Madonna is sharing another song from her forthcoming album "Madame X."

Called "I Rise," the new song samples Emma González, a student who survived the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.

"[They say] us kids don't know what we're talking about. That we're too young to understand how the government works. We call B.S.," she can be heard saying on the song's opening.

Madonna also released a statement about "I Rise."

"I wrote 'I Rise' as a way of giving a voice to all marginalized people who feel they don't have the opportunity to speak their mind," the pop icon said. "This year is the 50th anniversary of Pride and I hope this song encourages all individuals to be who they are, to speak their minds and to love themselves."

"I Rise" follows Madonna's lead single "Medellin" which features Columbian musician Maluma. The duo performed the song at the Billboard Music Awards this week. She also released a video for the song, in which Madonna sucks on Maluma's toes.

"Madame X," Madonna's 14th album, is out on June 14.
