Lady Gaga Joins Apple Music

Published: Tuesday 9th Jun 2015 by Sam

With the aftermath of Apple’s ‘Apple Music’ announcement still making waves, the technology giant has staged a major coup. How? By nabbing Lady Gaga!

Details below…

Mother Monster confirmed her involvement with the Spotify rival today when she shared the snap above with the caption:

So happy for Tim, Jimmy and everyone at @AppleMusic + Beats1. I’m excited to be a part of it. ❤️

The recruitment of the ‘Bad Romance’ belter comes after the company unveiled the likes of Drake and The Weeknd as some of the front-line talent involved in their movement.

It’ll be intriguing to see how Gaga, who hasn’t released a solo album since 2013’s ‘ARTPOP’ leverages the Apple platform in support of her hotly anticipated new album (which she’s been cooking up with longtime collaborator RedOne)

    Apple Music will put Flopdal out of music due to it not using GBs but it won’t really affect Spotify tho, too many subscribers and it influences the charts too much despite it requiring GBs as well

    • Lana Del Fan *I Can Hear The Sirens* June 9, 2015

      Damn. My girls beyonce and Rihanna are about to be in for a rude awakening if they don’t realease a damn joint album, have a pron tape, go skydiving while singing, and tweet on the damn Grammy awards. This is actually quite nerve wrecking cuz I want my queens to be in top. I’m telling you, jay needs to stop being dumb and make tidal cheaper

      • Lana Del Fan *I Can Hear The Sirens* June 9, 2015

        *twerk on the Grammys.

      • RihNaj June 10, 2015

        Tweet sounds better lol she there singing on the Grammy then bam takes phone out and tweet lmao ????????

  2. OMG Logic!!! June 9, 2015

    She looks good. I’ll give her that.

    • The Great Lacefronce. June 9, 2015

      Lies Caca looks like a man

  3. Applause June 9, 2015

    Yes Gaga!!! This will slay Tidal and the flops on it.

  4. DTG June 9, 2015

    Who cares? No one is gonna buy her music, no matter where it’s sold.

  5. The Great Lacefronce. June 9, 2015

    M***** Z and bleachedonce might as well throw in the towel for Tidal they’ll never surpass Spotify or Apple

    • Applause June 9, 2015


  6. DEL BEY June 9, 2015

    #Oooops, it seems its war of the streaming services. I have a feeling with this new partnership with apple and a healthy reality check, Gaga might gain her relevance back next era

  7. Applause June 9, 2015

    The hive and navy are seething over Gaga on Twitter.

    • Mark111 June 9, 2015

      Why? She better have Apple pull an Amazon for her next album.

    • Slayty Perry (1 Billion Views) June 9, 2015

      Girl no one is seething over this hasbeen

  8. Mark111 June 9, 2015

    The one that wasn’t invited to the Tidal party. I think I’ll try Tidal for a month.

  9. Slay_Hive June 9, 2015

    Oh she’ll be lucky to get a steel certification with her next album..#MovingOn #NoNewsHere

  10. Avenger June 9, 2015

    Gross. Call it Caitlyn Gaga because this cross dressing non human is obviously not a real female.

  11. DEL BEY June 9, 2015

    In other news Lana is releasing her third studio album ‘Honeymoon’ this fall, and she’s going back to her roots, no more of that hipster sound that was on Ultraviolence, but back to classic, theatrical, big production Lana that made her famous. Mark my words that Honeymoon will outsell UV, and meet Born To Die’s sales more so, deny it all you want but an ‘unknown’ didn’t sell 5million copies WW with her debut for no reason. * I open this conversation welcoming a constructive discussion, so will the pressed usuals please miss me

    • Mark111 June 9, 2015

      No one cares. Why didn’t you post this on your blog that no one reads? #Oops #WentThere

      • DEL BEY June 9, 2015

        DEATH at you admitting you check my blog, its been what? 6 months since I last posted the link on here, has someone got my blog in their bookMARKS? #Ohh

    • Slayty Perry (1 Billion Views) June 9, 2015

      I drag Lana but Born to Die honestly was a great album. The two efforts following were trash so they got no coins. If she can recreate that magic for Honeymoon then she could sell again. I don’t see 5 million happening again but over 3 million forsure. I don’t like the title though. Sounds like an Ariana Grande album.

