The Mystery of Cher's Duet With Lady Gaga

The Mystery of Cher's Duet With Lady Gaga

Cher is a really fun celebrity to follow on Twitter and in her career in general. She’s open, frank, and too talented to try to summarize in one article. There is one thing that she has been avoiding lately on Twitter, and that’s when her duet with Lady Gaga, tentatively titled “The Greatest Thing,” will be released.
 
Here’s the story. Cher announced in the summer of 2011 that she and Lady Gaga has recorded a duet that would be released in September 2011. The single would be off her upcoming album that she has described as “way dance” on her Twitter account, @Cher.  However, September came and went, and fans were still eagerly awaiting the song’s release. At the cusp of 2012, fans are still waiting. It’s unclear what the delay is, but it just may have to do with the album itself being pushed back from a late 2011 to an early 2012 release.
 
As the Times of India reported, Lady Gaga herself has called the song “beautiful” and “massive,” and she gushed over how she was glad that she had inadvertently saved the tune for the great Cher. She stated that Cher heard the song, loved it, and wanted to do it as a duet. Lady Gaga excitedly agreed, very impressed at the idea of working with Cher.
 
According to PerezHilton.com, the producer of the track, Red One, had this to say about the duet of the divas, “I think it's timeless. The beautiful thing about this song is, it's very uplifting, very uplifting. It's emotional, but it has dance on it, and it has a dance vibe on it. It's just a timeless song. You can play it with the guitar, the piano, with whatever instrument you want. You can sing it a cappella, you know what I mean, it's that kind of song.” Red One went on to call the duet an “event” because of the singers involved.
 
When it will be released remains a mystery, but it is sure to be on Cher’s latest album, which is slated to be released in early 2012. If you can’t wait that long, Entertainment Weekly did showcase a leaked demo featuring only Lady Gaga’s vocals.
