I don't think this exists, so there you go.

Her brand new single/video was just released:

I wasn't sure, but it does stick with you. Sounds very radio friendly.

Also, loving the album cover.

Probably the most fun she's had in a video since the 90's, and probably her best video in a decade.

I wish the voices didn't have to sound so overprocessed today, but the song is catchy as it goes along. I enjoy all the self-parody elements (and all that with the breast feeding, which was probably done just to get some tongues clucking). The best part is when they're in the white dresses and I'm Breathless hair.

The album cover is nice, but the song is wack.

MIA's new track, on the other hand, is FIRE!

Cheerleaders, football players and lingerie? She's too old for this kind of stuff. The song is a mess, the Nicki and MIA features were gratuitous.

I actually think, while this may not compare to some of her earlier work, that this could be a great single for her to come back with. Nothing can be worse than the Hard Candy album. At least this seems like it'll put her back on the charts again. And it's addictive.

I have to listen to MIA's new song, I've heard the best.

I dont know what it is about Madonna but I have hated all of her recent releases and this one included. What an awful song. I think the last song of hers I liked was Ray of Light. Her music has gone downhill. As a big fan of hers in the 80's, 90's and part of 2000's she is sorely disappointing me.

Well, she doesn't have a great voice, and her songs now tend to be these overproduced computer generated sounding garbage forgettable songs. I imagine her setlist this weekend will be mostly stuff from the 90s and earlier.

I don't think the vocals on that cheerleader song even sound human, let alone sound like Madonna.

Now that you mention forgettable...I did like the song she sang with Justin Timberlake but like you said once it's not on the radio is forgettable. The songs dont have any staying powering like her 80's and 90's songs.

The Toni Basil is much better and still is played on the air waves.

I remember hearing 4 Minutes on the radio when it was released about 4 years ago and it sounded like they edited her voice to replicate a 12 year old girls. The last album I liked from her was Confessions on A Dancefloor. It just seems to me like she is trying to prolong her relevancy by using cheap features to get on the airwaves and stay "hip". That being said I just read online that her new album is #1 in 35 countries according to pre-order sales, so I guess something is working for her.

It's a shame that she's getting this huge showcase and it's for this lackluster single. I think the song is very cute and passable and radio will eat it up, but for Madonna it seems a bit forgettable. I wish it was something more like Hung Up, or even from Candy Shop you had Give It To Me which was fantastic.

It's not one of her better efforts, but you have to admire her longevity. The pop music scene is not exactly known for long careers, but she's still here after 30 years!! Countless stars have come and gone during that time, and she has outlived them all. That deserves respect.

I hate it. I admit, she LOOKS good, and dang, if someone didn't beat me to the Toni Basil comparison! LOL I don't mind light dance music, but this is far too techno, and her voice is WAY overprocessed. It certainly doesn't have the infectious hook of "Express Yourself", and the cheerleaders make it SO age inappropriate. Not that I think she should be doing syrupy standards.... Granted, Cher's "Believe" was heavily processed... but at that time, that kind of thing was not stale and overdone...and Cher is also a better singer to begin with. I'm not sure what Madonna needs, but it certainly ain't this!

I guess to show what I'm talking about, there is a fine line between an older artist updating their sound, but still remaining true to their style... and an older artist trying to be too trendy, and doing things that aren't age appopriate. This is the kind of thing that workd for an older female artist, IMO:
