New Song: Lady Gaga – ‘A-YO’

Published: Tuesday 18th Oct 2016 by Sam

With just days to go before Lady Gaga‘s album ‘Joanne’ officially lands in stores, the Pop star has debuted new song ‘A-YO’ on the stream scene.

Produced by the singer alongside Mark Ronson and BloodPop, the high-octane cut is rooted in the raw sound promised for the project.

There’s been murmurs about this being serviced as the next single from the LP. And, upon listening, it’s understandable why.

Check out ‘A-YO’ below…

While not Gaga’s most compelling effort, the track is catchy and boasts instantly infectious hooks.

The likes of ‘Dancin’ In Circles’ and ‘Million Reasons’ may be stronger songs, but this is (arguably) a stronger single.

How this pans out ultimately depends on whether Mother Monster is eyeing hits, album sales, or both.

‘Joanne’ hits stores and streaming services this Friday (October 21st).

    And the repetitive, predictable hatin asss ‘flop’ comments start in 5, 4, 3, 2,…

    • Ughhhh October 18, 2016

      The only thing that is predictable are these flop singles. Lmao

      • Truthsayer the Deplorable October 18, 2016

        Hahaha….! Nice one!

      • SMH October 18, 2016

        Lol as predicted. I could set my watch by you clowns and your predictable stupidity.

      • JOHNVIDAL October 18, 2016

        You´re pathetic here hating on real talent the whole day. You must be a biggest fan than any of us who like and respect Gaga. Get a life hater. SMH says is right. You are a bunch of pathetic souls who stan for charts, not talent. Even @suicide blonde says the album is a great body of work. That must mean something 🙂

      • Ughhhh October 18, 2016

        Lmao this single isn’t good and neither was the last two singles I have heard. If that makes me a hater, so be it! But so far her comeback has been garbage. Yea Gaga has vocals but she tries way too hard and it fûcks up her potential. Vocals ain’t everything if you can’t deliver the right song. I don’t give a damn if an album makes the charts because there are so many great artist with amazing albums that don’t sell very well. Gaga is overrated. If you don’t like my opinion, Oh well, have a nice day!

      • JOHNVIDAL October 19, 2016

        Don´t expalin anything acting like you are here hating cause you don´t like the songs. Firstly, Million Reasons is amazing. Secondly, you were here hating before each of those singles were released. You were here waiting for every single Gaga post as a true fan in denial since August just to say it was horrible, no matter the material. You were ready to say it. A pathetic look.

        Lady gaga used to set such a high bar
        For everything
        From music to videos to style

        Born this way was the peak end
        It was really wierd great pop album
        But artpop and now this

        I heared the album
        Its by most a shadow of what she used to be
        And its sad because it feels like she doesnt listen to the team
        And that she wants to do it by herself
        But she forgot that lady gaga is a brand not a humen
        And she needs all those talented people to help her create what was lady gaga
        But this is album is by far the most generic and boring album she has ever created
        Definitly not Gaga

    • ? October 18, 2016

      As for this song! It’s a big NO from me! Enjoy your day bottoms ?

  2. Rima October 18, 2016

    So addicting omg!

    • RihNaj October 18, 2016

      She kinda sounds like Christina,Miley and P!nk combined on this tract ?

  4. meme October 18, 2016

    I really like this song. Its 1 of favs. This along with dancing in circles. I need choreography and some glit and glam for this video tho.

    • RihNavy October 18, 2016

      All those things you want, are what Rihanna needs

      • Meme October 18, 2016

        1st of all Rihanna don’t need anything, she is doing just fine doing what she’s doing. Gaga is struggling and needs to reevaluate.

      • JOHNVIDAL October 18, 2016

        But Rihanna was truly struggling last year too sis and they needed all types of singles, videos and deals to get something to finally “Work” about the Anti era, which was the single Work lol Gaga and others can have careers despite struggling moments on the charts. Rihanna cannot take that risk and her team knows it.

  5. IStan4Rihanna. (Bajan Beauty) October 18, 2016

    This song is the albums only saving grace in terms of single-success thus far.


    With “Perfect Illusion” & “Million Reasons” being complete non-events, the former of which is already out of the Hot 100 after five weeks, I suggests she sends this to radio tomorrow and starts promoting the hell out of it. It could crossover into country/alterative radio too.


    It’s a “potential” smash!

    • RihNavy October 18, 2016

      Where’s Flop on Brain on the BB100 sis?

