List of songs recorded by Lady Gaga
American singer and songwriter Lady Gaga has recorded material for five studio albums and three extended plays (EP), and has been featured on songs on other artists' respective albums. After being dropped from a contract with Def Jam Recordings, Gaga worked as a songwriter for Sony/ATV Music Publishing, where Akon helped her sign a joint deal with Interscope Records and his own label KonLive Distribution.
After signing with Interscope, Gaga began working on her debut album The Fame, which was released in 2008. It produced the global chart-topping singles "Just Dance" and "Poker Face". She collaborated with different producers, primarily RedOne, Fernando Garibay, Martin Kierszenbaum, and Rob Fusari. The album has influences of the 1980s pop music and discusses Gaga's love for fame while also dealing with subjects such as love, sexuality, money and drugs. Initially intended to be a re-release of her first album, an EP titled The Fame Monster (2009) included eight newly recorded tracks. Its tracks include "Speechless", written solely by Gaga, as well as "Alejandro" and "Bad Romance". The EP explores the darker side of fame.
Gaga's second full-length album, Born This Way, was released in 2011. She reunited with RedOne and Garibay, and sought new collaborators, including DJ Snake, DJ White Shadow, Jeppe Laursen, and Robert John "Mutt" Lange. The album's themes include sexuality, religion, freedom, feminism and individualism. Primarily influenced by synthpop and dance-pop, it incorporated musical genres which had not been previously explored by Gaga, such as electronic rock and techno. "Americano" and "Scheiße" included Spanish and German lyrics, respectively. She also appears as a featured artist alongside Justin Timberlake on The Lonely Island's "3-Way (The Golden Rule)", included on the album The Wack Album.
Gaga's third album Artpop, released in 2013, included the singles "Applause" and "Do What U Want". As executive producer, she enlisted longtime collaborators DJ White Shadow and RedOne, and for the first time Zedd and Madeon. Described as "a celebration and a poetic musical journey", the album revolves around her personal views of fame, love, sex, feminism, self-empowerment, overcoming addiction, and reactions to media scrutiny. In 2014, Gaga and Tony Bennett released a collaborative album titled Cheek to Cheek, which consists of jazz standards by composers George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Jerome Kern, and Irving Berlin. Her fifth studio album, Joanne, which had Mark Ronson as the executive producer, is a more personal album, with family influences. Its genres go through country, funk, pop, dance, rock, electronic music and folk. In addition to her studio work, Gaga has recorded songs for film soundtracks, including "Til It Happens to You" from The Hunting Ground and "Fashion" from Confessions of a Shopaholic.
