The man behind Madonna's next single 'Girls Gone Wild' has revealed how the track came about.

The track will be the second cut from the pop megastar's forthcoming album 'MDNA', and A&R executive Patrick Moxey has now revealed how he masterminded the track. It is the fruits of two Italian producers and a Canadian writer, all signed to Moxey's label Ultra Music.

Moxey told Billboard: "Obviously it’s huge for us. We have both the producer and the top-line writer; that’s 100% share."

The track is produced by Benny Benassi, best known for his 2003 hit 'Satisfaction', a robotic take on The Rolling Stones' track of the same name, along with his cousin Ale Benassi. Moxey reckoned that his aggressive style would "work well with some of the major American superstar artists".

The top-line melody was then written by Vancouver-based Jenson Vaughan, who has previously worked with Kelly Rowland and Snoop Dogg. Moxey said: "I was really attracted to his lyrics, and I feel Benassi in my bones, because those bass-driven tracks are so inspiring. It's a bit like cooking, like, 'Ooh, what would this sound like together?'"

He added: "A brilliant way to have hits is to create hits. When you have very talented people around you, you just make introductions, and maybe give them some direction. It’s the essence of the A&R process, but it’s so natural – it's not contrived."

Elsewhere on the album 'Ray Of Light' producer William Orbit has produced five tracks and disco house hero Martin Solveig has worked on four, with another track from the Benassi cousins, 'I'm Addicted', also making the cut.

‘MDNA’ is released on March 26. Listen to a portion of ‘Girls Gone Wild’ as part of a megamix below.
