Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way’ premieres on radio, iTunes
HollywoodNews.com: It feels like Christmas morning today with the release of Lady Gaga’s latest single “Born This Way,” the first track to premiere off her upcoming record and the freshest musical material from the pop singer-songwriter since 2010’s The Fame Monster EP.
The track debuted at 6 a.m. EST.
Elton John, who could only be considered a precursor to Gaga, famously stated in a recent interview with Rolling Stone that born this way was “an anthem” and proclaimed it, “the new ‘I Will Survive.'” It would take a lot, however, to surpass Gloria Gaynor’s soulful disco hit that became the theme song for both female empowerment and the gay community in the late ’70s. “Born This Way” isn’t as elegant or emotionally-charged as Gaynor’s track, but it will certainly be a standout at dance clubs across America.
Gaga doesn’t hold back on getting her message across on the pulsating electro-pop single, cheekily opening with, “I don’t care if you love him or capital H.I.M.,” while the second verse repeats what’s sure to be a newfound mantra, “Don’t be a drag, just be a queen.” Despite the song’s limited creative scope — the beat vaguely sounds like a sped-up version of Madonna’s “Express Yourself” — Gaga proves on “Born This Way” that, as an artist making a statement, she is music’s leading, most fearless risk taker.
Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” is now available for download at iTunes for $1.29.
