“Alejandro” is a song by American recording artist Lady Gaga. It is the third single from her second studio album, The Fame Monster.
In January 2010, it was reported that Gaga was holding casting calls for the music video of “Alejandro” and was eager for David Walliams to appear in the video alongside his wife Lara Stone. On March 23, 2010, Women’s Wear Daily reported that photographer Steven Klein will be directing the music video, which Gaga confirmed herself in an interview.
Co-written and produced by RedOne, it is composed as a mid-tempo Europop song with an uplifting melody, where Gaga sings in a non-English accent about bidding farewell to her lovers.
