Generic but Catchy , but the Raps do not belong there
on March 8, 2012
Before this song was officially released, a demo version of it was leaked on the Internet. Madonna's minions quickly put the kibosh on it and yanked out of cyberspace. What we heard that was touted as Madonna's upcoming single was not a good sign. It was sub-par to the kind of music she have been making before. But it WAS a demo, so the finished version is probably going to be better...right?
Well, I guess not. The finished version of Give Me All Your Luvin sounds a lot like the leaked demo except that Madonna had M.I.A. and Nicki Minaj make guest appearances and I wonder why they even bother.
The song itself is generic pop, but typical of Madonna's lesser efforts, upon first listen, it is no big deal, but then you found you can't get that hook out of your head. The raps by MIA and Nicki Minaj sounded like they were shoe-horned in and were totally out of sync with the rest of the song. Madonna should have leave the song as it was in the leaked demo.
By now this single had become another top 10 hit for Madonna, and I think it is a sad commentary on the state of radio today that Madonna have to make music so below her ability in order to get airplay while her more substantial work from American Life and Confessions On A Dance Floor were ignored.
