She’s at it again. If you think that your prayers are answered that she should act her age, then you need to pray more. If you are tired praying for it, then you better accept the fact that she’s Madonna and she can do what she wants; put up or you shut up. The latest video of Madonna which is the third single from her hit less “Rebel Heart” Album has just been premiered over Tidal. Minutes before this review was written, this writer finally saw it on Vevo. Prior to watching this video, I have already set some warning signs for myself.
This will not be a groundbreaking video along the likes of “Like A Prayer, Bedtime Story, Frozen, Nothing Really Matters, Human Nature, Take A Bow, Rain, and other iconic videos. I have already embraced the reality that she no longer is fond of spending so much money to create inspiring music videos, thus you see several videos with her just dancing on a backdrop since “Hard Candy” era. Second, she is desperate to have a hit, thus when it was announced that this will be a star studded video, I say this is a Madonna video therefore, you will see the A-listers in just a blink of an eye.
I was glad I warned myself as my hunch was correct. The video was just pure fun nothing thought provoking. As always there were lots of teasing moments but not enough to court controversy to help the video go viral. There she goes again, writhing, kissing a man and a woman. Since she produced “Celebration” video, it seems that she is now fond of family affairs; Rocco and David are in this video again.
The Good Things
Well, the animated socks were colorful and delightful to watch. Musically, the song is good the some lyrics will grow on you like “coz I’m a bad bitch,” “go hard and go home,: and of course “bitch, I’m Madonna. Beyonce looks beautiful “vogueing” in here.
The Bad Things
Wish that she goes back to creating inspiring and amazing music videos. Chris Rock, what are you doing in this Madonna video. She’s kissing a girl again, it’s time to refrain doing this act.
With these thoughts, I gave it a 3 stars rating out of five stars just for the sake of being a fun video.
