… water like misery ? #RainOnMe 5/22

A post shared by Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) on



‘Rain On Me’ is Ariana’s fourth song to debut at No.1 on the Billboard chart, which is more than any other artist in history (Mariah Carey, Drake and Justin Bieber each have three) – Ariana reached No.1 just a few weeks ago when she and Justin Bieber released ‘Stuck With U.”



‘Rain On Me’ becomes Lady Gaga’s fifth chart-topper, it’s the second time she’s debuted at No.1, she sets the record for ‘the longest span between number one debuts’ (it’s been exactly 9 years since ‘Born This Way’) and, she is now the third artist in history to reach number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in the last three decades (Gaga follows Mariah Carey and Beyoncé).


According to ABC News, It’s the first time that a song by multiple female solo artists has been replaced at number-one by another song by multiple female solo artists. “Rain on Me” replaces the remix of “Savage,” by rapper Megan Thee Stallion and Beyoncé at the pole position.  Of note: There have only been seven chart-toppers by multiple female solo women in the entire history of the Hot 100.”

And that’s not all – a week after dropping ‘Rain On Me,’ Gaga released another collaboration, ‘Sour Candy’ featuring BLACKPINK.  The audio video racked up over 21 million views within its first 24 hours, breaking the record for the ‘biggest debut for an all-female collaboration’ across YouTube.


A day following the release of ‘Sour Candy,’ BLACKPINK earned the ‘biggest debut for a song by a girl group in Spotify history.’  The song also reached No. 1 in 52 countries on iTunes.




Chromatica, which is now Gaga’s fourth No. 1 album in the UK, features ‘Stupid Love,’ ‘Rain On Me’ and ‘Sour Candy.’
