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 Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album and solidified Lady Gaga’s stardom.
