Here Are the Ingredients to Madonna’s New Release, A Possible “Frozen” Re-do 23 Years Later


Madonna is dropping a new single on Thursday night. It seems to be a remake of her 1998 hit, “Frozen.” It features 070 SHake aka Dani Moon aka Danielle Balbuena a 24 year old rapper singer from New Jersey who has worked with Kanye’s producer Mike Dean.

Is this like Elton John remaking his song “Sacrifice” with elements of “Rocket Man” and Dua Lipa? Maybe. That has turned out to be a winning formular.

Is there a formula here? Take these two songs and put them in a cocktail shaker and give the thing a fast few shakes. On Thursday night we’ll pour out the results.

PS Dani Moon was born the year before “Frozen” was released. FYI.
