The Canadian hitmaker previously co-produced “Ghosttown” for Madonna alongside Jason Evigan. Co-written with Sean Douglas and Evan “Kidd” Bogart, the track topped the US Billboard Dance Club Songs Chart.

Born Mathieu Jomphe, Billboard songwriting/production resume boasts additional works with Ariana Grande (“Thinking Bout You”), Erik Hassle (“TKO”), Zara Larsson (“Rooftop”), Elliphant (“You’re Gone”), Shakira (“La La La”), Ferras (“Speak in Tongues”), Britney Spears (“Hold it Against Me”), Kesha (“Cannibal”), Ellie Goulding (“In My City”) and Mika (“Popular Song”).

Meanwhile, Madonna is expected to release her upcoming fourteenth album – featuring further contributions from Brittany “Starrah” Hazzard – later this year via Boy Toy / Live Nation / Interscope Records.

The still-untitled project follows 2015’s “Rebel Heart,” which peaked to number two on the US Billboard 200 Albums Chart and spawned three singles in the shape of “Living for Love,” “Ghosttown” and “Bitch I’m Madonna.”
