Lady Gaga’s ‘Poker Face’ reaches one billion views on YouTube

Lady GagaThe iconic “Poker Face” hit has reached a major milestone: its music video has reached one billion views on YouTube.

Lady Gaga’s now classic hit was released in 2008 and marked the second single from her debut album Fame. It followed the release of “Just Dance,” Gaga’s first-ever single that propelled the one-of-a-kind artist to stardom. At the time, Gaga made history with the popularity of “Poker Face,” becoming the fourth female artist in the past two decades to debut with back-to-back No. 1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. She also became the first artist with two singles to sell for over $7 million in downloads.

At Jeffrey Sanker’s 20th Annual White Party in 2009, Gaga told the crowd during a performance that the song was about being with a male partner while fantasizing about being with a woman. She also said rolling stone that the line “bluffin’ with my muffin” was taken from a song she never released, called “Blueberry Kisses”.

The song’s video featured some of Gaga’s most iconic looks, including the futuristic-looking electric blue latex catsuit and crystal goggles that also appear on the album cover for Fame. The video was filmed at a house in Malibu, with most of the scenes shot near the mansion’s pool. The opulent house is a star herself, having starred in a variety of TV shows and films over the decades, including Veronique March, Sense8, Terminator 2and CSI Miami.

A lot has changed since the world discovered “Poker Face”. Gaga has released five studio albums, with the 2020s Chromatic being his last. She also won an Oscar for Best Original Song with “Shallow” from A star is born in 2019 and also received a Best Actress nomination for the film.

Hear the best of Lady Gaga.
