Amazing,well deserved!

Now she only needs to remember how it's spelled. :D

LOL

She's a pretty bad speller (on social media) of words that actually exist; you want her to be a good speller of words that don't?

Am I the only one who thinks Warner has something to do with MDNA / Rebel Heart singles not taking off ? Just so strange they didn't even chart

Absolutely well deserved, and it's not like it was only M stans who voted. It's ridiculous this song didn't even chart when the public interest was real.

It has nothing to do with Warner. Her contract with them ended with Celebration remember?

what sabotage can they do? This is all about streaming and all that shit. And adults not buying cds anymore, but downloading it illegally.

It has all to do with Interscope / Universal not lifting a single finger marketing wise. They took the distribution deal very literal. Technically they may not have done anything wrong but not using your influence on ageist radio when you have the biggest star on the planet on your roaster is disgusting behaviour. AND their way to show any artist that a 360 deal with a touring company might result in a big decrease in sales because you don't have the powers of a record company behind you to market your work properly. This is a big "Think Twice!" message or dare I say warning.

Exactly. I think there is an immense amount of politics involved that so many underestimate.

Readers' Poll: The 10 Best Songs of 2015 See which single beat Drake and the Alabama Shakes for the top spot

The music industry has had a historic 12 months as the streaming wars heated up and album sales reached record-breaking highs thanks to Adele after years of diminishing returns. As the business itself faced incredible changes, breaking artists and veteran musicians alike experimented with their sounds, doing everything from throwing back to the Seventies to getting everyone to cha-cha. As 2015 comes to an end, we asked our readers to vote for their favorite songs of the year.

1.Madonna, "Ghosttown"

Even in a great year for pop music, Madonna is still the queen. The power ballad off her March album Rebel Heart was a more classic pop turn for the singer after the house hit "Living for Love" and trap digression of "Bitch I'm Madonna." On the massive, romantic track, the singer tackles both world issues and a reflection of self. Even though the single didn't crack the Billboard Hot 100, it still topped the dance charts and showcased one of the singer's strongest vocal performances.

Rolling Stone

This has got to be payola. I mean there is no other way. Nobody bought this song, what readers voted for this?

But why?? Shouldn't a song be a hit on its own merit? Are you suggesting payola? What do you mean by influence? And I personally believe Interscope paid a lot of money to get this album good reviews. They did the same with Gaga for Born This Way.

Bitch please! Rebel Heart sold 800K, and obviously, Ghosttown is part of that album so these 800K people have heard Ghosttown (plus the 20 millions who watched the video on Youtube or her many performances on TV, and also the people who downloaded the song). It's hardly "nobody".

They didn't chart because they were both terrible albums. This delusion.
