Here’s what the lyrics to Madonna’s ‘Medellín’ translate to

So now you know...

A full translation of Madonna’s ‘Medellín’ is now available, meaning fans can now fully understand what the Queen of Pop’s latest song is all about.

Yesterday (April 17), Madonna released ‘Medellín’ and revealed details of her highly anticipated new album, ‘Madame X’ – her first album in four years.

In her new cha-cha inspired song, Madonna sings about a dream she had of being 17-years-old. Madge finds herself in Colombia before Latin artist Maluma reassures her she is safe and can be found in his hometown – Medellin.

The song then takes a turn as Maluma tells Madonna he will travel with her, protect her and love her if she agrees to be his queen.

You can read the full translation, as printed originally in Billboard here:

Verse 1: Madonna & Maluma
I took a pill and had a dream (Me too)
I went back to my 17th year
Allowed myself to be naive (Tell me)
To be someone I’ve never been (I love it)
I took a sip and had a dream
And I woke up in Medellín (Do you like it?)
The sun was caressing my skin (Tell me)
Another me could now begin (Woo)

Verse 2: Maluma
Relax, baby, I got you
We don’t have to talk much to get things started
If you want to be my queen, I’ll crown you
And here’s a throne for you to take a seat
You like to ride, that’s clear
If you feel that I’m going fast, I’ll take it down a notch
Excuse me, I know you’re Madonna
But I’ll show you how this dog makes you fall in love

Chorus: Madonna & Maluma
Come with me, let’s take a trip
I’ll take you to a far away place
Come with me, I’ll be so good for you
You’ll fall for me, You’ll fall for me, mami (Ay-ay-ay)
Come with me, let’s take a trip
Give me some of what you’re drinking
Come with me, I’ll be so good for you
(Ay-ay-ay)

Verse 3: Madonna & Maluma
Sipping my pain just like champagne
Found myself dancing in the rain with you
I felt so naked and alive (Show me)
For once I didn’t have to hide myself (Say it)

Verse 4: Maluma
Hey mamacita, what’s wrong? (Tell me)
We’re already at my place (Yeah)
If you feel that there’s a trip in your mine (woo)
Maybe it’s because of the Aguardiente (tell them)
But baby, relax, enjoy the moment
We are in Colombia, there’s a party in every corner
And if you want, we’ll go to Detroit (You know)
If I know where you come from, then I know where to go

Chorus

Post-Chorus: Maluma & Madonna
You’ll fall for me (If I fall for you)
In less than a year, no, no (Hahaha)
We’re going, we’re going to Medallo (Oh, how sweet)
You’ll fall for me (If I fall for you)
It’s what I love, no, no
Then mami, mami, mami, we’ll get married
(Cha-cha-cha)

Verse 5: Madonna & Maluma
We built a cartel just for love
Venus was hovering above us (Oh, yeah)
I took a trip, it set me free (My queen)
Forgave myself for being me (Ay-ay-ay)

According to a press release, ‘Madame X’ was inspired creatively by Madonna residing in Portugal over the past several years. It states that the 15-track record is made up of songs “that celebrate Madonna’s career-long affair with Latin music and culture as well as other global influences.”

“Lisbon is where my record was born,” Madonna said. “I found my tribe there and a magical world of incredible musicians that reinforced my belief that music across the world is truly all connected and is the soul of the universe.”

The official video for ‘Medellín’ will be premiered as part of the MTV Presents Madonna Live special, set to air on April 24. Madonna will join British DJ Trevor Nelson live from London for a conversation about the influences and creative forces behind the LP. Fans will be able to tune in at 9pm (BST). 

Meanwhile, Madonna has been confirmed to perform at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. Last week, representatives for Madonna confirmed to NME that she’ll be performing two songs at the final on May 18 in Tel Aviv.
