Lady Gaga Teams Up With Ariana Grande for New Song “Rain On Me”
- American singer-songwriters Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande teamed up for a new song “Rain On Me”. Produced by BloodPop, Tchami and BURNS.
The song is the second single off of Lady Gaga's upcoming sixth studio album “Chromatica”, following "Stupid Love".
Lady Gaga said of the song, “I was sitting at the console and I said to her, “Everything that you care about while you sing, I want you to forget it and just sing. And by the way, while you’re doing that, I’m going to dance in front of you,” because we had this huge, big window. And she was like, “Oh my God, I can’t! I don’t know…” And then she started to do things with her voice that were different. It was the joy of two artists going, “I see you.” Humans do this! We all do things to make ourselves feel safe, and I always challenge artists when I work with them—I go, “Make it super fucking unsafe and then do it again.”
Ariana Grande tweeted, “One time ….. i met a woman who knew pain the same way i did… who cried as much as i did, drank as much wine as i did, ate as much pasta as i did and who’s heart was bigger than her whole body. she immediately felt like a sister to me. she then held my hand and invited me into the beautiful world of chromatica and together, we got to express how beautiful and healing it feels to mothafuckinnnn cry ! i hope this makes u all feel as uplifted as it does for us both. i love u @ladygaga, u stunning superwoman!”
She said why the album was delayed in iterview with Zane Lowe Beats 1 Radio show , “It’s a super interesting time, it’s been a very difficult time for a lot of people and we stopped the drop of the record and everything that we were doing because I really wanted it to be more specific at one point. I wanted to do something to help the world that was very focused and working with the World Health Organization and Global Citizen. It was a way for me to talk about kindness and the things that I believe in, in a very focused way, as opposed to a more abstract way, which for me is what Chromatica is. It’s a beautiful abstraction of my perception of the world and I just wanted to wait a second and do something specific and then when it felt appropriate I was like, ‘OK, we can get abstract.’”
