This Day In Pop: Lady Gaga Unleashes ‘Born This Way’ (May 23, 2011)

Recommended Posts

Mother Monster changes the face of pop music with her sophomore album.

Lady Gaga released Born This Way on May 23, 2011.

Back in late 2010, Lady Gaga told a crowd of screaming fans in Gdsank, Poland that her second studio album, Born This Way, would be “the greatest album of this decade.” Almost 10 years later, the declaration still rings true. The blockbuster LP changed up the game for Mother Monster, elevating her off kilter pop contributions to new degrees of weird cool. In the process, it turned off a few folks, but regardless of whether you championed her creativity or turned your nose at the spectacle, it was certainly an era worth watching. For BreatheHeavy’s latest installment of This Day In Pop, we’re revisiting Gaga’s mega-release as she works steadily on her sixth studio album.

Check out the full story on Exhale's Pop Anniversaries Calendar! 

Exhale, what's your favorite song off Born This Way?

Incredible album. It's hard to pick one favorite, as it changes quite often, but, IMO, this is the holy trinity: "Hair", "Bloody Mary" and "Heavy Metal Lover":whiteladydance: "Marry the Night" is amazing for blowing your brains out at max volume. :lizzie: And it's worth getting the deluxe just for "The Queen" alone. :typing: I even have the CD, which says a lot, because I usually don't buy CDs. :martini:


💖 you make me feel special 💖

Also, I feel like everyone hates this album cover so much and says that it makes no sense, but it's actually my favorite album cover of hers. :mimiclap:

Tbh this album has aged very well and Judas and Marry the Night are two of my fav of her videos

Hard to pick a fav song, but top 3 are Judas, Edge of Glory, and Heavy Metal Lover

This album marks the beginning of when I started to unstan GaGa. I didn’t like any of the songs, the videos were atrocious in my opinion (aside from marry the night), and don’t get me started on her selling the album for 99 cents (which was a clear attempt to break Britney’s oops opening week record). She was trying too hard with this album, then everything went downhill. In my opinion.

I remember when Hair was released as a promo single, I was listening to it for the first time and I thought I heard her say my name. :omg:

"And on Friday Roxxy. High school dance."

SCHEIBE!!! Such a banger, should have been a single! I don’t think I’d call it the best album of the decade, but it’s a great album. But can we get rid of Government Hooker, I hate that song lol. Americano is underrated. Heavy Metal Lover is amazing.

(ddd I consider it to be her third album and I think Gaga does too, but that's up for debate)

Anyway, I can't believe how old this album is now! I've been relistening to it a lot lately. The title track, The Edge of Glory, Government Hooker, Bloody Mary, Scheisse, Heavy Metal Lover.... BAWPS

Jordan, lemme ask you. What are your thoughts on GaGa selling BTW for 99 cents? I’m 99% sure it was an attempt to break Britney’s oops record (hence me really starting to unstan her).
