Let’s get this out of the way right off the bat: Madonna‘s video for third MDNA single “Turn Up The Radio” is the most fun visual she’s offered up in years. Sure, “Give Me All Your Luvin’” was campy in the best way possible, but the Super Bowl tie-in lent an air of over-marketed cheesiness to the busy clip.

Instead, it’s the Tom Munro-directed “Turn Up The Radio” that has us waving our pom-poms high. We like to imagine that the vid simply shows a normal day-in-the-life of pop’s longest-reigning queen: turning a four-wheeled paparazzi escape mission into a jaunt through Italy wherein the Material Girl proceeds to pick up the best looking men on the roadside. Watch above.

Madonna The Cougar’s most handsome young prey in this saucy adventure is her suave chauffeur, who, by the end of the quest, winds up jumping out of the party car in the Tuscan countryside with his pants falling down around his ankles. See that, Britney, Bey, Xtina, Katy, Rihanna, etc. — aging divas simply have more fun.

In the end, we’re led to believe that Madge’s manhunt was all a dream. Or was it? Never underestimate the imagination of a girl gone wild in the midst of hot young paesanos.

All in all, a fantastic video for one of the more mediocre tracks off Madonna’s MDNA album. Agree? Disagree? Let us know your thoughts on Madonna’s new video below, or by hitting us up on Facebook and Twitter!

    Boring song. Wow. Video was boring too. Just driving around looking good. Did she steal the men in “Mr. Perfect” from Helena Paparizou or something?

  2. Weird since most of my friends mention this song to be there favorite out of the album even the famous Perez hilton, but I like Gang Bang and Love Spent myself.

  3. She stole the guy from Britney’s IWannaGo video – Adrien Galo (her driver). (she likes to be near to Brit-Brit in any way).
    Not bad – and there’s nothing to add.
    I wanna see video for “Masterpiece” Please, Madonna!!!

    The video has a much more genuine and relaxed feel than most of her productions, and it really brings the song to life.

    WoW what a genius this queen is, and this track is a real stretch in songwriting-I’ve never heard a dj song before or sung by such a raving tragically hip and cool looking “lady”, Madonna’s true blue talent in crafting a “dj-radio-dance-tune” is a test of not just intellect but her unnerving foray into the arts, culture and so many other trendy things her fans like and are hungry for. And since her fans are often times over 30, its enlightenig to know they too have evolved with her. “Up Your Radio” it seems is almost a lesson on how to actually turn up a radio dial, possibly Madonna is really singing to handicapped people that she is praying for, needing motivation to understand what volume their audio device should be at. Wake up dead and disabled people Madonna is here again with another smashing original creative concept and new material “girls”!
