    After 3 weeks (?) i’m finding whilst i LIKE this album, I’m rarely in the mood to actually listen to it :D

    Owing that to my senile old age that would prefer a bunch of You Must Love Me’s to noisy latino bangerz :disco:

    #21 in UK in week three. Thought it would have a heavier fall.

    I did wonder, but then it did stabilise slightly in week two from the initial midweek. Thankfully the Glastonbury effect didn't work to any great extent, either.

    It can only be on about 35k though. Silver is going to be a very long way off.

    FAZ GOSTOSO video in September/October will push it back up and ensure there's enough momentum for the album to become a STOCKING FILLER for the Christmas season. Maybe also a classy video for Looking For MERCY to coincide with BREXIT? It may strike a CORD with the NATION.

    So hopefully that ensures that it will finally hit No. 1 in January when the Madame X Tour residency hits London and the DVD/CD reissue is out. The tour will help especially as it will include notable classics and hits like "HUMAN NATURE" and "EASY RIDE" from her repertoire (as per her insta stories).

    IN YER FACE BRUCE!

    Ugh Faz Gostoso is so good do you really think you can do enough promo for it to become a hit Suedey?

    Madame X is not festive, surely.

    I need FAZ GOSTOSO/Medellín medley at the Latin Grammys 2020 with Anitta and Maluma after she sweeps the board with a record 8 wins for Madame X :disco:

    (which will send Madame X back up to No. 199 for one week (WITH A BULLET) on the Bareback 200)

    I was on a boat for the day yesterday in Portugal and they played Medellin (everyone paid no attention) and then Faz Gostoso. Everyone was dancing and asking who it was- and this was all British women.

    BOOK OF STATS CLOSED.

    I'm kind of obsessed with how utterly appalling she is in interview these days. It's approaching Barbra Streisand levels of humourlessness. :D

    "If I'd told you back in 1979, when you first arrived in New York, that in 2019 we'd be talking about your 14th album..."
    "I would have ignored you. You would have been a total stranger :DAF:"
    "But... a beautiful stranger?"
    "Yes, that is a good song :square:"

    She just fucking hates interviewers who ask lazy questions. If you want a good interview, don't bring up her age/longevity - it's boring!

    I'd say she reached that level in 2008/2009. We are beyond Streisand at this stage and dangerously veering into Mariah Carey levels of 'divaness' but without the Mariah humour...

    You know, I downloaded this album three weeks ago or so, and I haven’t listened to it yet.

    It’s not that I’m not enthused for it, more like I’m worried I’m not going to like it

    Thing is, whilst I’m liking all the effort, what is actually going to be the proper, sent to radio second single? And how is radio going to know that?

    Surely she’s saving Faz or Crazy for that...

    I think there will be a FAZ GOSTOSO video somehow.. although the longer she waits the smaller the (already tiny) window becomes for it to become sort of a hit in Brazil and other South American countries potentially.

    I'd like a CRAZY video but she has made it clear that she's run out of money for videos...

    What is this nonsense about no money for videos? We’ve had more videos for this album than probably any other of hers, haven’t we?!

    Come on, Madonna, create that Kickstarter campaign to fund the Faz Gostoso video
    I wouldn't pay for your albums, but I'd put money on THAT

    Seriously though... her instagram posts for that dreadful skincare range would often get 'trolled' by dissatisfied fans, and a few months ago she posted an update that they were 'sold out' or something and added a comment to say that this gives her money to make more videos for the album.

    So I do think some of it is funded through that.

    In any case I expect the BATUKA video will be the cheapest of the lot so far. Medellin, God Control and to a lesser extent Dark Ballet would have cost a few bob. CRAVE (car park glam eleganza) wouldn't have cost much and I expect BATUKA to have been shot on a similar budget.
