Madonna returns with new song 'I Rise'

Music 06/05/2019

With her 14th album 'Madame X' set to be released next month, Madonna is making a powerful return with her new single, 'I Rise'.

The 60-year-old's song discusses self-empowerment, talking about rising above the struggles.

"There's nothing you can do to me that hasn't been done. Not bulletproof, shouldn't have to run from a gun. River of tears ran dry, let them run. No game that you can play with me, I ain't one," she sings.

The song's intro features an audio sample of Stoneman Douglas High School shooting survivor and gun control activist Emma Gonzalez's signature exhortation, "[They say] us kids don't know what we're talking about, that we're too young to understand how the government works. We call BS!"
