Background

Release and promotion

Gaga announced the song's release via social media on February 25, 2020. The announcement was accompanied with a photograph of a billboard in Los Angeles that had "an image of the song’s title splashed across an image of bright pink lips." The billboard also features stills from the music video embedded to the right of the center text, as well as a silhouette of characters in the video ingrained in the text. The word "Chromatica" is written twice on the billboard: one vertically adjacent to the music video stills, and again as the last line of the copyright message in the lower left corner. The prominence of this word led news outlets to speculate the title of Gaga's sixth studio album.

Lyrics

You're the one that I've been waiting for
Gotta quit this crying
Nobody's gonna heal me if I don't open the door
Kinda hard to believe (gotta have faith in me)

I freak out, freak out, freak out, freak out (look at me)
I get down, get down, get down, get down (look at me)
I freak out, I freak out, freak out, freak out
Look at me now

'Cause all I ever wanted was love
Hey yeah yeah (Ooh ooh)
Hey yeah yeah (Ooh ooh)
Hey yeah yeah
All I ever wanted was love
Hey yeah yeah (Ooh ooh)
Hey yeah yeah (Ooh ooh)
Hey yeah, hey yeah yeah (hey yeah, hey yeah)

I want your stupid love, love
I want your stupid love, love
(Oh...)

Now it's time to free me from the shame
I gotta find that peace, is it too late
Or could this love protect me from the pain?
I would battle for you (even if I break in two)

I freak out, freak out, freak out, freak out (look at me)
I get down, get down, get down, get down (look at me)
I freak out, I freak out, freak out, freak out
Look at me now

'Cause all I ever wanted was love
Hey yeah yeah (Ooh ooh)
Hey yeah yeah (Ooh ooh)
Hey yeah yeah
All I ever wanted was love
Hey yeah yeah (Ooh ooh)
Hey yeah yeah (Ooh ooh)
Hey yeah, hey yeah yeah (hey yeah, hey yeah)

I want your stupid love, love
I want your stupid love, love
(Oh...)

I don't need a reason (oh)
Not sorry, I want your stupid love
I don't need a reason (oh)
Not sorry, I want your stupid love
Hey yeah! hey yeah! oh!

I want your stupid love, love (oh, oh, woo)
We got a stupid love, love
(Oh)
I want your stupid love, love
(Oh)
I want your stupid love, love

Synopsis and fashion credits

At the beginning of the music video, the situation on Chromatica is described with the following text: „The world rots in conflict. Many tribes battle for dominance. While the Spiritual ones pray and sleep for peace, the Kindness Punks fight for Chromatica“. In the opening scene Freedom Fighters and Government Officials are seen fighting with each while Eco Warriors, Cyber Kids and Junkyard Scavengers are cheering them on. Kindness Punks, - Gaga as their leader, - runs towards the conflict episenter to eradicate discord among other tribes.

Kindness Punks start dancing and all the other tribes, one by one, unite with them. Finally, every single one of them is seen dancing simultaneously; and the peace is restored.
