MONSTER HIGH

LISTEN: Demo Of Lady Gaga’s “Burqa” From ARTPOP Leaks

While still months away from Lady Gaga’s ARTPOP, a good quality demo of the song “Burqa” has leaked on to the web. It gives monsters something to hold them over until the official first single “Applause” is released August 19, ahead of the November release of the album.

The final version of “Burqa” could change from this, but as Hypable notes, the production value does sound pretty close to a finished, mastered version.

The song seems like a perfect fit for Gaga’s upcoming film debut in Robert Rodriguez’s exploitation flick Machete Kills. The lyrics “I’m not a wandering slave I am a woman of choice” are tailor-made for the scene of her walking along the desert road in the trailer.

Full lyrics below:

I killed my poor, former friend, left her in the trunk on highway 10

Put the knife under the hood If you find it, send it straight to Hollywood
Hahahaha Hahahaha Hahahaha
Aura-a-a-a Aura-a-a-a
I’m not a wandering slave I am a woman of choice
My veil is protection for the gorgeousness of my face
You want to fancy me cause — woman to love But in the bedroom,
the size of them’s more than enough
Do you wanna see me naked, lover?
Do you wanna peak underneath the cover?
Do you wanna see the girl who lives behind the aura, behind the aura?
Do you wanna touch me, let’s make love Do you wanna be the peak underneath the cover?
Do you wanna see the girl who lives behind the aura
Behind the aura, Behind the aura, Behind the aura
Enigma popstar is fun
She wear burqa for fashion
It’s not a statement as much as just a move of passion I may not walk on your street,
or shoot a gun on your soil I hear you screaming

Because of pleasure and toil
Dance, Sex, ART POP, Dance, Sex, ART POP
Do you wanna see me naked, lover?
Do you wanna be peak underneath the cover?
Do you wanna see the girl who lives behind the aura, behind the aura?
Do you wanna touch me, let’s make love Do you wanna be the peak underneath the cover?
Do you wanna see the girl who lives behind the aura?
Behind the aura, Behind the aura, Behind the curtain, Behind the burqa,
ARTPOP.

    That song is AMAZING. It’s much better than anything the old hag has released.

    For a demo, this is awesome. I was a little wary during the first listen, but I can’t stop playing it. Can’t wait for more music. Thank the lord she’s back. Pop was starting to put me to sleep.

  • Kangol

    Oh my, she really wants to stir up some controversy/attention with that outfit doesn’t she?

    It almost takes away from the excellent song.

  • Brian

    She’s a woman of choice? I thought she was “born this way”.

    Make up your mind, Lady Gaga. You’re a mass of mixed messages. Maybe too many marketing strategies, sweetie.

    @Brian: Woman of choice is an old expression, nothing to do with being born gay or a bitter Madonna stan.

    Gaga’s back b*tches, ARTPOP :)
