Lady Gaga’s fifth studio album has arrived, and with it comes the first episode of Mother Monster’s behind-the-scenes web series Making Joanne.
Clocking in at less than three minutes, this clip explores the song-writing process behind her pop-rock banger “AY-O.” We see guest appearances by Mark Ronson, BloodPop and Kevin Parker, as they work with the singer to put the song together. There’s also a funny exchange where Ronson tells Gaga that it needs to have the “danger” of his smash hit “Uptown Funk.”
“Yeah, I know it needs to be as good as fucking ‘Uptown Funk,’” she says before giving the British producer the finger and laughing. “‘You know, it needs to be like the biggest song of the year that I wrote.’ I cant… I’ve only been trying to do that for three months!”
