Madonna has been friends with Kanye West for years, and he worked with her on the tracks "Holy Water
," "Wash All Over Me
" and "S.E.X.," as well as this number. "We ran into each other at a party and we got to talking and he just said, 'Where are you with your new record? I know you're making a record right now and I want to hear it,'" she explained to Complex
magazine. "He came over to my house one day and he listened to everything and he said, 'I want to do with you what Rick Rubin did with me and my (Yeezus
) album. I had almost finished it and Rick came in and basically went through every track, made comments, made things better, and strip things down.'"
