The two pop divas' long-awaited collaboration shows the power of surviving the storm.
Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande are on a mission to help you bring the club to your home.
Less than a month after linking up with Justin Bieber for quarantine love song "Stuck With U," Grande makes another appearance on "Rain on Me," the latest single from Lady Gaga's upcoming sixth album, Chromatica. Driven by a four-on-the-floor shuffle that harks back to 2000s bloghouse, "Rain on Me" is a party anthem perfectly optimized for sweaty clubs and drag routines the moment we're all allowed to share the dance floor again. As Gaga and Grande's voices share the spotlight harmoniously, the song feels like shared memories of nights out with friends and a glimmer of hope that those nights might return soon.
Though the track's melody is bright and upbeat, its lyrics are decidedly darker—especially considering both singers have been open about their experiences with PTSD. "I never asked for the rainfall / At least I showed up, you showed me nothing at all," she sings, having noted that the rain here is a metaphor for tears. "I'd rather be dry, but at least I'm alive," she hollers during the chorus with an air of perseverance. Grande chimes in: "Livin' in a world where no one's innocent / Oh, but at least we try." The line carries a heavier weight when you realize that the release of "Rain On Me" coincides with the anniversary of the bombing that killed 22 people at Grande's concert in Manchester, England, in 2017. Perhaps the date is a mere coincidence, but regardless, "Rain on Me" preaches the power of dancing it out and healing through the shared experience of music. There's nothing more freeing than surviving the storm.

You may have read the saga of Pearl the baby mermaid when Elizabeth Faidley recounted the events on Facebook in December of 2019.
Though the story takes place from between 2015 and 2016, Faidley is in the habit of recounting the bizarre events involved each year as Christmas approaches, and her latest retelling brought Pearl to the world's attention and seared her image into my brain.
On his 34th birthday, we pay tribute to the Canadian Chameleon.
Aubrey Drake Graham was born on October 24, 1986.
He found fame at a young age as one of the stars of the hit Canadian teen drama Degrassi. After his tenure playing Jimmy Brooks, he would transition from the screen to the booth, pursuing a full-time career as a musician.
Drake released a few mixtapes that were received well by fans and blogs, but it was the mixtape "So Far Gone" in February 2009 that would change his life and the course of music forever.
Since then, Drake would continue to shatter Billboard records, helping establish a sound that has since become the standard in Hip-Hop and has even transcended the genre itself. The keys to Drake's success are his talent, relentless work ethic, and his versatility as an artist.