      • Mark111 June 9, 2015

        She’s done. Trends don’t last like, her 5 years is up.

      • DEL BEY June 9, 2015

        That’s some good feedback @Slayty, I agree she may not do 5mill again, but hopefully better than UV, and I think she will work with the title and really make it her own, Lana is an acquired taste, but she is great at what she does, her brand is top notch and that’s why she’ll be around longer Aaliyah and her 5 seconds @SkidMark

      • Rosie June 9, 2015

        “Trends don’t last”
        No wonder Rihanna’s career has been a biT messy as of lately.

    • JOHNVIDAL June 10, 2015

      What? Ultraviolence was an amazing album. Probably better than her first musically.
      And well… no, she won´t sell 5 million albums ever again. Most people tend to decline, and in this era sales can´t stop going down. She should be happy if she sells what Ultraviolence sold.

  12. Sandra June 9, 2015

    Gaga who?

    • Mark111 June 9, 2015

      She was a huge star for about 4 years. The world have since moved on, so I understand how you don’t know her. 🙂

  13. Mark111 June 9, 2015

    Lady Gaga, the Ashanti of Pop.

    • Slayty Perry (1 Billion Views) June 9, 2015


    • Barb-wire June 10, 2015

      Stop trolling Markeisha

  14. Slayty Perry (1 Billion Views) June 9, 2015

    LMAO! I can already see her team somehow forcing her generic RedOne electropop down the subscribers throats. The album sales to streams ratio is going to be a real kiii

  15. SCHEISSETHRONED June 9, 2015

    I know u aren’t talking sales being a Katy Stan. She finally sold more than Gaga. Lol like girl bye ain’t no body talking about her

    AND I KNOW THAT AINT A RIHANNA FAN TALKING RELEVANCE. Aren’t we on single… 4? Cause I forgot. Only one certified platinum is the real kiii. #FLOP8 at least my fave had the guts to release. Urs is scary as s***

    • Slayty Perry (1 Billion Views) June 9, 2015

      1 Billion views though. Unlike the gimmick you stan for, Katy doesn’t need shock tactics and controversy to stay relevant. Katy has been scalping on tour but she’s still relevant in the media thanks to Taylor.

      • SCHEISSETHRONED June 9, 2015

        Giiiiirrrrrrlllll them Payola views. I CANNNNNTTT

  16. SCHEISSETHRONED June 9, 2015

    I Lana Del Rey. Ultraviolence WASNT BAD! It was sooo good yall just to basic to see.

    • SCHEISSETHRONED June 9, 2015


    • DEL BEY June 9, 2015

      Good, but nowhere near as good as BTD, and that hunny, makes you the lessor.

    • Rosie June 9, 2015

      I think it’s an actual split between fans. A bunch of the privileged gay types think BTD is better while critics and a lot of people who used to hate her prefer UV. I prefer the latter, but Lana never disappoints so as long as Honeymoon has the cohesiveness of UV with the poppier sound of BTD (but not as overproduced) it’ll be a win-win situation and she’ll officially take the throne of Queen Of Alternative for good (and effectively END Borde).


        Lana is good but Lorde shits on her. Yellow Flicker Beat goes harder than all of Lanas songs combines. Plus she has Grammys and will slay next Era too.

    • JOHNVIDAL June 10, 2015

      Both albums were good. But Ultraviolence was better and more complex musically.
      I´m glad you are able to ignore the trolls always hating on Gaga and give Lana del Rey her props.

  17. Slayty Perry (1 Billion Views) June 9, 2015

    #Throwback When LittleSuicides were offering bl*wbjobs to people who purchased Applause on iTunes. And it still flopped.

    • SCHEISSETHRONED June 9, 2015

      Bad Romance 11x Platinum
      Just Dance 8x Platinum
      Poker Face 9x Platinum
      Applause 3x Platinum
      RIAA just updated her certifications

      Choke on a d***.

