Single review: Madonna - Jump


Release date

6 November

The introduction

When Madonna isn't making the news headlines by adopting children from Africa she is also known for making great pop songs.

Jump is the fourth single to be taken from her chart-topping album, Confessions On A Dancefloor.

The sound

It is another piece of electronic pop which plods along at a steady pace without actually going anywhere.

The lyrics

The queen of pop is singing about being brave and going for your dreams.

"There's only so much you can learn in one place," breathes Madonna as the song begins.
Pop star Madonna

Madonna's first hit was in 1984 - Holiday made number 6 in the charts
Hung Up was Madonna's 13th UK number one hit
Evita was one of Madonna's biggest films - it was all singing and no talking!

"The more that I wait, the more time that I waste."

Will you still be humming it next week?

It's not as good other singles, Hung Up and Sorry, but Madonna hasn't lost her magic touch when it comes to making a fab song.

Will it make the charts?

Easily. Every Madonna song from the last 22 years has made the Top 20 and Jump will leap up the charts like all her other hits.

NR rating:

Newsround rating: four out of five
