Madonna Debuts Political, Striking ‘Batuka’ Music Video. Watch Now.

The Queen of Pop has debuted another video for the Madame X era, and perhaps another taste of her upcoming Madame X Tour. 

Madonna‘s “Batuka” is a politically-charged track in the style of the Batuque, created by women in Cape Verde: according to the video, “some say the birth place of slave trade.” 

The percussion-heavy, call-and-answer style song is passionately sung by Madge. When she sings,

“Get that old man/Put him in a jail

Where he can’t stop us

Where he can’t hurt us”

–it’s not that hard to guess to whom she is referring. 

Watch the “Batuka” video below. Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
