The information comes from FNLeaksAndInfo, a Fortnite Twitter account that publishes leaks about the game, as the name suggests. The leak in question includes an emote called Jug Band, which allows four players to form a small band and play a song together, which sounds a lot like Lady Gaga’s famous song Poker Face. According to a Lady Gaga fansite, Lady Gaga Now, this feature will appear in the next patch and could be considered a cue for her upcoming Fortnite concert.

This news excited the fans, but it’s not surprising for the ones who followed the Epic v. Apple case documents. Lady Gaga’s name was mentioned in those documents alongside Ariana Grande and J. Balvin, who already made an appearance in Fortnite. It was also reported that Travis Scott earned $20 million from his one-off online concert.
Before the leak, Epic Games announced the LGBTQIA+ Rainbow Royale event, which starts on September 8th. According to the company, this event is meant to “celebrate love, understanding, acceptance, and all of the colors that make up the Fortnite community.” During this event, music from artists in the LGBTQIA+ community will be added to the game. It includes Lady Gaga, Janelle Monáe, Lil Nas X, Todrick Hall, King Princess, Kim Petras, and many other artists.
Lady Gaga isn’t the only rumored artist for Fortnite. There are also rumors that Billie Eilish may have a Fortnight concert soon, but it’s not confirmed yet.
