Not long after Lady Gaga dropped her full length studio album, ‘Chromatica’, she and Ariana Grande are in line for their next win. What’s this all about? So, it turns out that they’re collaborative track, ‘Rain on Me’ just scored the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 Songs chart.  This marks Gaga’s fifth Hot 100 leader and Grande earns her fourth, among other honors for each star.

This tune arrived on May 22nd, just a couple days before the official album dropped. The video showcased the singers dancing amidst rain and daggers, yes you read that right. Chromatica is a whole new planet after all, and Lady Gaga is the ruler, so you can’t expect the landscape not to be bizarre.

Before the track dropped, both singers had a heartwarming exchange of tweets which involved a lot of gushing and a reassurances that they’d stand by each other, despite difficult times. Lady Gaga has mentioned before that she doesn’t gel well with other celebrities, but it looks like in the process of creating ‘Chromatica‘, she’s eased up a little. We can even go as far as saying that she’s opened up to the idea of creating close bonds with other artists in the industry.
