Must See: Lady GaGa Details ‘Applause’ Promo Plan / Eyes Major Debut Figures

Published: Wednesday 31st Jul 2013 by David

Lady GaGa is well and truly back.

The above…being in every sense of the word, and confirmed via a Twitter Q&A session that took place on the social media outlet minutes ago.

Details below…


 Announcing the above to the world today, the star has-without saying it- revealed her strategy to take ‘Applause‘ straight to #1 in its debut week.

For, with video streaming figures now counting towards Billboard Hot 100 positions, the single will benefit not only from its traditional sales but the million of views the video will generate once its uploaded.

While it’ll take more time to see it win overseas, her decision to launch the single and video on the same day gives its US wings no choice but to soar…perhaps, witnessing the industry’s new streaming rules  have worked to aid the likes of Ciara, Rihanna and their more recent releases.

    From her Facebook page:

    Lyrics of APPLAUSE (part)

    “give me that thing that I love
    put your hands up make ’em touch

  3. Twista July 31, 2013

    I wasn’t in love with the “Born This Way” album, but I did appreciate her “Fame” and “Fame Monster” tracks and salute her for her incredible hustle. Inspiration to young people everywhere, for sure. Gaga has a focus, a mission and is thoroughly dedicated to doing the best job possible.

  4. JJFan1814 July 31, 2013

    19 f****** days!!! I really am stoked about this!!!! August (The Weeknd), September (Drake), October (Celine Dion, Katy Perry), November (Gaga,, Hopefully RIH!!!)

    And Ellie Goulding’s re-release will fall somewhere in between there…

    All this music mane!!!! My coins are ready!

    Support the artists! F*** piracy.

      R&B>> Generic trash! FINALLY! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

      • rita ora album is not even paltinum in the uk July 31, 2013

        Ciara has not outsold any rihanna single. Right now did not even have a vdeo, therefore it is not a real single.

    • Rita Slays July 31, 2013

      Yes b****, you betta stay up to date on all things Rita!

      • rita ora album is not even paltinum in the uk July 31, 2013

        Rita is not even platinum in the UK. HER ALBUM olny sold 245. PLAT in the UK is 300k. HA HA HA

      • Rita Slays July 31, 2013

        ORA is platinum and its sales have exceeded 250k in the U.K alone. Seethe ugly

      • rita ora album is not even paltinum in the uk July 31, 2013

        Nope. I read on wiki that she sold 245k. You need 300k to be platinum in the UK. Rih last album has sold over 600k in the UK , THAT IS Double platinum.

        Emeli Sande came out the same time at Rita whora and she sold 1. 9 MILLION ALBUMS IN THE UK. SEETHE UGLY.

        RITA HAS NOT SOLD A MILLION ALBUMS YET. Even Ciara has sold a million albums in her life. When will rita? People are getting sick of her now. Very over exposed, without the hits to back it up. At least my fave SELLS records.

      • rita ora album is not even paltinum in the uk July 31, 2013

        Most of Rita sales came from TV commercials and her heavy discount. Her Lp was selling for 4. 99 at one point. They have made no profit on this h*** album. Her biggest ‘ hit ‘ was that DJ fresh song. She has never had a song be able to follow that up.

      • FAF July 31, 2013

        It dont matter R**** only sold 600k after 7 yrs on MOTS. Rita will do more. Watch. U stay updated on everyone else but R****! LMAO we know they’re more talented 😆 😆 😆

      • rita ora album is not even paltinum in the uk July 31, 2013

        WHAT? Rita cannot touch Rihanna. Even MOTS SOLD 1.5 MILL . ORA has sold 245k in total global sales. She will be dropped this time next year. She would of been dropped earlier, but everyone knows she is f****** for stay alive the game. Rih does not need to f*** for tracks

      • rita ora album is not even paltinum in the uk July 31, 2013

        Nope. MOTS was gold in the UK. This was when she was only 17 and with no promotion, hype or any form that rita.

        RITA HAS PEOPLE TRYING TO BUY a career for her and she still IS NOT HAPPENING. If beyonce and her dollars cannot make you happen…… are never gonna happen. Rih made it on her own name. In 2005, did u see beyonce go out of her way to BUY RIH a career? Now rih is bigger than her.

      • rita ora album is not even paltinum in the uk July 31, 2013

        I am up to date on Rih. She just won over 3 million GBP and beat topshop in her legal war.

        Diamonds is the 27th most viewed video in Youtibe in history

        Diamonds is the biggest video of her career

        She gets played hardcore on TOP 40 Radio here in LA

        Her LP has sold 3.2 with just 2 official singles.