      And Taylor turned the GP away from that flat ass b**** a few weeks ago. No one is talking about Rihanna or Katy like wake up

      • Slayty Perry (1 Billion views) June 10, 2015

        Chile boo! Those updates are including streaming, idhtt! Selena Gomez Come & Get It and Demi Lovato Heart Attack sold more than Applause. You know you stan for a has been when you’re bringing up singles released last decade lmao!

    • JOHNVIDAL June 10, 2015

      You are so damn basic and hilarious. How can you keep coming for way superior artists when you stan for Basic Perry?
      Commercially: Her stats are weak. She may have outperformed Lady Gaga this last era (finally) but still none of her achievements are as big as Gaga´s, which will always be there even if she disappears. She has an album or two that have sold way more than what Katy will ever sell and she definitely made more impact than Katy.
      Apart from that, Katy is a joke and Gaga is respected for her talent.

  18. Quinton251 aka Lil Wayne Stan June 9, 2015

    I wish Lil Wayne would have went with Apple, instead of Tidal. This all will be Intresting though, does Spotify have any major artist signed to them?

  19. CL is coming | SNSD, 2NE1, Sistar, T-ara, 4Minute, Exo June 9, 2015

    Not the cunty cats and the lanaholics running up in here. Basic had 1 Era where she outsold gags.

    The ARTPOP Era wasn’t as bad as you stans make it out to be.

    Applause peaked at #2 and stayed in the top 10 for 3 months

    DWUW peaked at #12 with no video

    Platinum ww

    ARTPOP debuted at #1 and had opening sales of 200k+

    Sold more than UltraFlop and

    • DEL BEY June 9, 2015

      Don’t go there heffa, what makes your statement ironic is that Gaga was THE most over hyped, overrated, over saturated act to debut this decade, with a full promotional push behind her trying to shove her down everyone’s throats with her weird twisted crap. Believing her own hype, calling her albums the albums of the century, until she suffered the biggest decline in pop history, with her latest album AF failing to sale a fraction of what her first album did, you can’t last on gimmickry, and gag me has learnt that first hand. Lana stays building a loyal fan base while perfecting her artistic brand, with a bright future to come.


        @DEL Gaga gonna need to cut u a check. You always the first to comment! Thanks boo! #DownlowStan

    • JOHNVIDAL June 10, 2015

      I agree except for the last sentence.
      Mariah is a legend who is in her 26th year of career. She shouldn´t be selling more than Gaga and nobody mentioned her in this post. That was out of order.

  20. Applause June 9, 2015

    Why tf are the basic perry stans talking? No one takes Katy seriously she’s a fad. Gagas talent makes her relevant unlike Katy and Lanas.

    • Rosie June 9, 2015

      Fad is busy playing casino halls while Katy is getting ready to outgross every Fad tour except The Cutter Ball (and that’s ONLY because Fad had 220+ dates, if not Prismatic would probably outgross it) and Lana is on a sold-out arena tour as I type this.
      If the GP really cared about its ~talent!~ as much as its delusional stans claimed Ariana Grande would be the #1 star in the world rn and My Everything would’ve outsold Ultraviolence worldwide with 4 top 10 smash hits.


        B**** don’t even try to put Lanas tour in the same category as the Prismatic World Tour. Honey even you know that was far fetched.

        And iTunes music hasn’t officially announced it, so girl bye! Plus she has NO new music out so why would ppl care? Like Have a seat. Gaga in her worst Era is still 50x more relevant and famous than Lana Del Rey

        This b**** really tried it.

        And the difference between Gagas tours and Katys is TMB and BTWB were back to back tours with high grossings. Katy will not have a successful tour after this. Mark my words her decline is next. Gaga celebrity has been climbing since her Grammys/Oscar/AHS announcement. So have a SEAT!

