New Lady Gaga Song Leaks?
The web has been abuzz for the past few days over a new track purportedly by Lady Gaga called “Nothing On (But the Radio).” While it does sound like Gaga singing, she’s neither confirmed nor denied whether the track is hers. And if it is Gaga, it’s unclear whether the track is an older song (perhaps from those early demos she snapped up at an auction this week) or one bound for her 2011 album, Born This Way.
