'The Fame Monster' (Lady GaGa + Teddy Riley + Rodney Jerkins = Whaa?)

Lady GaGa is unleashing her Fame Monster on November 24. Basically, the same album all over again, but with eight (!) new tracks that she wrote "while traveling the world for two years."

Cutting to the quick, the producers she worked with include RedOne (on first single "Bad Romance"), Rodney Jerkins (!!), Teddy Riley (!!!), Ron Fair and Fernando Garibay.

It makes more sense after reading this bit from her statement about the upcoming not-so-rehash:
“I spent a lot of nights in Eastern Europe, and this album is a pop experimentation with industrial/Goth beats, ’90s dance melodies, an obsession with the lyrical genius of ’80s melancholic pop, and the runway."
Well, I for one hope the Teddy Riley song(s) sound just like Hi-Five's "I Like The Way (The Kissing Game)." That would be new jack swingin'!

But let's just hope the Rodney Jerkins stuff doesn't resemble anything like Janet Jackson's last album. Becauser that would be...monstrous.

    Crossing my fingers for sounding like Hi-Five too - can you imagine? It's time for a new jack swing revival. I'd even settle for some shades of "Freak Like Me" Adina Howard style. Gaga could do it.

    I kind of feel like Rodney Jerkins is on a roll right now--I like most of what he's produced recently (still waiting for that Three 6 Mafia/Kalenna song to take off--yes, Three 6 Mafia, though it's Kalenna [who I think may be a friend of Gaga?] who makes the song).

    I'm more pleased about the Fernando Garibay collaboration, though; I love "Quicksand" (and "No Way" is great, even if it is somewhat of a rehash of "Quicksand"), so I'm hoping future Garibay/Gaga stuff will be equally good.

    Eight new tracks on a rerelease--that should set the new standard.
