The moment Madonna and Maluma get to Brooklyn’s Caribbean Social Club in Williamsburg, they ignite a frenzy. Both arrive around 8 p.m. on a swampy August night at the 48-year-old neighborhood gem lovingly known as Toñita’s, Madonna fresh from her 63rd birthday celebration in Italy’s southern region of Puglia and Maluma before rehearsals for his Papi Juancho tour. Throngs of neighbors, regulars, and fans crowd along Grand Street, drinks in hand. They blast music - including several Madonna hits - and try to get a glimpse of the stars through the doors of the club. Inside, Madonna (who chose the venue) and Maluma kick off a five-hour photo shoot while blaring Wizkid over the sound system. An older woman watches with delight and taps her giant gold rings against a domino table; she’s none other than Toñita herself, the club owner, who has been asked to be in a few photos.

Documentary on Madonna’s Madame X tour gets UK release date

A documentary offering a glimpse into the life of Madonna and her work on the road will debut this week.

The Queen of Pop’s highly anticipated film, titled Madame X, captures her tour in support of her recent album of the same name.

The documentary, which was filmed in Lisbon, Portugal, will premiere on MTV UK at 10pm on Friday.

Madonna, 63, said: “Sharing my vision with global audiences has been profoundly meaningful to me. The opportunity to bring its message and the incandescent artistry of all involved to an even wider audience comes at a time when music is so deeply needed to remind us of the sacred bond of our shared humanity.”

The seven-time Grammy winner posted a teaser of the documentary to her Instagram on Tuesday which showed clips of the artist in extravagant costumes surrounded by dramatic staging and dancers performing alluring routines.

The pop superstar toured from 2019 to 2020 across Europe and North America in her persona as Madame X, but had to cancel numerous shows due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The tour is said to take “viewers on a journey as compelling and audacious as Madonna’s fearless persona Madame X, a secret agent travelling around the world, changing identities, fighting for freedom and bringing light to dark places”, according to a press release.
