Single Review-Lady Gaga “Applause”

Words by Elizabeth Tolbert

After much anticipation, Lady Gaga has finally premiered “Applause”, her first single in two years. The synth-driven song is upbeat, fun, and is already a huge hit. “Applause” demonstrates what Gaga does best with its catchy lyrics and extremely danceable music. However, the single doesn’t deviate from Gaga’s typical musical repertoire and is in fact more indicative of her earlier work, such as “Just Dance”. Yet there is something about “Applause” that makes me want to listen to it on repeat for days on end. “Applause” is an intriguing indicator of what Lady Gaga has in store for her new album and is keeping fans and critics alike interested in the outcome.
