s title says it all! The third and final single from her most recent album, Rebel Heart, Madonna worked with dance producer Diplo on the track which also features a guest rap from Nicki Minaj (her third appearance on a Madonna track following Give Me All You Luvin and I Don’t Give A). Bitch I’m Madonna wasn’t the big chart hit that it deserved to be and proved quite divisive with fans, but the video did boast a series of high-profile cameos (admittedly many phoned in) which has seen it reach nearly 275 million views. We love it for it’s in your face attitude and playfulness.
- Due to leaks, Madonna released 6 tracks, including Bitch I’m Madonna, in December 2014 but the official single version was released on 15th June 2015
- Madonna co-wrote the track with Diplo, Ariel Rechtshaid (When We Were Young ), MoZella (Wrecking Ball), Toby Gad (If I Were A Boy), Sophie Long (After The Afterparty) and of course Nicki Minaj.
- The video features cameos from Beyonce, Katy Perry, Kanye West, Miley Cyrus, Rita Ora and more.
There were some incredibly strong contenders for the letter B; the sultry Bad Girl, the psychadelic Beautiful Stranger and even trippier Bedtime Story, 80s tastic Borderline and the rare Burning Up. Which would’ve been your pick? Tell us on our social media channels @entfocusmusic, whilst you’re at it, what shall we choose for the letter C?
