What began as a joke (we're assuming) has exploded across the Twitterverse thanks to Lady Gaga.

Gaga took to Twitter yesterday with the simple words: "I’m calling my next album ADELE". And now everyone's gone a bit crazy.

The tweet could have easily been a joke or simply a holler to a fellow awesome musician. The pair did hang out together a few year ago after all.

The 'Poker Face' singer has been teasing her new album, which she has referred to as LG6, throughout 2019.

In March, she said she was "pregnant" with the new project.

Then again, this is Lady Gaga and she likes to do her thang so maybe we should take this seriously.

There are certainly a number of Tweeters who are.
