Both Gaga and producer Mark Ronson have teased her fifth album, though she has yet to debut new music or any hints on how she'll follow up the ambitious 2013 LP Artpop. In between solo albums, she teamed up with crooner Tony Bennett for an album of duets and standards titled Cheek to Cheek, which won the pair a Grammy award for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album in 2015. She recently paid tribute to Bennett for his 90th birthday celebration alongside Aretha Franklin, Billy Joel, Elton John and Stevie Wonder.
