Lady Gaga singles chronology

"Million Reasons" is a song recorded by American singer Lady Gaga for her fifth studio album, Joanne (2016). Initially released as a promotional single, it was released to radio stations on November 8, 2016, as the album's second single. The track was written by Gaga, Hillary Lindsey and Mark Ronson, and produced by Ronson, Gaga and BloodPop. It grew organically from the conversations that Lindsey and Gaga were having one day, with the title phrase lifted from the singer's musings about the men in her life.

A pop song with country influences, backed by guitar and piano, "Million Reasons" lyrically delves on "heartbreak and hope" during a relationship, as well as Gaga's religious faith during the chorus, ultimately making it a positive message song. Critically appreciated for its simplistic production and lyrics, "Million Reasons" reached the top 10 of the charts in Hungary, Slovakia, Switzerland, and the United States as well as the top 20 in Belgium, Canada, Italy, and Scotland.

The music video was directed by Ruth Hogben and Andrea Gelardin, and it continues from where the video for previous single, "Perfect Illusion", had ended. It shows Gaga singing in a white studio, and also her in a desert breaking down and finally being rescued by her friends. In order to promote "Million Reasons", the singer performed it at multiple avenues, including the Dive Bar Tour (2016), on multiple television appearances, and also included it in her set list at the Super Bowl LI halftime show and the 2017 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. Cover versions of the song were recorded by singer Kelsea Ballerini, and by Grateful Dead's Bob Weir and Phish's Trey Anastasio.

Background and release

Following the release of lead single "Perfect Illusion" on September 9, 2016, Gaga announced the Dive Bar Tour, a promotional concert series where the singer performed at various dive bars in the United States.[1] However, the venues for the concert series remained undisclosed to have a more intimate approach.[2] The campaign was sponsored by Bud Light, and premiered on October 5, 2016. Simultaneously, a live broadcast of the event was streamed on Bud Light's official Facebook page.[3] On October 2, 2016, several publications claimed that during the first show of the tour, a new song titled "Million Reasons" would be performed, in addition to "Perfect Illusion".[4][5]

During the Dive Bar Tour, Gaga recalled that she and Lindsey were seated in couches and having a back-and-forth conversation with guitar and piano. The singer asked questions about the men in her life, including her father and boyfriends, wondering why they would give her million reasons to leave them, but all she wanted was to have one reason to stay.[6] Lindsey, who previously had experiences in writing country songs in Nashville, was identified by Interscope as a potential collaborator on Joanne.[7] The label's A&R Aaron Bay-Schuck, who had heard the initial Joanne material, introduced Gaga and Lindsey. They bonded over drinks and Gaga also played initial demos of some of the tracks she had written.[8] Lindsey remembered that Gaga's personal experiences and stories resulted in many ideas for songs. "Million Reasons" was similarly picked from their conversations, including the title phrase. It was a straightforward songwriting session according to Lindsey, with Gaga using an old school typewriter.[7]

"Million Reasons" was made available as a promotional digital download to those who pre-ordered Joanne through iTunes on October 6, 2016.[9] However, following the song's commercial surge when Gaga appeared on the Carpool Karaoke segment of The Late Late Show with James Corden, "Million Reasons" was selected as the second single from Joanne.[10] It was released to American contemporary hit radio stations on November 8, 2016.[11]

Recording and composition

Gaga co-wrote and co-produced "Million Reasons" alongside Mark Ronson, while musicians Hillary Lindsey and BloodPop provided additional songwriting and production, respectively. The track was recorded and mixed at Shangri-La and Gypsy Palace Studios in Malibu, California as well as Electric Lady Studios in New York by Joshua Blair, Joe Visciano and Brandon Bost. The mastering was performed at Sterling Sound Studios by Tom Coyne and Randy Merrill.[12] Instrumentation for the song included piano by Gaga, guitars by Lindsey and Ronson. BloodPop did the additional instrumentation including keyboards, rhythm track, string programming for GenPop.[12]

According to Emily Mackay of NME, "Million Reasons" serves as a "potent, sky-clutching reminder of Gaga's way with a bare-bone ballad".[13] Idolator's Patrick Bowman agreed and described it as a "country-tinged [...] quiet ballad" while Stephen L. Betts from Rolling Stone called it a pop song which had a country music appeal, similar to singer Beyoncé's "Daddy Lessons".[14][15] Michael Cragg from The Guardian found this reminiscent of Carrie Underwood's characteristic style, which he called country balladry.[16] Lyndsey Parker from Yahoo! Music joked that it was obviously written by country music artists.[17] In the composition, the singer's vocals are layered among "faintly strummed guitars" and varying degrees of percussion.[18] The singer spoke regarding the genre of the single:

