No, but since the album doesnt have potential lead singles, i think it was the best option, The Cure as a lead single would be 1000 better and still come short

I've changed my mind too many times

But i think the debut of the album should have been done with Diamond Heart

It had the most potential for an easy going, fast paced movie

I think also Ayo, Ayo the lead single sent for radio but a videoclip compassing both songs.

Omg i haven't listened to these songs in so long. Ayo is so good, compared to how good it is, it's probably the most underrated song from her catalogue. Since BTW the songs are badly mixed, overproduced and many dont quite dont go where they need to go. Ayo is perfect, every single sound

I've grown more fond of Perfect Illusion over the past several months/almost a year.  However, I still don't think it worked as a lead single for the album.

Diamond Heart would have been my pick for first single, as it represents the album well AND it's a freaking bop. I also think that A-Yo, Joanne, and Million Reasons would have worked really well for the lead single as well ... But Diamond Heart is my first choice.  It really is an "anthem" type of song, and it would have stood out compared to other pop songs that have been out recently.

Diamond Heart would be an iconic first single. Still don't know how her label choose Perfect Illusion instead, even if its a great song its not first single material

DIC.  People kind of wanted that from Gaga.  It's pretty risky but so was songs like Bad Romance.  A lot of people love Alejandro and it kinda has that vibe to it.

If you would leave the fan base just because Gaga released a explicit single I don't know why are you here tbh. Oh and lets not forget that DWUW is a explicit song.

But yes, of course she would release a clean version for the single. That's obvious.

Now: Diamond Heart is one of Gaga's best songs and you will deal. One of the best productions on the album and awesome lyrics.

absolutely NOT..... after a very positive few years an public interest and respect for Gaga , the song did nothing for her career, and it failed as a single and it prevented the album for doing even better than it did. A stronger lead would have made Joanne more successful.

Obviously not commercially but I think it was the best artistically.

John Wayne would've been an amazing lead single, if MR was the lead single I can only IMAGINE the meltdowns

Gaga: Releases Perfect Illusion,  promotes A-Yo instead.  It would have been great as a lead,  I think it's what Gaga would have preferred.
