“STUPID LOVE” 2/28, midnight ET ?? #LG6

A post shared by Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) on



Gaga’s new record, Stupid Love, SCREAMS pop and I’m absolutely loving it! For the first time in her career, Gaga worked on the track with Max Martin, BloodPop and Tchami.



In an interview with Beats 1, Gaga explained:


“I’ve never worked with him, I’ve always sort of gone, I write my own music, I produce myself, I don’t need to work with Max, right? And I decided to stop being a**hole, meet him at least, you know? Basically, I sang over a track that BloodPop made, who were in the studio, we sent over what I sang to Max, Max picked some parts out, sent it back to me, and then I wrote lyrics and used some of the melody that he chose that he sent back to me and I kind of spliced it all together and then I went to his studio, and sat down at a piano and I played Stupid Love on a piano with chords. And I looked at him and I said, that’s what I’ve got for you, and to me, this song can only stand on it’s two feet, even with a great track, if you can play it on a piano and it still sounds like a hit. And he was-he was like, I love it, get in the booth. I warmed up my voice, got in the booth, I sang it, and what you’re hearing on “Stupid Love” is what we did that day.”



With a new single comes a new music video which, was shot entirely with an iPhone.  “This was very emotional for me making this album and I cried constantly and I was writing poetry constantly.  There were so many different iterations of these songs because we all wanted it to be perfect and literally nobody cared who put their fingerprints on it, as long as it was the dopest thing that we could give the world and that it was meaningful, authentic, and completely me,” Gaga revealed.



Stupid Love is Gaga’s first, solo single since releasing ‘The Cure’ in 2017 and ‘Shallow’ alongside Bradley Cooper from A Star Is Born.
