Mega pop star, Lady Gaga, dropped her 4th studio album, ‘Joanne’, and she’s already making waves with her single, “Angel Down”. The touching single a tribute to Trayvon Martin, the17-year-old teen gunned down by a vigilante, George Zimmerman in 2012.
Trayvon’s death sparked the Black Lives Matter movement after Zimmerman was acquitted.
In an interview with Beats 1, Lady Gaga explains how the political climate has influenced her art and inspired her new song in tribute to Trayvon Martin titled, “Angel Down.”
“It’s a very extreme year and a very high, stressful time; people of all ages I think are feeling it. Especially with politics and with society – the way things have been moving, the chaos in America. This was a lot of my inspiration on the album,” says Gaga.
