The track is nice! But genuinely, I think M’s vocals get lost. To an average listener, I doubt they would even notice the change in singer from Dua to M. This is strengthened by the fact that Dua even lip syncs a bit of M’s part in the video (i see it is meant to be cute but it is just bizarre and a bit confusing)

And why the frig would you get MADONNA onto your track but then not ask/arrange a video appearance...?!? She is THE music video pap star ?

If Dua’s team shied away from having M in the video to make it more appealing to the youngsters, then maybe M should have stayed away. 

If M said no to Dua’s request to be in the music video, then why even bother doing the track? In its current audio-only state I think it is pretty much dead on arrival regarding exposure and pop culture gains for M.

I do agree with you. But when I think about it... people are talking about Madonna now. Living for her in this. And when it comes to the video, they’re like where’s Madonna?! 
The main point is, Madonna is on everyone’s mind atm I think!

I can see why Madonna said yes. It’s a catchy dance song (which I’m loving and am thankful for)and it keeps her out there with young and classic current artists. As for the video, I think she would have done it if she could , but, she was in great pain from her injuries and possibly having surgery when the video was being filmed. I don’t know why she’s not plugging it on social media yet. But I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt in that she’s really busy with her film project, possibly doing ongoing rehab for her injuries, trying to keep up with her family, and getting ready to travel too for her birthday? Maybe too she’s been writing music when she gets inspired and getting ready for other projects? Sometimes keeping up with life is not an easy thing. 

She has time to facetime with a dog though... :Madonna032:

Just one more thing: this talk about "the song have more chance without M on the video, maybe Dua's team chose not to have her because of that" can be a valid point to a degree but it doesn't make sense. Madonna is very prominent on the cover of the album, are being tagged and talked about in every official article and her name is of course on the track as a featuring.

i certainly don’t think lipa’s team didn’t ask madonna to make an appearance. there must be another reason.

They should have not released this video. There is Missy on it, but not Madonna ? That's nonsense. It's like doing a U2 video with The Edge, but without Bono.

People won't never recognise Madonna's voice in the song, because it's too similar to Dua Lipa's voice. Only Missy's voice is clearly recognized, without reading the credits of the song.

The only reason she did this song is maybe it's a featuring again (she loves them since Hard Candy), and it's probably a way to say : "Madame X era is over". But it's not the begin of a new era.

I hope Warner is not hoping this song to be the symbol of a new Madonna era :suffer:

Let's see now if Warner is announcing something or not Sunday or Monday.

My dream now is that M works with Pat Leonard for the next album, than add Stuart Price to co produce the tracks and then remix everything with The Blessed Madonna to give the tracks that "In your face" and club energy. That would be perfect !

I dont understand all the hate the song is having in youtube...

It's the same hate with "Like A Prayer" on the Immaculate Collection. People loved the Album version and hated the remix version, so they wanted the original version on the Immaculate Collection. It's the same thing with Levitating: People want the Madonna & Missy' vocals in the original version because hate the remix.
