“Give Me All Your Luvin’ ” is a somewhat-catchy tune that doesn’t embody any innovative musical characteristics whatsoever. If this were a Katy Perry song, nobody would think twice.
“Give Me All Your Luvin’ “
But that is not the standard to which we hold Madonna, the 4th-highest-grossing artist of all time, just below The Beatles, Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson. She is one of the greats, and it’s disappointing to see her breaking back into the music industry with such mediocrity.
Nearly every piece of the song fits into the latest music industry trends. The same guitar melody currently popularized by Flo Rida’s “Good Feeling,” the rap verse inserted near the bridge of the song — even more typically, it’s Nicki Minaj who’s rapping — and overdone lyrics like “Step into my world” and “Dance our lives away.”
Madonna is supposed to make trends, not follow them. The world’s most influential female pop superstar did get one line of the song right though, “Every record sounds the same.” It certainly does now Madonna.
