Madonna is giving fans an intimate, behind-the-scenes look into the making of her latest album Madame X with the short documentary World of Madame X, released Wednesday (July 3).
The 23-minute documentary sees Madonna in Lisbon, Portugal, where the album was born while the megastar lived there for several years. She tells the story of how she was given the name Madame X when she was 19 years old and taking dance classes at the Martha Graham School just after arriving to New York.
“I came to Lisbon because of my son. Because of his passion for playing football. That’s how it all began,” Madonna says in a clip, donning several artful outfits and playing guitar. “I was a soccer mom.
“Whilst I was happy to be out of America, to look at the world from another point of view… I started to feel frustrated as an artist. And quite lonely,” she continued. “I didn’t really know anybody. I felt the same way when I came to New York.”
Additionally, there are two new Amazon Original remixes of Madame X tracks from Robbie Rivera and Erick Morillo. All fans have to do is say “Alexa play the Amazon Original by Madonna” on enabled devices and with Alexa in the Amazon Music app for iOS and Android.
The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, which marked another milestone in her legendary career, becoming her ninth No. 1 album.
The doc is available to watch exclusively via Amazon Prime Video, but you can watch a clip from it below.
