LADY GAGA's ‘Chromatica’ Is A Bold Declaration Of Dance-Pop Holiness
Lady Gaga has been making quirky dance floor music since her 2008 debut album The Fame, but with her sixth and latest album Chromatica, the pop diva radiates a deeper sense of maturity and confidence that livens every Little Monster up.
Ahead of its official release, Gaga sampled three tracks out of the 16 total—the lead single "Stupid Love", the Ariana Grande-assisted "Rain On Me", and the BLACKPINK collaboration "Sour Candy". But it was on the fresh releases that the mega popstar completely bared her soul.
In an earlier interview, the 34-year-old pop icon said, "I think that the beginning of the album really symbolizes, for me, what I would call the beginning of my journey to healing, and what I would hope would be an inspiration for people that are in need of healing through happiness, through dance."
She added, "If you’re listening to this album and you’re suffering in any type of way, just know that that suffering within itself is a sign of your humanity and you are not broken. You are connected to the whole world and we are one giant body. We are one full entity. And the whole you is having a whole human experience and there might be parts of your life that feel completely shallow or robotic or ancillary and unimportant, and that’s okay, but that suffering is a sign that you’re real and it’s a way to ground yourself."
