Singer Lady Gaga is about to deliver a brand new song that is sure to top the charts.
The new song, which won’t be available until May 3, was written for the “Top Gun: Maverick” soundtrack. The film, which won’t be released until May 27, is directed by Joseph Kosinski and stars Tom Cruise, Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, Ed Harris, Val Kilmer, and more.
Lady Gaga Reveals New Song ‘Hold My Hand’ Took Years To Make
The “Bad Romance” singer teased the new song on her Instagram page on Wednesday morning.
“When I wrote this song for Top Gun: Maverick, I didn’t even realize the multiple layers it spanned across the film’s heart, my own psyche, and the nature of the world we’ve been living in,” she explained.
“I’ve been working on it for years, perfecting it, trying to make it ours,” she continued. “I wanted to make music into a song where we share our deep need to both be understood and try to understand each other—a longing to be close when we feel so far away and an ability to celebrate life’s heroes.”
“I’m so grateful to Tom and Hans and Joe for this opportunity—and it’s been a beautiful experience working with them,” she added. “Me, BloodPop, Ben Rice and everyone else who worked on it with us are so excited to share it with you.”
“This song is a love letter to the world during and after a very hard time. I’ve wanted you to hear it for so long,” she concluded. “And I’m so excited to give it to you on May 3. ‘Hold My Hand.’”
She also teased a snippet of the lyrics, “But if you decide to / I’ll ride in this life with you / I won’t let go till the end.”
Fans Are Hoping This Song Will Give Lady Gaga Her Second Oscar!
The “Born This Way” singer’s post received over 200,000 likes in less than an hour.
“I literally have been pushed to a new level after reading this #ICONIC,” one user wrote.
“THE 2ND OSCAR IS COMING! 🔥” another commented.
“ANOTHER OSCAR WINNING SONG SECURED IN THE BAG!!” said another.
Although Gaga failed to secure a nomination for Best Actress in the 2022 Oscar race, she previously won an Oscar for her hit song “Shallow” from “A Star Is Born,” which earned an Academy Award for Best Original Song.
Although “Gucci” costars Adam Driver, Al Pacino, Jared Leto, and Jeremy Irons also failed to score any Oscar noms, Gaga did congratulate Frederic Aspiras, her hairstylist and wig designer, for his Oscar nomination for Makeup & Hairstyling. (The win actually went to “The Eyes of Tammy Faye.”)
Lady Gaga Sings The Praises Of The Other Nominees (No, Not Literally)
After the nominations were announced, Gaga took to Instagram to share a sweet black-and-white snap of the pair before congratulating him on his nomination.
“I could not be happier for a man I call my brother, who I’ve worked with for the last 15 years, @fredericaspiras, for his nomination in Makeup & Hairstyling for House of Gucci,” Gaga wrote.
“Frederic was magical, precise, and dedicated months leading up to shoot and during filming,” she went on. “He prepared dozens of wigs for months and months, and did at least a year of preparation. He’s a living genius and Freddie, we are all so [grateful] to just even be near your talent, creativity, and generosity of spirit.”
“You continue to show your artistic DNA, your plan, your vision, and your deep connection to your family that drives you to excellence at all times,” she wrote. “I love you, I’m rooting for you.”
Aspiras has been nominated for several other awards for his work in Makeup and Hair in “House of Gucci,” including the coveted BAFTA Award.
Lady Gaga was not the only one who got snubbed. Many were shocked when Jennifer Hudson didn’t earn a nom for her role in “Respect.” However, Lady Gaga was gracious in defeat as she penned a sweet message to the other talented entertainers.
“And to all the nominees this year, congratulations on all your hard work, dedication, your nomination and YOUR magic—you all deserve major recognition for what was a truly beautiful landscape of performances and accomplishments this past year,” she wrote.
“Your dedication during Covid, your huge hearts, and your ability to tell amazing stories is a gift to the whole world during what is for many a very hard time,” she continued. “Congratulations my friends. Bravo!”
