The pair released their duet 'Rain on Me' on Friday (May 22).
Ariana Grande and Lady Gaga didn’t just totally connect musically when they hit the studio to record the just-released “Rain on Me” from Gaga’s upcoming Chromatica album. They also had a deep, immediate connection on a personal level.
Ari dove into the way they bonded in a series of tweets early Friday morning (May 22), just after the pop banger dropped, delving into the many ways they are similar, from their love of pasta and wine to their mutual need to just cry it out sometimes.
“One time ….. i met a woman who knew pain the same way i did… who cried as much as i did, drank as much wine as i did, ate as much pasta as i did and who’s heart was bigger than her whole body. she immediately felt like a sister to me,” Grande wrote about Gaga.
“She then held my hand and invited me into the beautiful world of chromatica and together, we got to express how beautiful and healing it feels to mothaf–kinnnn cry !” Ari added. “i hope this makes u all feel as uplifted as it does for us both. i love u @ladygaga, u stunning superwoman !”
Gaga wasn’t immune to the lovefest, either. She wrote, “One time I felt like I was crying so much it would never stop. Instead of fighting it, I thought bring it on, I can do hard things. @arianagrande I love you for your strength and friendship. Let’s show them what we’ve got.”
