LG6 - Lemonade or Purpose?

So when LG6 comes out, would you prefer it to be an album in the vein of:

 

Justin Bieber's 'Purpose' (ie. hit singles, very poppy, modern, relevant, etc)

OR

 

Beyoncé's 'Lemonade' (ie. lacking any 'hits', but strong critical acclaim and a deep, personal album)

My personal preference would be the latter - I feel like Gaga's had so many hits that she doesn't need to prove that side of her anymore. Sure, I think she was trying to get strong critical acclaim with Joanne, but I think the issue with critics was she was 'trying too hard' to be a country/songwriter artist. If she went away on a retreat with some writers and musicians, and didn't have a goal to be 'authentic', then I think she could make something really special. And a critically-acclaimed album (bar TFM) is the one thing missing from her repertoire.

But there's many on the forum who want a return to ReDone days, so just wanted to see what people would prefer from LG6?

Actually, she needs to prove that she isn't something that expired on the radio 10 years into her career.

I mean, the way you describe "Lemonade" sounds a lot like "Joanne," so I'm gonna say I'd prefer the former next time

But I do think Gaga is capable of making a personal album with real hits. I don't think she really endeavored to do that with "Joanne." She knows how to be popular and mainstream (see The Cure for a recent example), and every album she's put out has had some personal stuff.

But why? If she's making critically acclaimed music anyway (in the case of a Lemonade-esque album)?

Purpose easily. I want to hear my queen on the radio, on music channels and in clubs.
