  3. A fact: “Secret” is one of Madonna’s best songs ever. mad6 The use of humming to foreshadow Ray of Light. The impeccably understated production. The beguiling lyrics. The lush and soft side of her voice. The sheer bop qualiTEA.

      Madonna's humming is always just... really good? It's kind of inexplicable, she's just a good hummer. creep1

      I like it but it's not a song that I listen to voluntarily. Frozen outsold.

      @Madonna I do agree Frozen is better but they’re from such different worlds musically that it’s hard to compare them beyond the humming. I just find it interesting that after this song she seems to have realized how effective it can be, as @LittleDudeNT5 says.

  4. I just finally got to watch the Medellín video because I've been at end-of-semester events all day and I honestly feel vindicated. bebe1 I love this song and this is truly a spectacular video. clap3We have been blessed ladies with a bona fide era. cry7 The minimal messiness lana6 The maximal beauty--every lewk has been a SERVE mess1 King Maluma showing that bitch Drake how it's done when the queen of sex makes a move on you gaga14 their dancing iggy1 the making out lana1 the phallic toe sucking lana10 I have to say at this point I honestly love the album covers too.

      I really think the song talks about Madonna's longing for being a mother in a poetic way ny8

      I listened on earphones during a break from work and definitely liked it more than I remembered. Your impacT. burn1 There’s some real influences of jazz in it, and to me this brings out something I’d never associated with the album before. I know BS is her first R&B influenced album as a whole, but it’s interesting to look backward and find threads from that and other genres of black music (like soul and gospel on parts of LaP and some jazz in Secret Garden) that were there before. 

  6. One of the perks of being young is I'm going to hopefully be able to live to see what happens to all these dopey hoes who have been injecting fat into their asses. bey10 Like literally what is going to happen to Kim K and Nicki and Iggy et al. when all that shit has been there for 10-15 years? brit1

      To be fair, I think that she is not in love with Godtime Stories because her label was too restrictive about what she wanted to do. I think she really loves the material she created but I don't think she likes the era because of all the controversy she still had with Erotica. She was basically a joke those years. But sometimes it feels like she doesn't really love anything from the 90s besides Vogue. nicki4

      And she still being strong with Hard Candy is why it seems she lost her touch by leaving Warner. She was pretty messy with the whole HC era, but at least she did sound like she was in the head of the project and wasn't there just to sing and call it a day like she sounds in most of the songs from MDNA. Warner also said NO to Candy Shop as a lead single. With her new label that probably would've happened. dead1

      The thing is, her team was really bad in the last 2 eras and it seems she realized that because everything from Madame X is starting better, even if I don't like the song, it seems more memorable than last time. So... She does have her touch still, I was wrong, but she does need people who push her to do better. nat1

      I’m driving but am drafting an epîc responsé for later! bey11 Also listening to Bedtime Stories because it’s an hourlong drive and I want to be slayed. 

    4. Satori

      I think that's definitely the case re Bedtime Stories and her still having a hard time with that period of her career. To go from all the backlash of Erotica and then having the label try to micromanage her was probably vile. It reminds me of the way she shaded the MDNA/RH eras on Insta leading up to this one by @ing Guy O and implying she phoned things in because she was being pushed a certain way. Maybe less so with RH than MDNA but still. It's a shame that there's a lingering resentment for the early 90s material and I think you're right in that regard. I love Vogue but there are other things she should recover from that time and revisit.

       

      HC is a weird situation. I agree with you that this was the last one that seems to show her distinctive touch, but it's also the beginning of the decline. It's the first Madonna album since before RoL where there are songs that literally serve no purpose and are 100% filler (like Dance 2night... wtf with that useless and basic song that absolutely anyone could have recorded). Even with that, though, MDNA barely feels like a Madonna record by comparison. There are like three songs that indisputably great and the rest might be good but are definitely basic on some level.

       

      I 100% agree with what you said at the end about her team failing her the last two and her really needing a strong set of managers to make shit not a mess. I'm really pleased you're observing a change in this era despite not caring for Medellin. I notice it too!

      You can't tell me you don't like it all, hoe. I actually like that it's not overblown and starts out subtle and smooth. It makes the effect by the end of the song that much better. Listen again with earphones bitch.

      It's not your typical Reggaeton song, I'll give her that. nicki5

    3. Satori

      Satori

      I quite like Reggaeton, but I feel like there's a subtlety to this song that a lot of the first impressions I'm seeing here aren't embracing. My first listen is always with the best possible earphones so that I can really hear everything as best I can, and by the end the song had completely won me over. bebe1

      I know what you mean but I think it’s just that she’s one of the very few people who apparently sings with an accent? I’ve wondered about this for a while.... her pronunciation of some words is odd, but very distinctive. Her voice is quite mercurial. Can be very warm and intimate but also oddly distant and hard to pin down, like Jonna Lee’s....

  18. Revisiting Billie's ep today and loving it even more. The title track especially. I saw her live opening for Queen Florence and I'd happily pay to see her headline a gig. She was a great performer, sang live, and even though she didn't have a lot of set pieces, the lighting design and sound mixing was on fucking poinT. The whole arena was in a trance singing Ocean Eyes.
