  1. I don't know exactly when it happened, but I just noticed that ASCAP has officially added Casey Spooner as a co-writer of "God Control". https://www.ascap.com/repertory#ace/search/workID/898045261
  2. Full article at forbes.com. Published almost half a year ago, but still very relevant ...

  4. Seems to be a direct sample: ASCAP has added James Brown as a co-writer of "Funana".
  5. The drums seem to be heavily inspired by James Brown's "Funky Drummer":
  6. KAN, the Israeli public broadcasting corporation, which produced the Eurovision Song Contest 2019, has sued Live Nation over Madonna's performance in the show, claiming that Live Nation violated the terms of their contract with KAN. According to the court filing, KAN provided Madonna with technical and logistical support that went beyond the production of the Eurovision show, including projectors, headphones, tents, security, catering, extra staff etc. According to Madonna's contract with KAN, Live Nation was supposed to cover those costs ($ 390,000), but it appears they never paid u
  7. These are the ones that will be commercially released on Friday, according to DrownedMadonna: DJLW Remix (4:36) Kue Drops The Funk Remix (5:56) Offer Nissim Remix (6:56) Thomas Gold Remix (3:17) Daybreakers Remix (5:24) DJ Irene & The Alliance Remix 3:50)
  8. AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine 4/5 https://www.allmusic.com/album/madame-x-mw0003274282 Madame X is the rare album from a veteran artist that puts earlier records in a different light. Ever since the 1980s, the conventional wisdom about Madonna claimed she brought trends from the musical underground for the purpose of pop hits, but Madame X -- a defiantly dense album that has little to do with pop, at least in the standard American sense -- emphasizes the artistic instincts behind these moves. The shift in perception stems from Madonna embracing a world outsi
  9. Danish music magazine Gaffa published their review of Madame X. Here's my rough translation: Split personality from Portugal 3/6 https://gaffa.dk/anmeldelse/137968/anmeldelse-personlighedsspaltning-fra-portugal/ It's obivious that Madonna's fourteenth album, Madame X, was inspired by sounds from all over the world, serving you anything from Eurodance to Latin rhythms. Several songs are even bilingual, with Madonna singing in Spanish and Portuguese. Madonna has explained that the Madame X character has several identities. She is a professor, a home carer, a nun
  10. Danish newspaper Politiken published a 4/6 review on the cover of their Culture section. I haven't had the chance to read it in full yet, and it isn't online yet either, but they call the album the craziest experiment of Madonna's career.
  11. It's probably digital-only and hasn't been added to the store yet.
  12. Madonna - Madame X 6/10 https://www.clashmusic.com/reviews/madonna-madame-x Bizarre or bold, delusional or avant-garde, this album is guaranteed to make you feel something - good or bad, or even both... Expecting the unexpected is the wrong way to go into ‘Madame X’, after all, this is Madonna. If anything, expecting the expected (and then some) would be a more appropriate way to digest what really could be the most bizarre album of 2019. Madonna’s edge has always been the shock factor. When it comes to lyrics and music videos, she practically invented it. But ‘Madame
  13. Positive indeed: ""Madame X" sounds as if Madonna is enjoying making music again for the first time in years, experimenting with it, and as if she relies on her intuition. On her two most recent albums, her intuition was nowhere to be felt. She was chasing the latest pop sounds. "Madame X" is Madonna rediscovering her groove." According to the reviewer from Süddeutsche Zeiting, "Killers Who Are Partying" is the only song that isn't good.
  14. MadonnaTribe reports that the Italian press was invited to listen to Madame X yesterday, and their reviews have started appearing: Vanity Fair Italia: Very positive. The reviewer says that not everyone is gonna like it. Rockol: Mixed. The reviewers seems most impressed by "Come Alive" and "Faz Gostoso". Il Manifesto: Very positive. Ansa: Rather objective/neutral in its descriptions of the songs, but feels generally favourable. La Presse: Very positive. The reviewer describes "Dark Ballet" and "Extreme Occident" as 'successful experiments', and mentions "Killers Who Ar
  15. The Daily Star published a generally positive track-by-track review: Medellín (with Maluma) Medellín's psychedelic groove works great as an introduction to what's to come. Strap in... 8/10 Dark Ballet Madonna's very own Bohemian Rhapsody. A mad, brilliant epic which veers from dubstep to classical. 9/10 God Control A total pop banger, it's essentially a sequel to her classic hit Vogue. 10/10 Future (with Quavo) A weird choice to perform at Eurovision, Future is easily the worst song. The beat goes nowhere and Migos rapper Quavo just sounds bored. 4/10 Ba
  16. The only realistic description was made by The Guardian's reviewer, who described it as "somewhere between baile funk and Angolan kuduro"
  17. Madonna revealed yesterday in a YouTube Q&A that it's her favourite song on the album. "because the song changes gears so many times. It starts off one way, then it becomes classical. A lot of modern and classical sounds."
  18. My guess: LA95 is an alias of Mathieu Jomphe, aka Billboard, who co-produced "Ghosttown" and "Crave".
  19. During the performance of "Like a Prayer", Madonna's was so off pitch throughout the song that the live autotune effect didn't do her any good. If anything, it made her sound even worse. After having listened to it a few times, I've come to the conclusion the vocals heard in the uploaded video are mostly from an entirely different recording.
  20. No.. Danish music magazine Gaffa is now reporting that Madonna is trying to cover up her Eurovision "failure" by uploading a 'fixed' version of the performance on her YouTube channel. They also ask their readers a question: What is more embarrassing – admitting that you sang off key on live television or trying to make it sound like it never happened?
  21. Correct. The EBU most likely don't have the rights to upload it on the Eurovision YouTube channel - and that was allegedly one of the contract issues.
  22. The broadcast directors cutting away from the Palestinian flag as soon as they realized it was there. However, they failed to react until the flag was off screen.
