Lady Gaga and Elton John deliver what might well be the gayest song of all time with Chromatica duet
Lady Gaga and Elton John delivered Friday (May 29) what Gagaologists and leading experts in gayology say could be the gayest song of all times.
When Gaga announced her sixth studio album, its name sounding more like a Mac software update than an album, her fans had no ideas what to expect.
But after dropping, with shimmery, heavily scented synth-pop notes and a constellation of stars collaborating, Chromatica is, simply put, Gaga’s gayest album to date, and her duet with John is leading the charge.
Fans whipped into unexpected frenzy by duet between the musical legends.
The pair have, at times, rapped about their tender and hushed friendship with one another. With Gaga, in the days trickling towards May 29, speaking of John as a “mentor”.
“Sine from Above”, the pair’s duet, is quietly tucked inside the album’s third acts and, from the looks of fan’s reactions, completely took them by surprise.
It’s a track about Gaga dreaming of dying and becoming one with music again in a surreal, electronica-drenched meditation on mortality.

Putting Elton John on a thumping dance track is perhaps the gayest thing Gaga has done in a career defined by doing one gay thing after another.

Lady Gaga and Elton John ‘Sine from Above’: What is it about?
The title is a play on words about how music was an escape for Gaga when she was in a place of hurt.
“S-I-N-E, because it’s a sound wave,” she explained to Apple Music.
“That sound, sine, from above is what healed me to be able to dance my way out of this album.
“That was later in the recording process that I actually was like: ‘And now let me pay tribute to the very thing that has revived me, and that is music’.”
It’s no wonder that Gaga roped the musical powerhouse John for the duet. “He’s been my mentor for a long time,” Gaga told Beats 1 radio host Zane Lowe.
“I mean, he’s always challenged me to keep my head above water and it’s something that I always appreciate is that he knows when I’m down.
“He just does. And he knows because I hide, because I never want anyone to see me when I’m like that.”

And Gaga is, after all, godmother of John and his husband David Furnish’s sons, Zachary and Elijah Furnish-John.
