Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande Share New Song ‘Rain On Me’

    Lady Gaga has released the latest single from her upcoming LP Chromatica featuring Ariana Grande called ‘Rain On Me’. In a tweet, Grande also announced the song’s music video will come out today at 10:00 am PST/ 1:00 pm EST.

    In an interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, Gaga and Grande talked about their collaboration. “Her and I connected right away and she was so wonderful,” Gaga said. Ariana added, “It feels so fun to be part of something so upbeat and straight pop again. It felt so good, and fun, and happy to dip a toe into her world a little bit… she made me feel so comfortable.”

    Gaga also talked about connecting with Grande on an emotional level:

    Being able to be with her and hold her and be like, “Anything that you feel chains you, any pop cultural construct that you feel you have to live up to, I’d you to please forget about it and be yourself.” That woman has been through some really tough, really hard life-testing stuff, undoubtedly. And her ability to move on. When she came into the studio, I was still crying and she was not. And she was like, “You’re going to be OK. Call me, here’s my number.” And she was so persistent. She would try over and over again to be friends with me. And I was too ashamed to hang out with her, because I didn’t want to project all of this negativity onto something that was healing and so beautiful. And eventually she called me on my shit. She was like, “You’re hiding.” And I was like, “I am hiding. I’m totally hiding.”

    Chromatica, which also features collaborations with Elton John and Blackpink, is due for release on May 29th via Interscope. The singer’s sixth LP was originally set for release on April 10th, but was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Back in February, Gaga unveiled the first single, ‘Stupid Love’.
