Lady Gaga is set to release a new pop single titled ‘Perfect Illusion’ after previous efforts ‘Applause’…but has the clock already run out?
It has been four years since Lady Gaga released a pop album and that was the biggest embarrassment of Lady Gaga’s career. ArtPop did not generate any decent singles and the entire album was plagued with scandal after scandal. I believe that the clock has already stopped and no one really cares about ‘Perfect Illusion’ minus a lot of diehard fans.
Lady Gaga is famous for copying the career of Madonna, while acting like a totally unique and innovative artist. There is nothing original about copying someone. Rewording Madonna songs to create your own isn’t cool. Think ‘Born This Way’ and ‘Express Yourself’.
During the MDNA Tour…Madonna mixed both songs together to prove Lady Gaga had copied ‘Express Yourself’ with ‘Born This Way’.
It will be interesting to see if ‘Perfect Illusion’ is original or just another copy and paste. ‘Perfect Illusion’ is due out on September 9th on iTunes and is already one of the top 10 trends on Twitter.
Is Lady Gaga able to make the new pop single in 2016 a top 10 hit? Remember Britney Spears is already struggling with her new album ‘Glory’.
The first week sales for ‘Perfect Illusion’ will be the test for the ages.
