Lady Gaga's New Single Hits the Web; What Critics Say
She drops her latest song, "Judas," a few days earlier than expected.
Lady Gaga has done it again. The singer, whose lyrics like to toe the controversy line, released "Judas," the latest track off of her new album Born This Way on Friday -- a few days earlier than its originally scheduled April 19 drop date. And critics are already weighing in.
"The RedOne-produced "Judas" carries echoes of her biggest hits, "Bad Romance" and "Poker Face," and finds Gaga pushing religious boundaries over a pummeling breakdown," says Billboard.
Rolling Stone also brings up the similarities in the song to Gaga's previous work. "Though "Judas" certainly has its own charms and at least three insanely catchy hooks, it leans hard on Gaga's signature moves and basically sounds like a cross between "Bad Romance" and "Poker Face."
