Madonna has given many hit songs to the music industry and now she is experienced enough to recognize talent. The ‘Like a Virgin’ crooner invited Kanye West to join her for three songs from her new album Rebel Heart. It appears that Madonna is quite impressed with Kanye.
She said to New York Daily News, “Kanye is the new Madonna. Kanye is the black Madonna. We know, and recognize, that we have that in common. We’re comrades in the envelope-pushing genre.”
She added, “There’s a lot of reminiscing on this album. I’ve been doing what I’ve been doing for over three decades, so in many ways I feel like a survivor. I see that many of my peers, and friends, and people I collaborated with are no longer with us. That gave me pause. I said, ‘Wow, I can’t believe I made it this far.’ That was a catalyst for me.”
