"Diamond Heart"

"A-Yo" is a song recorded by American singer Lady Gaga for her fifth studio album, Joanne (2016). It was released to digital outlets as the record's second promotional single on October 18, 2016 through Interscope Records. The single was written by Gaga, Hillary Lindsey, Mark Ronson and BloodPop, while production was handled by the singer and the latter two. A funky, "electro-tinged" and "rock-inspired" upbeat country pop track, "A-Yo" lyrically delves on "leaving our haters in the dust".

Music critics generally praised the single for being catchy, and called it a highlight from Joanne. In order to promote the track's release, Gaga performed it on several concert venues of her Dive Bar Tour and on television. Commercially, "A-Yo" peaked within the top 70 on the majority of the territories it charted, including number 66 on United States' Billboard Hot 100.
