Keep slaying, Madonna.
It might be the Queen of Pop’s 60th birthday, but it’s her who’s giving away a gift, as she’s just shared a professional recording of her full MET Gala 2018 performance, which took place at The Metropolitan Museum Of Art in New York City this May.
As she descends a staircase flanked by a choir of monks, Madonna belts out her signature hit Like A Prayer, before launching into a preview of a brand new track called Beautiful Game, which we’re assuming is taken from her upcoming 14th album.
“It’s a beautiful plan, but I’m not concerned / It’s a beautiful game, that I never learned / You have taught me to shut my mouth, that I not get burned / Keep your beautiful lies, ‘cause I’m not concerned,” she sings over an industrial beat.
The performance ends with a cover of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah, giving the living legend a chance to show off her underrated vocal talent, which earned a brilliant reaction from the audience.
“In celebration of my birthday and as a ‘thank you’ for all your donations on my Birthday Fundraiser, I wanted to share a very special performance from this year’s Met Gala,” she wrote on social media.
