Lady Gaga & Ariana Grande storm to No. 1 in UK charts

Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande have stormed to No. 1 in this week’s UK Singles Chart with their new single, 'Rain On Me' [watch below].

Notching up 70,000 chart sales to seize the top position from last week’s leader, DaBaby’s 'Rockstar' ft. Roddy Ricch, 'Rain On Me' claims the biggest ever opening week streaming numbers by an all-female collaboration in the UK, with 8.1 million plays in seven days. It’s also Gaga’s first single to debut at No. 1.

Reacting to the news, Lady Gaga said:

“If someone told me the day I wrote Rain on Me, a day I was crying water like misery, that this song would someday be No. 1, I never would have believed them.

"Thank you for celebrating this song. It’s my gift to you, to celebrate yourself. I hope the whole world is dancing.

"To all my UK monsters, I love you so much from the bottom of my heart. Thank you for making me No. 1, and I hope you feel No. 1 every time you listen to this song.”

'Rain On Me' is the second single from Gaga’s new album Chromatica, which was also released today on May 29.

Both Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande now have six UK No. 1 singles each, joining the likes of Queen, Britney Spears and Rod Stewart. It’s also the first all-female collaboration to hit Number 1 in six years, since Grande teamed up with Jessie J and Nicki Minaj on 'Bang Bang' in 2014.
