I don't mind "I will always love you" or "Without You" being covers. Whitney and Mariah made their versions staple cos they were that talented. It's a different story with Madonna and covers or duets.

Also:

Released in March 2000, the song was a worldwide hit, reaching No. 1 in many countries, including the United Kingdom, Australia, Iceland, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Finland. The song was the 19th best-selling single of 2000 in the UK and the ninth best-selling single of 2000 in Sweden. The single was not released commercially in the United States, but it reached No. 29 on the Billboard Hot 100 due to strong radio airplay.

I assume she has several songs that people know and could name from her, perhaps she doesn’t have one in particular that is bigger than the rest of her catalogue but I doubt someone with a minimum of musical knowledge couldn’t name a Madonna song...

To be frankly honest, I didn’t know La Isla Bonita was by her until last year but I had definitely heard the song before.

No, but they’re extremely famous and successful renditions which directly clashes with your statement.

Those are stats for  extremely  famous? How are those songs doing on streaming platforms compared with IWALY or WY? American Pie is known as that song by Don McLean and Argentina is more associated with Broadway acts like Elaine Paige. brit9

Her rendition is known and was bought by millions of people, same for American Pie. period. There’s no “but it didnt do as well as IWALY!!!!” Argument to follow lol that’s purely on you and your extremely biased standards and mental gymnastics.

I didn't know having 32m views on YouTube qualifies as extremely successful, lol.

 

Now IWALU and WU are prime examples of extremely successful covers. Did I hurt your stan mood by referencing those songs cos they fit? I hope not. brit9

Successful - sold millions of copies & was the 11th most successful song WW 1997. 

Famous - gets 32m views from a 2015 upload, 19 years after its initial release. It also accumulated over 40 million views from other separate uploads. 
 

it’s the first rendition that comes up when you search it on YT, AM and Spotify. Just deal with it - she made a successful & beloved rendition of an older song.

So that leaves  extremely. bummer1

I don't have to deal with anything. It's you who can't stand the fact that Madonna doesn't have covers as successful as Whitney or Mariah.

No one is saying Madonna’s rendition is the biggest one, though. rip4 You literally invent that so your narrative works. 
 

Uploaded 11 years ago vs uploaded 1 year ago lol

Audio vs Video

A random ass channel vs official channel

But don't worry sweetie, this version was uploaded 9 years ago and it has over 500k views. Every view helps, right? brit9
