As previously announced, the 16-track album features collaborations with Ariana Grande, BLACKPINK and Elton John. The first song, “Chromatica,” is simply a minute-long interlude, which very much feels like the opening of a movie or live show. (In that vein, “Chromatica II” and “Chromatica III” are like brief act breaks.) The album then launches into “Alice,” a Lewis Carroll Alice in Wonderland tribute of sorts, but it’s “Sour Candy” that’s capturing plenty of fans’ attention as it shot to the most viewed female collaboration in 24 hours with nearly 22 million views. Outside of these standout tracks, fans are loving the entire thing and shouting it from their phones/laptop/computers.

refers to her “juicy choruses” as “wildly gratifying.” USA Today called the entire thing “euphoric” and her “best album in a decade,” while The Guardian says Chromatic is Gaga’s “truest self.”Chromatica was originally scheduled to be released on April 10, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, Mother Monster pushed that date back but that doesn’t mean there haven’t been plenty of teasers for her sixth studio album. The first single, “Stupid Love,” dropped in February, giving everyone a reason more than Valentine’s Day to deck themselves out in pink. Meanwhile the singer had previously promised that the album would be a celebration of the history of female dance music, and revealed collaborators included the likes of Skrillex, BloodPop, Burns, Axwell and Tchami.“I put all my heart, all my pain, all my messages from the other realm that I hear of and what they tell me to tell the world, and I put it into music that I believe to be so fun and energetically really pure,” Gaga told Apple Music host Zane Lowe ahead of the release. “I want people to dance and feel happy.”Looks like she’s achieved exactly that.[video_embed id='1964716']RELATED: You have to see this father and daughter duo's cover of Lady Gaga's 'Shallow'[/video_embed]
“Psychologically, it's something that I can't explain... scratch my nails into the dirt to pull me out okay...The scars on my mind are on replayThe monster inside you is torturing me”imagine if we didn’t know these lyrics belong to a dance pop track ?#Chromatica pic.twitter.com/erolMfa20N— ???? ?
