Madonna and Swae Lee unveiled a moody new clip for their collaboration, “Crave,” which will appear on the singer’s upcoming album, Madame X, out June 14th.
Directed by Nuno Xico, the “Crave” clip opens with Madonna reciting a spoken word piece, culminating with her releasing a bird from the roof of a New York City housing block. The bird motif sticks around throughout the rest of the video as Madonna and Swae Lee perform the track, eventually coming together on the roof by the end of the clip.
“Crave” is the third Madame X offering following “I Rise” and “Medellín,” which features Colombian singer Maluma. Madame X follows Madonna’s 2015 album Rebel Heart and will feature additional collaborations with Migos’ Quavo and Brazilian singer Anitta.
