Beyonce, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and Kanye West all make cameo appearances in the video for 'Bitch, I'm Madonna,' off her latest album 'Rebel Heart.'
Madonna released the video initially on Tidal, where it will appear exclusively for one day before wider distribution.
But a number of users reported technical problems, saying that the video froze up when they first tried to watch.
'We apologize to all the fans excited to watch the #BitchImMadonna video, we're working on a fix,' said a Tidal message on Twitter before later reporting smoother streaming.
Tidal - led by rap mogul Jay-Z with participation of Madonna and other stars - has promoted exclusives in a bid to win subscribers.
But despite a splashy launch on March 30, Tidal trails more established players in the growing field of streaming, led by Spotify.
The video - which also features hip-hop star Nicki Minaj, who collaborated on the song originally - depicts a party atmosphere and was shot at the Standard High Line, a hotel in New York's Meatpacking District known for its nightclub with a jacuzzi overlooking the city.
'Bitch, I'm Madonna' also includes rare appearances by two of the Material Girl's four children, 14-year-old Rocco and nine-year-old David.

The Girls Just Want To Have Fun singer appears on tonight's Graham Norton Show, where fellow guest Mark Wahlberg discussed how he has come to see the funny side of being so often confused with fellow actor Matt Damon.
Lauper, who has a very distinctive, high-pitched New York accent, said: 'It happens to me once in a while. I just sign Madonna. I don't care and as long as I don't talk I get away with it.'
The Time After Time singer and Madonna were pitted against each other as pop rivals during the 1980s.
Lauper and Wahlberg are joined on Norton's red sofa by Family Guy and Ted creator Seth MacFarlane and presenter Dara O Briain.
The Graham Norton Show airs on BBC1 at 10.35pm.

The singer is due to premiere her 'Bitch, I’m Madonna' clip soon and it will feature the likes of Beyoncé and Katy Perry.
Another star set to make an appearance is Rita Ora, who previously modelled Madonna's Material Girl line.
Speaking to On Demand Entertainment, the 'Hot Right Now' star said that she was under strict orders not to divulge details of the video.
Ora said: 'She’s the queen! Well for me there’s two, there’s Beyoncé and then there’s Madonna. I did her Material Girl campaign a few years ago. So when I first met her I couldn’t feel my feet, but she’s one of the nicest, coolest, most work-driven people I’ve ever met.'
'To be a part of this kind of video it’s awesome. [I won't reveal any details because] I do not want Queen Madge coming up to me and telling me off!'
'At the beginning we were all on the same page and then...I wasn't....happy with the final product,' he said.
Avicii's version of the song leaked early. He says he still prefers his version over the final cut Madonna eventually released. 'I thought it was better. It was more me,' he said.
Despite butting heads, Avicii isn't on a mission to diss the Queen of Pop. After the Daily Star published their article with the original headline 'Madonna ruined my track: Avicii slams the Queen of Pop,' the deejay quickly took to social media to blast the tabloid
And it worked! The site softened their headline to 'LISTEN: ‘My demos were better' Hear Avicii on Madonna's latest album.' Avicii thanked the Daily Star for correcting their story. 'Thank you @daily_star for correcting the headline - and rest of article - after hearing the actual audio recording of the interview!' he wrote on Instagram.
Good to know there's no bad blood here.
Meanwhile, Avicii did reveal to the Daily Star who he would like to work with next. 'I'd love to work with Adele and Rihanna,' he said. 'I'm super excited for Rihanna's record, I haven't heard any of it yet either. She is one of the most talented artists of our time.'
From E! Online
Rumours began last year that the British dance duo were working with the pop star after Madonna posted a picture of herself with the pair backstage at the Governors Ball festival in New York during June 2014. While Disclosure denied that they were producing Madonna's next album ('Rebel Heart', which was released in March), they didn't at the time rule out a potential collaboration with the singer in the future.
Now, speaking to NME in this week's issue, available digitally and on newsstands now, the electronic duo explained that they 'did discuss maybe working together' but '[we] never really got our hopes up'.
'We never really had any indication that we were going to be working together,' Howard Lawrence said. 'We met her and hung out and she's a lovely person and she's a fan - and I mean, who's not a fan of Madonna? We did discuss maybe working together one day but we never tried to put dates in or anything like that. But I wouldn't say we were disappointed because we never really got our hopes up.'
The party will be the Official Rebel Heart European Tour Launch – taking place the week before Madonna kicks off the second leg of the Rebel Heart World Tour this side of the Atlantic.

Today, we celebrate the 25th anniversary of that unusual Canadian controversy.
On May 29, 1990, Madonna was preparing to take the stage for the third night at Toronto's SkyDome on her Blond Ambition Tour. Right around that time, her crew received a visit from officers who threatened to arrest the Queen of Pop for her salacious onstage simulation. Christopher Ciccone, who was assisting his sister on tour at the time, relayed the message to Madonna, explaining 'a representative from the D.A.'s office' was worried about her 'immoral live performance.'
Her response? 'I’m not changing my fucking show.'