        This is better than beyonce last album ; rita whora and ciara. You wait to Rih makes the 3rd video for her next single. LOL. Her new TV show, with Pharell is coming in fall. She has a new movie coming next year….where is beyonce new movie? Her clothing line has sold out; her fragrance has sold out; her make up line has sold out. AT 25 she is rocking.

        Your faves wish. HER EURO AND USA DATES ARE SELL OUT, her tour contines in 2 months and more dates are being added-

        Rita whora does not even have a date linedd up for a single.

      • rita ora album is not even paltinum in the uk July 31, 2013


        Rita will sell less. Usually when an act does not sell alot of their debut, it is cos they were unknown or had little PROMO from the label. This was Rih at 17. People did not know much about her 2005. With Rita, in 2012, her and her name dropping self was everywhere, then u have the Rob airing her h** ass out and her been seen out several men, as well as that Model wifey BFF …..We, the GP know TO MUCH about her, and from what I read on other blogs, people are just sick and tired of her. Exposure has killed her that is why she cannot drop a single.

        Go to the daily mail and read what they are saying, ” she is not going to happen, her 15 mins are up ” etc-. Jessie J comeback has not gone great in the UK. Being on the UK voice turned the UK GP off her. Rita is in a worse boat. All the copying rih on instagram ( she still does it, even yesterday ) Calvin harris fake PR relationship, the endless Photoshoots which have no value is just becoming off putting.

        Even if you look at her singles

        Hot right now hit

        RIP hit

        How we do decent hit

        Shina ya light – flop

        Radioactive – mega flop

        Duet with K koke and Snoop killer flop

        Her record sales are decreasing-. Unlike Rih, she is getting smaller and smaller. This is why she is now doing photoshoots and other things.

  10. Cream July 31, 2013

    Can’t wait to f*** with this song playing while I’m sucking from the back

  11. Pour It Up July 31, 2013


  12. FAF July 31, 2013

    Congrats gaga! *applause* to all women who write their own music 😆 😆 😆 😆

  13. Dev July 31, 2013

    Streaming views are ridiculous considering that artists only recently were stripped of viewing figures due to fraudulently obtaining numbers. Plus sometimes you go on a website and the video starts automatically without you knowing, also most urban/r&b acts are not getting second video privileges so they should start adding tv show appearance ratings and concert clips on YouTube rating to the mix as well. She will chart high because her creatures will watch this for 24hr solid the moment it comes out. Billboard and the Grammys are fools for the new conditions they have put on the music industry and its ruining the craft when it was about singing. I’m vexed about this and the industry (especially in America)

    • twat July 31, 2013

      come lick my booty, it’ll calm u down

  14. Queen Brit Brit July 31, 2013

    And Flopsters say Katy is thirsty for hits LOLOLOL!! Is she scared that it won’t debut at #1 with sales alone?

    • . : : h 2 o : : . July 31, 2013

      Keep seething about Beyonce, all the time while she enjoys her BILLION empire and celebrates her $407 million made in the past 7 years alone … :mrgreen:

      • rita ora album is not even paltinum in the uk July 31, 2013

        Lady gaga made more money faster and younger than beyonce. Justin bieber is 19 and already near 200 million. Beyonce is like 45 years old.

      • . : : h 2 o : : . July 31, 2013

        I never said she was a better money-maker than GaGa, I was just saying she made $407 million in 7 years … and that doesn’t even include her royalties for the biggest Black tour in recent history – The Mrs. Carter Show …

      • rita ora album is not even paltinum in the uk July 31, 2013

        Ok. Let her retire an enjoy her money. Nothing else for her to do.

      • . : : h 2 o : : . July 31, 2013

        If she was planning to “retire”, she wouldn’t sign a lucrative deal with Warner Bros ..

  18. rita ora album is not even paltinum in the uk July 31, 2013

    HER SINGLE IS THE GLOBAL NUMBER 1 trend on itunes. She is coming to do what beyonce will NEVER EVER DO: SELL RECORDS.

    • cake like lady gaga July 31, 2013

      Sis, could you kindly repeat that for the heaux’s in the back that didn’t hear you

      • rita ora album is not even paltinum in the uk July 31, 2013

        BREAKING NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        HER SINGLE IS THE GLOBAL NUMBER 1 trend on itunes. She is coming to do what beyonce will NEVER EVER DO: SELL RECORDS

    • rita ora album is not even paltinum in the uk July 31, 2013

      global trend on twitter is what I meant

    • . : : h 2 o : : . July 31, 2013

      The same Sybil who claimed “The Mrs. Carter Show” would never ever even outgross 1D’s tour, and Bey could never ever go stadiums …

      So I guess I’ll bookmark this too….. So I can KIIII @ it when Beyonce once again proves you wrong ..

      • rita ora album is not even paltinum in the uk July 31, 2013

        The full numbers are not in yet. And said she will never play a stadium in 1st world country like the UK OR USA AND I AM RIGHT.

