Born This Way,
Lady Gaga's new song on iTunes
is here. But with Justin Bieber's Never Say Never
film out, and Just Go with It
heading north, are the reviews enough to buoy its success?
After months of anticipation worldwide, Lady Gaga finally gave her legion of fans a glimpse into her artistry, the making of a legacy, and a new projected hit single.
At 6 a.m. this morning, the single was released
to fans on iTunes
via the Internet. Then, radio
stations began to give the eccentric entertainer a "thundersnow
" of radio showers (remember the new term from the recent blizzards?).
But what did fans have to say about Born This Way,
Lady Gaga's new song? As one can imagine, the only time the world got an opportunity to sample the new song was five months ago when she sang a snippet at an awards show. Even then, there was something powerful in the making.
Albeit the throw-back to a Madonnish-type style with the melody, Born This Way,
Lady Gaga's new song is a hit. It's a testament to her belief that people should love the skin
To bolster that claim, take this hook for instance: "Don't be a drag, just be a queen"
. That was brilliant, or one helluva marketingstrategy
In that hook alone, she gave props to a large Little Monster
population of fans who live "alternative lifestyles". To her, they need respect even if they were born that way
. It's genius.
Overall, Born This Way,
Lady Gaga's new song gives listeners a reason to shake their money-maker, as it's clean
, hypnotic, preppy, full of glee, and sends a message of inclusion without color, gender, and cultural boundaries.
Although its vintage
sound is a “been there, done that” re-boot, it’s a masterful message coming from a masterful artist and reigns supreme.
Have you heard it yet? What are your early thoughts about Born This Way,
Lady Gaga's new song? One has to admit; the timing, days ahead of the Grammy’s is another bit of genius.
