Chromatica II Into 911 refers to a series of memes based on the reaction to the transition between the songs “Chromatica II” and “911” on the Lady Gaga album Chromatica. The transition also inspired a series of remix videos, timing the song transition to sync with violent or explosive scenes in film, television and other videos.
In May 2020, the Lady Gaga released the album Chromatica in the United States. The album features two tracks, “Chromatica II,” an instrumental interlude, and “911,” which transition into each other (songs below).
