Rihanna Washington, Apr 16 (ANI): ‘Poker Face’ singer Lady Gaga has released ‘Judas’, the second single from her forthcoming album ‘Born This Way’, four days before the release date after it leaked online.

Gaga, 25, released the song to iTunes four days before the planned April 19 release date.

The video’s co-director and Gaga’s creative director, Laurieann Gibson, told MTV the video will be “groundbreaking”, though she also admitted the controversial subject matter nearly caused her to back out of the project.

In the clip, Gaga reportedly plays Mary Magdalene, and of the song itself, Rolling Stone, which got an early listen, gave its verdict.

“‘Judas’ is a classic Lady Gaga pop banger with three huge hooks, a thumping house music breakdown and a vocal part that borrows a bit of Rihanna’s distinctive cadence,” PopEater quoted the magazine as stating.

“Gaga has written about falling for the wrong guy before in ‘LoveGame’ and ‘Bad Romance’, but this time around she’s a bit less dark and dramatic,” it added. (ANI)
