    Review

    Don't open this. WTF. IS. WRONG. WITH. HER. In all her 5 latest releases (inc. Poisoned Rose) she has some bad autotuned parts that made her sound literally as a robot. And in the parts where she isn't autotuned, she's singing in a fuckin weird way that ruins completely the song. I don't even know why she does that, does her oompa loompa ass think that is cool or idk? I thought, ok, she did it once, she did it twice but that's ENOUGH. Two songs got released today and here we go again. Same weird vocal "techniques" in Future and same robotic voice in Soltura. She doesn't sound like a fuckin human being anymore. Even Maluma realised that she sounds like E.T. and he uploaded a video with robotic theme for their new collab. THIS IS HOW MY PC SOUNDS WHEN I OPEN IT. She's so done omg. And this Saturday she's gonna do what? Sing "Future" at Eurovision? "Not everyone is coming to the future Not everyone is coming from the past Not everyone can come into the future Not everyone that's here is gonna last" She gonna sing in front of 200.000.000 people that we all gonna die? Nice message rat. @Madonna was right, this is going to be her worst album. I'll never gonna underestimate you again sis, i swear. I knew this could happen for a whole year btw, but you said i was overreacting. Regine was right afterall. Is unstanning the better option, what do you think?

    Review

    The Colombian pop superstar and current Madonna collaborator cements his rise with an bang-on-trend album that’ll generate heat from Bogotá to Bognor It’s easy to reel off stats illustrating Maluma’s global pop phenomenon status: the Colombian singer has 40 million Instagram followers, more videos with a billion YouTube views than Ed Sheeran and an ongoing 43-date arena tour that’s headed for Madison Square Garden. But it’s more interesting and probably more revealing to note that he proposed a collaboration to Madonna when they met at the 2018 VMAs, displaying the sort of savvy, ambition and, well, sheer balls that the Queen of Pop herself has built a career on. So while Madge might tell him to “slow down, papi” on their excellent collaboration ‘Medellín’, in career terms there’s no chance of Maluma doing anything of the sort. This fourth album arrives nearly a year to the day after his third, ‘F.A.M.E.’, and includes collaborations with Ty Dolla $ign, huge Puerto Rican artist Ozuna, OG Latin pop crossover king Ricky Martin, super-producer Max Martin and, naturally, Madonna. She returns the favour for ‘Medellín’ (which doesn’t appear here) by singing in a not strictly necessary cod-Spanish accent on ‘Soltera’, a fun and flirty duet about playing hard to get. This time, she cools him off with, “I’m not a girl you’ll drink like wine”, a line that presumably wasn’t inspired by a shared bottle of tepid Echo Falls rosé. https://www.nme.com/reviews/album/maluma-1111-review#K7M9BcqmxVZVIYgo.99

    Right girls and gays it's time to rank. So recently I've been revisiting badgalriri's discography, and wanted to get other peoples opinions on her albums. I was originally going to do 'ANTI', but that has already been done so my next choice was 'Unapologetic'. Let's go! I'll start us off Diamonds Stay Phresh Out the Runway Love Without Tragedy / Mother Mary Loveeeeeee Song Lost in Paradise No Love Allowed Numb Jump Pour It Up Get It Other With What Now Nobody's Business Right Now Half of Me I always forget how fucking good this album is, I literally enjoy all the songs, even the last few on my ranking Don't forget to leave your ranking below
  9. Ok, what's going on with her new album? Someone inform me please. Where the hell is Norman Fucking Rockwell? We are in MAY and nothing yet. Will she include the 3 released songs in the new album? Will it get released in 2019 or in the next decade? Will we get more singles? I need answers. Someone tell her that she's gonna flop anyway, she don't have to wait for other big artists to release their music first.

    Right girls and gays time to rank. List the songs from Queen B's legendary album B'Day from your favourite to your least favourite. I'm just gonna include the songs from the standard edition because there are like 10000 different versions of this album and I don't have time to go through all the bonus tracks. Justice for Beautiful Liar though, she deserved to be included on the standard edition and I will always bop to Welcome to Hollywood that song is the definition of being an Illuminati queen. This is actually gonna be very hard because I love every single song on this album, ugh it was so good and she managed to complete it all within the space of 2 weeks like the queen she is Get Me Bodied Freakum Dress Déjà Vu Suga Mama Ring the Alarm Resentment Check on It Upgrade U Irreplaceable Listen Green Light Kitty Kat Don't forget to leave your ranking below

  14. Right girls and gays time to re-arrange. I am aware a similar thread has been made before but I'm gonna do this anway. So, recently I've been revisiting 'Witness' by Katy Perry, and I can't help but think that the album could've done so much better critically and commercially if the tracklisting had been arranged slightly better, better singles were chosen, and a few tracks were dropped from the record. Because of this, I've messed around with the tracklisting to try and make it flow better and have removed the songs that I think drag it down. Please don't drag me in the comments for this remember this is just my opinion. The singles are highlighted in green. Witness Hey Hey Hey Roulette Chained to the Rhythm (feat.

