Ariana Grande Says It Was Fun Returning To 'Straight Pop' For 'Rain On Me'

Ariana Grande opens up about singing on “Rain On Me“!

The 25-year-old “Dangerous Woman” singer says she had fun returning to a really poppy sound for the Chromatica track with Lady Gaga.

“It feels so fun to be a part of something so upbeat and like straight pop again, because I do feel like it’s been a minute since I’ve done something that poppy really,” Ariana told Apple Music. “And that’s funny because I am a pop person, but it’s just, everyone knows that my heart is kind of rooted in the R&B influence music that I make, and that’s where my heart is, but it just felt so good and fun and happy to dip a toe into her world a little bit, and to try this on for size, it was so nice.”

“It’s like, you would tell your story, and you make your music and you do your thing, and then when an artist like Lady Gaga, who has such magnificent point of view, and such an articulate message to send, you kind of are completely giving yourself over to her, and being like, ‘I’m so down to just walk in, help you tell your story, and also express some of mine through your thing. Thank you for having me. Here we are, we can both relate on this topic,’” she continued. “And she made me feel so comfortable. And so her as an artist, but also comfortable stepping out of my me stuff. You know, the video is so Gaga and so fun. I had so much fun. I was like, ‘I’ve never dressed like this in my life. I’m just having the best time.’”