Name: Madonna Louise Ciccone
Estimated Net Worth: $520 million
Source: Music, Clothing, Real Estate
Summary: One of the top pop divas of all time. Her tours have grossed an estimated $1.2 billion over the years, including $305 million from her 2012 MDNA tour. That helped her earn an estimated $125 million during the ensuing 12-month period during which FORBES calculated celebrity earnings, more than any other musician. Look for another bump when she goes on the road with her latest album, Rebel Heart, in August.

The pop songstress will be ensconced there for the summer. The estate comes with a pool and spa.
'Madonna has already been out here on weekends, riding her horses on her 58 acres,' a spy says. But don’t expect to see her hanging out at Candy Kitchen or any of the fancier joints in town. 'She never goes out. She’s so happy in her house that she never leaves,' the spy said.
From New York Post
The Material Girl hitmaker has eight boutique gym locations around the world and she is now partnering up with her manager Guy Oseary and bosses at New Evolution Ventures and Epic Rights to expand the brand into retail products, according to Billboard.com.
Head of Epic Rights' Celebrity & Lifestyle division Dan Levin says, 'We wanted to bring the brand to the public so if they never have a chance to join a Hard Candy Fitness club, you can still experience the Hard Candy Fitness workout wherever you are, and have the best-in-class tools. As Madonna is to music, pop culture and fashion, we believe Hard Candy Fitness will be the preeminent symbol for a fit, healthy and luxury-infused lifestyle.'
Epic Rights will reveal more details to potential partners at the 2015 Licensing Expo in Las Vegas June 9 to 11.
The singer is also looking to expand her fitness centres into Asia and the U.S. in 2016.
Allotted just $5,000 by Warner Bros. Records to create what was initially slated as a B-side, he finished the song in three weeks, recording the then-31-year-old pop star's vocals in a 'basement on West 56th Street' in New York, where, he says, a closet had been converted into a vocal booth.
Released as an A-side, 'Vogue' topped the Hot 100 on May 19, 1990. Madonna and Pettibone also collaborated on the singer's 1992 No. 1 ballad, 'This Used to Be My Playground,' but Pettibone left the music business in the late '90s and now owns The Empress Hotel and Paradise Nightclub in Asbury Park, N.J.
A source told The Sun newspaper: 'It's an incredible coup for Rita to do a vid with Madonna and shows how big she is becoming in the States. They met at showbiz events but had a real connection so Madonna asked her to do it. Rita changed her schedule to be able to do it in an instant.'
The two stars bonded when Rita defended Madonna over the abuse she was receiving for grabbing Drake and kissing him onstage at Coachella Music Festival.
At the time, the 'How We Do' singer posted a picture of Madonna practically naked in a '90s photoshoot on Instagram, and wrote: 'Thank you for fighting all these ageist battles and paving a way, that maybe just one day, all of us 'Younger' artists won't have too in the future! @madonna #ifuckinlovethisbitch #thatshwhatlegendsdo (sic)'.
The 'Vogue' star then took to her Instagram page to thank Rita for her support.
Madonna wrote: 'Thanks Rita! Good to know you appreciate the beating I'm taking so all you ladies don't have to endure this kind of discrimination! #unapolgeticbitches unite! #rebelheart (sic)'.
'You Cant Touch This....#bitchimmadonna 🔥🔥🔥. Boom boom boom'
The Queen of Pop is now unequaled chart royalty. Madonna makes momentous Billboard chart history, as she now has the most No. 1s ever, 45, by an act on a singular Billboard chart. She earns her 45th No. 1 on Dance Club Songs, where 'Ghosttown' lifts 3-1.
(The chart, dated May 30, will refresh on Billboard.com Thursday, May 21.)
With the coronation, Madonna passes another icon, George Strait, who's logged 44 No. 1s on Hot Country Songs.
'Thanks to all my fans on and off the dancefloor,' Madonna said in an exclusive statement to Billboard. 'I'll (always) be your partner.'
With her 45th leader on Dance Club Songs, which measures reports submitted by a national sample of club DJs, Madonna pulls further ahead of runners-up Beyonce and Rihanna. In fact, Madonna has tallied more No. 1s as they have combined: 22 each. (The chart launched as a national survey in the Billboard issue dated Aug. 28, 1976.)
Madonna bests Strait (still, and always, the King of Country), who's sent 44 singles to No. 1 on Hot Country Songs between 1982 and 2009. He first reigned with 'Fool Hearted Memory' (Aug. 28, 1982) and most recently ruled with 'River of Love' (April 18, 2009).

