After debuting at #15 with “Perfect Illusion” , Lady Gaga releases the video to the well-received single. “Perfect Illusion” is a hard-hitting rock production that finds the pop singer crooning about fake love. “It wasn’t love, it wasn’t love / It was a perfect illusion (Perfect illusion) / Mistaken for love, it wasn’t love / It was a perfect illusion (Perfect illusion) / You were a perfect illusion,” Gaga sings over the Mark Ronson production. “[It’s about] modern ecstasy,” she explained in a recent interview. In the music video, Gaga takes us to the heart of the rock show. The video is an epic illusion itself!
While most media outlets don’t know what to think of Gaga’s return, I think it’s genius. Once again Mother Monster reinvents herself! Prior to “Perfect Illusion”, Gaga was starring on the fifth season of FOX’s American Horror Story and before that she was teamed up with Tony Bennett for their Jazz collaboration album Cheek To Cheek. Talk about talented! “Perfect Illusion” is the lead single off of Lady Gaga’s forthcoming album Joanne due October 21st. What do you think? Rock out with Gaga in “Perfect Illusion” below!
