I mean she did make it apart of an elite group of hits (Holiday, Vogue, La Isla, Like a Virgin) that gets pulled out on almost every tour.

I think the MXT broke the Candy Shop spell at least lol, I don't think we'll ever  hear it live again

Not the case for holiday, isla and vogue tho :Madonna025:

So, Elton John has managed to get to Number 1 on the UK Singles Chart in 2021, this week (with Dua Lipa)

Madonna could get a hit if she collaborated with someone popular! Why does she not do that?

 

She's been doing mostly that for the past 14 years

Honestly I’d rather her not have a number one than have one based on the popularity of a young inferior artist

First off, Madonna has nothing left to prove and I care more about her making great music that the fans will enjoy. That being said. she could have some high charting with the right collaboration and proper promotion from Warner, who already seems to be doing a much better job than her previous label. Streaming is a big deal now and if she wanted to create a buzz around her singles than I think she needs to focus on increasing her streaming power and getting some radio play. Those two area's she needs to increase her presence in because we all know what a force she is when it comes to physical sales. Anything is possible, I just dont ever want her to compromise her art in pursuit of chart positions.

Slightly offtopic, but I can't believe that if a veteran of the music industry, Elthon in this case, works with younger trendy artists to get a hit nobody has shit to say (rightfully, don't get me wrong) but if a woman like Madge did the same thing people would say she's desperate for relevance and uncool. Sexism at its best imo but let's get back on topic ♥

I totally agree with you.

Not strictly true.

Most of her features in the past 14 years have been with artists with little or no chart success and some completely irrelvant (M.I.A., Chance the Rapper, Mike Tyson, Nas, Anitta, Maluma, Swae Lee) None of them had hits when Madonna collaborated with them.

Hard Candy definitely applies, as do the Nicki Minaj and Quavo features. But that's really it.

And she hasn't released a lead single with 'the next huge pop girl' since Britney in 2003, and that was the only time she did it, and it wasn't even for her own album.

people comparing Elton new sucessfull collab with Madonna's lastest collabs seem to forget one important factor, the song him and Dua sing is  "Sacrifice", one fo Elton biggest classic. If Madonna was singing one of her biggest hits like for example La Isla Bonita or Like a prayer with a successful current artist there are strong chances she would have a successful hit again.

Reg is recycling his 'oldies'.
Madge has to admit she has any and only wants you to buy the current product range.

I feel like there have been several missed chances for a big hit since Hard Candy. MDNA had a single chart in the top ten with almost no promotion from Madonna at all, it could have easily hit higher. Rebel Heart had some really great tracks but things got messed up with all those leaks and Madame X was never really about getting hits in the first place I think, it was more something she just really wanted to create for herself. With the biopic coming out and a bunch of recent publicity, I feel like if she dropped a catchy single with a potential collaboration, it could easily be a hit with some promotional help from Warner.

I think as long as she picked the right song and worked with a popular artist right now, she could easily have another hit. Plus we also need to remember she is back with Warner and her stuff will get proper promotion again.

Warner also need to update Madonna's certified sales, as she's now supposedly the third best selling female artist for albums sales in the U.S :eyesroll:

Yeah thats bullshit, she is still the best selling in terms of album sales but the stats need updating. I was recently going through the top 100 albums in Europe and the US and Immaculate Collection is still in the charts. Im actually super pumped right now, there are some really positive things going on right now in the Madonna world, being back with Warner, Biopic, 2022 reissues and her songs are starting to trend on tic tok which is why she is getting so many youtube views lately. We just need to increase her power in the streaming market if we want her to get more hits in the future.

Sorry, I forgot to say, she's the third highest selling female in the U.S, apparently.

Let's be real, exept a miracle, there will be a point where her only chance to have a worldwide global hit again will be to play the nostalgia card and remix one of her biggest hit with a popular current artist. 

I have always thought that since we have all these reissues coming out in 2022 and a biopic that a greatest hits world tour would be a logical idea. Just think about the kind of money and promotion she would make from a tour like that.
