Cha Cha Cha: Madonna Drops Expensive Looking Six Minute Four Second Video for “Medellin”


Hard to say what the heck is going in Madonna’s new video for “Medellin.” It’s six minutes, forty seconds long and looks very expensive. It’s a slow, slow, song– I don’t know what dance clubs will do with it, except maybe speed it up. To me, this is like “Havana” as a senior social. The imagery is brilliantly filmed, but it also looks like stuff we’ve seen before. I don’t know why but the words Gogo Bordello came to mind. On You Tube one of the commenters said Maluma, her latest Spanish boy toy, has the face a guy who bullied you in school. Interesting.

Anyway, here’s “Medellin,” which has nothing to do with Medellin. I thought Madonna had spent all this time in Portugal. It would have been more interesting to see a Portugese-influenced song.

Madonna fans: Don’t you like what’s below better?
