Listen to a preview of Madonna’s “Superstar” after the jump.
Continuing with the trend of spunky upbeat club tracks as evidenced by the cheerleader pep of “Give Me All Your Luvin’” and dubby pop of “I’m Addicted,” “Superstar” sees Madonna reeling off a deliciously head-spinning string of historical allusions over lush layers of “Ooh la las.” There Professor Madonna goes again, teachin’ us a thing or two about history! “You’re my gangster, you’re like Al Capone/ You’re like Caesar, stepping onto the throne/ You’re Abe Lincoln, cause you fight for what’s right/ You’re my angel, bringing peace to my life.” Gangsters and angels? Someone’s been watching “Dance Moms”!
With ebullient synths and sweetly sentimental vocals, “Superstar” is a luminously gorgeous addition to the growing catalog of major Madge tracks. Get us a convertible and some California sunshine stat so we can drive off into the distance with this on full blast. Ooh la la, indeed!
