Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande has announced their latest Chromatica single “Rain on Me” delayed May 29 release; its video will be released Friday,
Lady Gaga postponed the album due to the coronavirus pandemic, Target accidentally revealed the tracklist, and to add fuel to the fire, hackers leaked some of Gaga’s legal paperwork. We’d already waited years for a team-up between two of pop’s reigning queens anyway, and maybe we needed something to look forward to during *waves hands* all this.
Prior to its release, Gaga talked to Apple Music’s Zane Lowe about the behind of the scenes of the collaboration years in the making. “It was just awesome to watch her. You haven’t seen the video yet, but she was so open to trying things that she hasn’t done before,” she said of current chart-topper Grande. “It was this beautiful, I think very healing process for me, not necessarily having a female artist that mentored me as I came up.” On the song itself, Gaga added, “This is about an analog of tears being the rain. And you know what it’s also a metaphor for, is the amount of drinking that I was doing to numb myself. I’d rather be dry. I’d rather not be drinking, but I haven’t died yet. I’m still alive. Rain on me. Okay, I’m going to keep on drinking. This song has many layers.”
Following the song’s release, Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande tweeted the emotional backdrop of the song, including bonding over their shared passion for overindulging in all the wine and pasta.
One time I felt like I was crying so much it would never stop. Instead of fighting it, I thought bring it on, I can do hard things. @arianagrande I love you for your strength and friendship. Let’s show them what we’ve got. ?♀️ https://t.co/eX18JePJqg — Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) May 22, 2020.
Now when I cry instead of fighting it I say “I’m ready rain on me” @bloodpop thank u for encouraging me to keep going when I was sad. Turns out even if you don’t feel good enough you still can be. I heard my joy back when we wrote this song. It was there, I just needed to find it — Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) May 22, 2020.
