Madonna’s single with Lil Wayne, “Revolver,” has finally landed in its full form. In the past several months, variations of the Celebration song leaked, but now the official version is out.
“My love’s a revolver,” [artist id="1098"]Madonna[/artist] sings on the sugary ditty. “My sex is a killer/ Do you wanna die happy?”
Guest-verse sniper Weezy F. Baby comes in later and gives himself loads of big-ups when it comes to the women. “Bang/ The shooting name is Wayne,” he raps. “The victim didn’t complain, she just screamed, ‘Shoot again’/ I gave her extra rounds/ My barrel twist around/ I am Mr. Shoot ‘Em Down/ I leave hearts on the ground.”
This “revolver” shouldn’t be confused with Lil Wayne’s Cool & Dre-produced “Hot Revolver,” which leaked from the Rebirth recording sessions.
“Revolver” appears on Madonna’s upcoming greatest-hits collection Celebration, which is due September 29. The project includes some of her most memorable smashes, including “Justify My Love,” “Borderline,” “Lucky Star” and “Papa Don’t Preach.”
A video for the compilation’s title track premiered in the iTunes music store at the beginning of the month. It is directed by Jonas Åkerlund, who helped shepherd her back to respectability with his hyperkinetic 1998 video for “Ray of Light,” and features cameos by Madge’s boyfriend (model/DJ Jesus Luz) and daughter (Lourdes, who makes a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it appearance toward the end).
