Lady Gaga - A-YO lyrics
While "A-YO" is a country-flavored banger, Gaga says she doesn't consider herself a country musician. "I have a general deep respect for all country musicians, but I myself am not a country musician," Gaga told Rolling Stone of her influences on the song. "I'm just a musician period. I love all different kinds of music and this is just what I wrote."
