Singer/songwriter Lady Gaga has dropped her highly-anticipated album named ‘Born This Way: The Tenth Anniversary’ on streaming services Apple Music and Spotify.
At the end of May, Lady Gaga celebrated the 10th anniversary of her second studio album ‘Born This Way’ on Twitter and said that the album was inspired by a gay black religious activist, Carl Bean who preached, sung, and wrote about being ‘Born This Way.’
On Friday night, Lady Gaga dropped the album and shared a tenth-anniversary edition of her poptastic classic on her social media platforms. The album features Lady Gaga’s original LP of Born This Way and six redesigned covers by artists representing and defending the LGBTQIA+ community.
Here’s what Lady Gaga tweeted:
“Born This Way The Tenth Anniversary is OUT NOW. Thank you to each of the incredible artists who reimagined #BornThisWay songs! And thank you Little Monsters for building our community of love, acceptance, and kindness for the last 10 years.”
When Born This Way was released in May 2011, it peaked at #1 on the Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 1.11 million in the United States. It was Gaga’s best album and became her 17th album to sell 1 million copies in its first week.
