  1. I'm a bit 50-50 on the Emma Gonzales sample but the song itself is great. Love her voice on it and the overall message of the song. Two for two so far. I don't want to jinx it but I'm starting to think she's about to deliver another masterpiece.  Everything is blowing me away this era.

    Bill, I think you should not look at charts anymore concerning artists like Madonna. I mean, nobody expects Bruce Springsteen's new single to be number one. However, people expect quality and surely good opening numbers. For years I stopped looking at charts regarding veteran acts. I didn't pay atenttion during Rebel Heart, never expected any song to chart. Same with Madame X singles.

    I think Madonna is focusing on hyping the album, something that is really working on favour of artists these days. I guess that is why we get I Rise on Friday and maybe the new single next week! I may be wrong because I am not in Madonna's head, of course, but I think she's calculating the exposure, views, etc in order to get  new fans and having a succesful tour! 

    I agree. 

    The other issue working against her is radio won’t play her. Her streaming numbers aren’t much different from other acts that chart but they get additional support from radio while she doesn’t. That most disappointing part of that is her music is still better than most of the crap they do play. ☹️

  3. Great new article from NME, apologies if this has been posted elsewhere.

    Maluma just posted on his IG that his new album 11:11 will come out on May 17th, and it has another collaboration with Madonna called Soltera (Single). I think this will definitely be good promotion and I'm sure he will release this single later this year. 

    Wow they really got it off by the looks of it! Three songs so far. I can’t think of anyone else she’s collaborated with this much. 

  5. JLo feat French Montana - Medicine was released 7 Apr 2019. Almost 3 weeks ago and has about 16 million views. The video only has 16,900 comments and 258K like 29K dislikes.

    Medellin was released 4 days ago and has almost 11 million views. The video has 45,600 comments though and 370K likes and 96K dislikes.

    People can talk all the shit they want but she still has their attention and provokes a reaction.

    A multicultural multilingual song in Eurovision... where multicultural and multilingual is expected... how is it not a good fit?

    Yeah I'm not sure why everyone keeps saying Medellin is not a good song for Eurovision? Her live performances are always great regardless of what she sings. I feel like she will overshadow all the contestants regardless. Two new songs from the album will be awesome. I feel like it will be "I Rise" as that's the next song to be released on iTunes.

    The only part I speculate on is how she says Martha says “I’m going to call you madame X...look different as much as possible from now on every time I see you,” and “I was tied to a tree for months and then turned into a chacha instructor.”

    That's not even the fucking quote.

    "She said,

           'I'm going to give you a new name - Madame X. Every day, you come to school, and I don't recognise you. Every day, you change your identity.You're a mystery to me.'"

    "And I said,


    It wasn't a direction. It was a comment that she (Martha) doesn't recognise her each day she comes to school so therefore she is going to call her Madame X. How is that difficult to comprehend?

    And who would actually think she's being literal when/if (I haven't even heard this quote) she says "I was tied to a tree for months"?

    So I just realized BTS is performing at the BBMAs as well so there’s literally no question about who’s going to be the most talked about act on social media. :megamanson:

    On the plus side their fans will probably tweet about all the the performers so M could potentially get a visibility boost as well. Could help with streaming!

    Also there will be tons of good links. Nobody works harder than the BTS stans at setting up good links for people outside the US!

    Who is BTS?!? 🤔

    ok, your not a well person, you bought the anger to me not the other way around. Maybe concern yourself less with me and support Madonna and purchase her song and help her.

    No one’s angry. Simply pointing out you’re trolling. All you’ve done in response is to deflect. I really don’t care if you want to waste your time on a Madonna forum talking shit.

    I think that oz was the first country that abbandoned her with USA,  so then comes the Uk.  So i assume that there's something wrong in the speaking english countries. Maybe she offended them in some way... maybe she said that the way this countries support stupid artist like Gaga, swift, Rihanna, perry and counting... It's so embarrasing. I don't kwon. The only thing i know is that you infected all the world with stupid instruments like digital at first than streaming, in the name of progress you, in term of collectivity, destroyied music and great artist. Now take what you deserve. 

    Unfortunately I would say that biggest reason her popularity cooled in Oz was due to so many tours missing us. So much of her promotion for the 00’s and 10’s has been from tours so that’s resulted in a significant lack of promotion for her here. 

    I agree with @Jazzy Jan though. There has been a lot more interest around Madame X from the general public / casual fans compared to previous albums. At least in my experience from talking to people. Eurovision is pretty huge in Australia - to the point that we actually compete in it - so I think that will be great promo for her. Also the BBMAs should also give her a boost. I’m optimistic that this era will do well here.
