Did ‘Born This Way’ Live up to the Hype?

The answer is NO!


Is this really the lead single for a new album and “anthem” of our generation?
This is what happens when you start believing your own hype. Though,I have to admit that the Fernando Garibay is a commendable effort, one has to wonder if the song justified the hype which preceded it.  The production is very similar to Madonna's classics ‘Express Yourself’ and ‘Vogue’. There are also some hints of Kylie Minogue a bit TLC’s ‘Waterfalls’ and P!NKS “God is a DJ”.  I was expecting a 'Bad Romance' part 2, but oh well....

Anyway, you can enjoy this song, while I am going to go listen to the original. 


The Staple Singers - Respect Yourself
