Lady Gaga Bumps Up 'Born This Way' Release Date, Reveals Single Artwork
AHHH! Amazing! Check out the JUST RELEASED artwork for Lady Gaga's new single, "Born This Way." I'm captivated. The single is set to premiere on February 11th at 9:00 AM EST. Lady Gaga posted the artwork via Twitter with the message: "Trois Jours," or THREE DAYS! Produced by Gaga, Fernando Garibay and DJ White Shadow, "Born This Way" will be released worldwide on February 13th, the same day Gaga is scheduled to perform the track at the 53rd Grammy Awards in LA. The song will be serviced to radio on February 15th.
"Born This Way" is the first single to be lifted off her album of the same name, due May 23rd on Interscope Records. As the follow up to Gaga's successful debut, The Fame (and subsequent Fame Monster EP) this talented artiste has a lot of hype to live up to. The Fame peaked at #2 on the Billboard 200 and went straight to the Top of the chart in 7 other countries, including the UK. Two #1 singles ("Just Dance," & "Poker Face"), four Top 5 singles ("LoveGame," "Bad Romance," "Telephone," & "Alejandro") and one Top Ten ("Paparazzi") - I think it's safe to say that Lady Gaga dominated the charts in both 2009 and 2010 with 2011 looking to be another big year for the 24-year old. Is Born This Way one of my most hotly anticipated albums of 2011? I think that's a fair assessment, despite the fact that it's only February. Tune in this Sunday to see Lady Gaga perform "Born This Way" on the Grammy's and grab yourself a copy if you like it. Be on the look out for another provocative Lady Gaga video, this time directed by Jonas Akerlund (Britney Spears, "Hold It Against Me"). So much good pop music to come this year!
