She’s baaaack! Lady Gaga sent fans into a frenzy on Sept. 8 when she FINALLY dropped her new song ‘Perfect Illusion’ after a year-long wait. Thank goodness, it’s even better than we hoped! Listen to the amazing new banger, right here.
It’s finally here! We’ve only gotten one new song from Lady Gaga since her 2013 album ARTPOP, so there was a lot of pressure for her new single “Perfect Illusion” to be… well… perfect. When we finally got to hear it on Sept. 8, it put all of our fears to rest because this is the best song Gaga has come out with in years! Obsessed already!
We knew the song would be our new favorite jam when she released a fun, flashy teaser on Twitter earlier in the day on Sept. 9. It showed Gaga flipping her striking blonde hair around while a shrill guitar feedback sound boomed out of our headphones. We knew it would be awesome, but we didn’t know HOW awesome. As a matter of fact, we can’t help but wonder if it’s about her split with Taylor Kinney, with lyrics like “it wasn’t love, it was a perfect illusion.” Woah!
There were so many rumors surrounding Lady Gaga leading up to this year’s MTV Video Music Awards, especially after a production note leaked claiming that she would debuting a new song called “Chaos Angel.” That turned out to be a fake, and shattered out hearts into a million pieces. Her fans have been patiently waiting as she spent a year touring and recording classic songs with Tony Bennett, 90, then exploring acting with her award-winning stint on American Horror Story. But now, it was finally time for some fresh Gaga MUSIC! We couldn’t be happier that she finally delivered and that it smashed through all of our high expectations.
