Madonna's Teaser For 'God... Billboard

Madonna Shares Dark Teaser For 'God Control' Video

Madonna has never shied away from getting political. Whether in her music videos for songs like “Like a Prayer,” or in her outward actions like fighting against the AIDS crisis, Madge has always made it a goal to express her politics openly whenever she gets the chance. Now, the star is taking on yet another issue in hopes of inspiring change -- gun violence.


On Tuesday (June 18), Madonna released a teaser for her upcoming “God Control” music video. The clip starts off with the star talking to the camera, saying that writing songs about “the downfall of humanity” can get her down, so she has to find a positive release. “Where does a girl go? She goes to the disco,” she says.

The clip then shows behind-the-scenes footage of Madonna, clad in a fully-sequined outfit and a blonde bob, dancing and shaking at a disco club for the video, as she speaks about how the joy of disco clubs in the 1970s helped her feel welcome in New York. But the video takes a dark turn as Madonna and her fellow dancers are suddenly shown on the floor of the club, with blood staining their hands and clothes.

“I tried to bring the world of disco and freedom, and having that joy silenced by a small thing made of metal that can end someone’s life,” Madonna says over a clip of a man with a shotgun firing rounds in the club. “Guns need to be made illegal.” Fans have begun speculating that the clip is a reference to the tragic Pulse nightclub shooting of 2016, where 49 men and women were killed in the Orlando gay club.

The content of “God Control,” off of the singer's new album Madame X, point to the specific subject of the video; the song begins as an emotional ballad, but culminates into a classic disco-style track, while Madonna admonishes America’s lack of gun safety through her lyrics. “People think that I’m insane/ The only gun is in my brain,” she sings.

That sounds stressful, hope you’re doing ok. When mj died, in the first couple of years it was hard seeing his peers/my favourites still releasing music while silenced for good ...but I learned to let go and hope you can get through this cause it’s like a special treat getting new music

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

I’m really warming up to God Control, it is settled in my brain from that wild mess of strings and phrases into a very disturbing yet hopeful message.

It sounds like a nursery rhyme u less you take the wake up message to imply social or political norms will only be modified to suit human needs by enlightening the children to those very issues versus sugarcoating or ignoring uncomfortable truths in favor of light entertainment, for instance. It’s a hustle, baby! It’s a con!

“Killers Who Are Partying” is becoming another favorite of mine.Mirwais is such an amazing producer! He likes to surprise the listener with beats that come out of nowhere and take the song to another level.Madonna should keep him around.

not sure why she gave the song such a ridiculous title,though lol

Yes she absolutely should, he’s part of the reason her first half of 00’s albums were fantastic

There seems to be a criticism in the “media” about her use of or the lack of proper melodies on Madame X. Maybe they’re not karaoke songs but it’s almost a treat to her group of weirdo fans that appeals to people that dig similar, unconventional approaches to popular music. I also wonder if as a lot of the more catchier riffs aren’t in English may be part of their issue. They could be nicer about it though! It’s refreshing to not have the bulk of the reviews trash the album or her this time around, really (yet?). The live show should be pretty cool, I’m excited to see how she integrates or alludes to her other songs.

At first listen I thought Medellín was garbage but it grew on me once I saw the billboard performance. There are definitely catchier tunes on the album, the melodies are strong on Mirwais material overall if you ask me and compliments the musical effects well

I heard a really good radio edit of this song.Not sure if it’s official.I love the “wake up” message.
