Time Out says
Madame X, the 14th studio album from Madonna, casts the 60-year-old Queen of Pop as a secret agent, taking on different guises and identities as she travels across the world—a concept that will undoubtably serve as an excuse for a cavalcade of costume changes during live performances. Crafted in the wake of Madge's recent move to Lisbon, Portugal, her latest record oozes with the trendy sounds of Latin pop, including the sultry lead single "Medellín" featuring Columbian singer Maluma. Collaborations with rappers Quavo and Swae Lee suggest that Madonna will also be dabbling in some trap-tinged tunes, which seem destined to rank among her most desperate attempts at cultural relevancy (remember the EDM bangers from her last few records?). Thank goodness that she has multiple decades worth of classic pop songs to fall back on.