He told i-D magazine: 'I'm kind of interested in this Madonna record.'
'She looks hotter than ever. I'd also like to let it be known that I still have a crush on Madonna and I would definitely fornicate with her.'
Madonna replied to Marilyn's complimentary remarks by sharing a photo of him and his quote on Instagram with the caption: 'Um.........thanks! @marilynmanson #rebelheart'
'Part of why she was wearing our graffiti dress was to honor Keith,' said Jeremy Scott, the Moschino creative director who collaborated with the superstar for the Met Gala. 'We custom-made her gown to say Rebel Heart - and it’s definitely fitting to wear it while celebrating him.'
Happy Birthday, Mr. Haring. You sure inspired a winner (and changed the world, too).
From Yahoo! Style
I praise Madonna a lot. I know that annoys some of you. Sorry! But I’ve also laced that praise with criticism, or at least my idea of what she might do, or say (or not say) or wear. I admire the fact that she has never taken my advice. Or anyone’s. She has traveled to the beat of her own techno-music.
But sometimes she’s perfect. I do mean her appearance at the massive Met Fashion Gala the other night in NYC. There she was, with long straight hair (gone are the overworked waves), beautiful makeup, and a stylish, whimsical, subtly sexy black gown by the designer Moschino. (Well, it was more subtle than a lot of what The Big M wears. It was certainly more subtle than Beyonce's get-up.) Totally appropriate for the pop goddess she is, and always will be. (Haters, listen up - even if she never has another No. 1 hit, she’ll always be the Queen. Accept that.)
When I saw the photos I wanted to reach in, hand her a microphone and say, 'Sing out, Madonna Louise Ciccone - croon those ballads. Do your Dietrich!' Well, that’s my fantasy and problem. It will never be Madonna’s reality. But I am satisfied she looked like this for the Met event. She also looked like she was having fun. (Still rare for this workaholic.)
People - even so-called 'fans' - often say she’s desperate to stay in touch with the youth culture. I think she simply enjoys composing and performing edgy material. She likes collaborating with young people. I believe she enjoys the music she makes. If she was 'desperate' for a certain kind of approbation, she’d work on an album of standards. Or a 'Duets' disc. Not. Going. To. Happen.
Privately, as a woman, she has changed. As an artist? Same as 1983. And if you can’t see it, you don’t know your Madonna.

'Ghosttown' again is the 'Greatest Gainer' of the week. For the 3rd week in a row!

The 'Material Girl' hitmaker showed just as much cleavage as the 'I Kissed A Girl' singer in their graffiti-inspired outfits at The Metropolitan Museum of Art's 2015 Costume Institute Benefit in New York City to celebrate the opening of the China: Through the Looking Glass exhibition.
Madonna's floor-length dress, which came with a black cape, was covered in white writing which spelt out the name of her latest album 'Rebel Heart' and was completed by a pair of black leather gloves and a gold Moschino belt which she wore across her shoulder.
The 'Roar' singer's dress was covered in more colourful graffiti style writing.
Katy also unveiled a new short, cropped hair-do on the red carpet.
When asked what the inspiration for the pixie cut was, she said: 'I asked for the Kris Jenner.'
After the event Madonna, 56, and Katy, 30, were joined by fellow pop mistress Lady GaGa.
Katy posted a selfie on Instagram of the three of them and almost broke the internet, with a caption that suggested they would be releasing a track together.
The caption read: 'dropping our single tomorrow #stolethispicfromM #MONSTERCATREBELHEARTS. (sic)'
However, it was just a joke and there is no single coming out.
Both Katy and Madonna have had feuds with the 'Born This Way' singer in the past, but the Instagram post suggested they have put their issues behind them.
Both the 'Rebel Heart' singer and 'Fireworks' hitmaker attended the exclusive event with dates. Designer Jeremy Scott joined Katy, while Madonna came with music producer Diplo.
But now, it looks like Madge is the one who is dishing out the disses when it comes to that kiss.
The singer was participating in an interactive online chat (filmed in her bathroom while she drank wine and ate pizza, mind you) when fans started asking her about the infamous smooch.
One fan has submitted the 'million dollar question' (as Madonna put it), asking the Living For Love singer whether Drake was a good kisser. Her response? 'I kissed a girl, and I liked it.'
But her bizarre comments didn’t end there.
Later on in the segment, the 56-year-old was asked what advice she would give to her younger self.
'Don’t kiss Drake, no matter how many times he begs you to,' she said, while refilling her wine glass.
From Yahoo! Music
Our queen Madonna does her AskAnythingChat from where? What's her main motto in life? Did she just eat some pizza?
Madonna decided to use him after seeing a design he made a local Bullfighter Paulita, one of his regular customers. A black and white image with a suit that he had prepared for the Feria del Pilar's in October 2014.
From that snapshot, which received the go-ahead personally by the singer, several pieces were commissioned through the web: a cloak that had to be black, with red and black flowers and the M of its initial embroidered on it, shoulder straps and suspenders for the dancers. Many of his pieces also have the letters R. H. on the back.
