The first taste of Lady Gaga's Artpop album, "Applause" was just released via iHeartRadio as a free audio stream.

The song is an up-tempo track that could be part of a workout mix. It's hard to tell whether this will really take off as a hit song, because the hook "I live for the applause-plause" is possibly the most self-centered ego-maniacal chorus in the history of pop music and listeners who aren't devoted Lady Gaga fans are likely to be annoyed by the in-your-face aggressive tone. It isn't as fun and care-free as Lady Gaga's earlier work, but she does show off some impressive vocal chops.
