Lady Gaga finally premieres the music video for ‘Stupid Love’ after teasing the track earlier week with a billboard featuring the single’s chaotic, weird-pop-adjacent design.
Lady Gaga worked on it alongside BloodPop, Tchami, and Max Martin. It’s her first time working with pop mastermind Martin, and in a new Beats 1 interview she said:
“I’ve never worked with him, I’ve always sort of gone, I write my own music, I produce myself, I don’t need to work with Max, right? And I decided to stop being asshole, meet him at least, you know? […]
“Basically, I sang over a track that BloodPop made, who were in the studio, we sent over what I sang to Max, Max picked some parts out, sent it back to me, and then I wrote lyrics and used some of the melody that he chose that he sent back to me and I kind of spliced it all together and then I went to his studio, and sat down at a piano and I played Stupid Love on a piano with chords.
“And I looked at him and I said, that’s what I’ve got for you, and to me, this song can only stand on it’s two feet, even with a great track, if you can play it on a piano and it still sounds like a hit. And he was-he was like, I love it, get in the booth. I warmed up my voice, got in the booth, I sang it, and what you’re hearing on “Stupid Love” is what we did that day.”
It comes with a music video that was shot entirely on an iPhone with a colorful cast of characters out in the middle of an alien world.
