Were you seen at Beaches WeHo on Thursday, June 13, for the Madonna Madame X official album launch party? Promoter, Community Organizer and founder of DIVA: Diverse and Inclusive Visionary Artists, Nelson Melegrito, hosted the event to celebrate the Queen of Pop’s latest musical incarnation.
DJ Josh Peace spun a night of Madonna’s dance tracks with projectors flashing some great M music videos and footage that chronicles some of the most memorable moments in M’s career. Beaches WeHo offered drink specials to commemorate Madame X. The Medellin drink included Cazadores Blanco Tequila, agave, Tripple Sec, lime juice and rose water. The Crave drink included Tito’s, Monin Lavender Syrup and fresh lemonade.
“I have decided to host this event because first and foremost I am a big fan–shocker, right?” Melegrito told WEHO TIMES. “I felt after her heartfelt and touching speech at the iconic NYC Stonewall Inn and her GLAAD award speech and now the just announced World Pride appearance, the timing is perfect. The release of her new album and the release party is our way of paying tribute to her myriad of contributions to the LGBT and other marginalized community. It’s a celebration indeed.”
Madonna fans and the friends who love them showed up at Beaches WeHo on a Thursday school night decked in M apparel. People crowded the bar, bobbed their head to the music from their stools and created their own dance space in the upstairs area.
Some lucky fans walked away that night with M calendars, CDs, posters and official Madame X stickers. Madonna Madame X merchandise was courtesy of Live Nation/Interscope Records. Madame X is the upcoming fourteenth studio album by the Queen of Pop Madonna. It is scheduled to be released on June 14, 2019, on Interscope Records. The album follows Rebel Heart and its first single “Medellín” was released on April 17, 2019.
