Lady Gaga Drops Single 'Born This Way'

The time has come for Lady Gaga to resume control over your radio. Ms. Gaga dropped her brand new single "Born This Way" this morning, according to SPIN.

The song "Born This Way" is the first track to be released from her upcoming LP of the same title, which will be available for the world to hear on May 23 unless it leaks early. I'm almost certain any real fall-off from Lady Gaga would be impossible.

There has never been a catchier song about loving yourself and being happy with who you are. On "Born This Way," Gaga sings, "I'm beautiful in my way, 'cause God makes no mistakes / I'm on the right track, baby, I was born this way." If you're interested in checking out the full lyrics to get a better idea of what the song's all about, Rolling Stone's got the lyrics.

The track is fun and super energetic, and it's a great song for dancing and parties, so plan on hearing it basically everywhere you go (especially in shopping malls; it sounds like the type of song that will get huge rotation in retail locations).
