Only 3-4 month in since the release of Britney's seventh album Femme Fatale and Lady Gaga's second Born This Way, both ladies are already prepped to release their fourth singles soon.
For Gaga, it's "Yoü and I" the enthralling ode to soulful '70s rock. To Born This Way what "Speechless" was to The Fame Monster and what "Brown Eyes" was to The Fame. Quite interesting that she's opted for something a little different in comparison to previous singles as prior to this her slowest single was probably "Paparazzi" and even that had a distinctive dance-pop edge to it.
Similarly, Britney's (although only half-confirmed) choice is a little different too. It's the churning, dirty-themed, electro-R&B of "Inside Out," noticeably a slower tempo than anything she's released since "Everytime" in 2004.
