    I love the new single “Medellin”. It’s a different sound for her and very catchy with multiple listens. I do think there will be better songs on the album, but I’m very optimistic and excited for this new era. I hope she can get some Grammy love too.

    I think she could receive some additional Grammy nominations as I believe the Grammys will want to honor her for career and longevity. She’s north of 35 years in an industry with a shelf life of 5-7 years for most artists. If the album can match the quality of True Blue or Confessions, a Pop Album nomination is practically assured. If the album can come close to Ray of Light (even if it falls a little short), she will almost certainly be nominated for AOTY at the very least.

    The critical reception to Medellin seems to be solid but I don’t know if it is ROTY worthy unless it becomes a huge hit. Still it could snare a Pop Duo nomination as that category has a low bar. If there is an instant classic on the album, ROTY and SOTY noms could happen. Pop Solo is also possible depending on what’s released from the album. Technical noms related to the album are likely, even if they go to other people.

    Then again, the album could be the same quality as he last three and the Grammys will ignore her. It’s far too early to say what Grammys await her as she can run the gamut from none to boatload as the spectrum is wide with her.

    Madonna hasn’t been nominated for a Grammy since Confessions on a Dance Floor.

    I think her chances are slim to none. They’ve seemed to have fallen out of favor with her.

    Her best shot would be for a Lifetime Achievement award.

    The days of Madonna, Cher, Janet, Celine, Mariah, & J.Lo having success on Pop radio are unfairly over. Women over 50 (hell even 30) in music are obviously disregarded because of ageism.

    This will happen to Beyoncé, Taylor, Rihanna, P!NK, & GaGa. It doesn’t matter how great the material is or how large of a core fan base they have. It’s unfortunate.

    SO MUCH has changed in the last 20/30 years. In the 80’s and (to a lesser extent) 90’s Aretha, Tina, Cher and Diana (who were at the age that Madonna, Janet, Celine and Mariah are today) could still populate the Hot 100. Even Barbra Streisand, who was never much of a singles artist, managed a top ten hit in her 50’s.

    The 90’s was a more diverse era of music. Today’s generation are fickle, impatient, and constantly jumping on one bandwagon to the next. Plus streaming helps newer artists establish a microwave fan base.

    A lot of younger listeners are also incredibly ignorant when it comes to legacy acts.

    I like that it’s low-key and I hope that carries through to the whole album. I’m not really fond of Maluma, but at least she’s doing new things.

    It is definetely a grower. I think Medellin has good ideas and good production, but there are some bad calls (like the cha cha cha). It’s a slow beat well constructed, and the more I listen to it the more I like. It’s weird, a different song for Madonna but still rich and a good listen. Just those little details. I hope it becomes a moderate hit

    Critical and commercial success of a non-trend chasing album from Madonna will garner her some return nods. Madonna in her 60s can definitely reap rewards her peers can only get posthumously.

    “Medellin” is … fine. Doesn’t feel lead single worthy at all. Different though, so points for that at least.

    This is her first home-run lead single since 2005, and the first time in eons her music doesn’t sound dated on arrival. It’s fresh, infectuous, original and effortlessly summery.

    The visuals she has created around the music are breath-takingly on point. The Madame X persona is meta level Madonna: an alter ego who has several sub alter egos.

    Since David Bowie died, I can’t imagine any other pop musician being able to reinvent themselves this creatively at sixty.

    Errr, not sure about her chances, since she has never been a Grammy darling. I think her last one was in 2007 for the Confessions Tour (Best Long Form Music Video), and her last nomination, 4 minutes or celebration. Put in perspective that she is a pop artist in an incredibly ageist industry, I think the chances are slim.

    on the other hand, this is an incredibly weak year, so she could surprise us all (I would love that)

    Medellìn is top 10 on iTunes. For an artist in her 60s, that’s very impressive. Unfortunately the song will free fall in a week or two.

    The teaser for the music video looks artsy. Maybe MTV will nominate it for technical categories.

    Madonna is performing at Billboard Awards! Maybe she will win Millennium Award (?).

    Her last Grammy nomination was for Celebration. Hard Candy also got a few noms. Best Long Form Video for Confessions Tour is her last win.

    BTW the video for Medellín is amazing. She should get some noms for this.

    Darling, Madonna is the Queen of Pop like… what is she doing with that sexist Spaniard? And the lyrics for this new single… ridiculous. It’s cringe-worthy seeing how she is trying to stay relevant at her 60s. She should do her music and that’s it. Young people doesn’t care about her.

    Lena Headey hasn't got an Emmy for Game of Thrones????? Emmys you need to win her right now!!
