Madonna co-wrote and co-produced the album in partnership with various musicians, including Diplo, Avicii and Kanye West.  Musically, 'Rebel Heart' is a pop Album which merges an array of musical genres such as 1990s such as house, Trap and Reggae, as well as the usage of acoustic guitars and gospel choir.
