Lady Gaga To Perform At Grammys, May Drop “Heavy Metal Lover” As A Single

By: Becky Bain / January 27, 2012

According to a post over at Oh No They Didn’t (which sources a French music site), Lady Gaga will not only perform at the Grammys next month, but she’s set to drop yet another single from Born This Way — and, rejoice Little Monsters, because it’s fan favorite “Heavy Metal Lover”, which the pop star recently performed during her gig on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. But hold tight, there’s still reason to wonder.

Not only did we call the electro-sizzle of a dance tune one of the best non-singles of 2011 (guess we’ll have to update that status!), we thought it was one of the highlights of Gaga’s entire Born This Way era the moment we first heard it. Gaga reportedly chose the song because she ”wants to make fans dance and sweat all around the world.”

We’re on board. Besides “Scheiβe”, this is the next best choice for another single, as the rest of the tracks on Born This Way may just be a little too crazy to make an impact on its own. Can you say “I want your whiskey mouth all over my blonde south” on the radio, though?

Maybe not. In a new Billboard Q&A, an unnamed executive from Gaga’s label said he “is not aware of any current plans for another single from the album.” So the report of “Heavy Metal Lover”‘s release may not be iron-clad after all. For the moment, we’ll just have to look forward to Gaga’s Grammy performance.
