Led by ‘Stupid Love’ and burgeoning Billboard smash ‘Rain On Me,’ the set marks a return to the uptempo, dance-driven, outlandish incarnation of the star many became enarmored with over a decade ago.
That Grape Juice has had the LP on repeat this week. Join us below to find out which five tracks are oh so essential on ‘Chromatica’…
Immense, intense, epic!
This barnstorming anthem ends the album with a bang. Tailor made for stadiums, it’s big, bold, and blazing.
It’s sure to draw comparisons to a certain Material Girl, but whatever the case this is one song we want to wear over and over again.
Fans thirsty for another taste of ‘The Fame’ will likely gravitate to this quirky cut.
Dark, thumping, and vocally adventurous, ‘911’ packs ample punch. Lyrically, it reminds of Gaga’s uncanny ability to make even the saddest of narratives demand we move to the dance-floor…all while she sings “my biggest enemy is me, pop a 911. My biggest enemy is me, pop another one. ”
Rain On Me
On the whimsical planet of ‘Chromatica’, this Ariana Grande collab serves as its central gem. For, it’s “the track” that powers the project in a way that shouldn’t be understated.
Beyond the potency of this diva pairing on paper, ‘Rain’ re-engages Gaga with her Pop-Electronic roots in a manner that is (of all the tracks present) most palatable to the masses.
In many ways, it functions as a trailer for an album comprised of songs that are much more adventurous; yet are songs that are rendered all the more digestable because they spring from this.
On such a high octane project, this delicious slice of electric funk is a welcome shift in tempo. It oozes a soulfulness that is appreciated.
Of all the songs present, this flavorsome bop drives in the most Urban direction – picking up House, Pop, and EDM elements along the way.
K-Pop superstars BLACKPINK add a fresh dimension to this colorful track and are one of many reasons this demands the single treatment.
