Indie Spotlight Lolla Rewind: Lady Gaga

Posted in News on July 30, 2020

There could be 100 people in the room, but there is only one Lady Gaga. Since her debut on the BMI stage at Lollapalooza in 2007, Gaga has become a “record-setting megastar,” according to Billboard magazine. Her first album, The Fame, catapulted her to superstardom with the Billboard Hot 100 chart toppers, “Just Dance” and “Poker Face,” while her follow-up album, The Fame Monster, solidified her place as a pop powerhouse. Over the years, Gaga has continued to expand her empire while staying true to the girl from New York City who dreamed of selling out Madison Square Garden: herself. The year 2016 saw the release of her deeply personal LP, Joanne, and that same year she became the first female artist to receive the prestigious RIAA Digital Diamond Award for “Bad Romance.” Now with 11 GRAMMYs, two Golden Globes, an Oscar, a headlining slot at the 2017 Super Bowl halftime show, a Las Vegas residency, and a well-received turn in the hit film, A Star is Born, Gaga kicked off 2020 with the announcement of her sixth solo studio album, Chromatica. Even as her future classic with Bradley Cooper, “Shallow,” continues gaining streams every day, Gaga changed gears, using her February single “Stupid Love” to signal her return to the dance-pop sound that first made us fall in love with her. Chromatica became her sixth consecutive #1 on the Billboard 200, and the set’s second single, “Rain on Me” with Ariana Grande, peaked atop the Hot 100. Gaga received nine nominations at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards (winners will be announced on August 30), and her highly anticipated Chromatica Ball stadium tour will launch next year.
