Madonna - "La Isla Bonita"

Diplo has lately been putting in some studio work with Madonna, which is a pretty cool thing to have on your resume. During one of those sessions, he apparently convinced her to record a new version of “La Isla Bonita,” the 1987 hit that’s right up there with “Open Your Heart” and “Burning Up” and “Frozen” on the “Tom’s favorite Madonna songs” list. This time around, Diplo had her singing over a vaguely dancehall version of the original’s vaguely Spanish beat, and the opening line is different, too: “Last night, I dreamed of Major Lazer.” Diplo had the track pressed up on an exclusive dubplate and played its opening for the BBC DJ Annie Mac, and she freaked out accordingly. Watch video evidence below.

Really, though, is there anyone who would rather dream of Major Lazer than San Pedro?
