Stop what you’re doing because Lady Gaga just announced some major news!
On Tuesday (Feb. 25), the pop star revealed that she will be releasing a new song at the end of the week.
Titled “Stupid Love,” the track is her first solo song in years (we’re not counting “A Star is Born” because that was Allie, not Gaga). Taking to social media, the songstress wrote, “‘Stupid Love.’ The new single by Lady Gaga. Out Friday at midnight ET. #LG6.”
Taking a cue from the 90s, the billboard snapshot featured in her post includes bright pink lips (pretty sure it’s the same shade as HAUS Laboratories’ REBEL lipstick), the word “STUPID” printed in white and pink bubble letters while “LOVE” is printed in black over a water-looking background. Next to it is a montage of Gaga, looking like she could be a character in Aqua’s music video for “Barbie Girl.” (Don’t believe us? Here’s a refresher course.)
If the name of the track sounds familiar, that’s because the title has been floating around for some time. Things took a turn for the juicy last month when the song reportedly leaked. Little Monsters were quick to praise the new song saying it was a callback to The Fame and Born this Way.
Gaga tried to quell the pandemonium by tweeting, “Can ya’ll stop.”
Information about this album has been scarce at best. From its projected release time frame and collaborators list to its title, which is now believed to be Chromatica, Gaga has been keeping mum about everything.
For all we know, the full album can drop on Friday, and none of us would have been the wiser. But let’s be honest, wouldn’t that be a Gaga thing to do?
Lady Gaga’s last studio album was 2016’s Joanne. If we’re taking the “A Star is Born” soundtrack into consideration, then the 2018 release was Gaga’s last set of new tunes.
“Stupid Love” is the first single off the singer’s long-awaited sixth studio album.
