Time waits to no one. Need proof? Lady Gaga’s Born This Way is now ten years old.
To celebrate the milestone anniversary, Mother Monster shares a tenth anniversary edition of her poptastic classic.
The special version dropped at the stroke of midnight and contains Gaga’s original LP of Born This Way, plus six reimagined covers record by artists representing and advocating for the LGBTQIA+ community.
Until now, we knew just four of the six cover stars: Big Freedia (on “Judas”), Orville Peck (“Born This Way The Country Road Version),” Kylie Minogue (“Marry the Night”) and Years & Years (“The Edge of Glory”). With the release, the final two mystery artists are revealed: The Highwomen, Brittney Spencer and Madeleine Edwards on “Highway Unicorn (Road To Love)” and Ben Platt on “Yoü and I.”
Following its original release back in May 2011, Born This Way blasted to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with a whopping 1.11 million first-week sales in the U.S. It was Gaga’s first No. 1 album, and, at the time, just the 17th album to sell a million in its first seven days.
