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
