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.

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.

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

indeed

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

two weeks pass...

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

Big VMAs for her

Her performance was great too.

This may be my favorite Lady Gaga video ever. It's stunning!

Yes he does! I've watched it like 10 times now. I'm curious about The Color of Pomegranates now, which I hadn't even heard of until now.

finally trying this album on at full length, not too much is grabbing me so far but "stupid love" sounds even better in context. also gives me this powerful Max Tundra deja vu around the glitchy edges - she should hire him for some remixes, he deserves the paycheck.

Her best album since BTW.

Somewhat incredibly, “Rain on Me” is the first all-woman collab to win a Grammy for best pop duo/group performance.