    • JOHNVIDAL October 18, 2016

      Has it crossed your mind that she clearly knows all those singles (and her team I mean) are not potential nowadays smash hits? They must know it. Could it be that she´s going for recognition? That recognition she´s been getting for the last 3 years everywhere? Charts are not everything. Some people´s chart obsession is crazy. Remember when Rihanna supposedly tried it last year (going for recognition and being more mature) but failed miserably… but unlike Gaga she cancelled everything and re-recorded everything as the real non-artist that she is just to be able to finally get one more of her hit singles? Just some thoughts 🙂

      • danna October 18, 2016

        How did she fail miserably when FFS was a bigger hit than anything Gaga has released since The Edge Of Glory (yes, it did better even than Applause). BBHMM did well for an urban song too (1.1-1.2 million in the US alone). American Oxygen was a huge flop, yes, but who doesn’t flop at a certain point? You wish your faves flopped as hard as Rihanna especially that nobody in your avi.

      • JOHNVIDAL October 19, 2016

        Don´t you get it? It must have been a big struggle if she (well her team, it´s not like she´s an artist in charge) had to decide a delay to re-record new material. Gaga doesn´t need to do taht even if she flops. I hope you finally get it.

  6. Kris October 18, 2016

    Y’all playing games with life. This is complete contrived trash! So long Gaga… it was fun.

  7. Oh, Guuurrrl I was born fabulous October 18, 2016

    And ya’ll got the nerve to talk mad s*** about Perfect Illusion, I’d rather have Perfect Illusion than Million Reasons and this s***.

    • JOHNVIDAL October 18, 2016

      No, Million Reasons is a fantastic songs with great covals. It´s one of the ebst of her career. I don´t know about teh rest of the album cause I´ll wait to buy it next week. But so far all I´m hearing are good things (not from the haters always waiting to trash her obviously).

  8. RihNavy October 18, 2016

    Hmmm…I use.

    I heard the album already and it feels like 40 minutes of the same song with only maybe 2 or 3 good tracks. It’s one thing to try a new sound and tone things down and another to deviate and turn them off completely. I agree with Roseanne’s fat tumblr no life having a$$, in regards to this album being lucky to even debut with 100k

  9. Truthsayer the Deplorable October 18, 2016

    Smh. This album is gonna flop so bad, there will be no illusion about it, much less a perfect one.

    This is a jam after about two listens what are y’all saying…wish this was her first single..just hope this catches on and like a commenter earlier said it could cross over to country/alternative ..i must admit gaga has nice vocals

  11. Molly October 18, 2016

    This is supposed to be a bop? I’ll pass. The material isn’t for me.

    • Max October 18, 2016

      Girl you Stan for Selena Gomez you wouldn’t know good quality music even if it tickled your clît

      • Molly October 18, 2016

        Selena has bops babe… The GP are not gonna buy Ayo sorry.

      • Max October 18, 2016

        Are you even a true Selena fan or you just jumping on the bandwagon?

    • RihNavy October 18, 2016

      You give too many bj’s to fully appreciate a good bop sis. So this isn’t for you.

      • ?Yellow Diamonds? October 18, 2016

        Rihnavy, you’ll such a troll! Baby get a life.

  12. Max October 18, 2016

    Hmm not bad I like it, should have been the first single but oh well let’s hope her team picks it as the next single and hopefully save the era

  13. Mark111 /.\ October 18, 2016

    Everyone can’t be Rihanna. Have the ability to switch genres with ease. The GP were already over Gags, now even her fans can’t get into her. Some artist only have ONE lane, and her lanes happens to be 2008-2011 EDM. Now that even EDM DJs aren’t even using that sound anymore, she’s lost. I called it and is not surprised. BC even the Gag you loved wasn’t even her.

    • RihNavy October 18, 2016

      You just HAAAD to bring Rih into this. Huh ugly?

    • JOHNVIDAL October 18, 2016

      Rihanna different genres??? LMAO What about Rihanna doing pure Jazz? Or pure anything? LOL Mate Rihanna is easy pop and that´s it. You stans kill me with the reach. Why wasn´t Rihanna able to succeed last year then? 🙂 🙂 🙂

  14. Chile Please!!! October 18, 2016

    “Ay-Yo”!! WTF was this?? ***blinks eyes twice***

  15. ?? October 18, 2016

    Atleast she didn’t release three singles with music videos and live promo and decide to call them buzz singles when they failed to top any charts or have any impact. Atleast she didn’t push back her album release for more than a year after seeing that perfect illusion is a flop or letting the remainder of her stans wait another year for a new album. At least she didn’t have her stans unlock 362726252782 rooms to have the album released

    • Datredd23 October 18, 2016

      Four five seconds alone has slayed Gagas last 4 singles combined including art pop era lol

    • ?Yellow Diamonds? October 18, 2016

      Girl you trying too hard, gargoyle is over. accept it, move on.

