Released moments ago, Lady Gaga bring social issues back into her music with a vengeance!
The song "Til It Happens To You" is part of the soundtrack to the documentary film The Hunting Ground which focuses on the growing issue of young female college students being sexually assaulted every year on campuses all around the United States. The song was written with Grammy award winning songwriter Diane Warren. Although the lyrics are targeted at victims of sexual assault, Warren states that the song's lyrics "are applicable to anyone dealing with difficult times in their lives, whether it's depression, suicidal thoughts, bullying, or simply feeling alone". The video is POWERFUL! Similar to Christina Aguilera's "Beautiful" though much heavier, darker, and a little graphic (just to warn you) - but the video definitely sends the message of the song right home! The song is now available for purchase on Apple Music. A portion of the proceeds from the sales of the song will be donated to organizations helping survivors.