"Million Reasons" is a country song mixed with funk and rock 'n' roll. You would never imagine it would sound that way... the feeling underneath the record is it's almost got like a little bit of a hip-hop feeling. But at the same time, it's not a hip-hop song. It's kind of like I just had no boundaries making music — and neither do any of the other people we were working with. It was kind of like what feels right, what hits the best, what’s going to get everybody in their stomach and their heart.[19]

"Million Reasons" is written in the key of C major with a tempo of approximately 64 beats per minute, and is accompanied by piano and guitar. Her vocals span from G3 to E5 in the song, which in common time, follows a progression of C–Am–F–G, with a chorus of F–C–Am–G.[20] During the song's chorus, Gaga croons "You're giving me a million reasons to let you go / You're giving me a million reasons to quit the show".[21] Its discussion of heartbreak and hope, as described by International Business Times's Nicholas Mojica, was guaranteed to "resonate with listeners" of the record.[22] Bustle's Amy Roberts theorized that like most of the songs from Joanne, "Million Reasons" had extra hidden depth in its lyrics and predicted it to be about Gaga's separated boyfriend Taylor Kinney. The phrase "quit the show" was described as a metaphor by Roberts about Gaga feeling dejected about her life, with the second verses confirming this. Both romantic heartbreak as catalyst and religious faith of the singer were represented as different sides of the lyrics. Roberts concluded by saying that "hough the song may seem extremely fraught with sadness, confusion and heartache, its main message appears to be a pretty positive one".[23]

Critical reception

Upon release, the song received generally positive reviews. Cady Lang, writing for Time appreciated the touching quality of the recording's nature, which she described as heartbreaking.[24] Craig Jenkins of Vulture compared its potential appeal to "Daddy Lessons" also and felt they both shared a "big left-field bid for country-radio airplay".[18] Mojica ranked "Million Reasons" at number six on his list of the best songs from Joanne; he acclaimed its lyrics and noted the contributions made by Lindsey.[22]

The staff at Idolator selected "Million Reasons" to review as part of their 'Rated & Reviewed' column series. Robbie Daw from the publication congratulated the singer for creating a "super-produced" country version of her 2011 single "You and I". Rachel Sonis agreed and claimed that it is simple and sweet, awarding it 8.5/10. However, both Carl Williott and Mike Wass were disappointed, with the latter claiming: "this era is shaping up to be even worse than I imagined." It ultimately received an average score of 6.1/10 from the writers.[25] Similarly, Bowman from the same website called it one of Joanne's "more forgettable tracks".[14] Although The Atlantic's Spencer Kornhaber found it to be a "sturdily crafted" single, he found Gaga to be neglectful of the song's details and claimed that American singer Taylor Swift could excel exceptionally better at the same craft.[26]

Billboard ranked "Million Reasons" at number 35 on their "100 Best Pop Songs of 2016" list. Rena Gross from the magazine said that "traffic-stopping vocal delivery perfectly encapsulates our longing for the impossible".[27] Gary Trust from the publication wrote an article titled "With 'Million Reasons,' Is Lady Gaga Bringing Back 'The Vocalist Era'?" where he interviewed radio programmers and theorized that the track "is reminding radio, and fans, of Gaga's talents, beyond her trademark quirky costumes and persona". The programmers also commented that the traditional nature of the track was also suited with current American radio.[28]

Chart performance

Given its original announcement as Joanne's first promotional single, "Million Reasons" entered several record charts. In the United States, it debuted at number 76 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming her 24th career entry and second from Joanne. It later peaked at number 57 on the Hot 100.[29] Its entry was accompanied by sales of 15,000 digital downloads, which allowed it to enter the Digital Songs component chart at number 38.[30] The song debuted at number 38 on the Mainstream Top 40 chart for the week ending December 13, 2016.[31] The same week, after Gaga's performance at the 2016 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, "Million Reasons" reached a new peak of number 52 on the Hot 100. The placement was aided by sales of 44,000 digital downloads (up 144%), which enabled it to jump from number 34 to number six on the Digital Songs, becoming her 16th top-10 song on the chart.[32] It has been streamed 24.4 million times in the country.[33]

Following Gaga's Super Bowl LI halftime show performance, "Million Reasons" re-entered the Hot 100 at number four, equaling the record for the highest re-entry in the chart's history. The placement was aided by the song reaching number one on the Digital Songs Chart with sales of 149,000 copies (up by 1,334%), 7.6 million US streams and 15 million in radio airplay. "Million Reasons" became Gaga's 14th top-10 single in the country, and is her first to achieve that since 2013 single "Applause". It was also her fifth number one on the Digital Songs chart, following "Born This Way", which held the top position in 2011.[34] "Million Reasons" debuted on the Radio Songs chart at number 36 with 32 million audience impressions,[35][36] and has reached a peak of number 24 on the chart.[37] It also achieved peaks of numbers 17 and 5 on the Mainstream Top 40 and Adult Top 40 charts respectively.[38][39] The top-ten placement in the Adult Top 40 chart was her first since "Applause" also reached the same peak in 2013.[28] Six months since its release, "Million Reasons" was certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) with scanned sales of 828,000 copies.[28][40]