    • Mark111 /.\ October 18, 2016

      FourFive and #BBHMM charted higher than any song from Johnathan so far. And American Oxygen spent more weeks on the charts than any singles from Gags upcoming album. BTW Perfect Delusion is in the 90s on the charts this week. Maybe she should push it back, in fact scrap the whole thing seeing that even her fans don’t like the album. 🙂

  16. ?? October 18, 2016

    Let’s hope Gaga asks Nokia or Blackberry for some help so she can end the era with a platinum plaque

    • Mark111 /.\ October 18, 2016

      Just like her, those two companies are has-been flops.

    Not feeling it.

    • Lv October 18, 2016

      That’s ironic, that was the GP’s reaction to Ciara’s last few albums.

      • #JACKIE October 18, 2016

        I wish you A*** Ass b****** would find a new drag.

      • Mark111 October 18, 2016

        Four, last four albums. A few would be two. Now Ciara had a few successful albums.

      • RihNavy October 18, 2016

        Awwweee you made Caitlyn Jenner? 🙁

      • Lv October 18, 2016

        Lol Damn, not the last four albums. Her next album should be called “The chronicles of a flop”.

      • Danzou October 18, 2016

        No mark a few would be three you dumb ass.

  21. YoursTruly October 18, 2016

    I like the verses but the hook fell FLAT. I don’t see this catching on. I wanted her to win too :/ maybe next album , sis.

  22. The Thot You’ll Never Be October 18, 2016

    I swear this gonna flop harder than Rihanna’s performances
    I mean it’s gonna start of with poor sales lower than Anti’s full first week
    And it will drop harder to a spot lower than BEYONCÉ( the 2013 album) in it’s second week
    Just like S******’s Glory hole
    Oh and no Country does not look nor sound good on her
    Although she’s superior to katy perry and Meghan Trailer in every way it’s not trolling when you call a spade a spade

    • BEY>RIH October 18, 2016

      BEYONCE stayed at number 1 its second week with more than 300k sold. It stayed at number 1 the following week also. I doubt Joanne’s total sales will see Self-titled’s first week.

  23. No favs, just here for the music October 18, 2016

    Hmmmm I think I’ll pass. Don’t want this album even downloaded for free lol

  24. Paulo October 18, 2016

    this is cute for a promo single but to bounce back from Perfect Illusion, she needed to come harder. I lowkey feel like she’s trying to flop on purpose cause not even ARTPOP was this messy when it came to singles.

  25. Mark111 /.\ October 18, 2016

    Sounds like something I’d play during my chaturbate sessions

  27. The Thot You’ll Never Be October 18, 2016

    She better hurry up and release that documentary, it, The Superbowl and [ Beyoncé ( cause she might get her song played on a radio station, CAUSE SHE SLAY ) { Lol just kidding } ] are her saving grace
    Perfect Illusion slays a tiny bit ,Million Reasons and A-YO are pure trash the rest will be heard on Friday

  28. Casual-T October 18, 2016

    This song is catchy, but I’m trying to figure out what stations will play this. Country artists don’t really cross over anymore, and this isn’t strictly country enough to do well at country radio. This song is also out of sync with what her fans expect from her. Though the single flopped, I see why the label chose to lead with Perfect Illusion over this. I wish her well, but I’m not sure about this.

  29. Theman October 18, 2016

    This song is great. It’s retro sounding, yet it’s quite catchy. This should definitely be a single. It sounds great.

  30. Kitty Puurrzz October 18, 2016

    Yawn !

  31. weSlay October 18, 2016

    Too many ripped off Madonna progressions to verify and believe in her authenticity now. Talented? Yes but her Madge rip off days and using the urban community to garner attention is ooooo to da ver

    • weSlay October 18, 2016

      Sorry darlingg but the country bumpkins won’t be lapping up this confused Country, Rock, Hip-Hop mesh.

    Gaga is lost

  36. mr.m October 18, 2016

    I like Gaga, she’s talented a all, BUT!!!

    She and Pigreze hilton played a huge role in sabotaging Xtina’s “Bionic” and destroying her career and I’ll never forget that.

    So, all I can say is .. KARAM IS A B#TCH, Joanne 🙂
    EAT IT FLOPGA! #iaintsorry

    • OoohGirl October 18, 2016

      I totally agree. She hijacked Christina’s campaign with Perez. Bad people always finish last.

