Joanne is a journey into the woman behind the Mother Monster that we all know.
No more flashy meat dresses – the lady shows that she’s got the pipes and the technical artistry to stand out from the rest of the pop girls.
After the so-called “ARTFLOP” era, which still sold over 2.3 million album copies worldwide, Gaga spent an entire year reinventing her image in the public eye.
After a jaw dropping Sound of Music tribute at the 2015 Oscars, winning a golden globe for her role as the Countess in American Horror Story: Hotel, and paying tribute to David Bowie at the 2016 Oscars, this exposition of pure raw talent culminated in the release of her most personal and heart wrenching album to date.
Fret not long time fans; there are still plenty of pop-gaga sounds throughout the album; from the heavy pop anthem Perfect Illusion, to the self-loving dance-floor bop Dancin’ in Circles, or the needs-to-be-the-next-single standout Diamond Heart.
However, its Joanne’s more personal, stripped down tracks, such as the album titled track Joanne (a tribute to her late aunt), Million Reasons (an ode to her fans), and Angel Down (a nod to black lives matter), which hit the hardest and haunt the listeners after every play.
Besides the music, the Joanne era has been the highlight of the Lady's career. Performing at the Victoria Secret Fashion Show, delivering an earth-shattering Superbowl show, and now, announced as a Coachella headliner - she is constantly proving that she is one of the best performers of our generation.
With Million Reasons peaking at number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, let's hope our good sis Joanne continues to slay.
