Within hours of its release, “Stupid Love,” Lady Gaga’s first single in years, generated major Top 40 and Adult Top 40 airplay, and just as quickly brought to mind the beat and energy of “You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)” –a throwback sound to late 70’s San Francisco disco and dance pioneer Sylvester.

“Stupid Love” is rhythm driven; the lyrics, while important, are incidental. Currently, it ranks #8 on Adult Top 40 and #13 on Top 40.

”Stupid Love” is from Gaga’s newest album, the futuristically titled “Chromatica,” meaning, (loosely), how music and color impact our experience of reality.
