Lady Gaga has announced the title of her second "Artpop" single. The follow up to "Applause" will be "Venus," the Mother Monster revealed on Twitter today (Oct. 10).

The "Venus" reveal came in the form of a Twitter contest. Gaga challenged her Little Monsters to trend various song titles on the top of Twitter, dismissing each song title until the correct one reached the social media site's peak. "IM SORRY. #GYPSY is incorrect. PLEASE TRY AGAIN," she wrote. Before coming to the conclusion of "Venus," fans also guesses "MANiCURE" and "Donatella."

"TONIGHT WE ANNOUNCE THE BIRTH OF... 2ND SINGLE #VENUS," Gaga revealed. "Worldwide Release OCT. 27 2013. Descend your discoballs #TAKEMETOYOURPLANET #TAKEMETOYOURVENUS."

The introduction of "Venus" isn't the only "Artpop" news Gaga announced on Twitter tonight. She also revealed that the first 500,000 copies of "Artpop" would have special covers from artist Jeff Koons.

"FUN FACT: The first 500,000 physical copies of ARTPOP are crafted with LADY GAGA + ARTPOP cur out of hot pink metallic foil + silver foil," she wrote. "The foiling represents the true design of the cover as imagined by the artist Jeff Koons, who have collaged the typography himself. In other words, YALL BETTER GET ONE OF THOSE FIRST 500,000. They are once in a lifetime, one of a kind. #ARTPOP."

The "Venus" and album cover announcement comes in the wake of the full "Artpop" tracklist, revealed on Oct. 9, and the lyric video for album track and "Machete Kills" soundtrack song "Aura."

"Venus" will be released on Oct. 27, with "Artpop" to follow on Nov. 11.
