I love the song, but if she's indeed performing this year, I think that Batuka won't be an option (maybe as part of a MX mash-up, idk 🤔).

Batuka is DEFINITELY an option! Madonna loves “tribal” beats and has done similar performances in the past, with the gypsies during Sticky end Sweet and a remix of Masterpiece during MDNA your.

its not just a good song, its a great song and among the best on this album. The fact that a line is repeated many times doesn't diminish the greatness of the song, actually its one of the reasons why the song works so well. See Extreme Occident central chant "Life Is a Circle". I think Batuka also sounds like an African chant and thats one of the reasons why it is so powerful.

I don't determine if a song is good strictly off its lyrical content. Seems kind of mentally limiting.

I am somewhat inclined to agree. I like the melody and the idea behind it, but this song doesn't really go anywhere. Maybe worthy of a tour interlude?

If she takes the Batukadeiras on tour, surely she'll do Batuka, duh

The Batukadeiras are going with Madonna on tour, and so is Celeste Rodrigues' great-grandson who plays Portuguese guitar:

I agree. I've learned to trust her as there hasn't been one tour I've been disappointed with and the clever way she's performed or mixed every song for them.

This is one of my favorites on the album too. Really incredible. It’s interesting to see how wide-ranging the tastes of her fanbase are. There are just as many who only like straightforward pop songs as those who like her more experimental side. I can’t imagine not hearing the brilliance of this song.

Where is it supposed to go?

Right? Like it’s not an average pop song! Jesus. It’s obviously based on a chanting melody of the Baianas/Batukadeiras, which one needs to know about or be interested in before they can appreciate their style of singing. This is one of those songs by Madonna that is simply not for everyone.

It grew on me a lot, too. Amazing atmosphere and catchy. Sounds super on speakers too.
