New Video: Madonna – ‘Crave (ft. Swae Lee)’

Published: Wednesday 22nd May 2019 by Sam

Madonna has unveiled video for the new single ‘Crave.’

Rae Sremmurd’s Swae Lee joins the Pop queen on the track, which is lifted from her fourteenth album ‘Madame X (due June 14th)’.

The release follows taster cuts ‘Medellin (with Maluma)’, ‘I Rise’, and the Quavo assisted ‘Future.’

Thus far, none of the tracks have impacted the Billboard Hot 100.

Will that change with ‘Crave’? Watch the visual below and let us know…

Visually, the minimalism works. But for a song that lacks to the degree this does, it would have been wise to distract with a few more bells and whistles.

Thus far, ‘Madame X’ – which started off promising to us as a concept – is just not delivering thus far. Perhaps the album itself will change that. At least we hope.

Your thoughts?

    Has she been in the business so long and has so much control she is is doing her own A&R??? For the love of sweet Jesus himself who told her any other the tracks released so far were anything people would want to reorganise the cupboard under the sink to let alone stream over and over or purchase a physical copy of??? ALL TOGETHER NOW: NO M‘AM 💆🏾‍♂️💆🏾‍♂️💆🏾‍♂️

    She looks good and this is my favorite song so far from this era.

    The video helped me like the song more…it’s grown on me. The video is simple and effective

    This is just ok…not enough for the Queen. I love her but I feel like she lost her ability to be ahead of the curve ever since she jumped on the Timbaland bandwagon with Hard Candy giving us Nelly Furtado Loose 2.0. Confessions in 2005 was her last truly groundbreaking album and ahead of the dance pop craze that would reach its apex with the start of Gaga’s career 3 years later bc when it came out top 40 was very R&B-pop driven not dance and Madonna was ahead of the curve. Hard Candy, MDMA, Rebel Heart and Madam X all sound dated not fresh. Sonically Madam X wants to be the successor to 2003’s American Life but the tracks aren’t there and her vocals sound uninspired. I’ve seen Madge multiple times live and I was actually blown away at how good of a live singer she was during the Reinvention and Confessions tours as evidence her vocals dramatically improved from her earlier days. Since Rebel Heart though she sounds very hoarse, too much vibrato and flat like she’s no longer training her voice properly. If she’s doing an intimate tour I hope she takes her live vocals more seriously and gets it back in check. True Blue and La Vie En Rose were especially great during the Rebel Heart Tour in 2016.

      Hard Candy was the S_hit. She’s not me is CLASSIC MADONNA. Miles Away sounds like a beautiful b-side off Like a Virgin. Hard Candy was her last GREAT body of work. Vocals on point. Lyrics funny and intense. Hard Candy = Classic…… Then she fell off – MDNA = Trash, Rebel Heart = Trash, This new music = Trash

        Hard Candy a classic ? LMAO such a nice illusion

      • XYZ May 23, 2019

        Hard Candy is not a classic.

        Actually, it wasn’t a bad album and overall her last enjoyable album. But is was dated the day it came out. And i guess that’s what Seth was saying. She used to be a trendsetter, but followed the timbaland trend with hard candy. Again, it was a nice album, but nothing fresh.

        As for all of the following albums, each had some good songs on it, but none was listenable in its entirety. She somehow lost it and is now even losing her voice. She sounds so bored on every track.

        I miss the confessions Madonna, the one actually putting creativity and work in her output.

    this entire era has been a HUGE EMBARRASSMENT!!

    Madonna is way out of her element.

    I get so sick and tired of her pairing up with artists 3 times her junior. Every song sounds like it would appear on the album of the artist who is featured vs. being a Madonna track.

    She needs to commit to one sound & make music that is cohesive.

    This Madame X album is GOD AWFUL! I don’t know what kind of yes men she has in her camp, but the project isn’t going to perform well commercially. The critics have already torn apart these early releases.

    I fukcs with madonna…but I’m not feeling her new music so far…
    But I know when she goes on tour…she’s going to make alot of money

    She actually can put on a show

    No smoke and mirrors

    • SMH May 23, 2019

      Lol sorry but Madonna practically invented smoke and mirrors when it comes to putting on shows.

    • XYZ May 23, 2019

      With madonnas tours it’s always smoke and mirrors. But that’s what makes them enjoyable. She invites you into another world. People don’t really go there to hear her sing, they want to see the show and what she has up her sleeve this time

  8. Fancy BISH May 22, 2019

    In MY OPINION, from the songs we’ve heard, Madonna’s songwriting and the production has been very clean, precise and not littered with annoying and bratty flourishes…it’s not abrasive and I’m digging it! She isn’t saying her name 1,000 times (fingers crossed lol) and the lyrics are universal and leaves some space in between 🤳🏽 I rather have mellow than banging in my ear!

  9. eric May 22, 2019

    Her look is great, but I like none of the released songs.

  10. PinotNoir May 22, 2019

    1/ The backlash American Life received in the US shook Madge into playing it safe.

    2/ Quinquagenarians don’t stay up all night streaming Youtube from 10 different tabs. Plus, why would a 50-something buy a record made by a 50-something that doesn’t address 50-somethings’ issues?

    If I were Pop’s Queen, I’d boldly write more relatable songs and call a cat a p-u-s-s-y. Talk about dating at my age, how the industry wants to put me to pasture, how I have daydreams of walking my daughter down the aisle … or not!

    Keeping up with the youngins ain’t never been what set her shining star apart.

  11. Caleb May 22, 2019

    It is actually kind of boring.

  12. MUSICHEAD May 23, 2019

    I LOVE this song

  13. zach May 24, 2019
