I'm hearing quite a bit here in Puerto Rico and looking at Botoxic it looks like .843 of it's 1.942 total is Latin.

You would think since 4 Minutes was massive by me that some stations would be picking up on GI2M, but nothing so far......*sigh*

I still have no idea what the motivation behind releasing GI2M as an official single was (aside from maybe using this uber pop song to pacifiy those put-off Madonna fans who’re mad at her for her becoming a ‘thug’ with 4M.) I mean the song is already on the album, so anyone who buys it will hear it…and if she wants to add it to her tour set list, then whatever…but to serve the song up commercially was a mistake from the word go. Radio wasn’t going to play it. The second single should have been either Beat or Devil. Such obvious choices, I can’t understand why it flew over their heads. History has shown us that all it takes is one flop single to kill a Madonna album. They should cancel all promotion of GI2M, and rush release BGO while its still early.

Yes! I agree for the most part of everything you said. I've known all along, even when this was first reported as the second release and many fans claim this is their favorite song on the album, this would be a poor choice for a follow up single. The album releases need to appeal to a broader audience on radio, so releasing a fan's favorite or even a favorite of Madonna's will just not always work unless it has a broad appeal.

I agree GI2M is a cool song. I like it a lot, but I also agree it's not the sound that American radios will play. Anyone who doesn't believe that, needs to take a harsh look at what's popular on radio right now, whether you like what's being played or not. The fact is those songs are what is "hot". So if Madonna is determined to get a hit in the U.S. she needs to release singles that will appeal to American radio, not just what Madonna fans like and already own.

The more I think about it "Candy Shop" probably would have been a likely choice for a follow up single. It's hardly my favorite, but I've manage to appreciate it more and more the more I listen to it. And whether some fans want to admit it or not, she necessarily can't hold a single on her own anymore (at least in the U.S.). The proof is "4 Minutes". It's become her biggest selling single yet. But you can't tell me if she stuck with a song that's more just her, it would have done better.

"Devil" needs to be a single too. Every year, a epic song of this sort is huge on radio. Madonna should take this opportunity because I believe this will be her #1 song from the album. Releasing "Miles Away" will kill the album further if it's not already dead in the water. It's a lovely song, but radio in the U.S. will not play this song and that's a fact.

No Justin this time. And Pharrel isn't called out as being part of the song like Justin was in 4M.

Am I the only one who thinks that "Devil" would bomb on U.S. radio? I don't understand why so many people think that it will be successful as a U.S. single. I think it's one of the least U.S. radio-friendly songs on the album. Maybe it's just me. :confused:

Beat Goes On should have been the 2nd single. I hope she ditches Miles and releases that one instead.

I'm over GITM already, I'm starting to think it's perhaps the worst Madonna/Pharrell song on the album!

A poor choice for the second single, it won't get decent airplay in the U.S! They would have been smarter to put out BGO instead, at least because Kanye's appearance on the song would guarantee some airplay on urban stations. Then, I'd go with MILES AWAY as the 3rd single!

I'm sure it's just not you since a lot of fans are basing their thoughts on what songs they like the best, rather what will work in each region. I disagree it will bomb. While it sounds nothing like "Take A Bow", it has that similar vibe American radio is always looking for. It seems every year, comes along this epic song. And it usually always ties to Timbaland or Timberlake or both. And it just so happens "Devil" incorporates both talents. Whether you like it or not, or you think they are "tired", they have that current sound U.S. radio is looking for. This is Madonna's chance to cash in on that vibe.

Unfortunately, we'll never know until it's release and if they wait to release this song after a couple bombs, there's probably no point of thinking "Devil" will be played on radio.

I'll tell you what bothers me. Even though, I don't think GI2M will be big on radio, it seems radio isn't giving it a chance. Maybe they feel the same way as I do, but part of me wonders if they'll play any Madonna song at this point unless it heavily doused with another popular artists as Justin.

I would rather Madonna made quality music and not hit the charts than having to use other artists as a way of guaranteeing a place in the charts. Hard Candy is a weak album and it shows. Hung Up may not have got radio support but it was a no1 digital seller and it created a huge buzz for COADF.

By trying to cater for American audience she has managed to alienate a lot of people. Rather than make the half-decent Hard Candy she should have focused on glorious epics like Ray of Light. She has not benefited from Timbaland's touch, but Timbaland and JT would have learnt the art of makign good pop and dance music from Madonna.

You would THINK....but who knows anymore with US radio it's so damn fickle. To me GI2M is a perfect "pop" song. Maybe not so current "typical" radio friendly, but it's just got "it". BTW I never listen to radio only if someone else is in the car or if I'm at a party/get together where they are playing radio (like yesterday when I heard it). But I swear, EVERY TIME I happen to listen to the radio I hear GI2M here in Puerto Rico. I was on a 5 minute ride up to Papa John's earlier this evening and I heard it AGAIN! :) And they do not edit out the "get stupid" part. Not sure if the "pop" stations that are playing it in the States are editing that out (it seems they would) but they aren't here.

I'm a sooo tired of all the bitching in these boards! Everybody knows better than Madonna and her team here! And everybody expects each and every song Madonna releases to jump immediately to #1 or else it is a flop and should have tried a different song instead(forgeting of-course that up until yesterday everybody here was 100% supportive of that "flop" single). :lame:
