Madonna + Swae Lee| Crave | May 10

Recommended Posts

I think that Madonna writing a song about a survivor of a mass shooting who went on to protest against gun laws in the usa and other issues is more inspiring than taylor swift singing about herself in a video that looks like a washing powder advert

Some things aren't really debatable. Shake It Off by Taylor Swift went to #1. Is it good? No. Your opinion isn't the ultimate truth either. If this is how low the bar is for M in 2019 its the most shocking time in her career.

actually im not a fan of taylor swift but shake it off was catchy as hell ..her new song ME is like a reductive version of it

You can't give a song credit just because of the important speech in the beginning. If the song is about that, its pretty much insulting given the lack of thought put into the song.

Haven't heard ME and probably never will but no... catchy doesn't mean its good. Children are into catchy songs, thats about it. Kids are the ones listening to the charts and knowing what is #1. Charts died years ago. No real music fan cares about any of that. I've never had a song stuck in my head in my entire life. Fuck "catchy"/filler material.

If this is Madonna when she's inspired, I don't know what to tell you. Disappointing at the very least

I didn't claim to be a musical expert, but I'm not 12 years old and I know that a song like Shake It Off is clearly trash. Clown music.

The corniest most generic songs in the world reach high in the charts, but its only because children are the ones paying attention. Those "artists" don't grow, they just make money to continue acting dumb. They're just brands. @adamsapple

well yeah because at the end of the day its about making money

Yes, of course, but it shouldn't be and we all know that. This is why people should be more attentive to album credits, to see who writes their own music. If somebody was bad at their job, they'd get fired. Some of these people couldn't write a good song if their lives depended on it.

HC was very successful if you compare it to her much recent albums... & at last was a concept album with very clear direction & style.... MX is mess album (from what I see till now) very confusing!!! I can’t get the idea of MX & then suddenly rappers & NY style music... I thought it’s about Lisbon?? 🤔🤔🤔 & then theater tour 💀 

How exactly is Madame X a mess for you? You have only so far heard an appetizer of 3 out of 18 tracks from a global futuristic album. The music is the soul of the universe and is truly connected with music from all around the world. When you once listen to it from start to finish you'll understand. It's a musical journey dealing with the political aspects and injusticies of the world. Urging us the deal with the crisis and unrighteousnesses we're facing in the world. Music inspired from different cultures, such as Brazilian, Jamacian, Colombian and Portugese traditions. Singing in Spanish and Portugese and a medley of both North and South African influneces as well as some Carribean abroad. And in many of the songs you'll hear clearly the Portugese and Latin appropriation. Like in "Crave". It draws on elements of Lisbon's traditional Fado Music, but with a modern twist. Blending pop with hip hop, R&B and a contemporary trap production. The featuring of Swae Lee. Brilliant. Madonna, Mirwais and her producers have taken and filtered the culture traditions and sound into her music. Making it her own. There's a vulnerability to "Crave", which also shares the genre of fado's resignation and fatefulness. The heartbreaking, craving and loneliness of fado's traditions. "You know I just can't change. This is how I'm made". She channels the low key and chill, melancolic essence of that aspect of Portugese music. Mellow, vulnerable and romantic. Like fado music, but without belting it out. Don't you think?

With "Medellin" she's conquering reggaeton and proves she still can mesh genres and these days global trends and bring it into her own world of music without making it effortlessly. It's an ease and lush in this more sultry and sonically restrained track we haven't heard from her in years. And with "I Rise", the politically-charged and reflective mid-tempo ballad, she's showing her more vulnurable side again. “There’s nothing you can do to me that hasn’t been done, not bulletproof, should have run from a gun”. An anthem for anyone facing adversity or discrimination. Lyrically it fits very well into the concept of ‘Madame X. It's empowering and uplifting. She's given a voice to all the marginalized people. Embracing the negatives in her life and turning them into positive. Given them strenght. “Cause I’m going through it. Yeah, I know you see the tragic in it. Just hold on to the little bit of magic in it. I can’t break down now, I can’t take that, I rise”. The lyrics about running from bullets and guns  gets a clear political angle due to the spoken intro by the young activist Emma González, who uses her voice for gun control. "Madame X is a cha-cha leader. A head of state. Madame X is a secret agent. Traveling around the world. Changing identities.” Surely you can understand the concept of this album reading this? And what about the tour? Incorporating the intimaticy with Lisbon's tradtions of fado, morna and furnana music, for an example, and infiltrate that vicinity into a Theatre tour. Makes perfect sense to me.

Next she takes us on a journey to the dancehall music of Jamaica... To the Future with our Queen.

its what record deals want though ..its a contract...unless youre prince who just went off and did his own thing after his record deal problems ...

Madonna is still required to do things what her record company asks - she did rant and rave about it on instagram if you remember about writing songs etc etc ..asking guy for help ...

The collabs do seem pretty random, I didn't even know she'd met Swae Lee. She probably just likes their music from afar or her kids do or something. I hadn't heard of any of them either. Even with Swae, I only knew his name, I don't know any of his music. Isn't the Anitta collab a cover?

Is this a batlefield or a thread to discuss the song " Crave "?

I suggest you to use the ignore button, have some respect for the other members.

Its turned into one's cry for attention, apparently.
