  • Is uniqueness reserved for "a-listers" then? Billie Ellish's tracks are more unique for me to be honest. Nah, pointless discussion as it is all a matter of taste. case closed.

      Well it’s unique in that Madonna is very clearly offering something on MX that other a-list artists aren’t. MX brings many genres to the table that aren’t known on a global scale.

      And of course we have to categorise it somehow. Madonna is an a-lister so I went with that category. Otherwise we’d all be saying it wasn’t anything unique because clearly someone, somewhere is performing these genres on a regular basis

      Billie Ellis’s isn’t unique. She’s just the current ‘different’. Not knocking her as she does what she does very well, but we’ve seen many come to the table with the first record and serve something fresh. But her style and approach is already very comparable to Kate Bush.

            You kind of fell into your own trap here. Billie Eilish is different, not just current different, but she really is. It's a fact. That she somehow reminds you of Kate Bush is beside the point as Kate was never an A-lister, she was always an off artist when it comes to mainstream.

            If you stand by what you said, then Madonna was never truly different for any of her eras (including MX which you're "defending" here), as she always emulated the same pool of off artists where you'd put Kate also.

            Both Billie and Madonna brought something new and unique to the pop arena this year. That's a fact. Which one is more unique is a matter of personal taste.

                • I like the video! I expected something a but more colorful but this was nice and sweet.

                  • What a beautiful video... Chilled, yet powerful. I loved the shadows of the ships at the end... an allusion to the slave trade. So what if the GP isn't paying attention, their loss. She's doing the right thing and producing amazing art. Go M!

                      • Is it just me ir does she seem really dedicated to the 'Madame X' project? During the past two eras, it seems like she only cared about business, while this time around, she's actually in it with her heart - irrespective of what the general audience thinks of it (and that's always been a huge priority for her).

                              She's put the music first this time, that's what feels different. The past few albums have felt like mere delivery mechanisms for tours and other products. She's been genuinely inspired by the music this era and M is always at her best when that is the case
                              She's got a cute little voice but she doesn't really have any fans...none that can fight....

                                • I hope she has or gets a chance to make even more videos from the MX era. All the videos so far have been great and they all highlight the music very well.
                                  I'd like to see a visual for 'Faz Gostoso' and 'Extreme Occident' to round out the different 'tastes' of the album.

                                  On a different note, I was supposed to give Bedtime Stories another spin but (I'm mentally a 100 years old I guess, I don't like Spotify all that much) couldn't find a download to put on my phone so I can listen while hiking with my dog, music comes alive much more when I'm in nature.
                                  I ordered some of her albums online today so I can just rip them and listen legally. Review still coming, but not yet LOL.

                                  • Very nice video, well done and you can see how important that song is to her. I really wish for even more Madame X videos cause all of them were mostly done so well.

                                    • I like the video as well. I didn’t expect to like it that much. She looks really good in it and she seemed to have a lot of fun. The end with the ships though...damn. :(

                                      • I love the video: the cinematography, the colour schemes, the energy; and I think she looks fantastic.

                                        Is it just me or do her vocals sound a lot clearer in the video audio?

                                          Noticed this as well, but I'm not entirely sure if that's just mindf*ckery or actually so. I think maybe they mixed the lead vocal with a bit more 'oomph'.

                                          I also loved to see her really enjoying herself during some scenes, smiling, being "care-free" for the lack of a better word.

                                                • Fantastic video with a lot of replay value along the lines of Medellin and Crave. The other 3 videos from this era are also excellent but a bit too intense watch more than a few times.

                                                  • Very nice video! I'm so glad she's giving us diversity in droves both with music and visuals this time around