        I am gonna wait for the official tour numbers, not some fake ass site who got the numbers wrong. One D are 18 years old their bigger at 18 than beyonce was at their age. They actually sell records. Beyonce is no longer selling records. She is like Tina Turner, can tour, but will never ever chart again.

        Time to retire.

      • . : : h 2 o : : . July 31, 2013

        Beyonce will never play a stadium in the US or the UK?

        LMAO, she did both on her tour … Twickenham in the UK, Mercedes-Benz Superdome in the states, and even a third one in Poland …

        And you do realize artists make more money on tours from stadiums in Brazil than those in Europe if ticket prices were higher, right?

        Beyonce’s dates in Brazil are doing excellently despite outrageous prices.

        So Beyonce got nothing to worry about at this point!


        By the way, only numbers PollStar admitted to be false were Rihanna’s numbers “because her team did not update her with enough numbers like Beyonce’s team did” … So leave Beyonce out of it please …

        Her numbers are 100% accurate :mrgreen:


        And IDGAF how old 1D are or their stats, I’m just reminding you of something you said perviously : “Beyonce’s tour will not even outgross 1D tour” …

      • . : : h 2 o : : . July 31, 2013

        update them*

      • Drew July 31, 2013

        To add to H20s comment.. Beyonce sold out 13 dates in Australia and had to add another 4. Rihanna just about sold out 10 dates LOL. 1Ds success is ONLY because they are young boys and appeal to young girls, will they still be relevant when they reach 25, let alone 31? Plus Beyonce was closer to how them 18 year olds are than Rihanna was, remember a little thing called Destiny’s Child? Independent Women and Survivor came out when she was 19.

      • . : : h 2 o : : . August 1, 2013

        LMAO, Bey was in the age of 19 watching “The Writing’s on the Wall” go 8x platinum, I don’t see any of these ladies she listed doing that tbh…

  19. jfkasy July 31, 2013

    When BTW came out my ass was bandwagon but now i feel lyk i’m a real stan coz not since BTW have i been excited about pop music.Even though BTW was kinda pretentious in its wanting to be a huge gay movement,Gaga never fails to amaze and her long haitus really left an emptiness in me that no one has filled up ,not even rihanna can quench my longing for pop satisfaction the way Gaga does.F*** these lame basic rnb stanning b****** on this site who call Gaga a gimmick * call me when ciara and kelly’s combined album sales knock past 150K*,as for me i’m black and african but i’m a modern and innovative guy and Gaga is it for me.Art.Innovation.Versatility.Artpop.

    • cake like lady gaga July 31, 2013

      @JKF you better PREACH that verse!!!!!!!

  20. cake like lady gaga July 31, 2013

    NOT at the third-world trolls thumbing my comments down though..

    Remain salty you third world f***!!!

  21. . : : H 2 O : : . July 31, 2013

    Good luck to GaGa with “Applause” 😀

    • rita ora album is not even paltinum in the uk July 31, 2013

      She will murder beyonce and u know it. Her single and album will s*** on beyonc legacy and the artpop tour will bury beyonce. Even though she came out in 2008, her net worth is soon dwarfing beyonce who is 45 and been out for 15 years. By the time gaga is 30. BEYONCE will not be around.

      • . : : h 2 o : : . July 31, 2013

        Good luck for her doing that … All the time while 31YO Beyonce remains unbothered in her billion dollar empire …

      • rita ora album is not even paltinum in the uk July 31, 2013

        OK. then beyonce should be content with her empire, kid and keep it moving. But she is still trying to struggle to get on top 40 radio. I agree with you….she should just retire and enjoy her so called empire, cos she will never ever sell records again or pet played on top 40 radio.

      • . : : h 2 o : : . July 31, 2013

        And when you can make hundereds of millions and add them up to a billion dollar empire, why would you give a f*** about your sales?

  22. rita ora album is not even paltinum in the uk July 31, 2013

    Unlike beyonce, I like the fact That gaga, took time AWAY from the spotlight. Gaga has seen that overexposure can KILL a career. Look at beyonce! All those PR gimmicks, including the trayvon martin stunt has not made it any easier for to get top 40 airplay, while TOP 40 IS WAITING, AND I mean waiting for gaga. Beyonce’s buddy Rita whora tried to FORCE the GP to make her happen and she has not even sold a million albums ANYWHERE IN THE WORD. NOT EVEN Combined sales.

    Gaga , JT, Daft punk will take 2013. Rih, katy, EM etc will all do their thing too. As will Bruno mars who gets crazy top 40 airplay here in LA. Beyonce, will not even be on the charts. She is just not top 40 material. I do not expect iggy azalea to make it in the USA either. In terms of newcomes, Look out for Arana grande, who gets played in LA hardcore, on bother power105 and kiss and miley has her white rihanna thang jumping.

