Today in Madonna History: August 5, 2022

On August 5 2022, Madonna and Saucy Santana released Material Gworrllllllll!. The collaboration/remix of Santana’s viral track, was inspired by Madonna’s original 1984 hit, Material Girl (from the Like a Virgin album). The official music video will be released on Monday August 8 2022.

More from Variety:

Rising rapper and internet phenomenon Saucy Santana has teamed with Madonna for the remix of his 2020 viral hit “Material Girl,” now retitled “Material Gworrllllllll!” The Queen of Pop first teased the collaboration on her Instagram account on August 4, sharing a snippet of the feisty chorus. “(Material girl) currently working on a Grammy,” Santana spits over electronic production that references Madonna’s seminal song. “Meanwhile, pussy poppin’ with ya man in Miami.”

The release comes after the unlikely duo joined forces at New York City Pride in June. Madonna, who still very much has her finger on the pulse of pop culture, invited Santana to share the Terminal 5 stage for a mash-up of “Material Girl” with her similarly-titled 1984 hit. It was an experience that left a lasting impression on the rapper. “I wish that I can have this moment for LIFE,” he wrote on Instagram, before profusely thanking the pop icon.

“These past weeks [with] you have been nothing short of amazing!” raved Santana, who also tapped Latto for a feature on his “Booty.” “I silently learned so many great things from you. Thank you for choosing me! A queer, fem, black boy [with] talent and vision I didn’t know God had for me.” It’s another step towards the mainstream for the social media fixture, who started in the industry as City Girls’ makeup artist before branching into rap with a series of viral hits. His version of “Material Girl” has already amassed more than 40 million streams on Spotify.

On March 15 2014, Madonna attended a Purim party dressed as Daenerys Targaryen, the Mother of Dragons, a fictional character from the Game of Thrones television series.

Madonna shared some photos of her costume on Instagram.

The cast from Game of Thrones reacted this way:

Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen):

“Oh my goodness. It’s insane. I thought I was asleep, I thought I was dreaming. It’s a huge moment. And, damn! She looks good.”

Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth):

“I got really, really excited. Madonna’s always been a favorite of mine. I love her strength and her transformative nature and the idea that she might be dressing up as a brilliant character in the TV show I’m in is pretty exciting.”

Kristian Nairn (Hodor):

“I kind of freaked out, slightly. That’s kind of a sign how big ‘Game of Thrones’ has got. The Queen of Pop is wearing a Daenerys costume. I completely freaked out.”

John Bradley (Samwell Tarly):

“She looks delighted, doesn’t she? Look at that. Things like this are just amazing. It’s when you know that you’re really kind of pressing the right kind of cultural buttons.”
