Give Me All Your Luvin’: ritorno in grande stile per Madonna

facebook.com/madonna

E’ stato appena pubblicato sui suoi profili social: oggi è la release ufficiale di Give Me All Your Lovin’, primo singolo del nuovo album MDNA, grande ritorno per la popstar più pop e star di tutti i tempi.

La canzone, orecchiabilmente dance ma nulla di stupefacente, vede il featuring con M.I.A. (che adoro!) e la rapper Nicki Minaj (a cui Madonna ha regalato un bacio sulle labbra per il suo 29° compleanno – uh che novità!).

Il video comincia con la frase “Fans can make you famous, a contract can make you rich, the press can make you a superstar, but only luv can make you a player” (e poi capirete perché). A darci il benvenuto ci sono le due featurer in versione cheerleader che introducono Madonna con tanto di passeggino, occhiali da diva e trench autunnale, per poi lasciare spazio a corpetti neri, calze a rete, ballerine versione manga e giocatori di football americano su cui fare allegramente stage diving.

Ciò che Madonna vuole proporci è una serie di autotributi in relazione al suo percorso musicale, seguita a ruota da M.I.A. e Nicki Minaj che ripropongono il look in versione hip-hop diva style, con tanto di capello biondo e riccio che fa tanto Vogue primi anni ’90.

Enjoy!

L-U-V Madonna
Y-O-U You wanna
I see you coming and I don’t wanna know your name
L-U-V Madonna
I see you coming and you’re gonna have to change the game
Y-O-U You wanna
Would you like to try?
Give me a reason why
Give me all that you got
Maybe you’ll do fine
As long as you don’t lie to me
And pretend to be what you’re not

Don’t play the stupid game
Cause I’m a different kind of girl
Every record sounds the same
You’ve got to step into my world
Give me all your love and give me your love
Give me all your love today
Give me all your love and give me your love
Let’s forget about time
And dance our lives away

L-U-V Madonna
Y-O-U You wanna
Keep trying don’t give up, it’s if you want it bad enough
L-U-V Madonna
It’s right in front of you, now tell me what you’re thinking of
Y-O-U You wanna
In another place, at a different time
You can be my lucky star
We can drink some wine
Burgundy is fine
Let’s drink the bottle every drop

Don’t play the stupid game
Cause I’m a different kind of girl
Every record sounds the same
You’ve got to step into my world
Give me all your love and give me your love
Give me all your love today
Give me all your love and give me your love
Let’s forget about time
And dance our lives away

Give me all your love boy
You can be my boy, you can be my boy toy
In the nick of time, I can say a sicker rhyme
Cause it’s time for change, like a nickel or a dime
I’m roman, I’m a barbarian, I’m Conan
You was sleeping on me, you were dosin’
Now move, I’m goin’ in

You have all the L-U-V
I gave you everything you need (now move!)
Now it’s up to Y-O-U
Are you the one, shall we proceed?

Me it. Licks. I’m so swag sh-t
Glad, no one gave you this
It’s super sonic, bionic, you rainy hicks
So I act like i’m off tricks
Let’s pay it with sticks
I’mma say this once, yeah, I don’t give a sh-t

Don’t play the stupid game
Cause I’m a different kind of girl
Every record sounds the same
You’ve got to step into my world

Give me all your love and give me your love
L-U-V Madonna
Give me all your love and give me your love
Y-O-U You wanna
Give me all your love and give me your love
Give me all your love today
Give me all your love and give me your love
Let’s forget about time
And dance our lives away

Annunci

Mary J. Blige per la colonna sonora di The Help

freedyo.com

Entrato di diritto nella rosa dei miei film preferiti di sempre, “The Help” (nei cinema italiani dal 20 gennaio) è riuscito ad essere fonte di emozioni e motivazione. Tratto dall’omonimo romanzo di Kathryn Stockett, vede, nella trasposizione cinematografica diretta da Tate Taylor, un cast mozzafiato impegnato a raccontarci la segregazione razziale degli anni ’60 in una storia ambientata a Jackson, Mississippi.

Nella colonna sonora di questo grandioso film troviamo capostipiti della musica quali Ray Charles, Frankie Valli e Johnny Cash e, last but not least, uno dei pilastri dell’R&B odierno: Mary J. Blige che, grazie ad una ballad intensa e la passione che da sempre la contraddistingue, ci accompagna mano nella mano tra desideri, priorità e quella solidarietà femminile che ogni tanto ci sfugge di mano e che andrebbe invece coltivata.

The Living Proof” parla del viaggio che ciascuno di noi si ritrova ad intraprendere, della volontà di prendere in mano la propria vita per tornare a respirare, sorridere e a condividere la propria storia con gli altri riscoprendo l’aiuto reciproco e il sostegno comune. 

“It’s gonna be a long long journey | It’s gonna be enough hill climb
It’s gonna be though | It’s gonna be some lonely nights | But I am ready to carry on
I am so glad the worst is over | I can start living now
I feel like I can do anything | And finally I am not afraid to breathe

Anything you said to me | And everything you do
You can’t deny the truth | Cause I am the living proof
So many thoughts fight | They just can’t make it through
But look at me | I am the living proof | Oh yes I am

Thinking about life been painful | Yes it was | Took a lot to learn how to smile
So now I am gonna talk to my people about the storm
Oh so glad the worst is over | I can start flying now
My best days are in front of me | I am almost there | Cause now I am free

Everything you say to me | And everything you do
You can’t deny the truth | Cause I am the living proof
So many those who fight | They just can’t make it through
But look at me | I am the living proof

I know where I am going | Cause I know where I have been
I am gonna feel starts that showing | I am gonna keep rolling | That’s the way that I will

Everything you say to me | And everything you do
You can’t deny the truth | Cause I am the living proof
So many those who fight | They just can’t make it through
But look at me | I am the living proof

Nothing about my life has been easy | But nothing is gonna keep me down
Cause I know a lot about today | And I know yesterday
So I am ready to carry on | Oh Lord.”

The beautiful thing about these women is that they were very smart. They chose to walk in love and forgiveness. To speak to so many women with this song means a lot to me. I wanted to be involved with this film, because I think we need to encourage each other more, we are here to tell a story.” (Mary J. Blige)