    This about sums up the american music industry.

    • channel_ROMAN July 31, 2013

      Why are you talking about Beyonce and Top 40 airplay when she doesn’t even have music out? That’s like you bothering a pit when it’s in his cage. Do that when it’s out and HUNGRY.

  23. Lamb 4 Life July 31, 2013

    So Discountga is back with her desperate attempts for attention. I wonder gimmicks it will put of the bag this time.

  24. NewLife July 31, 2013

    Alot of artists can learn a thing or 2 from Gaga! B**** comes out of no where and gives u the business without even flinching. Album date is set, 1st video ready to premiere and the song hasnt even been released yet! #BOSSBITCH Gaga has my support!

    • rita ora album is not even paltinum in the uk July 31, 2013

      ifThis is what beyonce should of done……… if she was a REAL legend and the female MJ.

      But she never was, all she was a RNB diva who had a goo run and a dad BUYING HER accolades .

      • . : : h 2 o : : . July 31, 2013

        Receipts that she “buys” her accolades, or nothing happened …

    • rita ora album is not even paltinum in the uk July 31, 2013

      Beyonce done the opposite.; she was begging teh GP to give her a chance to slay, but it was rejected and that is why she scrapped her multi million dollar album and went into hiding – I mean touring.

      • . : : h 2 o : : . July 31, 2013

        “Beyonce continues to work on her album, nothing ever was scrapped or delayed.” – Beyonce’s reps to MTV.

        I provides receipts, those are my receipts.

        What about you?

      • rita ora album is not even paltinum in the uk July 31, 2013

        That, my friend is called Damage control. Watch scandal, that is Oliva pope’s job, to spin. This came after Diplo let the cat out the bags. Ooops

      • . : : h 2 o : : . July 31, 2013

        Diplo later clarified he was talking about one of the songs he wrote for her were scrapped, not the whole “album”, so …..

      You said something nice for once….wow.

  26. CiaraForEver July 31, 2013

    I am here for Gaga. No wonder R**** isn’t releasing another album this November.

    • rita ora album is not even paltinum in the uk July 31, 2013

      Rih is still on tour., She will play barbados in Nov and 23 dates will be added in Latin America. But She has recorded most of LP 8, so look out for it in 2014. She is not gonna give beyonce room.

      • CiaraForEver July 31, 2013

        B**** bye she still found the time to record during that other Tour with the red hair so sit with the lame ass excuses. B**** only releases when she can get all the limelight. Thirsty b****.

      • . : : h 2 o : : . July 31, 2013

        I’m sure Beyonce will release her album whenever she’s ready regardless …

      • rita ora album is not even paltinum in the uk July 31, 2013

        When beyone FINALLY drops and LP, it will flop. TOP 40 radio is not here for. In LA, they play Rih hard on top 40- SO, when – if comes out, it flop and fizzle away with out any one giving 2 shits.

        If rih drops and LP in NOV, it will be all good. TOP 40 have proven they have Rih back and she will slay up teh charts. I am cool either way. I will cop in nov 2013 or 2014. ciara LP is not even on itunes anymore HA HA AH good.

      • CiaraForEver July 31, 2013

        Do you fancy Beyonce or something? Who said anything about that b****? Are you secret lesbian for her and you’re mad at her cos you’re parents will disown you if they found out?

      • . : : h 2 o : : . July 31, 2013

        Just like her tour was supposted to flop?

    Katy Perry new album is coming 22 / 09. It will be called Prism.

    Beyonce and her pushback is looking like the biggest joke of recent years in the game. You mean, Even katy perry is dropping and LP over bey.

    Why is this suddenly about beyonce? Grow up people.. Beyonces has been the pop girl its lord gagas time now “Queen Of Pop”
    Lady Gaga > Rihanna
    My opinion

  31. Little Monster July 31, 2013

    Eyasssssssssssssssssss I am ready. Gaga is coming to snatch all wigs and you know it. I am here for some REAL pop music not teeny bop s*** Tittie Perry will put out. I have my coins ready for whatever she wants to throw at us.
    And btw I love Beyonce. Cant stand this obsessed troll always thinking about her. Beyonce will be a legend, many see her as a young legend now. The fact she is still put up against people of a younger generation shows her power. You will know she is irrelevant when she is not on anyones minds. People talk about her being scared, why isn’t Rihanna releasing an album in November like she always does alongside Gaga huh?

    • Brazilian Beyonce!!! July 31, 2013

But I’m a LittleMonster for Life loved the The Fame,Fame Monster Born & I already know I’m going Buy & Love #ARTPOP witch comes out Nov 11!
