The petition to #buyARTPOPoniTunes for a volume II has inspired such a tremendous warmth in my heart. Making this album was like heart surgery, I was desperate, in pain, and poured my heart into electronic music that slammed harder than any drug I could find.— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) April 13, 2021
I fell apart after I released this album. Thank you for celebrating something that once felt like destruction. We always believed it was ahead of its time. Years later turns out, sometimes, artists know. And so do little monsters. Paws up 🙌❤️❤️❤️— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) April 13, 2021
8 after its release, Gaga’s 2013 album ARTPOP has reached no. 3 on the iTunes album sales chart in the US. A fan petition asks for the “MANiCURE” singer to release B-sides from the LP that has gained heavy traction on social media over the past 2 week.
At the time of this writing, more than 39,000 signatures are calling for “Act II” to be released. Before the album’s release, Gaga hinted to a fan on Twitter that a followup to ARTPOP was already in the works. Producer DJ White Shadow has since publicly played reported instrumentals of Act II at several concerts. While opening for Gaga during her Joanne World Tour in 2017, he unveiled portions of a song called “Tea” to those in the audience.
