Madonna has hinted she is going to work with Diplo again.
The Queen of Pop tried to get hold of the producer – who worked on a number of the tracks on her last record ‘Rebel Heart’ in 2015 – over the weekend, but she realised he was preoccupied soaking up the sun in Ibiza so hasn’t been checking his phone.
Commenting on a photo of the Major Lazer star laying on the bow of a luxury boat with a friend in the middle of the ocean on his Instagram, the ‘Holiday’ hitmaker wrote: “Now I know why you aren’t answering my text!”, along with the laughing crying emoji.
Last week, the 59-year-old megastar revealed she has collaborated with Portuguese musicians on her new record.
The ‘Like a Virgin’ hitmaker is set to release her 14th studio album “by the end of the year”, and revealed she’s been in the studio with a number of local musicians in Lisbon, where she has been living since her son David, 12, joined football team Benfica FC’s youth academy.
The music icon – who turns 60 on August 16 – shared: “I’ve just met lots of really amazing musicians, and I’ve ended up working with a lot of these musicians on my new record, so Lisbon has influenced my music and my work.
“How could it not? I don’t see how I could have gone through that year without being informed by all this input of culture.”
In May, lyrics and details of the Queen of Pop’s new songs were leaked online.
Madonna had recorded a number of tracks at the time, to accompany her first new song in three years, ‘Beautiful Game’ – produced by ‘Die Another Day’ producer Mirwais – which she performed at the Met Gala earlier that month.
