While little else is known at present about the track, we can say with much certainty that we’re uber amped!
Produced by Rodney ‘Darkchild’ Jerkins, the original ‘Telephone’ featured on GaGa’s sophomore set ‘The Fame Monster’ and was a global smash, topping the Singles tally in the UK, Ireland, Holland, and Norway, while peaking at #3 on the US’ Billboard Hot 100. To-date ‘Telephone’ has sold a whopping 7.4 million copies worldwide.
Similarly, the cut’s accompanying video (which clocked it at nearly 10 minutes) was very much a Pop event and has to-date been watched over 150 million times on Youtube.
With both ladies on the cusp of releasing their new projects, a collaboration of this magnitude will only serve to enhance the already fever-pitch buzz. Here’s hoping the song itself delivers and is more ‘Telephone’ than ‘Videophone’.
