‘Rain On Me’: Lady Gaga & Ariana Grande Storm To #1 On Spotify & iTunes With Historic Numbers

Published: Saturday 23rd May 2020 by Sam

Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande are off to a thunderous start with new single ‘Rain On Me.’

Full story below…

The ‘Rain’ song and visual were both unleashed yesterday and are creating the perfect storm commercially.

As at writing, the dance jam sits atop of iTunes in over 50 countries – including the US, UK, Australia, Spain, Greece, Germany, and Canada.

While on Spotify, the industry’s leading streaming service, ‘Rain’ makes an almighty first day splash with 10.2 million streams globally – debuting at #1 on the worldwide and  US tallies.

The feat sees the song nab the biggest opening day for a release in 2020, while also standing as the largest premiere of an all-female collaboration on the platform. It’s notable for being Gaga’s biggest ever start on the service.

This all as the track’s Robert Rodriguez directed video rapidly draws near to the 20 million views mark within its first day on YouTube.

Suffice to say, ‘Rain On Me’ is off to an epic start!

    This (and the successes to come) just kind of seem inevitable, don’t you think?

  3. Clarks0o0ñ May 23, 2020

    Honey I’m seeing 6 million global streams on spotify
    2 million streams in the US

    So how did yall get that 10 million streams?

    • PinotNoir May 23, 2020

    I just love how this is only a big hit right now for Gaga because Arianas name and vocals is attached to it. This is what you do when you can’t snag a hit on your own anymore and need to solicit the help of one of the biggest pop stars with the largest fan base right now! It’s one reason I never cared for either artist! There was growth from Gaga doing A Star Is Born but then she returns to this generic pop crap and slaps Ariana onto it because she cares more about hits!

    • Jeans May 23, 2020

      I totally agree. Ariana just had a #1 this week with Justin. Now she getting another #1 in the same month? Something is up. Her team and Gaga team up to something. The song isn’t even that great. Top10 worthy maybe but not #1. I hate streaming laws. Clearly Gaga is still chasing hits

      Bip bip, paging Katy Perrier’s team

    • Meme May 24, 2020

      Sweet heart Gaga was literally just #1 a year ago with the song from her blockbuster movie a star is born. Run along now.

  7. Stop+Justina May 23, 2020

    Scooter is pulling wonders. Ariana team gonna make sure this is a hit

  8. Fancy BISH May 23, 2020

    Gaga has been LIVING in a Pop world where the other girls don’t match her ambition since the beginning of her career….by that I mean, Gaga never came to play it safe and always takes the hardest route…Gaga GOES for it, as always, so I would love to hear a solo version…asking for a friend 😂 It’s not enough Gaga? Just call it the Gaga Rap version or something and I’m good lol..I’ve been listening to Stupid Love a lot because it’s just Gaga and her fearless ambition chile….and her superior voice, no shade lol…who makes a song called Stupid Love? Stefani Joanne, that’s who! 😂 💯

    • 1988 May 23, 2020

      PERIOD. 🙂

  9. tyty May 23, 2020

    Potential number 1 maybe…Ariana needs to stop attaching herself to useless throw away hits that nobody remembers after a week 🤷🏽‍♀️.

    • POPS+Muva May 23, 2020

      this one isn’t a throwaway it will be remembered

      • Clarks0o0ñ May 23, 2020

        Yes it will be remembered as sh*t

      • Bogus May 23, 2020

        Yes it will be remembered this a dance club anthem especially for lgbt what won’t be remembered is My Oh My, those teenage girls will grow up and

    Put some respect on Lady Gaga’s name because out of ALL the “new new new new girls”…only the youngest one is doing anything on Lady Gaga’s level when it comes to “numbers” early in her career: Billie Eilish. The rest have a LONG way to go. 🙂 And that’s on period. 🙂 Don’t come under me unless you have some numbers (in multiple millions) and accolades out the a$$ to back up your claims. Oh, and good luck.

    • POPS+Muva May 23, 2020

      periodt pooh

    • Lanafan1 May 23, 2020

      Billie had a way bigger debut and run lol

  11. POPS+Muva May 23, 2020

    they’re going for number 1 yassss

  12. JanStan May 23, 2020

    Wow….so after the flop that was the ASIB era, stadium Joanne tour, record breaking residency, Oscar, Grammys, Golden globes, etc etc shes now doing this? Poor girl obviously needs help #ifthisisfloppingwhatareyourfaves

  13. James May 23, 2020

    These streaming numbers are correct according to Chart Data, Billboard and Hits Daily Double. This is a pretty good start I hope they both get that Number 1. Can’t wait to hear Chromatica next week. 🔥🔥🔥

    • 1988 May 23, 2020

      Me too! 🙂

  14. PinotNoir May 23, 2020

    Who’s August D?

    And why do his/her/their/its songs occupy the 2-10 spots on iTunes?

    GagAri, you in danger, girls!

  15. Luis May 23, 2020

    Gaga is the new britney. Other than gays nobody else is interested in her music. This song is another weak generic pop song. Off couse she’s going to team with Ari after her flop with “stupid love”.

  16. Rashad May 23, 2020

    Love both artists but this track is extremely mediocre and not good enough for this hype. Sounds like a remixed David Morales album filler track from the 90s and not a single. It’s too short, the chorus isn’t catchy enough and it doesn’t feel like a true duet. I like Stupid Love more
