Fans who were curious about what Madonna's collaboration with Chance the Rapper and Mike Tyson would sound like can now find out as "Iconic" has surfaced on the Internet. The track, in addition to "Veni Vedi Vici" featuring Nas, is yet another tune from the Queen of Pop's upcoming album Rebel Heart. The singer's 13th studio effort is scheduled to drop March 10.
A crowd is cheering enthusiastically at the beginning of "Iconic" before Iron Mike comes in.
"I'm the best the world has ever seen. The best ever. I'm somebody you're never gonna forget because I work hard and sweat in my tears. Can't be stopped. I'm never falling again and if I did, I'll come back," the former boxer said, hyping up the listener for Madonna's electronic song.
"Don't you know you were meant to be iconic," Madge sings in a robotic tone throughout the song.
Chance breaks up the pop song around the three-minute mark to put down some verses. The result is a tight collaboration that shows off Madonna's forward-thinking pop ideals.
"Veni Vedi Vici" is more of a hip-hop track, with Madonna channeling her inner Nicki Minaj -- or is she just channeling her inner Madonna who Minaj tends to channel on some of her pop tunes? Nas comes in with an impressively energetic performance, cutting right through the heavy electro beats.
If "Iconic" is Madonna encouraging others to tap into their inner talent, then "Veni Vedi Vici" is her and Nas just flaunting their polished artistry.

Tyson recently recounted his experience in the studio with the pop icon.
"I didn't know what the hell I was going there for," he said. "I didn't know if she wanted me to talk or rap. I just go in there and start talking. I'm talking about my life and things that I have endured. I'm saying some really crazy stuff. It was really intense."
