Only 10 years after its release, Lady Gaga’s Born This Way is getting a special anniversary re-release, which will include six covers of the album’s songs by other artists. So far, Big Freedia released her bouncy take on “Judas” and Orville Peck gave us his retro-country twang on the title track from the June 18 project.
On the latest episode of the Billboard Pop Shop Podcast (listen below), we talk about the 10th-anniversary reissue and what other modern albums — from the last 10 to 20 years — could warrant a similar tribute. We’ve seen Elton John, Fleetwood Mac, Michael Jackson and Carole King go a similar route before with their legendary albums, but what modern-day classics deserve the same?
Listen to the full episode below for our discussion:
Also, on the show, we talk about Dua Lipa’s urban-cowgirl “Love Again” video and Billie Eilish’s brand-new song “Lost Cause” and its PJ party music video. We also have chart news about Taylor Swift’s Evermore jumping back to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and BTS holding strong atop the Billboard Hot 100 with “Butter.”
