Lady Gaga broke the internet when she finally drops her second single Rain On Me with Ariana Grande from her album Chromatica yesterday, and as promised by the mother monster, she reeled all of her fans, even more, when she releases the official music video of her new song a few hours after.
Ahead of its release, Gaga talked to Apple Music 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 Ariana Grande.
Gaga also shares the back story behind her latest single, “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.”
