Fresh off the release of their highly anticipated collaboration ‘Rain On Me’, Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande have apparently taken up meteorology in their next joint venture as weather girls.
Billed as ‘The Chromatica Weather Girls’ in partnership with The Weather Channel, Gaga and Grande report from a recent downpour from their Los Angeles and Beverly Hills homes, respectively. The two hold umbrellas as “rain” – water from a hose – pours down on them.
“It was beautiful just yesterday but, oh wow, how things have changed,” Gaga says in her best newscaster voice. Watch it below:
“Today, it is pouring rain. We are soaking wet. And while some are complaining of the recent downpour, we would like to celebrate the rain.”
“Rain on me, tsunami! Water like misery but the people are still going,” Grande responded, referencing one of the song’s lyrics.
“So true, Ariana!” Gaga said.
“The world is rising up in a massive act of kindness to celebrate the rain the world so desperately needs to quench the thirst of the Earth.”
Rumours that Ariana had started dating real estate agent Dalton Gomez began swirling in late March, and she confirmed their relationship in the music video for her collab with Justin Bieber, "Stuck With U".
Well, now Dalton is helping out Ariana with promoting another new single — her new collab with Lady Gaga, and the absolute ultimate bop, "Rain on Me".
On Tuesday, Ariana and Gaga released a promo video for the single giving the world a weather report from their homes in Chromatica, where it is, in fact, raining.
Meteorologist Grande reported: "We are thirsty indeed, and what the locals are now saying globally is, 'Rain on me!' It'll be raining all summer, but we'll surely be dancing as it does."
"Rain on Me" could launch as Gaga's fifth No. 1 and Grande's fourth.
Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande's new single "Rain on Me" appears headed for a thunderous debut, possibly at No. 1, on next week's Billboard Hot 100 songs chart (dated June 6).
The duet was released to digital service providers for streaming and purchase at midnight ET Friday, May 22, while its official video premiered that afternoon. The song is the second single from Gaga's album Chromatica, which arrived today (May 29); first single "Stupid Love" debuted and peaked at No. 5 on the Hot 100 in March.
The Hot 100 blends all-genre U.S. streaming, radio airplay and digital sales data.
According to projections based on industry forecasts and building Nielsen Music/MRC Data figures, "Rain" could draw over 25 million U.S. streams and 8 million in radio airplay audience and sell over 50,000 in its first full tracking week.
Ariana Grande and Lady Gaga’s new collaboration 'Rain on Me' has broken record as it debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Gaga’s fifth and Grande’s fourth song to reach the chart’s top slot.
Ariana Grande becomes the first singer to debut four songs at No. 1, just two weeks after her and Justin Bieber's duet 'Stuck With U' debuted atop the publication’s weekly song ranking, while Lady Gaga has now attained No. 1 singles in three different decades, including two that have debuted at No 1.
As per reports, across its first week of release, 'Rain on Me' rose to the No. 1 position after tallying 31.4 million streams, commanding an audience of 11.1 million on radio, and moving 72,000 paid digital downloads. Following February’s 'Stupid Love,' the song is the second single from Gaga’s new album, Chromatica, which dropped Friday and is tracking to top the Billboard 200 albums chart next week.
Previously, Gaga won the No 1 spot with 'Just Dance' and 'Poker Face' — both from her 2008 debut album 'The Fame' as well as 'Born This Way'. It took nearly eight years for Gaga to achieve her next chart-topping single, when 'Shallow' — the Oscar-winning soundtrack tune from her hit film 'A Star Is Born' reached the summit one week after she performed the song alongside her costar and director Bradley Cooper at the 2019 Academy Awards. Grande’s past No. 1 hits include 2018’s 'Thank U, Next' 2019’s '7 Rings', and the aforementioned 'Stuck With U'.
One McDonald's drive-thru employee made the wait for a Big Mac pretty entertaining for some customers when he unleashed a performance of Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande's smash single.
Someone in line was blasting "Rain on Me" in their car speakers loud enough for the employee to hear ... and he took full advantage of the moment. In the video, the drive-thru employee gives customers everything from leg kicks to spins and even a hair flip.
We're told the employee is Gavyn Brewster from the UK -- who also performs as Diana D -- so if Lady Gaga and Ariana are looking for a back-up dancer ... look no further.
"Rain on Me" has been massively successful, making it's debut at #1 on The Billboard Hot 100 last week ... and the official music video already has close to 90 million views.
As for the McDonald's employee ... there's nothing like a captive audience.
