Lady Gaga has a part in the new Robert Rodriguez-directed movie, Machete Kills. With that role also comes a spot on the soundtrack, to which Gaga has selflessly handed over Artpop opener, Aura.
The film looks to be an over-the-top action romp with B-movie leanings, and Gaga's track scores the montage of clips (in the just released lyric video) perfectly. The song itself reminds me of Born This Way's Americano- which I liked- so it's unsurprising I enjoyed Aura from the first listen.
Being that the project looks like a whole heap of overblown zaniness, I wouldn't be holding my breath for any Oscar nods to materialise from Gaga's part as La Chameleón. But who cares, fun times look to be ahead- even if ironically so!
