It goes without saying that expectations for Lady Gaga's duet with Ariana Grande were high when 'Rain On Me' was first announced last month - but the pop superstars have successfully delivered one of 2020's most instantly gratifying collaborations.
Guess we might be investing in one of those Chromatica jockstraps, after all.
The second single to be taken from Gaga's upcoming Chromatica album - out next next Friday (29 May) is a euphoric electro-pop banger about dancing through the tears that takes cues from '90s house anthems.
It's clear 'Rain On Me' is no phoned-in guest spot, either: Gaga and Grande have been waxing lyrical about the experience of working with each other on social media and in interviews with Apple Music's Zane Lowe.
“[Ariana] and I connected right away and she was so wonderful", Gaga enthused while speaking to Lowe this week.
"And I think maybe she assumed that it’d be that she came in and I (would be) like, ‘Here, just sing this and thank you so much for your time.’ Right? But instead I asked her what she needed, how she wanted to do things."
Grande added: “Well, I find that that’s what I discovered with every single woman that I’ve met, who has had the BDE, the Big Diva Energy thing, thrown around and the horrible rumors started about them, and the narrative has been so weirdly skewed and whatever…
"I’ve found that everyone that I’ve met has this beautiful human bleeding heart. It’s just so refreshing."