  18. Gt ready for the Madame X era, Madonna fans. The Queen of Pop dropped a comeback single today. Mid-tempo, low-key and introspective Medellín may not be the high-energy pop blast some fans were expecting (Madge is known to drop exhilarating, bruising lead singles like Music and Hung Up), but it’s hard to imagine any of her fans not falling hard for Medellín‘s intoxicating, sultry spell. This is a gorgeous return-to-form for the highest-selling female artist in history, and it doesn’t really sound like anything she’s done before. “Medellín” is sung in English and Spanish, and is a duet with 25-year-old husky-voiced Colombian crooner Maluma. He’s a superstar in South America. This could be his breakthrough in the U.S., and the playful, effortlessly fun and sexy “Medellín” could be a summer anthemworldwide. There’s chemistry here–it’s a duet that really works, and doesn’t feel forced. On Sunday, Madonna announced her new album (out June 14) was titled Madame X, and her new alter-ego for this era is a secret agent who goes by that name Along with the lead single, on Wednesday Madonna also released the tracklist for Madame X. You can see it on iTunes and other services, where the album is now available for pre-order. There are 15 tracks in total. One is a six-minute track called “God Control.” Then there’s a track (also featuring Maluma) called “Bitch, I’m Loca.” Perfect. She’s back. https://parade.com/872142/samuelmurrian/madonnas-gorgeous-new-single-medellin-may-become-the-song-of-summer-for-2019/
  19. Pack your bags, bitch: we’re taking a trip to Colombia with Madgeluma. Madonna – sorry, Madame X, and Maluma – (one of) my Colombian husband(s) – are knocking at our door, tickets (and champagne) in hand, ready to head to the airport for a lush, sultry escape to “Medellín” on Wednesday (April 17). And oh, how much I needed this vacation. As evidenced by her colorful, chaotic Instagram adventures over the past few years, from drinking wine in the studio with spoons to crooning with locals in the streets, Madonna drew musical inspiration for Madame X outside of America: namely, the cultural melting pot that is Portugal. “The whole inspiration for this record was completely and utterly based on going out in Lisbon and trying to make friends. Portugal is such a melting pot for so many different cultures—there’s a lot of people from Brazil, Angola, Spain. You can stand out on a balcony and hear some incredible voice carrying through the starlit sky, and it’s just so magical you can’t help but be inspired by it.” the Queen of Pop told Beats 1 host Julie Adenuga. Speaking of new friends: enter Maluma, Pretty Boy, Dirty Boy™, whom she met backstage at the MTV Video Music Awards and promptly snagged for a collaboration. (Or two, actually.) “I met him backstage at the Video Music Awards. And then I heard from his manager that he wanted to collaborate with me. I told that to [producer] Mirwais and we started listening to his music more closely, thinking, ‘Okay, how can we do something slightly different but that still has a connection to the music that he makes?’ You could say it’s Latin because we’re singing in Spanish, but I feel like calling it that puts it into too small a category. Please don’t do that,” she explained. “Please don’t do that.” I mean…just everything. Anyway. Like the “Time goes by…so slowly” of “Hung Up” and the “tick, tock, tick tock, tick tock” of “4 Minutes,” Madonna ushers in the new era with yet another count: “One, two, one, two, one, two, cha-cha-cha…” Madame X is a cha-cha instructor, remember? And a bitch. And a lover. And a child. And a mother. But I digress. And we’re off. “Medellín” is a duet, not a solo song with a basic feature: the vocal duties are shared, which will undoubtedly piss off some stans. Luckily, I happen to love both acts. The reggaeton rey holds his own, gradually expanding his duties, from supportive background groans (“mi reina”), to horny Spanish verses (seriously, his voice is arousing) to joyous cries alongside the Queen in the chorus. As is often the case with a featured act on any post-Confessions era Madonna song, Maluma falls to his knees in reverence: “Discúlpame, yo sé que eres Madonna / Pero te voy a demostrar cómo este perro te enamora,” he lusts. (Basically, “excuse me, I know you’re Madonna, but I’m going to show you how this dog falls in love with you.” Iconic.) The blend between the weird, space-y Mirwais production (her verses are not unlike something straight out of Music), Madonna’s sultry delivery – the line “slow down, papi” alone makes the song – and Maluma’s sexy rhythms results in something not entirely like either of them: the key to true collaboration. “Medellín” is effectively a more mature, modern continuation of “La Isla Bonita”; a nostalgic escape, drink in hand, sexy slab of Colombian beef at her side. But there’s a real vulnerability in the lyrics, and even a lingering sadness: “I took a pill and had a dream / I went back to my 17 year / Allowed myself to be naive / To be someone I’ve never been,” she coos. “Medellín” is less about a physical escape, and more about fully letting down her guard, giving Madonna a break from…Madonna. (Thus, Madame X was born.) “Sipping my pain just like champagne / Found myself dancing in the rain with you / I felt so naked and alive / For once I didn’t have to hide myself.” And then, there’s the most revelatory line of all: “I took a trip, it set me free / Forgave myself for being me.” “Forgave myself for being me.” Kind of devastating, honestly. Imagine that kind of liberation. Madame X will surely get hit with the “desperate, trying to be relevant” accusations, as always. Because, as you and I know, an older female pop star can’t keep up with the culture like a younger female pop star. It’s against the law. Or something. But frankly, while the song might be on-trend for enlisting a hit-maker and dipping its toes in radio-friendly reggaeton, it’s still too strange (in a great way) to be considered an obvious grab at radio relevance. In fact, it feels so natural and fresh and effortless, it could be a hit – not that I care what other people think about her. Because fuck ’em all. Madonna, the Queen of Pop, has nothing left to prove fourteen albums deep into her career – and this song feels like she’s thoroughly embraced that truth. She hasn’t sounded so free in a long time. And it’s what she deserves. https://muumuse.com/2019/04/madonna-maluma-medellin-single-review.html/

