“Telephone” (feat. Beyonce) (Stream)

    This track was originally written for Britney Spears, and if you pay attention it’s kind of obvious. Sure, it’s got Lady Gaga’s typically bombastic synths, but the vocal delivery and the content definitely favors the type of chirpy vapidity definitely favors Britney’s most recent fare. Essentially, at this still inaugural point in Gaga’s career, anything that doesn’t portray her as some kind of debauched slave to her own passions is a little bit unbecoming. Anyway, what we have is a duet between two of pop music’s most bankable talents; it makes you wonder if the union between Beyonce and Lady Gaga will be so smooth in the upcoming clip for Beyonce’s “Video Phone.”
