Madonna has finally released a new version of Frozen; remixed by Sickick and featuring Afronbeats legend Fireboy DML.
The track came about as the original remix of the song by producer Sickick went viral on TikTok. Never one to let a promotional opportunity pass her by, Madge then officially jumped on the track, bringing Fireboy DML with her.
As it stands, the track counts as the first official release from Madonna's planned re-release of her entire back catalogue since re-signing with original label Warner last year.
The song morphs from Madonna's ice-cold, electronica-influenced vocals, shifting into something of trap beat for Fireboy DML's verse. It's an interesting exchange for all three artists; the cultural cachet Fireboy and Sickick will recieve from collaborating with Madonna is undeniable, while the Queen of Pop once again proves she's willing to rip up the rulebook of her own hitmaking legacy to keep one foot in the mainstream.
A Number 1 hit in 1998, the original Frozen is perhaps best known for its cinematic music video, where a gothic Madonna is in the desert, before transforming into a flock of black birds and a hound. It was written by Madonna and frequent collaborator Patrick Leonard and co-produced by William Orbit, who helped influence the electronica style of Frozen's parent album, Ray Of Light.
One of the most influential and successful pop artists of all time, Madonna this year celebrates 40 years since the release of her landmark debut album - not only will she release deluxe editions of all her previous records, she is also co-writing and directing the biopic of her life, with auditions currently underway for the lead role.
Chart-wise, Madonna has both the most Number 1 singles for any female act on the Official Charts, with a total of 13. Only Cliff Richard and Westlife (14), The Beatles (17) and Elvis (21) have more. Madonna is also the female solo act with the most UK Number 1 albums in UK chart history, with 12 in total.
