Exploring the depths of their vulnerability, Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande wear their pain on their sleeves. Embracing the trauma both pop-stars vow to live through the tears.
“Rain On Me”, the second single off of Lady Gaga’s sixth studio album Chromatica, connects both artists with the shared experiences of living in agony. The spiritual, uplifting club-ready pop number unravels through layers of 90s house music with hints of Gaga’s new world of Chromatica.
Balancing the sounds of house and pop, the song comes to life courtesy of producers Bloodpop, Burns, and Tchami. Bridging the gap of two familiar genres that cross paths time and time again, “Rain On Me” utilizes the effects of uplifting-dance songs from the 1990s.
Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande want you to know that it’s okay to be vulnerable — in fact, celebrate the fact that you’re still alive even though the world is collapsing right before our eyes. “Rain On Me” is yet another pop song that relies on the techniques of nostalgic house elements that is modernized and revamped for a new era.
