The Pop Superstar Lady Gaga’s newest album, Chromatica was released and the Little Monsters all over the world are freaking out and someone’s got to deliver the physical album and that someone is Gaga herself together with the wheel of an app truck.
“Delivering Chromatica myself to every retailer around the world,” she writes in the caption. “In Chromatica time and distance do not exist.” Lady Gaga posted.
The album has 16 tracks and Gaga collaborated with Ariana Grande, Blackpink and Elton John. The highly acclaimed album scored 81 on Metacritic and 9.3 by the users (the highest rating of an album by Lady Gaga so far). And currently, her album peaked at number one on itunes in UK and other countries.
Lady Gaga’s Chromatica does not try to convey something plain and monotonous taste, but after several of her music career of changing her music catalog and performing different stages, for instance, from the Super Bowl halftime show to the Academy Awards, the new album of Gaga is serving us her wide vocals and high choruses and bridges got us on hook particularly over this collection of house- and techno-tinged songs from highly –acclaimed producers like BloodPop, Burns and Axwell.
Lady Gaga also shared a video with Ariana Grande, as the “Chromatica Weather Girls”. This follows the release of their collaborative single “Rain on Me” May 22.
“I’d rather be dry, but at least I’m alive,” Lady Gaga sings on her new Ariana Grande duet, “Rain on Me.” According to Gaga ”It’s a timely sentiment: this year has forced many of us to recognize that, while we’d rather our circumstances be different, at least we’re breathing, and able to reflect upon that newfound sense of gratitude.” The music video portrays a lot of symbolism leaving the fans at awed with the hidden messages. Other than that, Ariana Grande got grooved with choreography making the Arianators (Ariana’s Fandom) shocked because it was the very first time the popstar got into choreography.
“Rain On Me” and the rest of Gaga’s new album Chromatica were wrapped up before the coronavirus pandemic brought the world at shock as the music project released and its lead single, “Stupid Love,” was released in late February, back before the words “social” and “distancing” had been implemented. Some might say that the timing of Chromatica still feels uncanny and unconventional, as if Gaga’s long-awaited return to the dance-pop aesthetic that made her music and stage name a decade ago only occurred when we most desperately needed that replenishment from lockdown at homes.
Before the highly anticipated release of her album “Stupid Love” and “Rain On Me” suggested, Chromatica is a homecoming for Gaga, following the pop country of 2016’s Joanne and moments of cinematic grandeur from the 2018 soundtrack to A Star Is Born. When Gaga became a superstar at the opening of the 2010s, she did so by challenging the conventions of mainstream presentation, crashing highbrow influences into gripping electro-pop hooks.
According to critics “Lady Gaga’s project it’s also worth noting that, while Chromatica is a universal album, it’s not an impersonal one. Instead of brimming with cookie-cutter anthems full of love, pain or resilience, Gaga packs nearly every song with subtle shades of her vulnerabilities: “Fun Tonight” reflects a mounting disconnection between her professional power and personal sadness, while late highlight “1000 Doves” lets Gaga’s mighty voice deliver a plea for salvation that spills into a shimmering workout. A song like “911” reads like a sleek robo-funk groove, but a closer look reveals an ode to Gaga’s unending struggle for control over her controlled substances. Anyone who dismisses Chromatica as pure dance-floor fluff isn’t paying attention to the flawed, fragile pieces of herself that Gaga tucks into nearly every corner, and uses to add volume to the widescreen moments.”
And when those moments do arrive, Gaga makes certain that they land, and that you’ll need to return to them. The drums kicking in midway through the chorus to “Enigma,” Gaga grabbing the baton from K-pop group BLACKPINK on “Sour Candy,” the opening notes to the post-rave triumph “Alice” — they’re all sparks of energy, primed to get you out of a funk or soundtrack a bedroom dance party whenever you’re longing for a gathering this summer.
Bottomline, the music production includes instrumental interludes, literary allusions and daring collaborations, but Chromatica’s best moments sound the most effortless, with Gaga’s talent as a songwriter and vocalist presented in the most magnificent manner. And true enough, Gaga has once again prove to us how versatile she is.
