Madame X is the fourteenth studio album released by the legendary singer-songwriter and it has had fans (including our mildly obsessed Music Manager) in awe of her latest work.

The album has had massive success worldwide, including her hit 'Medellín' (with Maluma) featuring on various charts - including our very own East Coast Radio Top 40.

One of the hits from the album, 'I Rise', has inspired a video to be created which showcases various protest movements, including "survivors of the Parkland shooting, supporters of LGBTQ equality, Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman’s powerful testimony about sexual abuse, first responders to natural disasters and other social justice movements," according to TIME.

It tells of a nation that is fighting hard for their rights and for their voice to be heard. 

Some of the lyrics include: 

Us kids don't know what we're talking about

That we're too young to understand how the government works

We call B.S.

I'm goin' through it, yeah

I know you see the tragic in it

Just hold on to the little bit of magic in it

I can't break down now

Check out the video below:

Madge has never been shy of tackling major issues in the past, so it is not a surprise that 'I Rise' has inspired this video to be created.

'God Control' is one of her songs that was created to inspire change in the gun control laws, which is currently a massive issue in the United States. 

She posted a teaser for the soon-to-be-released music video on her Twitter account. It shows her talking about the 'downfall of humanity', then cuts to a sequined-wearing Madonna in a disco club. The video then has an unexpected ending. 

You'll have to see it for yourself:

Madonna's 'Crave' is currently bubbling under this week. Will it make it onto the Top 40 or not? Tune in to the East Coast Radio Top 40 to find out.
