  1. Right now it's: Crave IDSIF Medellin God Control I Rise Lots of other songs I enjoy, esp Crazy, Come Alive, Ciao Bella and KWAP.
  2. For right now (cuz it keeps on changing): 1) I Don't Search I Find 2) God Control 3) Crave 4) Crazy 5) Medellin
  3. This exact same thing happened to me w Crazy and Come Alive! I have loved IDSIF consistently since the first listen. At first I didn't care for God Control, but now it's one of my favs. Crave still up there. Bitch I'm Loca was initially one of my least favs, but now it's movin on up... this album has so much variety and depth!
  4. LOVE this track, esp on headphones. Does anyone know where to buy the bonus tracks online? They aren't listed on Anazon's music service, the only place I can find them are on YouTube...
  5. What time will she be going on stage? I'm in New York but don't have tickets for Pride Island. Can I see/hear the show from the shoreline? Or should I rent a kayak?
  6. I think she's saying that if you mess w these groups, I'll be one w them and you'll be messing w me. It would be one thing if she was all talk and no action. But she's actually done things to address homophobia, poverty, women's issues and HIV/AIDS and has traveled to and spoken out about peace in the Middle East. I appreciate her committment and solidarity--would you rather she not speak up at the risk of offending someone? Aside from that, this song is gorgeous.
  7. Been listening pretty much nonstop. Favs for me include **I Don't Search**, Killers, Faz Gostosa, Crave, Medellin and Ciao Bella. I'm also digging Crazy, Come Alive, Batuka, Dark Ballet and Future. I don't get the love for God Control, the disco transition is jarring, I can't get into the groove! Strange bc some folks really love it, different strokes I guess. Bitch I'm Loca is just silly, but fun. Looking for Mercy has some good parts, but it's too repetitive and dirge-like for me. The one track that I really don't care for is Extreme Occident. Overall, it's an ambitious melange of cultures & styles, glad our lady is still reaching and striving! Which songs already have videos to be released? Batuka and one other, right?
  8. I will not listen to leaks, I will not give them peaks... I will try to remain strong, I will surely carry on. I pray I can last the week!
  9. I'm thoroughly enjoying the mad craziness of DB, but what is really tripping me out is how playing the 5 songs that we have so far in their album order is changing how I perceive them... e.g., Future sounds way better after DB. The pieces of the puzzle are dropping into place. This album is shaping up to be her most artistically ambitious since ROL(!)
  10. How does the I Rise YouTube clip have more views than the Crave video?!? That's muy loca...
  11. There has seemed to be a lull in promotion after Eurovision, perhaps in reaction to all the criticism (f*ck you bishes, I'm gonna focus on tour workshops!) Up until that point the excitement was really building up pretty nicely... I suppose it makes sense to have a slight pause before the album release to maximize the impact? I still feel like we have at least two singles w videos to go, the drag queen/theater video and the beach scene video with women all in white. This is keeping me excited. I'm flummoxed that Crave isn't getting more views on YouTube (such a good jam!) although it seems to be getting some radio play in the USA, which is a minor miracle. Maybe it'll be a grower at radio? They should release some Crave remixes. I'm really curious to see if they have already released the best songs for single material, or if they are saving the real gems for later...
  12. Medellin moved up from #16 to #7 on the Billboard dance chart... will she make it to #1?
  13. She looks absolutely stunning, fav song from the album so far. I agree on the Borderline vibes. When she's on the ground for the "inside... of... me" line I totally thought she might reach for her crotch!!! I don't know why I would think that... luv this video.
  14. Yes. This. Omg are we still wringing our hands about this? Let's channel our energy towards something positive--like getting Crave on the radio and anticipating all the Mirwais tracks that are on their way and basking in the knowledge that she's still striving and creating and confounding expectations after all these years...
  15. 1. Crave - Evokes a plaintive longing that is captivating, raw and honest. 2. Medellin - Transports you to an alternate world and really kicks into gear halfway through with a beautiful chorus. Nissim sphinx remix is fab. 3. I Rise - Powerful and anthemic, like the song for a phoenix emerging from the ashes. 4. Future - Catchy and surprising with a dark-edged message. Skilled production but maybe overproduced a bit on her vocal? 5. Soltera - Great beat, enjoy her lyrics but not the style of her singing, too high pitched.
  16. LAP wasn't as enjoyable for me bc it was pretty similar to Met Gala and didn't have enough movement/visual interest. A new arrangement would have sparked my interest. However, I thought her voice was fine for a live performance. A bit pitchy but who cares? I really enjoyed Future on the other hand. She came to life, the choreography was hawt, background visuals stunning. The song fit her political message (if you don't learn from the past, you ain't goin to the future...) kudos for displaying the two flags to symbolize coexistence.
  17. Just listened to it a few times. Terrific production, like all the MX songs so far. Didn't recognize her voice after the intro, which was kinda cool. The chorus is catchy and sticks in your brain. I enjoy the dancehall/reggae vibes, and I think the lyrics are interesting. Main thing lacking for me here is an emotional connection, which Crave & I Rise provide in spades. My least fav of the 4 tracks, but not hating on this tune by any means. Solid album track.
  18. +1 I really enjoyed the performance, but I agree the rehearsals w her hair pulled tight I liked even more. The Crave looks so far I am really digging. When does the full video drop?
  19. Mind blown. Vulnerable, mournful, wistful. Beautiful harmonies, modern, great pairing w Swae Lee. The WRITING. This song makes you feel... She's at the top of her game.
  20. Good article on it by MTV news: http://www.mtv.com/news/3122994/madonna-i-rise-new-song-emma-gonzalez/ I wish this song would get a proper video, imagine what she could do with it...
  21. Loved it. The "I rise" line instantly gets stuck in your head. Love her vocal and super catchy.
  22. I wonder if they're going to get naked... "I felt so naked and alive... (show me)" Now that would generate some attention!
  23. When do folks think she'll release remixes? That will increase sales and streaming. Has anyone heard it yet in the clubs?
  24. Excellent. Beat is infectious, vocals are clean, it starts slow and builds to a crescendo. I can't help but move when I hear it. She sounds vulnerable and fresh (naked & alive). She sounds relaxed and not desperate for a hit, which is why it's going to be a hit. Maluma sounds great, best duet she's ever done. Just sent my 24-yr old sister the link and she replied "Ooo me encanta!! "
