"Medellín" is a song by Madonna and Maluma from her fourteenth studio album Madame X. It was released as the lead single from the album on April 17, 2019. The song was written by Madonna, Maluma, Mirwais and Barrers, and produced by Madonna and Mirwais.[1]

Background

After meeting briefly backstage at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards, Maluma sent Madonna flowers the following day, saying what a great honour it was to meet her. She later heard from his manager that he wanted to collaborate with her. She discussed this during an Apple Music Beats 1 interview with Julie Adenuga —

"I told that to Mirwais, and I started listening to his music more closely and like all the reggaeton that he does and thinking "let's do something slightly different but still has like a connection to the music that he makes, and still also connected to Madame X." We started working on music, and he started commenting and adding things and eventually we got into a studio together and he's so great to work with, one of the most easy-going, open, warm, generous, doesn't leave the studio 'til the work is done, has great work ethic, I adore him. Nothing but great things to say about him."[2]

On February 24, 2019, Madonna and Maluma both shared pictures on social media in the studio together. Madonna captioned her post "Cooking up some Fuego over here!...............🔥🔥🔥!"[3][4]

Live performances

Madonna and Maluma performed the song live for the first time at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards (BBMAs) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on May 1.[5] The performance featured the appearance of numerous holograms of Madonna in various outfits from the "Medellín" music video.[6]

Music video

The music video for "Medellín" premiered during a globally televised music event by MTV on April 24 which commenced at 9:00pm BST. The video along with a live conversation with Madonna and a fan Q&A session took place at MTV Studios in London[7], official fan viewing satellite parties were hosted in New York City, Milan, and São Paulo and Maluma made a guest appearance via live stream from Miami.[8] The video was uploaded to Madonna's official YouTube channel shortly after the live premier. The video was directed by Diana Kunst and Mau Morgó.[9]

Lyrics

Intro (Madonna):
One, two, one, two
One, two, cha-cha-cha
One, two, two, one
Two, one, cha, cha-cha-cha

Verse 1 (Madonna and Maluma):
I took a pill and had a dream (Yo también)
I went back to my seventeenth year
Allowed myself to be naive (Dime)
To be someone I've never been (Me encanta)
I took a sip and had a dream
And I woke up in Medellín (¿Te gusta?)
The sun was caressing my skin (Dime)
Another me could now begin (Woo)

Maluma:
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 aquí tengo un trono
Te gusta cabalgar, eso está claro
Si sientes que voy rápido le bajo
Discúlpame, yo sé que eres Madonna
Pero te voy a demostrar cómo este perro te enamora

Chorus (Madonna and Maluma):
Ven conmigo, let's take a trip
Si te llevo pa' un lugar lejano
Ven conmigo, I'll be so good for you
Te enamoro, te enamoro, mami (Ay-ay-ay)
Ven conmigo, let's take a trip
Dame de eso que tú estás tomando
Ven conmigo, I'll be so good for you
(Ay-ay-ay)

Verse 3 (Madonna and Maluma):
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 (Dice)

Verse 4 (Maluma):
Oye mamacita, ¿qué te pasa? (Dime)
Mira que ya estamos en mi casa (Yeah)
Si siente' que hay un viaje ahí en tu mente (Woo)
Será por el exceso de Aguardiente (Dile)
Pero, mami, tranquila, tú solo vacila
Que estamos en Colombia, aquí hay rumba en cada esquina
Y si tú quieres nos vamos por Detroit (Tú sabe')
Si sé de dónde vienes pues sé pa' donde voy

Chorus (Madonna and Maluma):
Ven conmigo, let's take a trip
Si te llevo pa' un lugar lejano
Ven conmigo, I'll be so good for you
Te enamoro, te enamoro, mami (Ay-ay-ay)
Ven conmigo, let's take a trip
Dame de eso que tú estás tomando
Ven conmigo, I'll be so good for you (Okay)

Post chorus (Maluma and Madonna, Both)
Si te enamoro (Si me enamoras)
En menos de un año, no, no (Hahaha)
No' vamo', no' vamo', no vamo' pa' Medallo (Ay, qué rico)
Si te enamoro (Si me enamoras)
Es lo que amo, no, no
Pue' mami, pue' mami, pue' mami, nos casamos
(Cha-cha-cha)

Bridge (Madonna and Maluma, Both):
One, two, cha-cha-cha
One, two, cha-cha-cha
One, two, cha-cha-cha
One, two, slow down, papi (Woo)
One, two, cha-cha-cha
One, two, cha-cha-cha
One, two, cha-cha-cha
One, two, ay-ay-ay

Verse 5 (Madonna and Maluma):
We built a cartel just for love
Venus was hovering above us (Oh, yeah)
I took a trip, it set me free (Mi reina)
Forgave myself for being me (Ay-ay-ay)

Chorus: (Madonna and Maluma):
Ven conmigo, let's take a trip
Si te llevo pa' un lugar lejano
Ven conmigo, I'll be so good for you
Te enamoro, te enamoro, mami (Ay-ay-ay)
Ven conmigo, let's take a trip
Dame de eso que tú estás tomando
Ven conmigo, I'll be so good for you

Post chorus (Madonna and Maluma, Both):
Si te enamoro (Si me enamoras)
En menos de un año, no, no
No' vamo', no' vamo', no vamo' pa' Medallo (Ay, qué rico)
Si te enamoro (Si me enamoras)
Es lo que amo, no, no
Pue' mami, pue' mami, pue' mami, nos casamos
(Cha-cha-cha)

Outro (Madonna and Maluma):
One, two, cha-cha-cha

One, two, cha-cha-cha
One, two, slow down, papi
