The Weeknd just released the track “Popular,” featuring Madonna and Playboi Carti, from his upcoming show The Idol. But he says one song with Madonna just isn’t enough — he wants to do a whole album.
“I mean, the thing is, I’ve always wanted to work with her,” he tells Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1. “I’ve always wanted to write and produce a Madonna album … well, co-produce with her, of course … because she’s a visionary and she has such a singular vision, and I just want to come into her world and create a classic Madonna album.”

He also promises we’ll hear more of Madonna in The Idol. The show premieres June 4 on Max.
