Lady Gaga: Brings ’70s Back as Secret Disco Hit Released on Same Day as “A Star is Born”


Lady Gaga? She can do anything.

Today “A Star is Born” is released to movie theaters. The soundtrack is number 2 this morning on iTunes. The single “Shallow” is number 1.

But what about her OTHER release today?

Two years ago Gaga recorded the 70s disco hit “I want Your Love” for Tom Ford, produced by Nile Rodgers and recorded with his original Chic.

Today the song is available at last on the new Chic album “It’s About Time.” And it’s about time! Gaga brings back disco on the same day she becomes a movie star. Can’t do better than that.

Lady G isn’t alone in today’s disco revival. Rod Stewart’s great new album “Blood Red Roses” has a great dance hit called “Give Me Love.”

Times are tough– so dance!
