Lady Gaga’s Influence on the Music Industry is Nothing Less than Tremendous

Lady Gaga‘s discography encompasses all genres and styles. She’s shown her flexibility time and time again, from the gleaming electro-pop The Fame, The Fame Monster, Born This Way, and ArtPop to the stripped-down acoustics of Joanne. Add in Tony Bennett’s era of jazz classics and, of course, the Star Is Born soundtrack, and you’ve got one of the most diversified pop catalogs ever.

Lady Gaga’s debut studio album, The Fame, was released on August 19, 2008, by Interscope Records, and she burst onto the world with the track “Just Dance.” However, the follow-up hit “Poker Face” signaled a new superstar’s rise. The Fame Monster was supposed to be a reissue of Lady Gaga’s debut album. However, it dropped on November 18, 2009, containing eight new tracks as a standalone EP or extended play record. With blockbuster hits like “Bad Romance” and “Telephone,” The Fame Monster won a for Best Pop Vocal Album and solidified Lady Gaga’s stardom.

On May 23, 2011, Lady Gaga released her second studio album, Born This Way. “Born This Way,” “Judas,” “The Edge of Glory,” and “You and I” were among the album’s four singles to reach the top ten of the Hot 100 in the United States. The album made Gaga the first artist since The Beatles to win three consecutive nominations for Album of the Year, with over one million copies sold in its first week. Two years later, Lady Gaga’s third studio album, Artpop, was released. Her most controversial era created a brand new world, image, and sound for her. Despite receiving mixed reviews, the album managed to sell 2.3 million copies in its first year. Artpop charted in the top ten in over 20 countries with the lead track “Applause.”
After the release of Artpop, Lady Gaga began to expand on her musical abilities and rebrand herself once more. She collaborated with Tony Bennett, a traditional pop and jazz icon, on the album Cheek to Cheek in 2014. Gaga showcased her musical abilities further with the release of this album, which strayed from her usual radio pop successes and into the conventional pop and jazz genres.
Lady Gaga then released Joanne (Deluxe) in 2016, proving again that her talents are boundless. This pop-country album was unlike anything Gaga had done before, with acoustic instruments and her stunning vocals taking center stage. This album produced singles like “Perfect Illusion” and “Million Reasons,” which are still among her best songs.

In 2018, Lady Gaga starred alongside Bradley Cooper in the Award-winning film “A Star is Born.” It received positive reviews and earned Gaga her first Oscar for Best Original Song for her song “Shallow.”
Following the success of “A Star Is Born,” Lady Gaga went back to her roots, releasing the critically acclaimed and much anticipated Chromatica album in 2020. It reverted to Gaga’s dance-pop beginnings, with elements thrown in for good measure. Chromatica was a concept album that detailed her mental health difficulties while creating a spectacular sci-fi-inspired environment shown in the album cover, music videos, and promotional materials. The album has swiftly become a fan and critic favorite, with singles including “Rain on Me (with Ariana Grande)” and “Sour Candy (featuring BLACKPINK).”
In recent news, Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett collaborated again on the classic pop and jazz-inspired album Love For Sale (Deluxe) in 2021. She also recently acted as Patrizia Reggiani in the crime drama biopic “House of Gucci.”
Lady Gaga’s influence on the music industry and pop culture is unrivaled: she’s been able to create a global uproar with her outrageous performances while simultaneously captivating the hearts of millions with her soulful voice and remarkable acting talents. She is a formidable force, having left an unmistakable impression on the world over the previous decade of her career.
