Lady Gaga has just revealed the name of her highly-anticipated follow up album to her hugely successful 2011 album, “Born This Way.”The name of the new “project,” as Gaga calls it, is … drumroll please …
Gaga’s three prior albums have all sold at least 6 million copies apiece, so anything less will look like a decline in her pulling power.
Gaga will never forget the name of her latest album, as she recently had it tattooed on her arm. But Lady G wants you to make note of the proper spelling as well, tweeting, “make sure when writing about my new album/project ARTPOP that you capitalise the title, *its all in the details*”
The album doesn’t yet have a release date, but is expected to drop in late 2012 or early 2013, according to The Hollywood Reporter, who also surmise that the album name could be an acronym for “Artistic Revolution Through the Potential of Pop”—which is written on the singer’s Little Monsters website—or possibly a reference to pop artist Andy Warhol.
Whatever the real meaning behind the name and tattoo, the album has a lot to live up to after Gaga’s last album “Born This Way” sold 1.1 million copies in its first week alone and as of April 2012, sold nearly six million copies.
Gaga’s 2008 debut album “The Fame” and follow up album “The Fame Monster,” have sold 15 million albums worldwide each, according to concert promoter LiveNation, while her hit singles have combined sales of over 65 million worldwide.
Gaga is the only artist in the digital era to top the five million sales mark with her first two hits. We’ll see if ARTPOP will be born the same way.
