ewww... That's definitely not the Gaga I like. this is basic af... like... Selena, Bebe, Demi, .... hell this could be anyone lol
Even "Flame" by Tinashe sounds like a creative Masterpiece compared to The Cure.
I know that not every song has to be something "special" but I just don't like this whole new uninspired generic Radio-Pop-Sound :-?
So I just pretend this never happened and I'll go back listening to some Joanne Songs if feel like it.

It may be abit basic but it's better than half of Joanne

Sounds like a 2017 hit on the radio.

Uhmm it's nice but I wish the chorus was a bit more catchy. It kinda reminds me of "Flame" by Tinashe though. :lol:

hella basic and trend-chasing. it would be nice to see her score another huuuge hit, and this song is generic enough to pull it off! so good for her, but I don't think I'll ever have a high opinion of this. it's not even particularly fun/addictive tbh :(

weird transition from Joanne to this. is it a new lead single, or just some random thing? kinda excited for a new album so soon since Joanne wasn't a huge event for me, but if she plans to go all Chainsmokers, no thanks.

I do agree with the comments that it's refreshing not to see her trying too hard

So after seeing the crazy hype for this, I was expecting something on the level of the GOATs Telephone, Alejesus, Paparazzi..... but I ain't getting that.

Maybe it'll sound better in HQ, all I've heard is the live recording off youtube.

I'm hear for some Pop Gaga though!

i mean i agree with everyone saying it's basic but i kinda understand her for releasing this, she's been trying everything without it really paying off, so of course she will try a more commercial/mainstream approach

she can do better. the TFM stuff was irresistible and accessible pop but still had something special about it

this feels devoid of any personality whatsoever. but maybe in her case it's better that her personality doesn't show :lol: and she's no longer in her peak period, so maybe basic and Gaga-less is the only thing that could get her near the top again

This is definitely trying to go after a hit on the radios. This is accessible to radios and the less Gaga the best for her. Maybe her label realized people were sick of her ?

It's cute. Kinda remind me of Gaga before she was famous. The song is lacking personality though. It could have been released by anyone. Joanne>>> The Cure

The song is general but it's catchy for mainstream listeners, I think it can pay off.

This is one of the most anti-Gaga songs she's ever recorded; literally anyone could have done this. I hate the Chainsmokers-like mini-dance break in the chorus. However, it seems like a grower; I'm on play four and I'm enjoying it more with each spin. If this ends up being a big hit, when "Million Reasons" couldn't... :lol:

I like this a lot, but it is very mainstream..and could have been made by a lot of other artists..
