I thought Madonna sounded great on her last feature that peaked at #8 on the Hot 100...
I think it’s an immense flex.
This whole era Dua has said “fuck your expectations, I’m making a sound” and this is another level on that. She could have gotten Ari within 3 rings of her phone... but she’s aiming for her own legacy, and longevity, with this entire rollout, era, music etc etc and putting a “Ft. Madonna” is that bit of lil something extra that is delicious.
I think it would be more exciting for Dua to put out a remix of one of the songs which features a sample of a classic Madonna track instead.
I would totally collab with my Grandmother. She has range.
More exciting than to have the pop goddess in person on her song? Make it make sense.
I like that Dua is essentially doing this for herself and no one else. I'm sure the execs had quite a few other in people in mind, as did her fanbase but the fact she's said fuck it and is paying her respects to the woman who inspired the album? A true power move.
Now let's just pray Madonna did more than one vocal take.
For a one-off collaboration, when she didn't bother on (at least) her last four albums? itsnotrealistic.gif
Madonna does benefit from all the newer stars she’s collaborated with, but let’s not act like it’s not a huge thing to get some sort of validation from her.
Didn’t the press go wild with the Britney kiss and call it “passing of the torch” moment? Weren’t there tons of articles that came out when Madonna called Taylor a “Princess of Pop”? Didn’t Gaga absolutely fume when Madge called Born This Way reductive and that shit went on in the media for years?
Being called the “Madonna of the generation”, even though I’m sure Madge herself may secretly resent it, is still one of the highest compliments you can give a rising pop star. And that kind of press can only look good for Dua, as well.
The girls without taste still not appreciating Madame X...I am not surprised.
I think most appreciation of Madame X is despite the vocals, not because of them.
At least this will give Madonna her next UK Number 1 single since 4 Minutes I believe? And I'm happy about that!
Thank you in advance Dua!
Well you'd be wrong considering your initial post wasn't about the quality of her vocals, but the effort used to lay them down on the tracks. And the clearest thing about Madame X is how much effort she placed into the project, period.
Did @Someboy just delete their post and everyone else's posts dragging them for it? I guess you can erase your messy past if you're a mod.
It was about the quality of her vocals. The original poster referred to doing more than one vocal take; I suggested she hadn't on her last few albums because honestly, I find it hard to believe most of them were considered a satisfactory outcome after multiple attempts at getting it 'right'.
Anyway, not to completely derail a Dua Lipa thread by talking entirely about Madonna, I think I'll end it there.
Dua can get Stevie Nicks on Cool next and then I can combust with internal joy.
What happened in your life for saying Me Against the Music is not good?. The song reminds iconic. Period.
No, I absolutely did not, and I wouldn’t do that. Another moderator deleted the posts.
I don’t believe my comment was ageist, at all. Mentioning the reality of someone’s age is not ageist, I find that slightly absurd. I’m also, well a little confused to put it politely, after reading a couple months’ worth posts of similar comments about Lady Gaga needing Ariana Grande for Rain on Me, not to mention several years worth of posts on Pink, Kelly Clarkson, Beyoncé, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Katy Perry, and Lady Gaga again to name a few regarding all of their commercial fortunes dwindling as they get deeper into their thirties or early forties. I didn’t say Dua should avoid working with Madonna because of their age difference, and I don’t believe that. I won’t repeat the comment, and I wouldn’t undermine another moderator’s decision, but know I wouldn’t delete it.
Not that most of us not knowing better anyway but Golden stuck around way post the hardcore fans.
You didn't mention her age though. You described her as a grandma (which is incorrect) and eluded to the fact she's too old to be on a song with Dua.
Given the reaction your post got, and the fact it got deleted for a reason by another mod apparently, I guess we can agree you're not really understanding the issue. Maybe just take a step back, recognise what you said was out of tone, and hopefully learn.
