NEWS PROVIDED BY
“Levitating” feat. Madonna and Missy Elliott Remixed by The Blessed Madonna is out today, taken from "Club Future Nostalgia” – an entirely remixed version of her global #1 album “Future Nostalgia”, created in collaboration with The Blessed Madonna. The album is due for release on Friday August 28th.
Dua said ‘I decided to take the party up a notch with the incomparable The Blessed Madonna, who secretly helped me to craft the mixtape that would become “Club Future Nostalgia” and the absolute queens Missy Elliott and Madonna joined me for an epic remix of “Levitating”’
On working on the single, The Blessed Madonna says “It is no overstatement to say that reimagining Dua’s amazing record, Levitating with Madonna and Missy Elliott was my dream come true. That’s a phrase that is overused, but in this case, it is absolutely literal. I thought a lot about what it would mean to enter the “Duaverse” and make a dance classic that we would both be proud of equally. I wanted this to stand the test of time and straddle the things I love about underground electronic music and perfect pop music. It was strange to work completely alone and in total secrecy on something that has been the most special and ultimately public experience of my life. I think being in a world where there were no clubs, allowed me to create a record for the dance floor that only lived on my mind. Being a part of this was not only an honour but the very best medicine for dancing feet that are stuck at home. I hope it lifts up the spirits of everyone that hears it, as much as it has lifted mine. Truly, I am levitating”.
The album features many of Dua’s musical heroes and heroines, including the truly iconic
Missy Elliott comments “I am humbly grateful that Dua asked me to be a part of this record because I am a fan of her work and I love the whole 80’s vibes that her music gives. When her team sent the track, I was like “ooooh this is fire!” and I immediately recorded my verse. She heard it and loved it and here we are!”
“Club Future Nostalgia” will be available on all DSPs.
