The New Lady Gaga Album Tracklist Has Leaked, And Features Collaborations With Elton John, Ariana Grande, And Blackpink
I don’t know who’s in charge of keeping Lady Gaga’s new album Chromatica on lockdown, but, so far, they’ve done a shit job. First the lead single, Stupid Love, leaked weeks early, and then, this morning, Target posted the album for pre-order on their site with the full tracklist visible. They’ve since removed that version. Dumb mistake, or dumb PR move?
Lady Gaga (seen above, three faces ago in 2016) previously posted Chromatica’s artwork to Instagram, but blurred out the tracklist and other info. But, thanks to Target, we now know the album features collaborations with Elton John, Ariana Grande, and South Korean girl group Blackpink.
Because you can’t delete anything on the World Wide Web, here’s the un-blurred Chromatica artwork:

If you’re like me, your eyes are allergic to that font and color combo, so here’s a legible version:
1. Chromatica I
3. Stupid Love
4. Rain On Me ft. Ariana Grande
5. Free Woman
6. Fun Tonight
7. Chromatica II
9. Plastic Doll
10. Sour Candy ft. Blackpink
13. Chromatica III
14. Sine from Above ft. Elton John (what a dummy, she spelled “Sign” wrong!)
15. 100 Doves
Lady Gaga and Elton are old buds; she’s godmother to his two kids with David Furnish. Elton just performed in her One World: Together At Home concert, she performed an Elton tribute at the 2018 Grammys, and he recently talked about how his love for Gaga fuelled his feud with Madonna (LOL as if that tire fire needed any more fuel).
Rumors of a collaboration between Ariana and Gaga have been swirling ever since Ariana posted this pic that looked like it may have been taken in a studio (note: this is from an account called “ariana_deleted”… not since Lindsay Lohan has a celebrity posted and immediately deleted so much content):

Thanks to the coronavirus, the release of Chromatica has been delayed indefinitely. So has the tour that was scheduled for this summer. So it looks like Gaga’s Little Monsters will have to hold onto their butts for the pandemic to pass. Unless a gay scientist can use this exciting collab news as an incentive to find a cure, and- oh look, he did it! We’re saved!
