“Medellín” Single Reviews *Updated*

“The track is everything we want from a Madonna comeback: it’s fresh, (arguably her best work in years), it sets the tone for a brand new era and, if ‘Medellín’ is an indicator of what’s to come, it’ll be an exciting shift from the electro-pop bangers Madge has offered up in recent times.” NME

“‘Medellin’ is a spicy tropical banger, with Maluma’s voice certainly coming to the fore. Madonna manages the soulful breakdowns, her downcast delivery sitting at odds with the Colombian’s fire. It’s a club banger, though, and it will certainly delight the hardcore – tune in now.” Clash

“The most pleasing thing about “Medellín” is the core theme of letting go and taking chances. While Madonna still clearly has sex and dancing on the mind, this has a perspective and insight about it that only comes with experience. Idolator

“The track is centered around a classic cha-cha-chá groove over which Madonna and Maluma trade bilingual verses while the song moves effortlessly between a sparse, understated verse and a brilliant chorus bursting with deep house euphoria.” Rolling Stone

““Medellín” plays like a mix between Madonna’s single “La Isla Bonita” and Music tracks “Nobody’s Perfect” and “Paradise (Nobody’s Perfect),” which are decades apart in her discography. By bringing the two together, she bridges the divide between eras, simultaneously making something new, yet familiar, in the process.” Forbes

“And while the song may not be the dancefloor-filling that fans might be hoping for, it’s a sultry and promising introduction to Madonna’s latest era.” Variety

The disarming first song from the singer’s 14th album has some lyrical clunkers but acts as a potent reminder of her genre-mashing skills (4 out of 5) The Guardian

“Medellín” may not cause hysterics in the disco, but it proves Madonna has lost none of her daring spirit. Perhaps it will sound best blasted out of cars in sweltering traffic jams, or in the dark, getting up close, steamy, and handsy with whoever you dreamed about last night. Madonna still has something to say and, as ever, we’re compelled to listen. (4 stars) inews

““Medellín” may end up being a bigger moment for Maluma than Madonna, but as far as the pop icon’s semi-recent cool-hunting exploits go, the song sits closer to the top of the heap than the bottom.” Pitchfork

Madonna & Maluma “Medellín” Lyrics

One two one two one two cha cha cha
One two two one two one cha cha cha

I took a pill and had a dream (yo tambien)
I went back to my seventeenth year
Allowed myself to be naïve (dime)
To be someone I’ve never been (me encanta)

I took a sip and had a dream
And I woke up in Medellin (te gusta)
The sun was caressing my skin (dime)
Another me could now begin

Tranquila baby yo te apoyo
No hay que hablarnos mucho para entrar en rollo
Si quieres ser mi reina pues yo te corono
Y pa’ que te sientes aqui tengo un trono
Te gusta cabalgar eso esta claro
Si sientes que voy rapido le bajo
Disculpame yo se que eres Madonna
Pero te voy a demostrar como este perro te enamora

Ven con migo – Let’s take a trip
Si te llevo para un lugar lejano
Ven con migo – I’ll be so good for you
Te enamoras te enamoras mami
Ven con migo – Let’s take a trip
Dame de eso que tu estas tomando
Ven con migo – I’ll be so good for you

Sipping my pain just like champagne
Found myself dancing in the rain with you
I felt so naked and alive (show me)
For once I didn’t have to hide myself

Oye mamacita que te pasa? (yeah)
Mira que ya estamos en mi casa (yeah)
Si sientes que hay un viaje ahi en tu mente
Sera por el exceso de Aguardiente
Pero mami tranquila, tu solo vacila
Que estamos en Colombia y aqui hay rumba en cada esquina
Si tu quieres nos vamos por Detroit
Si se de donde vienes, pues se pa’ donde voy

Ven con migo – Let’s take a trip
Si te llevo para un lugar lejano
Ven con migo – I’ll be so good for you
Te enamoras te enamoras mami
Ven con migo – Let’s take a trip
Dame de eso que tu estas tomando
Ven con migo – I’ll be so good for you

Si te enamoro
Si t’enamoras
y ahi nos quedamos no no
Pues mami, pues mami nos casamos

One, Two cha cha cha (4x)

Slow down Papi

One, Two cha cha cha (4x)

We built a cartel just for love
Venus was hovering above us
I took a trip that set me free
Forgave myself for being me

Ven con migo – Let’s take a trip
Si te llevo para un lugar lejano
Ven con migo – I’ll be so good for you
Te enamoras te enamoras mami
Ven con migo – Let’s take a trip
Dame de eso que tu estas tomando
Ven con migo – I’ll be so good for you

Si te enamoro
Si t’enamoras en menos de un año no no
Nos vamos, nos vamos, nos vamos pa Medallo
Cha cha cha

One, two, Cha Cha Cha (4x)

Slow down Papi

One, two, Cha Cha Cha (4x)

One two two one….

Madonna will join British DJ Trevor Nelson and 200 fans live from London for a conversation about the influences of her new album, and the creative forces behind her transcendent career. “Medellín” collaborator and Colombian pop star Maluma will join live from Miami.
