Even the Material Girl needs to use music as an escape now and then. Madonna’s newly released video for MDNA’s frolicsome, Martin Solveig-produced “Turn Up the Radio” is a relatively literal take on the song’s lyrics about how, when this old world starts a-gettin’ you down, you can, well, turn up the radio. But a fantastical twist makes the clip fairly entertaining to watch, as Madonna cruises across the Italian countryside in a Cadillac convertible, getting away from the “maddening crowd” and, of course, throwing a dance party. The pop queen’s current squeeze, Brahim Zaibat, even pops in for a cameo. Hey, music makes the people get together.
