Just last week, Lady Gaga teased her much awaited collab with Ariana Grande by putting out a picture of the cover art for their song, ‘Rain on Me’. And now, the tune has finally landed in our laps. This one’s going to feature in Lady Gaga’s upcoming album, ‘Chromatica’. It’s set to drop on May 29th.

The song showcases both Ariana Grande and Lady Gaga’s unmatched vocals, making it incredibly catchy. Between stunning falsettos and Gaga’s husky vocals, which we see in bouts, the song simply hooks you in from the very first notes. Not to mention the fantastic retro beats that create the foundation of this track.

Lady Gaga Gives us a Peek at the Process

Speaking about this collab with Zane Lowe, Lady Gaga explained, “I said to her, ‘OK, now everything that you care about while you sing, I want you to forget it and just sing, and by the way, while you’re doing that, I’m going to dance in front of you. And she was like, ‘Oh my God. Oh my God, I can’t, I can’t. I don’t know. Oh my God. OK, OK.’ And then I did it and she sang, and she started to do things with her voice that was different. And it was the joy of two artists going, ‘I see you.'”

Which is an interesting way of pulling something new out of a singer. Rather than falling back on familiar pop melodies. Gaga has also promised that the music video, which is yet to drop, will showcase a new side to Ariana Grande. She also opened up about their friendship and how it bloomed.

“She (Ariana) would try over and over again to be friends with me. And I was too ashamed to hang out with her because I didn’t want to project all of this negativity onto something that was healing and so beautiful. And eventually she called me on my s–t. She was, ‘You’re hiding.’ And I was … and then this friendship blossomed.” It’s simply lovely to witness artists confiding in each other and supporting each other. This just proves that it’s not always about the music, it’s also about their personal growth as people.

Anyway, enough about that, now it’s high time you listen to their track.

Ariana Grande Talks About Manchester Bombing Anniversary

Pop superstar Ariana Grande has reached out to her fans and followers to deliver a heartwarming message ahead of the anniversary of the devastating Manchester bombing. 

In what would go on to be one of the most shocking moments in music history, Ariana Grande was at the centre of a devastating bombing that took place at Manchester. Her show, part of the Dangerous Woman tour, was the site of a mass bombing back in 2017. The attack claimed the lives of 23 people (including the attacker), and went on to injure 139 people; half of them were children. 

Amid all the drama with Lana Del Rey, she proved she had bigger things to talk about. Ariana Grande took to her Instagram stories to share a heartwarming message. She writes: “I want to take a moment to acknowledge and send my love to everyone that is feeling the sadness and tremendous heaviness of the anniversary coming up this week.”

Ariana Grande has been open and vulnerably honest about the after effects of the attack, and being a part of such a moment in history. In one interview, close to the one-year anniversary marking the bombing, Ariana said: “Music is supposed to be the safest thing in the world. I think that’s why it’s still so heavy on my heart every single day. I wish there was more that I could fix. You think with time it’ll become easier to talk about. Or you’ll make peace with it. But every day I wait for that peace to come and it’s still very painful.”

Ariana Grande has also revealed that the attack left her vulnerable to depression and anxiety in the months to follow. 

May 22nd, 2020 will mark the two year anniversary of the Manchester bombing at the Ariana Grande Dangerous Woman World Tour.

Some news beats bubbling out on the East Coast. The Verzuz series on Instagram started by Swizz Beatz and Timbaland pits hitmakers against each other and sees them go tooth for tooth, artistically speaking. Recently Usher faced some Barbz wrath because of it. Now DMX and Eminem have been caught up in the storm.

DatPiff on Twitter: "DMX VS EMINEM. WHO'S WINNING?… "

Norega had earlier hinted Eminem might be keen on getting a rap battle on with his ex-collaborator DMX. He made an Instagram post and captioned it, “This moment is so Legend 3 minutes before this @therealswizzz CALLS X and says Eminem is down for that smoke.” He is seen in the picture with DMX as he says, “and X SAY HE CAN GET BUT I STILL WANT JAY HAHA SO CLASSIC BEHIND THE SCENES SHIT SORRY IF I WASNT POST TO SAY NOTHING but I had to DMX VS SLIM SHADY??? What y’all think??? I’m riding wit the DOG!!!”

Now a footage has been revealed of a phone call between DMX and Swizz Beatz that shows DMX on the phone.

DMX is heard saying “What about Em? Em don’t want it. Em don’t want it. I’d rather go for, you know, my arch-nemesis [Jay-Z]. He don’t gotta come outside, n***a, it’s in the house! You saying he don’t want to face me and play some records?” Swizz can be heard remarking that it’s a celebration, furthering X’s logic. “We celebrating music, and he got some hits too. He can play ‘Money Cash Hoes,’ I can play ‘Money Cash Hoes.’ Make it happen.”
