Fader wonders if Lady Gaga can achieve chart success again



Fader Magazine is posing the question, "Can 'Stupid Love' reverse Lady Gaga’s fortunes?"

The music publication has closely followed Gaga's transition "from humble beginnings to glitzy, brightly-coloured stardom and back to rootsy authenticity", with 'A Star Is Born' putting the final nail in the coffin of Lady Gaga of the past - who made a name for herself as a gonzo trailblazer.

Now, with the release of “Stupid Love,” Gaga attempts to return to the commercial heights of her first 2 albums, treading back into the world of EDM pop. "By the sounds of it, she’s committing fully to this return to her early-2010s sound. Will everyone else?"

The magazine argues that the "age of the Gaga-style pop star is well and truly over." Rappers now run the charts, and only the pop stars matching the aesthetics of rap music dominate the charts, making pop more interesting and variegated.

The trailblazers of the past, like Katy Perry and Taylor Swift, now find difficulty replicating their runs at #1. And though these stars possibly don't want to regain chart supremacy, "in the world of mainstream pop, saturation equals victory, and, despite still making headlines, Gaga doesn’t control the conversation in the way she once did."
