What It Feels Like for a Girl

"What It Feels Like for a Girl" je treći i posljednji singl američke pjevačice Madonne s njezinog osmog studijskog albuma Music. Singl je izdan 17. travnja 2001. pod Maverick Recordsom. Izdan je i kao DVD i VHS izdanje s glazbenim videom koji je izazvao buru reakcija. Inače, videospot je režirao Madonnin tadašnji suprug Guy Ritchie, a emitiranje mu je dopušteno tek nakon 21h zbog scena nasilja. Pjesma je uključena na kompilaciju najvećih hitova GHV2 (2001.).

O pjesmiUredi

Tekst za pjesmu napisali su Madonna i Guy Sigsworth, a kao producent se osim njih dvoje pojavljuje i Mark "Spike" Stent. Pjesma sadrži početni dio s uvodom koji govori glumica Charlotte Gainsbourg, a tekst je iz filma koji je snimljen po knjizi Iana McEwana The Cement Garden.

Španjolska verzija pjesme snimljena je posebno za B-stranu singla. "Lo Que Siente la Mujer" je pušten kao promotivni singl u Europi. Kasnije se pjesma našla na meksičkoj verziji albuma, zajedno s remiksom istoimene pjesme koji je zamijenio "American Pie". Madonna je pjesmu izvela na Drowned World Tour 2001.

Maxi singl sadrži remikse sastava Above & Beyond te Paula Oakenfolda koji su bili vrlo popularni u klubovima.

Glazbeni videoUredi

 
Zbog prevelikog nasilja, spot se ne emitira na TV postajama

Pjesma je većinu pažnje privukla zahvaljujući videospotu, zabranjenom na mnogim TV kućama. Režirao ga je Madonnin tadašnji suprug Guy Ritchie u veljači 2001. U spotu se pojavljuje remiks sastava Above & Beyond, a ne izvorna inačica.

Kritike su stizale o prevelikom nasilju koji se nalazi u spotu. Madonna je branila svoje djelo time što je govorila da njene muške kolege rade iste (ako ne i gore) spotove i za njih nema zamjerke. MTV i VH 1 emitiraju video u kasnim satima i to vrlo rijetko.

Video je izdan i kao DVD singl.
