Basically what happened. We did, and so did she.

A guy in the car next to me today was playing this song, and getting into it (hand movements, etc.). It seems to really have some heat, wonder how high it will debut on the chart.

could very well debut at #1, as numerous songs have this year. the more important question is whether it will show staying power beyond that, since some of the year-to-date's number-one debuts might not
i think the song is just okay so i am not the best judge of its commercial prospects. it is definitely better than "stupid love" tho
lmao at the misheard lyric, even after knowing that was incorrect i still couldn't figure out what the real lyric was until looking it up!!

I am sort of disappointed that after Joanne (which I really liked), Gaga seems to be sort of aesthetically retreating. But I’m not a Little Monster, maybe this move hits the sweet spot for her core fans.

any ariana song is gonna go no 1... she just did it last week. i think it's a good song personally and will have staying power at the top of the chart. it was a very well chosen feature by gaga.
i don't necessarily consider the song safe ... it does feel a bit fossilized w/ the drop and all but i think the time was right for a back to basics record for her after the artpop-joanne b2b. "shallow" + star is born made it cool to like her again, in that sense i think she's already accomplished the difficult part. following it up w/ a feel good party-ish kinda record that's like, "remember when we all loved me" w/ a few new twists makes a lot of sense to me. also think it's when her songwriting is at its best.

also think the video will carry it far

following it up w/ a feel good party-ish kinda record that's like, "remember when we all loved me" w/ a few new twists makes a lot of sense to me.I feel you on this. I guess I was hoping she’d “take it to another level,” but that’s probably an unreasonable thing to expect from any artist.

I like this! But I like her best when she's at her most conventional. I barely hear Grande.

This new song with Blackpink is great!

I thought the song with Elton John would be like an awful Cheek to Cheek-esque thing but boy was I wrong!

Elton's blown his voice, though.

Anonymous house music is a good look for Gaga

Elton singing on the One World stream a few weeks ago was hilariously awful

Rain on Me debuted at #1, week 2 dropped to #5, week 3 dropped to #10.

that's pretty good for a song launched to #1 based overwhelmingly on pent-up hype, a simultaneous track/video premiere, and a plainly charts-driven digital retail strategy. like, the trajectories of a couple others recently fitting that description:
1 - 12 - 15 - 16 - 17 - 22 - 25 (travis scott & kid cudi "the scotts")1 - 13 - 15 - 17 - 20 (ariana grande & justin bieber "stuck with you")
all are being buoyed somewhat by airplay gains, even those for which direct consumption (sales/streams) is running out of steam fast. they could all eventually find a real mass audience, but i wouldn't count on it. of the three, i'd say "rain on me" may be the likeliest to actually become a 'real' hit
