Following the tease and subsequent release of the first single from her Madame X album, Madonna has reveals yet another title, “I Rise.”

The mid-tempo, Auto-tuned and anthemic number features inspirational lyrics, as well as an audio sample from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting survivor Emma González. “There’s nothing you can do to me that hasn’t been done,” the 60-year-old Grammy winner sings. “Not bulletproof, shouldn’t have to run from a gun/River of tears ran dry, let ’em run/No game that you can play with me, I ain’t one.”

Of the song, Madonna stated: “I wrote ‘I Rise’ as a way of giving a voice to all marginalized people who feel they don’t have the opportunity to speak their mind. This year is the 50th anniversary of Pride and I hope this song encourages all individuals to be who they are, to speak their minds and to love themselves.” Listen to the empowering Interscope Records-released recording here.

Madame X, Madonna’s 14th full-length studio album, will drop June 14th. “I Rise” is the second track to appear from the effort, following “Medellín,” featuring Maluma. Stay tuned for more regarding the highly-anticipated project.
