Madonna leeching off of relevant artists?

214 posts in this topic

2003: Britney Spears + turned down by Eminem

2008: Justin Timberlake, Timbaland, Pharrell

2009: Lil' Wayne

2012: Nicki Minaj, LMFAO & M.I.A.

2015: Kanye West, Diplo, Mike Tyson (iconic), Nicki Minaj + the many artists who appeared in Bitch, I'm Madodo

2019: Maluma, Mykki Blanco, and who knows who else

 

*Also "reconciled" with Gaga after her successful film and Oscar win even though she's been throwing nasty remarks and shade for almost a decade. (Remember the cringy "Born This Way" / "She's Not Me" performance?)

Yes, she's always done this. She's really desperate to be relevant to the youth but people don't want to listen to women the same age as their grandparents.

Her whole routine is outdated and predictable.

This is a brand new and totally unheard of take before.

it's more like symbiosis

Madonna gets momentum by collabs with younger artists

and these younger artists get industry validation by working with a legend

everyone wins

I wouldn't call it 'leeching off'. What's wrong with collabing with artists who are hot at the moment? :biblio: Beyonce does it all the time too (e.g. Gaga with Telephone, JBalvin with Mi Gente, Ed with Perfect), it's perfectly fine.

Yeah but Beyonce is still relevant and 100 years younger.

Those collabs did not benefit her own albums, though? :huh:

She's sold over 300 million total, one era is hardly a career killer like it is for someone else

 

She can afford to take risks, hop trends, or experiment.

 

I mean, at this point, what does she have to lose?

Sooooo, there's an age cap on when you can collaborate with current artists?

She also wanted an Eminem in 2003  I believe but he turned her down :deadbanana:

 

She’ll always be a legend and the Queen of Pop but the trendchasing is damaging her legacy.

That's besides the point, it still benefited her career. As I said I don't see anything wrong with it and it's perfectly normal.

Even Madonna struggles to get industry validation nowadays let alone to give it to someone else.

She's been hopping on trends since three albums ago, and it looks like it will continue this time around.


The visual album. The Spanish / Latin influences that was, by the way, popular two years ago. :ahh: She's always late.

So when Madonna does a collab (or two) for an album it's leeching, but when everyone runs to Cardi B or Nicki for a collab or Ari uses big names y'all celebrate the artists that do? Alright... :coffee:

Its annoying because I feel like she didnt need them to succeed. Even if they were flops she couldve just flopped solo.

I don't know if it works or not, but it's the intention about it. I remember different artists saying how cool it was to work with a legend like Madonna, her experience and career, etc etc

it can be pr talk, but I mean, they could have also turned down the offer, so whatever

And Frank Ocean, 

Drake

Shakira

Sean Paul

Kendrick, etc.

At least M did super late into her career.

 

I was hoping for an Adele stan making this thread. Not even a Taylor stan can make these threads anymore.
