By figuring out how pop hits work their magic, you’ll fall in love with songs you didn’t even know you liked.
Lady Gaga’s 6th album is a conceptual release about a future that is neither utopian nor dystopian.
Despite its sci-fi visuals, the album looks more to the past and present than the future. Chromatica gives us a world that sounds like 90s house music made for this summer’s cancelled Pride parties. It is lyrically somber, but musically upbeat, a productive tension that inspires hope.
Gaga shared that she made this album to help her and her "Little Monsters" dance through the pain. So, Switched On Pop called on listeners to dig up the most meaningful moments on the album and tour the world of Chromatica.
