Features The Single "Applause"!
Gaga recruited a variety of producers for her third studio album including Madeon Zedd, RedOne and DJ White Shadow. Featured guests include R. Kelly, T.I. Twista, and Too Short while the album contains the single "Applause" which peaked at number 4 on the US Billboard Hot 100.
"Lady Gaga is at her peak when she's playing the neon queen of all the world's outcasts. And with her constant prodding, her Little Monsters have filled the biggest big tent in modern pop. But in the five years since Stefani Germanotta's arrival, weird has become the currency that overwhelmingly fuels pop culture from seapunk Tumblrs to American Horror Story. So for Gaga to stay on top in 2013, she has to keep cranking up the cray.
"For better and for worse, Artpop meets the mandate. It's a bizarre album of squelchy disco (plus a handful of forays into R&B) that aspires to link gallery culture and radio heaven, preferring concepts to choruses. It's sexual but not sexy, filled with bitchy fashion designers and one-liners..." - rollingstone.com
