El disco te parece que es:

La canción cuenta con un videoclip dirigido por Emmanuel Adjei, estrenado el 19 de julio de 2019. Rodado en la costa de Lisboa, Portugal, y protagonizado por la orquesta femenina Orquestra Batukadeiras.

Inspirado en el estilo musical Batuque, original de las mujeres de Cabo Verde. Condenado por la iglesia como un acto de rebelión, a las esclavas se les prohibió tocar los tambores. Pero estas inspiradores y poderosas mujeres continuaron cantando y bailando preservando el Batuque hasta la actualidad.

Madonna comenta: "Fuimos a un pequeño club que estaba en mitad de la nada donde había un círculo de mujeres sentadas en sillas tocando tambores. Empezaron a tocar y fueron turnándose para interpretar solos en Criollo y bailar. Me resultó tan inspirador que solicité poder colaborar con ellas. Aceptaron y acabamos en el estudio grabando en directo 'Batuka', que es una canción de llamada y respuesta. Ha sido una experiencia religiosa, una celebración de la vida".
