After surprising her stans with her first single off new album Madame X, Madonna has dropped a new empowering track.

I Rise is set to be a new anthem for all those who feel their voice isn’t heard.

The powerful track is ‘a way of giving a voice to all marginalized people who feel they don’t have the opportunity to speak their mind,’ Madonna said in a statement.

‘This year is the 50th anniversary of Pride and I hope this song encourages all individuals to be who they are, to speak their minds and to love themselves,’ the icon also said.

Her highly-anticipated new studio album debuts globally on 14 June.

Following the release of the critically-acclaimed Medellín and I Rise, Madonna will drop three additional songs over the coming weeks.

Fans can expect infectious pop gem Crave, featuring Swae Lee and produced by Mike Dean on 10 May, the Jamaican dancehall vibes of Future featuring Quavo on 17 May, as well as the sonically innovative Dark Ballet on 7 June.

What do we know on Madame X?

The new album is set to be different from anything Madonna has ever done before.

Influenced creatively by living in Lisbon, Portugal over the past several years, Madame X will contain 15 tracks celebrating Madonna’s career-long affair with Latin music and culture.

But it won’t be shy of other global influences. Madonna will showcase her singing skills alongside her language skills by speaking in Portuguese, Spanish and English.

Madonna collaborated on Madame X with longtime producer Mirwais, as well as with producers Mike Dean and Diplo, among others.
