Lady GaGa Officially Drops 'ARTPOP' Lead Single, 'Applause'

A new sexy promotional pic of the shirtless Mother Monster is also unleashed at the same time.

Lady GaGa's highly-anticipated lead single off her new album "ARTPOP" has finally stormed the web, earlier than its August 19 release date. It did not take long for Little Monsters around the world to notice it as their mom herself announced it on Twitter. "DUE TO HACKERS AN ABUNDANCE OF LOW/HIGH QUALITY LEAKS...WE ISSUE THIS POP MUSIC EMERGENCY," she tweeted on Monday, August 12. "MONSTERS SPREAD THE WORD."

Debuted on Kiss 108 FM, the newest tune sounds massive with dance-heavy electronic vibe. "I live for the applause," sings GaGa repeatedly. Not long after the release, the singer received congratulatory messages from her Twitter followers. "I'm listening to you on Kiss 108 and I'm loving it!!!" one retweeted post read.

Besides the song, GaGa unveiled another promo photo which, of course, still has her shirtless. "HERE IS A PHOTO TO ACCOMPANY THIS EMERGENCY," she captioned the pic, which features her standing in front of a row of wigs, with her long hair covering her breasts.

At the same time, the Mother Monster also requested her devotees to upload their best Applause Cover selfie, and some of the pics were luckily chosen to get the retweet treatment. Ryan Seacrest was also up for the challenge. The TV and radio personality posted an Instagram photo of him and the singer in the makeup.

"One of us was born this way, one of us needed to be touched up," Seacrest wrote to caption the photo taken when GaGa paid a visit to his show to talk about her latest single.

"Applause" will be performed live for the first time at the MTV Video Music Awards on August 25.
