October 30, 2013

Gaga’s back with with another hit this week! Following her release of “Do What U Want” feat. R. Kelly last week, her latest single “Venus” was launched on Monday.

Using similar music execution tactics as Bieber’s “Music Monday’s”, Gaga is now 2 for 3 with her releases leading up to her album ARTPOP. She’s also 2 for 3 in bare-bottom album cover art!

The track is carrying on her 90s theme from the previous week with an old-school touch. “Venus” is simply an out-of-this-world love song with a radio-friendly chorus and accompanying her vocals comes a booming club beat in the background with electronics and drums. Although the track is titled Venus, she’s mentioning all the planets, which ultimately allows her to make a Uranus joke: “Don’t you know my ass is famous?” she sings.

The track chorus also has Gaga proclaiming her love for a mystery person, “When you touch me I die/ Just a little inside/ I wonder if this could be love/ This could be love,” she sings. “‘Cause you’re out of this world/ Galaxy, space and time/ I wonder if this could be love/ This could be love.”

As we mentioned before, Gaga released her single simultaneously with Justin Bieber’s latest Music Monday (Recovery) but this week One Direction joined the party as well. She sent out a supportive tweet to the British group saying, “Busy day in music for releases, but happy to be aside @onedirection on those charts! Show them what your made of men! HardWork! Love, #Venus”

Her music has been doing tremendously on the iTunes charts with her releases reaching #1 last week and #2 this week. If you’re wondering how, we’ll point the finger at her devoted “Little Monsters” and her strategically planned iTunes release tactics. Yes, Gaga has found a way to outsmart those charts. While her album ARTPOP is currently on pre-order, as tracks get lifted from the list their chart ratings include all those from pre-orders as well. So there it is, the secret behind her chart-topping success week after week… But shhh! Don’t tell iTunes!


If you’re curious about what else is in store for her album, Gaga recently shared on twitter, “Each song on ARTPOP was inspired by different types of adrenalin, so it’s an expression of the various rushes. I want you to feel them.”

The last time a song hit the airways titled “Venus” was Shocking Blue’s track which was later surfaced again with a cover done by Bananarama. However, these tunes share nothing but the title!

Be sure to purchase “Venus” on iTunes now and look out for ARTPOP releasing November 11th!
