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 in the video, which you can see in full 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.”
‘Rain On Me’ is the second single from Lady Gaga’s forthcoming album Chromatica, which is due out this coming Friday, 29 May .She released lead single ‘Stupid Love’ earlier this year.
According to Lady Gaga, recording Chromatica, which Apple Music’s Zane Lowe recently called, “A reclaiming of the dancefloor”, was a deeply therapeutic experience for the artist. Emerging triumphantly on the other side of it, Gaga sounded optimistic and at peace with herself. But she also wants to share those affirming feelings with her fans.
“I made the choice not to just make the record for myself but to make it for the world”, she told Lowe, adding that, her destiny “is to give gifts to the world. I truly believe that’s what I’m meant to do.”
Chromatica is out on 29 May and can be pre-ordered here.
