According to data from streaming charts, Gaga’s collaboration with Grande shot to the top spot on its first full day of availability. This gives the song a major chance to debut at the peak position in multiple countries, including the United States.
The song’s music video also became a trending topic on YouTube. A lot of fans felt particularly excited at Grande, who dances a lot in the clip.
The release of “Rain On Me” directly precedes the highly-anticipated debut of “Chromatica.” The record will serve as Gaga’s first dance-pop album since 2013’s “Artpop.”
The new Gaga album also has two other collaborations in the tracklist. The American pop star recorded “Sour Candy” with South Korean girl group Blackpink. She also collaborated with English music legend Elton John on the song “Sine from Above.”
“Chromatica” will be available worldwide on Friday, May 29. Meanwhile, Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande fans can listen to “Rain on Me” on Spotify and Apple Music.
