We can reveal some new exclusive details about the song “Veni Vidi Vici”.
If you thought you were done with Madonna rapping, think again!
In each verse of “Veni Vidi Vici” Madonna sort of raps with a low voice while keeping a certain flow. It’s very different than the “American Life” rap though. The chorus is where the acoustic guitar kicks in, giving it a pop vibe.
Madonna also does her own backing vocals as she starts singing on top of the rap voice halfway through each verse of Veni Vidi Vici.
We can reveal that this is the song Diplo referred to in the BBC Radio interview with Zane Lowe…
We had one song that’s kind of a retrospective record, with lyrics from her career and news reports from her [from the last 30 years.]
Veni Vedi Vici is a reflective pop/hip-hop song in which Madonna reminisces on her past years as an artist and a person.
In the verses, Madonna raps gently, using song titles from her past, as lyrics.
“I took a Holiday”… “I got Into the Groove”… “Music saved my life”… and carries on citing or referring to “Borderline”, “Vogue”, “Express Yourself”, “Justify my love”, “Ray of Light”, “Music” and even “The Power of Good-Bye”.
Madonna tells us “I came, I saw, I conquer” (Veni Vidi Vici) in a truly lovely pop-oriented chorus… definitely the best part of the song.
