Two pop queens finally crossed paths in the long-awaited "Rain on Me", which fell on Friday (May 22).
"I said to her, 'Okay, now everything you like while singing, I want you to forget and sing'," Gaga recently told Zane Lowe about the collaboration on Apple Music. "& # 39; By the way, while you're doing this, I'm going to dance in front of you. And she was like" Oh my God. Oh my God, I can't, I can't. I don't know. Oh my God. OK, OK. And then I did that and she sang, and she started doing things with her voice that were different. And it was the joy of two artists saying & # 39; I see you & # 39 ;.
Gaga also noted that fans will see Grande doing things he had never done before in the music video, which form a friendship between the stars. "When she came into the studio, I was still crying and she wasn't. And she said, 'You'll be fine. Call me; here's my number'," says Gaga. "And she was so persistent. She tried repeatedly to be friends with me. And I was ashamed to go out with her because I didn't want to project all this negativity into something healing and beautiful. And eventually, she called me on my phone. She said: & # 39; You are hiding & # 39 ;. And I was … and then that friendship blossomed. "
"Rain on Me" will be featured on Gaga's next album, Chromatica, on May 29. Listen to Gaga / Grande's collaboration below.
