just gave us another taste of her upcoming album Joanne
with her new single "A-YO" and although it's not what we were expecting... It's pretty damn good.
Starting off with a fun "here we go" screamed by Gaga, the song breaks into a semi-electronic, semi-country beat. Some of her words curl into a subtle southern accent. "A-YO" is the main lyric. She sings about smoking a lot of cigarettes. Sure, it could ring as a cheesy early Miley rip off at first, but it's bound to grow on you after a few more rounds. We're wondering: What sparked this drastic change in genre? Is Gaga taking a cue from Beyonce after hearing Lemonade
's "Daddy Lessons"? We're not sure, but what we do
know is that no one wants to wear meat dresses forever. Gaga is thirty years old, guys. If she kept putting out "weird" albums, the costumes would start to get boring - we don't want to see any artist make the same thing over and over again. We're glad to see her growing because let's be real, she's got a voice that deserves to be used for much more than just plastic synth pop. Plus, she might create a lot more country fans amongst her young fan base... We're excited to hear the rest.
