The pop super stars have actually blessed fans with “Rain On Me,” the 2nd single from Gaga’s upcoming 6th studio album, Chromatica

The highly-anticipated track was met much appreciation from the Little Monsters and Arianators, who have actually long imagined the all-star collab. Ahead of its release, Gaga opened about the motivation for “Rain On Me” and the “healing process” she and Ariana experienced to make popular song magic. 

“It was this beautiful,” Gaga informed Zane Lowe of Apple Beats 1, “very healing process for me, too. Not necessarily having a female artist that mentored me as I came up, and 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.'”

“That woman has been through some really tough, really hard life testing stuff, undoubtedly,” Gaga included. “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 okay. Call me, here’s my number.'”

The “Bad Romance” songstress, 34, explained Ariana, 26, as “so persistent” in attempting to create a relationship. 

But as Gaga exposed in the interview, “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.”

Eventually, the 2 came together and taped “Rain On Me,” which Gaga stated has deep roots in her own battles. 

“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,” she shared. 

The stars likewise launched a matching video.

Listen to “Rain On Me” through the clip above, and prepare to head to the dance flooring—the one in your living-room, obviously.
