Here's Why Lady Gaga's New 'Perfect Illusion' Will Get Your Attention

After nearly three years, Lady Gaga's new single has just dropped, and we want more.

After weeks of continuously building up the hype for her new single, "Perfect Illusion," Lady Gaga finally blessed our Fridays with her new tune debuting on BBC's Radio 1 Breakfast Show.

Not only that but the "Poker Face" singer announced a crazy exciting collaboration with Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine on her forthcoming new album. Basically, it's a huge week for little monsters.

Following approximately three years of near-silence in her solo career, Gaga made the comeback single to create a commentary on the world of social media — shedding light on navigating a world with so much ingenuity and fakeness. Sticking true to the lyrics, Gaga created the track without the "perfect illusion" of auto tune in her vocals — wanting to make sure the words were raw and genuine. The new track resembles a mix between a "Bad Romance"-esque dance beat with a nice touch of rock, and her little monsters are loving it.

Early Friday morning, the pop star tweeted her thanks to those who helped her put the new hit together.
