I thought she did that with Chromatica? All the songs are accessible for radio, short enough to cater for Spotify ADHD...It was hardly as raw and risky as Joanne!

Exactly. Chromatica, as brilliant as it is, was quite literally the opposite of risk-taking. Sometimes it feels like some people on here are treating her like a struggling indie act - she's a popular million-record selling artist, people :triggered:

I mean, as much as I love this record, let's not act like Chromatica was super experimental and boundary-pushing, it was pretty accessible and did spawn a #1 single. Our girl wanted a smash record and

Was spiderman GP-bait?

I don't know how different this "GP bait"  would be from other albums.?. Jewels and drugs and Cake like Lady Gaga are her worst songs, imo bottom of the barrel.

I would also like her to stay away from Lil Nas and his satan [email protected] image, no matter how much the ggd fanbase may like him.

Didn’t Gaga say Chromatica was made to be accesible and enjoyable by the GP? her most commercial solo album since TF.

Chromatica was her GP-friendly album 

You could argue ASIB was too 

 

I hope for her next album she releases a truly experimental, diverse album

What do you think Chromatica was? :huntyga:

Ariana, Blackpink and Elton are there for a reason

Chromatica was 100% that album, let's be real.

I absolutely love it, but it was certainly more GP-friendly than I think a lot of us thought it would be. 

:laughga: In what way? the album is literally named Chromatica. That's not a GP-friendly name. 

Sonically it's a dance album, mixed in with out-of-this-world vocals and backing tracks. Not to mention 911 and Alice having chopped vocals, something you rarely see on the radio. Even ROM, the most successful song from the album, is a far stretch from what today would be labeled "GP-friendly". 

It's not a downright experimental album, but that doesn't mean it's gp bait :fail: 

Purr more, hiss less.

Nowadays, if you don't have hundred millions of followers on TikTok and 2 viral moments a minute, you're not GP-friendly anymore apparently :yennefer:

Sorry but ROM is literally what the gays wanted. :huntyga:

It couldn't have been more commercial

Didn’t all the producers say how much the songs changed and how they would do lots of the work and then bring it back to her. In other words, I think it’s likely she could do exactly what op is suggesting. Will she do it? Will she release Haus Labs No Name generic eyeliner to coincide? Time will tell

You mean the album with the Max Martin produced lead single, Ariana Grande feature, and short streamable length songs, wasn’t GP bait?

Gaga hasn’t done anything to unsettle the GP since ARTPOP’s perceived failure. 

Cheek To Cheek, a collection of Starbucks standards with Tony, was used to prove she was a vocalist. With Joanne she focused on a genre which is universally respected to solidify herself as a serious musician. With A Star Is Born, and the era of beautiful but safe red carpet moments, she proved to the GP she is a legitimate actress.

She’s branching out and exploring the extents of her talents, but all in a way the is very GP friendly. 

Hopefully she starts rocking the boat again soon.

And not that it's a bad thing tbh, but people aren't ready for those conversations in the early days of an album release :toofunny: Seems like some are still not ready now.

All the songs on the album are pretty digestible. The only exceptions being maybe 911 and Alice (and maaaybe Babylon). The name of the album means nothing. I mean, "Born This Way" is pretty "GP-friendly" but more than half of that album is not.

I disagree with you on ROM. It's one of the most GP-friendly songs on the album. It's no wonder why people flocked to that song (besides the fact that Ari and Gaga were on the track together). I mean, Fun Tonight, Free Woman, Stupid Love, 1000 Doves, Plastic Doll, SFA, etc. all sound pretty much fit that sound.

But hey, just because something is "GP-friendly" doesn't mean that it's bad. The album is in my top 3 for Gaga.
