From Bowie to Britney to the Weeknd, here are 10 collaborators we'd like to see in the liner notes to Gaga's next album.
Last week's announcement that Lady Gaga's "ARTPOP" album was finally arriving in November was coupled with the news that the long-awaited full-length would be paired with a corresponding app, and that a first single would be released by the end of August. Aside from that, however, Little Monsters have no idea what the follow-up to 2011's "Born This Way" will sound like, or who else has worked with the pop maven on her latest opus. "Born This Way" was many things for Gaga, but a hotbed of collaborations was not one of them. After previously singing alongside artists like Beyonce, Akon and Wale, Gaga stripped her last album of featured vocalists as well as the kind of flashy pop producers we've come to expect superstars to seek out.
"ARTPOP" may repeat that process, but if the album is rife with high-profile collaborations (which it very well may be), which singers, producers and songwriters would fans most like to hear enter Gaga's brave new world? While every diehard fan certainly has an opinion on the subject, check out Billboard.com's rundown of the 10 collaborators we'd love to see appear on "ARTPOP," from EDM maestros to country divas to a certain pop queen that Gaga has long been compared to.