  21. Many insisted they have been listening to it on repeat since it was released at 5pm today MADONNA'S new single Medellin has received a huge response from fans - with many insisting they haven't stopped listening to it since it was released at 5pm today. The 60-year-old queen of pop, who made the track with Latin superstar Maluma, delighted followers who have had to wait four long years to hear new music from her. One fan wrote: "I can’t handle this @Madonna song I love it so much. I’m going nuts." Another explained how they couldn't switch it off, posting: "I have been listening to it on repeat since 5pm." A third insisted: "Can’t stop listening to #Medellín ." The track is the first taste of what is to come on the singer's Madame X album, which comes out on June 14. Madonna has shared a string of pictures of her dressed as a cowboy bride and smoking a cigar in a single red glove. She appears on the song's cover art dressed in the same outfit draped herself over Colombian singer-songwriter Maluma, having binned the cigar. Early reviews of the song have been positive, with one critic calling the melody "unashamedly pop and instantly infectious" and the vocal "playful and confident". Others have branded the tune a "breezy summer anthem" and heralded it as a return to form for Madonna saying it was a "self-reflective gem of a song". https://www.thesun.co.uk/tvandshowbiz/8886459/madonna-maluma-medellin-single-review/
  22. It should come as a surprise to precisely no one that Madonna rides the Latin pop wave for her first single in four years. From “La Isla Bonita” to Evita, Madonna’s occasional flirtation with Latin America over the years has yielded some career highlights. That, combined with the fact that Madge practically invented the now-common pop-star move of vampiring all that is young and hot from album to album, leads us down to Medellín, Colombia. The reggaeton singer Maluma guides the way, carrying the sultry, dembow-tinged song with his whispered Spanish responses to his duet partner’s eerily still verses. On a track that opens with Madonna counting off a cha-cha-chá like she’s in an ASMR video, Maluma stands out, via actual singing, as the heart and soul really selling this fever dream of young love. The chorus pops off into a joyous celebration because of him. “Medellín” may end up being a bigger moment for Maluma than Madonna, but as far as the pop icon’s semi-recent cool-hunting exploits go, the song sits closer to the top of the heap than the bottom. It is more sonically restrained than her EDM phase, leaving room in the production for tactile details that mostly work (though the echo and Auto-Tune on her vocals is a bit much). Madonna has struggled at times in her late career to find a balance between campy bangers and more mature balladry; “Medellín” is something of a sexy, stylish middle ground. Of course, she couldn’t let a whole song this decade go by without at least one cringe-y moment. “We built a cartel just for love,” she declares, turning the titular city’s violent drug trafficking history into lyrical myopia. https://pitchfork.com/reviews/tracks/madonna-medellin-ft-maluma/ i think its one of their most generous Madonna reviews
  23. The first taste of new music from Madonna's Madame X is a surprising, self-reflective gem of a pop song. Madonna is back, bitches. It’s been four years since our lady released ‘Rebel Heart’ – her EDM influenced thirteenth record – and after a week or so of mysterious social media teasers­ trailing upcoming album ‘Madame X’, the first new music from the OG queen of pop is here. “One, two, one, two, one two, cha cha cha”, a breathy Madonna whispers as she kicks off ‘Medellín’, and suddenly we’re in a sticky Colombian dance studio. The track is a duet with reggaeton megastar, Maluma, a 25-year-old who is yet to make major gains in the western music market, but trust me when I say that in South America, he is a Very Big Deal. In this collaboration, we find Madge in a reflective mood “I took a pill and had a dream/I went back to my seventeenth year,” she sings, “Allowed myself to be naïve/ to be someone I’ve never been”. In the four years that have passed since ‘Rebel Heart’, Madonna has relocated to Lisbon, Portugal, the act of a “Soccer Mom” hoping to help her son David fulfil his dreams of becoming a professional footballer. In October, Madonna shared photos of herself