Lady Gaga devastated fans when she announced that she was postponing the release of her sixth album, Chromatica - but it was for good reason, as instead Gaga wanted to focus on helping the battle against the coronavirus pandemic. The album was supposed to be released on April 10, but instead Gaga raised millions and millions of pounds for the World Health Organisation, and then curated the One World: Together At Home concert which saw performances from the likes of Lizzo and Billie Eilish.

But now, we can all get excited again, as Gaga's second track from Chromatica - Rain On Me - is dropping on Friday, and it's a collaboration with none other than Ariana Grande. Eek!

Elton John and K-pop girlgroup Blackpink will also be joining Gaga on the album which is out on May 29. Gaga's close friend Elton John will be working with her on Sine From Above. And Blackpink feature on a track called Sour Candy.

It was in March that the singer made the tough decision to postpone the album. Writing on Instagram, she said, 'I wanted to tell you, that after a lot of deliberation, I've made the incredibly tough decision to postpone the release of Chromatica. I will announce a new 2020 release date soon.

'I believe art is one of the strongest things we have to provide joy and healing to each other during times like this, it just doesn't feel right to me to release this album with all that is going on during this global pandemic.

'Instead I prefer that we spend this time focusing on finding solutions. It's important to me that the attention is on getting essential medical equipment to healthcare professionals, making sure ids who depend on public schools for meals get the assistance they need, and that we help those who will be financially impacted by this pandemic.'
