MADELIN DROPS "ROXELANA" REMIXED BY MAXO

May 9, 2018

 

Madeline Mondrala grew up in Los Angeles, California and had the musical bug since she was young. After studying music at the Conservatory of Music at Purchase College in New York City,  she now lives in Brooklyn pursuing music full time.

 

Better known as Madelin, the singer/songwriter released her new EP titled, The Peachmixes. The song that caught my eye was “Roxelana.” The EP features two different versions of the song, one more fast-paced, experimental, and techno featuring Maxo, and the other more slow down version featuring Mikey B. I prefer the version with Mikey B, as I can better understand and appreciate the lyrics.


Referencing a powerful historical woman, Roxelana (a good history lesson here)


“Roxelana How'd you do it girl? How did you make them
Make ‘em see it pure Cause all im getting is angrier
Help your sister out Cause im not 100% percent sure”


The song is about growing older and wiser, but also being true to yourself.


The music video (FT. Maxo) showcases the energy the song encompasses.
