    Here's What Lady Gaga's Next Album Should Sound Like, According To Her Little Monsters

    Slay us, Stefi.

    It's been less than two years since Lady Gaga released ARTPOP but, let's be real, it feels like it's been a lot longer.

    While ARTPOP was not the flop Katy Cats would have you believe, it definitely didn't live up to expectations. Instead of rushing a follow-up, however, Gaga shifted her focus to other projects. In 2014, she released a duet album with Tony Bennett and, more recently, she began a multi-episode arc as the vampy, vampiric Elizabeth on American Horror Story: Hotel.

    After a 23-month break from the pop scene, however, Stefani Germanotta finally seems ready to reclaim her crown. In just the last few weeks, she's released two new songs and begun talking about her fifth album. Billboard recently named her Woman Of The Year. Things, it would seem, are a happening.

    We recently asked the Little Monsters in BuzzFeed Community to share what they hope their fave will do on her next album and this what they had to say:

    1. "It needs to be her most vulnerable album to date."

    "I think GaGa needs to do a fusion sound of all the music she has created. It needs to be her most vulnerable album to date. It shouldn't have to copy other sounds from other artists but her signature Lady sound should arise above all!"

    2. "I hope that Lady Gaga returns to her roots."

    "I hope that Lady Gaga returns to her roots & creates an album similar to The Fame."

    3. "I'm expecting hard-hitting pop."

    "Gaga is working with RedOne again which is a DREAM COME TRUE! So I'm expecting hard hitting pop like 'Bad Romance' again."

    4. "I don't want people to have overly high expectations for her again."

    "I would want Gaga to do an album like The Fame Monster again, but I also don't want her new album to get overhyped because I don't want people to have overly high expectations for her again."

    6. "I expect lots of leather and sledgehammer, bone-crushing beats."

    "I want Lady Gaga's next album to be a mix of dance pop and anthems. No rock. No country. As a pop purist, I expect lots of leather and sledgehammer, bone-crushing beats."

    7. "Lady Gaga needs to do ARTPOP again, but bigger, better and more dramatic."

    "Lady Gaga needs to do ARTPOP again, but bigger, better and more dramatic. I think it was more like a half formed idea that she had that wasn't actually all that risky and it came across as a bit 'eh.' She's known for risky music — I mean Born This Way was basically 90's pop- something everyone said she should never do. I think if ARTPOP had some more electronic influences and had a hint of her Monster EP, it'd be unstoppable. But that's just my opinion."

    But, really, at this point, we'd probably settle for anything.
