Lady Gaga has debuted her anticipated new single Born This Way, described by Elton John as a gay anthem, on the internet.

In October last year, Elton John said that he had heard the song, commenting: “Born This Way, which is the title song, will completely get rid of Gloria Gaynor’s I Will Survive. This is the new I Will Survive. That was the gay anthem. This is the new gay anthem.”

Earlier this month, Gaga released the lyrics to the song with much fanfare.

While the gay community has celebrated the pro-gay lyrics, Hispanic and Asian groups have slammed Gaga’s use of the words “chola” and “orient” in the song as offensive.

Gaga, who has said that she is bisexual, told Rolling Stone magazine last year that her new album will be much more political than her previous work.

Listen to the song below.
