'Vulgar' is due to be released on June 9th.
Madonna is set to join Sam Smith on their upcoming single 'Vulgar'.
Smith took to social media to post a 15-second clip of the track which featured a black background with the words “SXM, ‘Vulgar’, June 9th, Sam and Madonna” flashing on the screen. The songs catchy dance beat was also featured, with both singers singing their own names.
Madonna also posted on her own socials what could potentially be the track's cover art. The photo showed a pair of tightly cinched black-and-white corsets underneath the duo’s initials — which were cheekily shortened to a simple “S&M.” “VULGAR…………. new song out Friday, June 9th @samsmith,” Madonna captioned the post.
The announcement was made a week after Smith began building up excitement for the track. On May 24th, the UK artist posted a looping audio clip of the pair singing “Sam and Madonna.”

Later the same day, Smith followed up that teaser with a tweet that signified they would have potentially debut the track that night at their Manchester show. The tweet was an image that read: “Manchester, we’ve got a surprise for you this evening. ‘Unholy’ won’t be the last song….”
Unfortunately, it is unclear whether the two teasers were linked as Smith had to cancel their gig at Manchester’s AO Arena in the evening after suffering vocal issues.
Madonna herself is set to kick off her upcoming ‘Celebration Tour’, which will see the pop pioneer embark on over 35 dates globally, to mark 40 years in music.
The tour will begin in Vancouver, Canada, on July 15, and be followed by shows in North America that span until early October. From there, the singer will touch down for a series of European shows in cities including Antwerp, Copenhagen, Barcelona, Paris and Amsterdam.
