Lady Gaga Streams “Applause”


Move over, Katy Perry. Mother Monster is back in action and aiming for that number one spot with the early release of her new single, “Applause.”

Debuting online Monday afternoon following a weekend littered with high and low quality leaks, Lady Gaga has made “Applause” available for streaming ahead of its scheduled release.

Taking to Twitter earlier today, Gaga sounded off against the piracy she has been battling with a series of caps-locked tweet. She wrote, “DUE TO HACKERS AN ABUNDANCE OF LOW/HIGH QUALITY LEAKS…WE ISSUE THIS POP MUSIC EMERGENCY…MONSTERS SPREAD THE WORD. POP MUSIC EMERGENCY #0DAYSTillAPPLAUSE MY NEW SINGLE COMES OUT TODAY. 911 SPREAD THIS MESSAGE.”

“Applause” is the second pop song to come under attack from music pirates in less than a week. Katy Perry had her new single “Roar” hit the net Saturday, a full 72 hours ahead of its planned debut.

We are planning to review Mother Monster’s latest this evening, but for now we’re going to kick back and leave it on repeat for awhile. Comment below and let us know your thoughts on Gaga’s latest.

ARTPOP, the new album from Lady Gaga, arrives in stores later this year.

    So far, pretty mediocre. Better than “Born This Way,” but still not as good as I hoped.

    I feel the same way. I expected something that would put her back in the spotlight in a good way. I guess, the bitch is back but I am a little lethargic for the song. BTW, I meant bitch in the highest regard LOL.

    What a chorus! It’s like a return to her glory days. Unfortunately, the rest gives me a headache. Katy Perry annoys me, but I love Roar :(.
