When the first single off of an album is a classic Pop song, we kind of expect the trend to continue throughout the playlist. But Lady Gaga is all about creativity and novelty. “Million Reasons” is a solemn ballad from her upcoming album ‘Joanne’ and it is perfect.
“Million Reasons” has been written by Lady Gaga and Hillary Lindsey and the track is a sweet fusion of Country and Pop-rock music. The single ranks at number 7 on the album tracklist.
Listen to “Million Reasons” by Lady Gaga
“Million Reasons” single speaks about the struggle of relationships-the doubt of taking that one big step ahead. Take a note pad and write down the positives and negatives of him/her and if you really want to be with them just one plus point would be enough to convince you. That’s exactly what Lady Gaga sings here.
I’ve got a hundred million reasons to walk away
But baby, I just need one good one to stay
The phrase “I’ve got a hundred million reasons” repeats so often in the lyrics to this song and we believe it just works in this situation. It’s a hundred million reasons-the weight of that number needs to be emphasized, and she does with the lyrics. And the beauty of the punch-line is that it occurs just once in a verse-signifying the importance of that one reason to disregard all other 100,000,000 reasons.
The lead single of the album “Perfect Illusion” was an instant success and the song peaked at #15 on Billboard Hot 100. Hopefully this track can propel her more towards the top of the charts.
