Madonna, Maluma, and Holograms Perform ‘Medellin’ at Billboard Music Awards 2019
Madonna spared no expense at Wednesday night’s (May 01, 2019) 2019 Billboard Music Awards.
That’s to be expected, as the singer dropped a whopping $5 million on the performance.
Gearing up for the release of her new album, Madame X, the singer belted out “Medellin,” her first new track in four years, alongside Maluma.
According to TMZ, the $5 million price tag comes as a result of incorporating both CGI and holograms into the presentation.
The performance marks Madonna’s return to the award show world for the first time in nearly four years.
On April 19, Madonna took to Twitter to post a photo of her prepping for the awards show, with the caption, “Madame ❌ is rehearsing for something special.”
The reggaeton-inflected “Medellín” is the singer’s first in four years and serves as the first preview of Madonna’s long-awaited Madame X album.
Due out June 14th va Interscope Records, it features additional collaborations with Migo’s Quavo and Rae Sremmurd’s Swae Lee, along with production from Diplo and Mike Dean.
Suffice to say, the Queen of Pop is officially back!
