Lady Gaga and pop crooner Michael Bolton collaborated on "Murder My Heart," a track on Bolton's latest album, One World One Love. He said he was in the midst of writing the new album when his management told him that Gaga wanted to work with him! He said his management called him and said there is "a new artist who is a great songwriter... and she's a big fan of yours and would like to write with your for this album.' And I said, 'Okay.' I knew there was a reason that I was on the phone with them about it and it wasn't a little e-mail communication; they wanted to get me attention on this. They were really excited about this news that she wanted to work with me."
After hearing some MP3s of Gaga's songs, the Bolt wanted to work with her. Duh! Smart move, Michael! "I met her and we really hit it off," Bolton recalls. "She was singing some ideas she had. She knew my range, she knew my records, so she started singing in the range I had recorded... and that was great because I was looking at a real artist standing in front of me...who really could sing and really loved what she was doing."
Who else should Gaga collaborate with?
