Listen to the new collaborative track from the pop megastars below.
Ahead of the release of her highly anticipated new album Chromatica next week, Lady Gaga has shared her new single 'Rain On Me', featuring Ariana Grande.
Speaking to Zane Lowe about the new collaboration, Gaga revealed that she and Grande "connected right away".
"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 like you to please forget about it and be yourself,'” Gaga continued. "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 was originally scheduled to be released April 10, was delayed due to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, and is now set to be released on Friday, May 29.
