The 32-year-old singer was awed to learn he was using the same microphone used by the iconic pop star when he got into the recording studio in Los Angeles to lay down tracks for his new album, 'Live Life Living'.
Example even credits the ''magic'' recording equipment with helping him create his best songs yet.
He explained: ''I was recording on this microphone in LA and I was like, 'This mic is f***ing amazing.' When you hear the opening track on the album my voice has a sound quality that I've never been able to capture before.
''Stuart [Price, producer] said, 'Oh this is the mic we did the whole of the 'Confessions on the Dance Floor' album with.'
''I've used famous microphones before like Sinatra's, but Madonna's mic was special.
''There's a certain mystique around it that you can't explain, because that album reignited her career, I don't think she's had the same success since. It must be the magic mic!''
While he's confident in the music he's recorded, Example - real name Elliot Gleave - admits he does have some worries about the album's chart prospects.
He told the Daily Star newspaper: ''The industry is going through a lot of changes and nobody seems to care about albums any more.''
A sleekly made thriller with a sparky sense of humour, this is also a rare action movie that has something important to say.
