Lady Gaga launches ‘Gaga Radio’ on Apple Music

Debut episode features an intimate chat with close friend and Chromatica producer BloodPop

The inspiration for Lady Gaga’s hyperactive No. 1 album Chromatica came from one magical place: the dance floor. Now, every Friday, August 7th on her brand new Gaga Radio show on Apple Music, she honors the larger-than-life genre of dance music by speaking with the DJs, divas, and producers who inspired her and who helped bring Chromatica to life. And each episode will include an exclusive DJ mix from one of Gaga’s guests. It’s a celebration of dance music when we need it most.

“The last few weeks I’ve been figuring out different ways at home that I can be of service to what I would call the singular global community, one that I believe to be kind in nature, one that I believe to be very special to my heart and I believe to the hearts of many,” Gaga shares. “And so I’ve been thinking of all the ways that I can be someone that contributes to the society and the world. I’m super thrilled, excited to have this show and this opportunity to play an incredible mix of music every week…”

On the first episode airing this Friday, August 7th, Gaga catches up with friend and Chromatica executive producer, BloodPop. The two talk about the making of the album and the challenges that came along with it including depression and self doubt. Through it all, gratitude and friendship are what made Chromatica possible.

The pop star was set to support¬†Chromatica with The Chromatica Ball Tour, but has postponed dates to 2021 due to COVID-19. The highly-anticipated shows kick off a year later than expected on July 25, 2021 in Paris. It moves London on July 30th. Four dates are scheduled for North American audiences starting August 7th at Boston’s Fenway Park; August 16th in Toronto; August 19th in East Rutherford, NJ; and closes August 27th at Chicago’s Wrigley Field. The tour is presented by Live Nation.