  37. JOHNVIDAL October 18, 2016

    I trust @suicide blonde and in his list of top songs from the album this wasn´t on it, neither was Perfect Illusion. I think the album probably is a great body of work as a whole, not songs that feel like potential singles (I love Million Reasons, if you hate on that song, you are obviously only trolling). So I´m definitely buying and nothing has indicated me I should change my intentions (definitely not a bunch of haters who are only present to talk pshit and follow charts like it´s their job).

  38. OoohGirl October 18, 2016

    Beyonce is the only artist to consistently deliver, also Rihanna has fared excellent too. They give fans what they want to hear, each time reinventing their sound but stay true their roots. Gaga unfortunately presented this huge stage persona, imagery and now to go to basics it will bomb bigger than Ushers disaster, also releasing singles quickly shows sheer panic. Perfect illusion tanked after a Luke warm response.

  39. HailLegendBeysus October 18, 2016

    A-Yo should have been her lead single. A Million Reasons is sti by far the best song I’ve heard out of the 3 released singles. I haven’t listened to the album yet. Perfect Illusion was okay, but got repetitive, annoying and boring after the first few listens.
    Also DEATH at Perfect Flop being 95 this week on the Hot100. Where’s @RectumPuss at? All that trash talk about Hold Up, well now your fav sits below Hold Up and Million Reasons will soon follow! ???

    • Rosie October 18, 2016

      And this is coming INTO the album release, which is in three days ? Saturday will be a mess.

      • HailLegendBeysus October 18, 2016

        Yesss!!! The draggings come next friday wi be ruthless ????

      • JOHNVIDAL October 19, 2016

        Where is Lana and how is she going to recover from that big quality bump she suffered from Ultraviolence to Honeymoon? Love her but come on. Be nice, I know you know damn well you are loving songs like Million Reasons 🙂 🙂 🙂

  40. Rosie October 18, 2016

    Weren’t Joanna Mann stans screaming about the snippet calling it a SMASH and a BOP? Because I don’t hear either one.
    Joanna Mann will bomb both critically and commercially. Death at his delusional stans on Twitter thinking she ended The Chainsmokers with that passive aggressive ass tweet. They need to be worried about the fact that their fave is now less popular than the “Tumblr artists” they stay dragging (Lana, Halsey, etc.)

  41. FC/JC October 18, 2016

    I hesitated, I said a prayer before clicking play……. Its a NO from me though. (sigh)

  42. Onyourwrostday October 18, 2016

    Tgj is trash for thinking dancing in circles is better than this yeah f****** right cannot wait for this album

  43. Jasmine October 19, 2016

    Garbage. I don’t see why she is putting this style of music out of since nothing I heard so far is a hit. To all the Gaga fans:
    1. Chill
    2. Go out and BUY her album instead of calling people “haters” when they do not like her music.
    3. Repeat #2. If her album flops it is her and her fans fault. BUY the album is you like her so much.

    • JOHNVIDAL October 19, 2016

      Every single of your “arguments” doesn´t make sense. People who are not “chill” are the ones waiting for every gaga post in this blog just to enter and hate, without even knowing the material. There are barely 3 Gaga fans in this blog so i doubt you can call them anything as a group. Who said that if this album doesn´t sell well it is because of anybodys fault? I think you need to relax, not others. You don´t like it, fine. Who told you anything?

      • Jasmine October 19, 2016

        I’ll make my points clear so that you understand.
        1. Chill = People like you (Gaga fans) should stop labeling people as “haters” if they do not like her new music. Everyone is entitled to have their own opinions. You should also stop assuming people like me comment without listening to the new songs (I actually listened to the whole album already). Simply put, I don’t like her album and would never buy an album I do not like. That does not make me a “hater.” It just means I am able to formulate my own opinions.

        2. You and her fans should Go out and BUY her album and stop worrying if other people like or dislike her music. Actions speak louder than words. The very fact that you replied so many times to people that disliked the new songs shows that you are pressed against people that do not like what you like. Chill. People are entitled to form their own opinions and everyone will not have the same opinion as you.

        3. Repeat #2

      • JOHNVIDAL October 20, 2016

        I don´t label anyone as a hater for not liking certian music or a song. I call that to people who ARE haters, and hate on very personal levels and spend their days waiting for the next Gaga or whoever artist post just to keep hating and make everything seem lioke a flop and terrible quality, regardless of what thsoe artists release. Seriously, is it very easy to detect haters. Those I replied to are the ones I know are haters, not only Gaga haters, but also othe real talents haters. I repeat, nothing you said made sense. “Fault”? Who is blaming anyone?… 🙁
