Madonna’s daughter Lourdes Leon, 25, rocks jewelry pasties and a literate fishnet in her debut music video

Lourdes Leon, welcome to the family enterprise. The eldest child of Madonna debuted her new stage name Lolahol with a jungle-inspired debut song and a captivating music video.

Come claim your reward if you have “Madonna’s firstborn launches her music career with a drum-and-bass track” on your 2022 Bingo cards. Lourdes Leon “Lola” Leon, 25, the daughter of Madonna, 64, and Carlos Leon, 56, released her first single under the alias Lolahol on Wednesday (Aug. 24). She also produced a song video in which Lolahol followed in her mother’s footsteps by donning a provocative attire, more specifically, a pair of nipple pasties and a silvery jumpsuit in the style of Kylie Minogue (they seem to be en vogue at the moment.) At the very end of the video, Lolahol indulges in a full-fledged mermaid fantasy by playing in the crashing waves while donning a fishnet top made of discarded rope.

“Lock & Key” is a very pleasant musical surprise. Jungle breakbeats, a style that was once popularised in the early 1990s UK rave scene, are included in Lolahol’s debut (which would lead to the rise of drum and bass in the middle of the decade.) The song incorporates trip-hop elements, as described by Rolling Stone, while Lolahol’s ethereal vocals dance between the lines of gloomy alt-pop and bedroom music, as she appears to exist between the planes. Although Lourdes Leon’s mother is no stranger to the dance floor—she recently released a sizable collection of her fifty No. 1 dance tracks—few would have predicted that Lolahol’s debut would be an emotional, “Amen” break-inspired track.

She sings, “Why can’t I just lock into a Polly pocket.” Keep a picture of you in my locket. Addicted to the comfort. Until the comforter gets too hot to sleep. I’m tossing and turning. It could all be crystal clear.

The song is quite a remarkable debut, and it wouldn’t be odd to see it on Warp Records (actually, it’s on Chemical X, the label that Eartheater founded in August 2021). It was co-produced by the experimental musician Eartheater, Samuel Burgess, and Hara-Kiri. Additionally, “Lock & Key” might position Lolahol as a Cassandra in kicking off a future IDM rebirth given the 90s/early 2000s renaissance that is currently in effect.

Since Lourdes Leon claimed in 2021 that she had no plans to follow in her mother’s footsteps, this song comes as a surprise. I can sing, so that’s music. Simply put, I don’t give a damn. Perhaps it’s too personal,” she stated in a Debi Mazar interview with Interview magazine. “I don’t have a clear objective. I should probably. Modeling is a wise financial choice. I like to be really involved in the ads I work on, so I’m not really just modeling. I prefer to blend all of those aspects of who I am—I dance, I have a very distinct sense of style, and I’m interested in aesthetics—into my work.

She continued, “I want to create a world where models aren’t just silent clothing racks and they have greater power over what they do. The fashion industry is entering an era where models are personalities and artists.
