Lady Gaga’s hotly-anticipated single “Born This Way” will hit the airwaves for the first time on Friday.

One of the most highly-anticipated songs of the year is coming two days ahead of schedule, Gaga Tweeted early Monday. The single — the title track from Gaga’s forthcoming album — was originally slated to premiere during the singer’s performance at this Sunday’s 2011 Grammy Awards. But by popular demand, the award-winning singer has opted to debut the tune a little early, allowing the single to be played on radio during peak listening hours in the days before music’s biggest night.

Gaga dominated Twitter searches for several hours after she unveiled the lyrics to “Born This Way” on the popular social networking website last month.

Born This Way drops this May.
