Madonna’s iconic artistry and discography continues to inspire all genders and races, as evidenced by the music video release of “Rescue Me”, covered by Lovari, from his recent album “Moment Of Love”. The original track, written and produced by Madonna and Shep Pettibone, was first introduced as one of two new songs on Madonna’s greatest hits album “The Immaculate Collection”. Released as a single in 1991, “Rescue Me” debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 at #15, the highest charting debut for a song released by a female artist at the time. Since then, there have been some songs that gave debuted higher, including at #1, but during that time Madonna and The Beatles (“Let It Be”, #6) held that title.
Speaking about the track, Lovari explains, “Rescue Me’s lyrics come across as having the ability to be presented multifacetedly as a poem or sonnet, as a dialogue of an intimate conversation between two people, or as a song. To me, it’s a brutally honest deep examination of a person’s self emotional reaction to their romantic partner.”
Madonna revived the track as an interlude on her recent Madame X world tour. Lovari as been performing is version on his recent Moment Of Love promo tour.
The music video, shot entirely while in quarantine, co-stars and is directed by Offspring Mysterious, a NJ based dance artist with a YouTube series.