immersed in the Lisboa music scene: “Inspiration for my new record started here in Lisbon in Tejo bar”, she said on Instagram of a small dive bar, a spot where locals watch live Fado music (RIP their low-key existence). All the signs were there that we could expect a Latin sound from M:14. It was on a break from Portugal, in Marrakesh, that Madonna also celebrated her sixtieth birthday last summer. This, too, seems significant when delving into ‘Medellín’. Reflectiveness is an inevitable side-effect of growing older: what would Madonna’s life have been, should she have taken a different turn at 17? What if she approached the world with childlike naivety, rather than as the determined and fearless force we know, powered by the hurt by losing her mother at a young age. What if she ran away to Colombia? In Maluma’s Spanish verse, he calls on “his queen” to take a trip with him to Medellín. “We can go to Detroit if you want/I know where you’re from,” he sings, reminding us again, that Madonna, the highest grossing solo artist of all time, was at one point just a kid in Detroit, dreaming of making it big. The chorus, has hooky cha-cha beats, pausing for Madge to beg Maluma to “slow down, Papi” – a line fans will guzzle up with glee. Start working, meme-makers. And the track is everything we want from a Madonna comeback: it’s fresh, (arguably her best work in years), it sets the tone for a brand new era and, if ‘Medellín’ is an indicator of what’s to come, it’ll be an exciting shift from the electro-pop bangers Madge has offered up in recent times. Sure, this is not the first time we’ve heard her majesty dabble in the Spanish tongue – ‘La Isla Bonita’, being a classic example – but this is Madonna integrating herself into a musical genre that has real weight right now, pulling in an established artist from the Latin pop world to give it some gravitas. From the teasers on social, we know Madame X is a chameleon, so who’s to say if this is a flavour for the album as a whole. She is described as a cha-cha instructor, a professor, a head of state, a housekeeper, an equestrian, a prisoner, as student, a teacher, a nun, a cabaret singer, a saint and a prostitute. We’ve had our dance lesson. Now, what next? Read more at https://www.nme.com/blogs/nme-blogs/madonnas-medellin-left-us-gagging-madame-x-era-2478004#bSu717Zz2LdXdUU2.99
  24. Pop icon details new LP Madame X, featuring Quavo, Swae Lee, more Madonna unveiled a sultry and slinky new song “Medellín,” featuring Colombian singer Maluma. The track is set to appear on the pop icon’s forthcoming album, Madame X, due out June 14th. “Medellín” also finds Madonna reuniting with her longtime collaborator, the French producer Mirwais. The track is centered around a classic cha-cha-chá groove over which Madonna and Maluma trade bilingual verses while the song moves effortlessly between a sparse, understated verse and a brilliant chorus bursting with deep house euphoria. Madonna also unveiled more information about Madame X, is available to pre-order and marks her first new album since 2015’s Rebel Heart. The record features collaborations with Migos’ Quavo, Rae Sremmurd’s Swae Lee and Brazilian singer Anitta. Maluma will also appear on another cut, “Bitch I’m Loca.” In a statement, Madonna said of Madame X, “Lisbon is where my record was born. I found my tribe there and a magical world of incredible musicians that reinforced my belief that music across the world is truly all connected and is the soul of the universe.” A video for “Medellín” is set to premiere next Wednesday, April 24th, during an MTV special airing at 4 p.m. ET. Along with the video premiere, Madonna will discuss Madame X with British DJ Trevor Nelson. Madonna began teasing Madame X on social media earlier this week, releasing a 90-second video that featured snippets of new music while the singer donned various costumes and explained the concept behind the LP. “Madame X is a secret agent,” she said in the video. “Traveling around the world. Changing identities. Fighting for freedom. Bringing light to dark places. She is a dancer. A professor. A head of state. A housekeeper. An equestrian. A prisoner. A student. A mother. A child. A teacher. A nun. A singer. A saint. A whore. The spy in the house of love. I’m Madame X.” Madonna is set to perform at the Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv, Israel this May.
