Colombian singer Maluma teased new collab with Madonna on Instagram and the Internet went wild. Here is what we know about the popular artists joining forces.
Maluma is not hiding his excitement over his new collab with Madonna and his fans are going wild over his recent post on Instagram. The Colombian star, 25, shared a promotional photo with the Queen of Pop, 60, where she is dressed in white (in lavish wedding gown?) with theatrical hat, veil and golden eyepatch. The American fashionista’s look also includes a red leather glove! Maluma is decked out in red suit fit for a king and the two artists are holding hands in a sultry pose. Madonna reposted the image, adding to the online madness over the song’s upcoming release.
“MADONNA ✖️ MALUMA M&M. This still seems incredible, I still can’t believe it but it is a REALITY!”, he wrote. “On April 17 we release our new song titled ‘Medellín'”. The “Felices los 4” singer is making parceros everywhere jump for joy with this new single filled with Colombian pride. Maluma’s fans showered him in comments on Instagram. “Like the king you are!,” said one fan about joining forces with pop music royalty and taking this important step towards a mainstream market crossover. “Can’t wait!,” wrote another. “Next level”, expressed another follower.
The two artists have shown a special chemistry and seem like a musical match made in heaven. How did the stars align? They met backstage at the MTV VMAs in 2018 and Maluma shared a photo on Instagram, confessing Madonna had given him her “blessing.” He posted a photo with the “Like a Virgin” singer with her hands on his shoulder like a spiritual guru, seemingly sharing a deep and meaningful piece of wisdom. “She gave me her blessing and told me I was ready for the next level. Te amo Reina. You are a great inspiration,” he wrote then about their encounter.
In February, both singers shared photos on Instagram at the recording studio. “Ms. Crazy and Mr. Safe,” said Maluma’s caption of the cozy photo with the Material Girl. Madonna posted a similar image with the caption: “Cooking up some fuego over here!”
We can’t wait to hear what their musical concoction sounds like! Counting the days…
