"Babylon" is a song by Lady Gaga from her sixth studio album, Chromatica. The track was written by Gaga, Michael Tucker and Matthew Burns, and produced by BloodPop® and Burns with additional production by Tchami.
On July 9, 2019, Haus Laboratories released their first commercial Our Haus, Your Rules which included an instrumental of "Babylon". On May 28, 2020, BloodPop® corrected a fan who thought that this version of "Babylon" was only produced by Tchami:
During HANA's Twitch livestream on May 28, 2020, BloodPop® confirmed that the Haus Labs version would be released. He confirmed it again to Entertainment Weekly on June 12, 2020 ("The Haus Labs mix of 'Babylon' will be released, so don't stress"). On August 6, 2020, fans discovered that using Shazam on the Haus Labs commercials would recognize it as "Babylon" (Early Version). That version was registered on BMI under the title "Babylon" (Original Haus Labs Version) on January 26, 2021.
|“||This is the dance celebration of the culmination of this album, but it's really the start that occurs after every finish. When we've completed a task or defeated a challenge, the end is not the end. This is a new journey, and in Chromatica I will dance my way through all the pain, and every transition I make is into a new me, which is consistently a miracle. I wow to always have something to celebrate. And frankly gossip is the hallmark of civilization. Two people can't talk behind each other's backs, you need at least three people. And something that used to haunt me — gossip — is now a silly construct I can dance through. Babble on. I'll be in Babylon. Or Chromatica.||”|
