Lady Gaga has announced a special edition Born This Way The Tenth Anniversary album that will be released via Interscope on June 18. The album will feature the 14 original songs from the Born This Way album from 2011 in new packaging, along with six reimagined versions of songs from the album created by artists representing and advocating for the LGBTQIA+ community that will be revealed over the next few weeks.
In celebration of the announcement, the first reimagined track “Judas” by Bounce music icon Big Freedia is available now on all music platforms. Listen here. Pre-order the special edition Born This Way The Tenth Anniversary CD here.
“Judas was my favorite song when it came out originally, so I really wanted to cover it. I am beyond excited that it’s the first to drop from this project!” says Big Freedia. “To me, Judas is a love song about when someone does you dirty. I’ve sure had my experience with that. Who can’t relate?”
Known for her larger-than-life personality and as the ambassador of New Orleans Bounce music, Big Freedia is a nationally recognized hip-hop artist, performer, and TV personality. Also known as the Queen Diva, Big Freedia released two critically acclaimed EPs, 3rd Ward Bounce (2018) and Louder (2020). Big Freedia also appeared on Beyoncé’s Grammy-winning, “Formation” and on Drake’s “Nice For What,” where she added her distinctive voice and catchy lyrics to the two hit songs.
The Tenth Anniversary edition comes off the heels of Lady Gaga celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the original Born This Way album and its legacy in West Hollywood last week, where she received keys to the city and a proclamation naming May 23 as “Born This Way Day.” In addition, Lady Gaga has launched a very special Born This Way merchandise collection with brand new designs now available at shop.ladygaga.com.
