    The Cure has just entered the Spotify top 50 in the US at #47, which is very good exposure.

    Her commercial REBIRTH :disco:

    Who said mainstream pop has to be basic by default? So I should be grateful that Gaga has been so generous to often go beyond that but now it's time to go and compete with the Chainsmokers? This song is hardly worthy of being an album track on The Fame, it's just so uninspired.

    This continues to sink its teeth deeper and deeper. Ultra Nate pissed as hell.

    Apparently there is an album or an EP coming. She had 6 weeks of studio time with DJ White Shadow.

    James Masterton (I thought that whore died, etc) had this to say on his blog:

    The Edge Of Glory?

    So much for a superstar of the new school, what about one of the old school? Lady Gaga's last album Joanne only came out last October, but it has more or less faded from the memory already. It's only chart single of note Perfect Illusion was a true one week wonder, charting at Number 12 largely on the strength of front-loaded sales and then exiting the chart in short order. The second cut which accompanied the long player Million Reasons just never caught fire in the manner hoped and stalled at Number 39 as the calendar turned, not even her Super Bowl performance could help it emulate the kind of chart run it enjoyed back home in America. But the lady didn't get where she is today without attempting a few stunts, hence the surprise debut at her Coachella Festival headline performance of an entirely new track The Cure, one which was released on Saturday last week the moment she came off stage. Mixing things up a little with a tropical house vibe, the single was inevitable a strong seller all week amongst the remaining rump of music downloaders. Number 4 on the sales chart sadly only translates to a Number 23 entry overall as - you guessed it - the track's streams failed to ignite quickly enough (it was the 84th most played single of the week and indeed only managed just over 800,000 total plays). You'd like to think this has some life in it as Gaga going tropical is actually a quite intriguing prospect. But the problem is, it is Lady Gaga. And she just doesn't quite have the profile these days to get through to a crowd who are more interested in Kendrick Lamar.

    Dropping an article about a song being doomed after only 5 days on the charts.

    It's not so much the fact that he's writing it off after 5 days, as the fact that it's still growing on streaming that he's conveniently ignored. 143k on Spotify alone yesterday. That's double what it had the first few days.

    What a sting that final sentence delivers, especially when the article's audience (like myself) probably won't even know what a Kendrick Lamar is.

    Capital and KISS seem to love it. Let's see if Radio 1 follows the trend in the next weeks instead of playlisting indie act Lana Del Rey. :side-eye:

    The Gaga remedy doesn't want to peak too early.

    I streamed it twice today, so there's that too :)

    I think it's rather good but it does sound oddly dated for reasons I can't quite put my finger on at the moment.

    #19 (+4) on the official UK charts.

    This is definitely getting a much better reception on radio and streaming than her previous singles here.
    I wonder if she's planned any promotion or a music video to push it further.

    That's quite the drop from the midweek, isn't it? Still, she's still building on streaming, so hopefully there's momentum there.

    I'll be interested to see the total number of streams. Looking at the daily Spotify figures, I think she's doubled them. And is still building. Obviously sales are declining, but I think she may not have peaked overall yet.

    #19 is actually brilliant in the current climate and considering no proper promo. This is the first single she's released that is transcending..Million Reasons did some ground work
