Praise the Pop Gods: Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande's "Rain on Me" Is the Club Anthem of 2021
"Rain on Me", Lady Gaga's collaboration with Ariana Grande, is HERE, and the music video is everything we could dream of! Upbeat, a true club banger (not that anyone should be in clubs right now), and the cleansing anthem we need right now. The music video is giving us very strong sci-fi Step Up vibes, which we are totally into. And that ending where our two pop queens are smiling, happy as hell because they know this collaboration will bring their respective fans to tears? Be right back, we've got to watch it again.
The single is the second drop from Gaga's upcoming album, Chromatica, which is coming on May 29. In an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple's New Music Daily podcast, Gaga noted that "everything was just firing on all cylinders," when she made Chromatica and that it made her feel so happy because "I thought to myself, wow, even when you feel six feet under, you can still fire on all cylinders." By the sound of this bomb-ass collaboration, she wasn't wrong.
"Thank you for reminding me I'm strong, I'm super emotional and love you so very much, I cherish you @ArianaGrande and little monsters without you I don't know how I would survive," Lady Gaga wrote on Twitter. "I'd rather be dry, but at least I'm alive."
Ariana echoed the sentiment, sharing, "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."
