    1. Dark Ballet 2. Future 3. Killers Who Are Partying 4. God Control 5. Crave 6. Crazy 7. Extreme Occident 8. Looking For Mercy 9. Faz Gostoso 10. I Don’t Search I Find First Single: God Control Countdown Promo 1: Faz Gostoso Countdown Promo 2: Extreme Occident Second Single: Dark Ballet Third Single: Crave (US); Future (International) Fourth Single: Medellín (Album reissue with this as a new song, coinciding with the launch of the tour. XD) Disclaimers: I cut out some songs I really like because making it ten tracks only made it more important to find a narrative arc for the album. I like the idea of it ending with celebratory upbeat numbers. Faz Gostoso is easily the best first single material here, but it’s a cover, so it never would fly. God Control is the obvious choice, therefore. I have a few reservations about the production, but it would have been a spellbinding way to begin the era, a true return of Politicsdonna. For the Medellin-led deluxe reissue, I’d also add I Rise (SANS EMMA!) and Come Alive, which I love.
  4. I hadn’t realized she left out Michael OOP
  5. I think I’d like Funana more if it weren’t for the lyrics? I don’t know—they don’t really get formulated into a melody; it’s something different than both the Vogue rap style of speaking notes and the more musical chant-type thing she tries on a few songs of Erotica. In Funana the part where she’s listing names just seems really unmusical and uninspired. I agree the instrumental has some potential though.
  6. Ciao Bella is the best of the bonus tracks and should have been on the standard edition of the album. I disagree re Crazy though. It’s one of my faves because of the very carefully arranged instrumental. As much as I like them and wouldn’t remove them from the album, I’d say Future and Bitch I’m Loca are the basic songs. The one has a reggae formula going on and the other sounds exactly what I’d expect from M collaborating with a Latin artist. I don’t really dislike any of the album’s songs though and I love the bonus tracks for the first time in like three albums, except for Fuglana we don’t know her.
  7. So as long as it’s #1 the ranking on all the other songs could have been horrible and you wouldn’t mind?
  8. Literally SHAKING at how much her catalogue is worth. A friend and I were discussing this the other day and the hypothetical scenario of whether she’d be able/willing to buy them back if given the chance. I have a suspicion she would want to, because it’s truly a sound investment, and unlike buying someone else’s masters, she’d be investing in herself. But even if the actual cost was way lower, like $100 million, to imagine her having to cut her net worth down that drastically is insane. All that to say, you can see the ugly leverage the label had in trying to tempt her with the “earning them back” option.

    I’d say happy July 4 but I don’t commemorate the day white colonizers congratulated themselves on a racially unequal political victory that was accompanied by the largest quantity of moral hypocrisy maybe ever. Juneteenth OUTSOLD. ari4

      Google it and see what the real Independence Day is, sis julia1

    3. Lover

      I feel the same way about this day. There’s only one group of people that truly can celebrate it - straight, white men. Women couldn’t vote. Black people were enslaved. Gay people had no rights either. Truly a sham of a holiday. 

      It’s crazy how important this day was viewed as a child (especially growing up in a white family in the south) when really it’s one of the least inclusive holidays in history ari9  

  10. I Don’t Slander, I Spill Tea
  11. Same. But I did that since it first came out because her voice sounds ridiculous. Your uses of this gif had me dying That’s one of my big takeaways from the results. Crazy and FG should have been higher too. At least EO did well. And if one of the disco numbers was going to be #1 I’d have picked IDSIF. edit: the random downvote I- what’s good, bitch @Lucifer's Angel
  12. This really puts Reputation in perspective tbh. Downright ridiculous the era is written off the way it is and even though I’m not the biggest fan of that particular album it still was a very good release and she blew literally every component that measures an era out of the water except for the Hot100 runs. But as we’re seeing, that’s one small piece of a massive pie. And plenty of people chart more songs higher but don’t have a fraction of the other numbers associated with Rep.
