She's still Madonna. The Queen of Pop debuted her hyped new "Bitch I'm Madonna" music video on Wednesday, June 17, and the visuals made a huge splash despite multiple issues with its release.
The star-studded video was first scheduled to premiere on Tuesday, but was bumped to Wednesday as the "Vogue" singer, 56, tweeted to fans that she was working to make the clip "perfect for all of you."
The video successfully made its way online on Wednesday, but not without further problems. A part-owner in Tidal, Madonna premiered "Bitch I'm Madonna" exclusively on the streaming service, but the platform cut off the visuals after just over three minutes. More than two hours after the video was posted, the official Tidal Twitter was responding to complaining fans, writing that the company was "working on it" and hoping to find a fix soon.
The shaky release did not, however, keep Madonna from trending on Twitter on Wednesday morning and showing off her lineup of celebrity besties in the heavily ripped video. Madge previously teased the inclusion of Beyonce, Katy Perry, Rita Ora, Nicki Minaj, and Miley Cyrus in "Bitch I'm Madonna," but more stars make surprise appearances in the wild music video.
The Grammy winner opens "Bitch I'm Madonna" twerking in a neon, animal print outfit, accompanied by an army of little girl backup dancers. Mirroring the choreography from her April Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon performance, she goes on to make out with a male model, walk by two naked women in a tub wearing pasties, and work it on her dancers.
Chris Rock enters the clip for a brief moment, facing the camera and mouthing, "Bitch, I'm Madonna." The comedian is joined by Diplo, Alexander Wang, and even Kanye West, who also mime the lyrics to the Rebel Heart track.
"Bitch I'm Madonna," which is expected to make a full, non-Tidal release in the coming hours, is currently available in its incomplete form on YouTube and above.
