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.

I saw a bunch of haters say that #PerfectIllusion would never make it to #1 on iTunes in the US and here we are. Do not doubt the queen.— Lady Gaga (@gagamonster96) September 9, 2016
Early Friday morning, the pop star tweeted her thanks to those who helped her put the new hit together.
