Lady Gaga's release of Chromatica in May 2020 feels like a long time ago, during the darkest time of the pandemic.
, freed from lockdown on the wall you were climbing on, in a world where mask-ups and social distancing didn't exist, clubs still pump out beats instead of hand sanitizer How to escape to another planet.
Chromatica may have been a victim of timing, though. There was only so much you could do with an album designed just to dance to when you had no place to dance to.
