Lady Gaga explores holy territory on “Judas,” the controversial second single from her forthcoming album Born This Way, due May 23. The RedOne-produced dance number, which features aggressive percussion and bombastic synths, touts religiously-minded lyrics and a dance floor-ready power chorus.
“I’m just a holy fool, oh baby he’s so cruel/ But I’m still in love with Judas, baby,” sings Mother Monster. “I wanna love you/ But something’s pulling me away from you/ Jesus is my virtue/ And Judas is the demon I cling to.”
Does Gaga have another hit on her hands? Listen below.
