Lady Gaga feat. Beyonce – Telephone

Telephone” is a song by American recording artist Lady Gaga from her second studio album The Fame Monster, featuring American R&B singer Beyoncé Knowles and is produced by Darkchild. Gaga originally wrote “Telephone” for Britney Spears, however plans did not go through, and Gaga recorded the song herself, with Beyoncé as the featured vocalist. The main inspiration behind the song was Gaga’s fear of suffocation. The lyrics portray the singer as preferring the dance floor, rather than answer her lover’s phone calls. Gaga explained that the telephone addressed in the lyrics of the song, is in reality a person telling her to continue working harder. Musically, the song consists of an expanded bridge, verse-rap and an epilogue where the line is disconnected. Knowles appears in the middle of the song with the verses being sung in a rapid-fire way, accompanied by double beats.

“Telephone” was appreciated by contemporary critics who frequently noted it as a stand-out track from The Fame Monster, with one critic comparing it to Gaga’s debut single “Just Dance”. Released as the second official single from the album, the song charted in a number of countries due to digital sales, following the album’s release, namely in United States, Australia, Canada, Ireland, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Sweden, Hungary and the United Kingdom. Gaga explained that the music video will be a continuation of the video for “Paparazzi”, and is also shot as a short film. She performed an acoustic rendition of “Telephone” mixed with “Dance In The Dark” at the 2010 BRIT Awards in memory of Alexander McQueen.
