Lady Gaga Will Release ‘Applause’ Single and Video on Same Day


Lady Gaga dropped a ton of good news on her Twitter followers on Wednesday.

The singer, who is set to perform at the MTV Video Music Awards next month, revealed the release that her first single from ARTPOP, “Applause,” as well as its music video will be released on the same day: August 19.
