Birthday queen! Madonna rolls out an “I Rise” remix package
Madonna is celebrating her 61st birthday by giving us a gift. Today (August 16) the Queen Of Pop marked the occasion by rolling out a remix package in support of “I Rise.” The reflective mid-tempo is a personal favorite on the Madame X tracklist. It was only strengthened with the release of a politically charged video. And now the song finds new life on the dance floors with the assistance of six remixes. Crafted by the likes of DJLW, DJ Kue, Daybreakers and Offer Nissim, each plays with the BPM for different effects.
A highlight is Thomas Gold’s take, which picks up the pace and cuts back the run time to a perfectly tailored floor filler. DJ Irene and The Alliance’s version is another gem that offers a unique update. Hopefully clubs across the globe will be playing these tonight in honor of the Queen’s special day. It’s also great to see how much love she is showing to her 14th LP. At this point, my only hope is that she eventually turns her attention to other gems including her Anitta collab “Faz Gostoso” or her second Maluma duet “Bitch, I’m Loca.”
In the meantime, pick a favorite “I Rise” remix below.
