Listen to Gaga's 15 best unreleased tracks now and keep the love going for Gaga's 31st with these 30 fabulous flashback photos.
This pop-funk track is likely from a 2006 recording sessions for her Island Def Jam debut, which was canned when Gaga was dropped from the label. The song was recorded with producer Rob Fusari (Whitney Houston, Destiny's Child, Britney Spears), who later worked with Gaga to craft hits like "Paparazzi." The two had a bitter falling out after Gaga's debut The Fame was released.
