“Girl gone wild” was the second single released for Madonna’s latest studio album “MDNA”. It’s Madonna’s 76th worldwide single release, and so far holds the distinction for being her least successful second single to date. Following the lukewarm success of Give me all your luvin’, Girl gone wild has experienced a  much worst outing, becoming her first second single release to miss the Billboard Hot 100, and internationally it hasn’t lived up to expectations either. This is probably due to the fact that it wasn’t the best choice for a single, but I won’t start here a list of reasons for its underperformance, up to this point it’s better to highlight the positive side and just enjoy the music.

Girl gone wild did found sucess on the dance charts, becoming her 42nd hit to reign on the Hot Dance/Club Play Chart, extending her lead as the most successful artist on this chart. The music video started a small controversy regarding censorship on youtube, the video was deemed too explicit for minors and youtube decided to force viewers to sign in, in order to exclude minors from viewing the video. The video is now shown for all audiences but the explicit scenes were cut out. This controversy didn’t do much to generate interest on the song, as Madonna had done sucessfully in the past with certain videos.