The song debuted at number 48 in the United Kingdom and peaked at number 11 in Scotland, in charts compiled and published by the Official Charts Company.[41][42] Following Gaga's performance of the song in The X Factor, "Million Reasons" re-entered the UK Singles Chart at number 60, with sales of 10,396 copies.[43] It further climbed up the charts the next week, aided by the performance on Alan Carr and its music video. The track moved from number 60 to number 39, with sales of 15,943 units, reaching a new peak on the UK Singles Chart and becoming Gaga's 18th top 40 single.[44] In France, it debuted at number 107 according to the SNEP, and was the ninth highest entry for the week of October 8, 2016. The following week, it peaked at number 29 and became the chart's highest moving entry, jumping a total of 76 positions.[45] Elsewhere, it peaked at number 34 in Australia and number seven in Switzerland, becoming her highest peak in the latter since "Applause" in 2013. [46][47]

Background and synopsis

The music video for "Million Reasons" was directed by Ruth Hogben and Andrea Gelardin, who had also helmed the video for the previous single, "Perfect Illusion".[48] Gaga announced that the music video for "Million Reasons" would be a continuation of that for "Perfect Illusion". It was released on December 14, 2016, afternoon on MTV followed by a worldwide release to Vevo shortly afterwards. The singer also released a 16-second teaser showing her laying across the desert floor from the ending of "Perfect Illusion" during sunset, as black SUVs approach her from afar.[49] After that her crew comes out of the SUVs and takes her to a video shoot where she prepares to sing "Million Reasons". As she starts getting ready, the singer notices a small box with a bow atop it on her desk. The video then intercuts to a number of flashbacks—Gaga singing in a white studio while playing the guitar, getting rescued by her friends from the desert and Gaga breaking down in tears. Finally Gaga opens the box which reveals the inside content to be a rosary with a note saying "Love you, sis".[50]

Reception and analysis

Ian David Monroe from V found the video to be "in stark contrast" with that of the one for "Perfect Illusion", and noticed that it did not portray a "traditional love narrative", rather made the video about Gaga's own team. Monroe theorized that with the recent reveal by Gaga that she suffered from Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in an open letter, the continued theme between the videos made sense. He added: "As she described in the essay, Gaga was traumatized by the lack of care with which she was handled in her earlier career, forced to tour even though she was in pain, which is perhaps represented by the 'Perfect Illusion' video where she is literally thrown into a crowd. The video for 'Million Reasons', then, shows how her team—her family—picked her up again, and helped her heal in creating the new record."[48] Brian Joseph from Spin found the video's portrayal of Gaga as "emotionally transparent" and added that the video was in line with the "emotionally vulnerable themes running throughout [Joanne]".[51] Julianne Shepherd from Jezebel compared Gaga's looks in the video to that of singer Stevie Nicks, "with a filmic play on the rock-and-roll mythos, attaching imagery of everyday backstage tour preparation to a song of loneliness and isolation, life on the road forever breaking its practitioners."[52]

Evan Ross Katz from Mic described the video as a "highly spiritual journey" like the singer's previous endeavors.[53] Justin Harp from Digital Spy described the clip as "breathtaking" and "poignant", adding that it "highlights the theme of loss and ultimately redemption" as enamored in the song.[54] Bustle's Shannon Carlin felt that the "emotional" video "will make fans and non-fans look at her differently. She's no longer the outrageous pop star who shows up to award shows in a meat dress. She's now a woman who is finding herself through her music". Carlin compared the video to that of singer Christina Aguilera's 2002 single "Beautiful", which had similar emotional and empowerment visuals, and finally added: "Like Aguilera, Gaga is giving you a sense of who she is by stripping back all that pomp and circumstance of her early years and giving fans something raw. Both of these videos are bittersweet celebrations that show sometimes pain is necessary to push yourself further. That uncertainty is a powerful motivator, which will help you take a chance."[55]

