The video also talks about kids, “Get the kids ready, take them to school, Everybody knows they don’t have a chance, To get a decent job, to have a normal life”, she says in the video.

God Control“, produced by Madonna and Mirwais, evokes the heady sound of the disco era, juxtaposing the unbridled freedom of dancing in a club with the brutal and silencing violence wrought by an intruder brandishing a gun.

As her new Madame X character types the lyrics to the song in her apartment, Madonna’s blonde video alter ego is shot and killed on the dancefloor, surrounded by her blood-spattered dancers.

The “God Control” video had been viewed more than 360,000 times on YouTube some two hours after its release on Wednesday.

The Guardian’s music editor Ben Beaumont-Thomas said the video would be “very triggering for anyone disturbed by the Pulse nightclub terror attack”, but added Madonna was making her voice heard about gun reform “louder and clearer than nearly anyone in pop culture”. “But it’s happening every day”.

Madonna stepped into the gun violence debate on Wednesday with a music video containing graphic dramatizations of a mass shooting.

She also feels the disclaimer should have been more urgent.

On June 12, 2016, Omar Mateen, a 29-year-old security guard, opened fire in Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida.

‘We need to wake up, ‘ Madonna sings.

Following the release of the video, Madonna took to Twitter to urge fans to act in advocacy of gun control.

“Gun violence disproportionately affects children, teenagers and the marginalised in our communities”.

Talking about the issue of gun safety and gun control in the United States, Madonna believed that the issue is being addressed properly.

“Honour the victims and demand GUN CONTROL. NOW”. “I understood what she used to be attempting to set with bringing consciousness to the subject of gun adjust, nonetheless I don’t mediate that used to be the true skill to switch about doing it. Good, ’cause then maybe you will do something about it”.

This is really happening. Does it make you feel bad? “I mean this is a reality”, she said.