      • Rosie June 9, 2015

        Crying @ this entire comment. The delusion at you thinking I’m comparing Lana’s tour to Katy’s. All I said was that them being on SOLD-OUT ARENA tours competely dismisses the point that they’re “irrelevant” because they don’t have 8-octave vocals. They’re just fine.
        And STOP being delusional about Katy. This is literally the EXACT s*** Little Cutters said about Katy when the California Dreams Tour grossed less than $60 million, and when she got her 5th #1 from the era, AND outsold Applause by 2x, AND when Prism sold more first week than “albums artist” Gaga who apparently had 100K preorders according to HDD. Fad hasn’t been relevant since 2012 other than the Oscars, and she SURE hasn’t been cool to listen to since 2011 when she started pandering to her delusional suicidal gay stans. And sorry to break it to you, but both Lana and Katy are VERY relevant to younger people today; Katy towards middle/high school aged girls and Lana towards high school/college kids and millennials. Welp.

    • Slayty Perry (1 Billion views) June 10, 2015

      SCREAMING!!! Katy is a fad but Flopga isn’t???????? I CAAANNNNNTTTT! *flatlines*

  21. shakira stan June 9, 2015

    This man at it again….I want tidal to flop so bad but apples are not winning me over with their latest signings ….miss drake and Mr caitlyn gaga…for heavens sake there are way better acts than a slow poke and a has been …whose career lasted shorter than blue ivy’s tacky hair.

  22. L21480 June 9, 2015

    Eff all this music streaming service crap. Real music fans buy CDs. They don’t stream. That’s what lazy millennials whose memories don’t stretch too far before 9/11 do because they’re too ignorant to know better. Oh, and as far as Gaga goes…I wouldn’t drop one nickel on her. You’d have to pay me to listen to one of her songs.

  23. Rosie June 9, 2015

    Good for Fad but dead at no one caring about her joining. I didn’t see one thing about her doing this on my timeline and I’m mutals with a few people who still like Fad. Even The Weeknd got more headlines.
    Anyways unless this gets excellent reviews and offers a student discount in the US (since people there are so CHEAP and stingy) this will flop and perform the same as iTunes Radio/Beats Music, two other competitors who were supposed to put Spotify “out of business.”

  24. nations June 9, 2015

    Tidal will be just fine, obviously apple is following jay z’s footsteps by signing artists to align with their screaming service… jay z will need to sign more artists, a deal with samsung which sells more phones than apple is imminent. I know that most of you would rather see a blackman fail than succeed, that mentality is due to centuries of oppression and lacking self worth

  25. Applause June 9, 2015

    Wait is this dikke clinging to Katy now? LOL that’s how you know Lana ain’t s***.

  26. Applause June 9, 2015

    Lana and Katy stans will forever be mad. Gaga can go from pop to jazz and still relevant.

    • Slayty Perry (1 Billion views) June 10, 2015

      Her pop album flopped and her jazz album got outsold by Barbara “not relevant since your Grandma’s time no promo at all motherf*cking” Streisand. The delusions that this man is relevant, I can’t!!!

      • JOHNVIDAL June 10, 2015

        You are so stupid. Do you think Katy Perry could release a Jazz album to begin with???? LMAO She can´t sing. She´s lucky she doesn´t care about artistry, just like Rihanna, and is not ashamed of releasing radio friendly song after radio friendly song. If not, it would happen to her what Rihanna is living now. Nobody cares if it isn´t for having an easy song by them on the radio.
        Not only that, but Cheek to Cheek did great. You can only name one Jazz album who outsold it, and everybody and their mamma was on that album. Cheek to Cheek was a way better album than Barbra´s (I know for you quality and talent don´t matter though) and it was the one which won best pop album at the grammys, not Barbra´s. Also, her performnces for that album have been stellar, something we´ll never see from katy, her fake flute and her non-singing ass.

  27. @JanetCIARA_ June 10, 2015

    I think Adele will be a name that will link up with Apple in the near future

  28. JOHNVIDAL June 10, 2015

    After watching that performance anything a Katy Perry fan, a Rihanna fan or a Lana del Rey fan (love her music as you all know) can say is irrelevant.
    Seriously, you just embarrass yourselves.

  29. justmeeeee June 11, 2015

    Tidal made Apple very nervous….