Live performances

The song was performed live for the first time on the Dive Bar Tour, on October 5, 2016.[56] The performance occurred at a Nashville bar as planned for the tour. She was joined by songwriter Lindsey for the rendition, which was considered heartfelt by Brittany Spanos of Rolling Stone.[21] Additional songs sung included the album tracks "Sinner's Prayer" and "A-Yo".[21] The footage was later pieced together in a promotional video, where she can be seen playing the piano while singing the song's lyrics.[19] She performed "A-Yo" and "Million Reasons" on Saturday Night Live on October 22, 2016. A toned down performance for the latter had the singer sitting at the piano belting out the song, backed by vocals from co-writer Lindsey.[57] Paste's Chris White called Gaga an "incredible performer and vocalist" based on the performances, adding "Gaga understands the stagecraft of playing live music on [the SNL stage]".[58] An isolated mic feed from the performances was also highly praised for Gaga's vocal prowess.[59][60] Following week after the performance, Gaga headed over to Japan to promote Joanne.[61] She performed "Million Reasons" on SMAP×SMAP sitting inside a giant lotus flower while playing the piano.[62]

At the American Music Awards of 2016 she sang "Million Reasons" while playing a guitar, with the set resembling a camp ground.[63] It received unanimous praise with Hilton Dresden from Out calling it a "heart-wrenching" rendition,[64] while The Huffington Post's Cole Delbyck described it as "stirring" and "emotional".[65] Billboard listed it as the third best performance of the night calling it a "resounding performance".[66] A few days later Gaga visited the Ali Forney LGBT community centre and performed an acoustic version of "Million Reasons", seated atop a piano wearing a T-shirt that read "Be Brave". She started the performance by clarifying that she wanted to be present at the center and "to affect other people around the world, and to remind them that when they are kind, it not only makes the other person feel good, but it makes me feel good too".[67]

The next performance of the song happened at the 2016 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in Paris. Prior to the actual performance onstage, Gaga sang along backstage with some of the models from the show.[68] During the show, "Million Reasons" was performed at the "Mountain Romance" section. Gaga wore a black dress with fish-tail train, printed with red roses, high neck and long sleeves. According to Bethan Holt of The Daily Telegraph, the look was a contrast to the scantily dressed models who walked past her waving. Once the performance was finished, Gaga as helped off stage and paused to take off her high-heeled shoes before scuttling off down a side exit.[69] Cole Delbyck from The Huffington Post found that Gaga sounded "off" during the performance, and noted her "awkward" interaction with the models. He also opined that songs from Joanne were not the best set list for the Victoria's Secret show.[70] Gaga was also a surprise performer at the 2016 Airbnb Open Spotlight, where she performed the song with Lindsey.[71]

Gaga traveled to the United Kingdom, beginning her promotion of Joanne with a surprise intimate gig at London's Shepherd's Bush Westfield shopping center, performing "Million Reasons" on piano.[72][73] On December 4, 2016, she performed the song on the semi-final of the 13th season of The X Factor, at Fountain Studios in Wembley Park. She emerged from within the smoke and belted the track, later throwing her hat towards the audience and ripping off her leather jacket.[74] Two days later, she performed the track at the 2016 Royal Variety Performance, attended by Charles, Prince of Wales and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall as well as on Alan Carr's Happy Hour.[75][76]

On February 5, 2017, Gaga was the headliner of the Super Bowl LI halftime show and "Million Reasons" was part of the performance.[77] During her set, Gaga sat down at her piano inquiring about the audience and then started singing the track. At the end she stepped into the audience and ended the song by hugging a woman. Tracy Gilchrist from The Advocate commended Gaga and called the performance as dedication of a love song to the United States. She found that the lyrics catered to the country and the state it was following Donald Trump's presidential election.[78] During her set at the 2017 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, Gaga performed the Andrelli remix of "Million Reasons".[79]

Cover versions

Country singer Kelsea Ballerini recorded an unplugged version of "Million Reasons" and uploaded on her Instagram account with the caption, "Gaga over this new Gaga, and as always, bowing down to Hillary Lindsey writing the best songs".[15] Billboard theorized that it was recorded in Ballerini's dressing room.[80] Isis Briones from Vogue praised the cover saying that Ballerini "stripped the track all the way down with just a guitar in hand and delivered an incredibly moving performance in just a few seconds. Not only will you want to replay this clip, but her voice on the song will get you to see in a completely different light."[81] The Voice contestant Christian Cuevas performed a cover of the song during the eleventh season of the show. The performance was appreciated with the judges complimenting it for creating an "incredible moment" for the show. Gaga also tweeted her approval of Cuevas' singing prowess.[82]

A collaborative cover version of the track was performed by Grateful Dead's Bob Weir and Phish's Trey Anastasio during the Wanee Music Festival in Florida. The duo played it on acoustic guitar, while alternating the leading and harmony vocals among themselves. Ryan Reed from Rolling Stone described the cover version as a "satisfyingly earthier angle on Gaga's Joanne ballad".[83]
