    Ben Rice Talks Chromatica And Gearing Up For Next Gaga Project

    Ben Rice, a frequent collaborator with Lady Gaga, spoke with Texarkana Gazette about his experience making Chromatica and working with Gaga and Ariana Grande on the grammy award winning #1 hit Rain On Me. 

    Rice mentions the sheer excitement that was in the studio once Ariana Grande joined the process for Rain On Me. 

    He states:

    "It was a very warm, hugging environment," he said, adding, "We played it for her and she was so excited and she got emotional about it, just super-hyped up."

    Ben Rice continued to describe Rain On Me, and Chromatica's personal messages being infused with upbeat dance production. He says the album itself "is a dance album" and that Gaga was "intimate and personal putting herself courageously into the songs."

    Rice even opened up about his previous work with Gaga, the soundtrack for A Star Is Born, and how it is one if the most meaningful projects he's ever worked on.  Yet, he still illuminates on Chromatica, saying "it felt good to pick up where they left off and do something entirely different for Chromatica." 

    Rice reveals that he's also "gearing up for the next Gaga project."  Further stating that he has a studio at his house where he can work remotely with people through Zoom.

    I wonder what this "next Gaga project" is. I'm. trying to not set myself up for disappointment thinking it'll be act II or LG7 so soon so I'm trying to stay rational and believe they're working on the remix album.

    It could be anything. But I'm sure ARTPOP Act II will be released at some point...and maybe even a second act of Chromatica.....Benjamin could work on those projects as well. We'll see!

    My bets are between LG7 or Chromatica part II. But then again, I have a tendency to do clownery

    I'm leaning more towards a) an expanded reissue of Chromatica including new songs or b) the remix album BloodPop "theoretically" tweeted about.

    To be honest, I would rather have a reissue of Chromatica with new songs (songs that she already did but didn't make it on the album), rather than a remix album with featurings with other artists, with the songs we already have.

    Yeah I would also prefer to have a reissue with new songs over a remix album. That being said, however, if they were to place new songs into the tracklist of a remix album then I wouldn't mind so much.

    Yes I'm hoping for that too. Chromatica deserves more. It's honestly one of her top albums

    At first I thought he was referring to the Jazz project but I realised the vinyls for those have already been pressed :DerpGa:

    Omg yes I would love piano versions 😭
    I honestly don't like remixes, the original version is always the best. But if by remixes they mean re recording the songs with other artists that's ok. But new songs are definitely better 🤣

    the original tweet of Blood mentioning the remix album was along the lines of "Hypothetically what artists would you like to see on a Chromatica remix album"

    EDIT: here's Blood's first tweet mentioning the remix album

    https://twitter.com/bloodpop/status/1378789175197986819?s=20

    Exactly, it's all about "in theory". I feel like something it's gonna be released. But I wouldn't say it's confirmed until Gaga say so, or until they tell has a DATE lol.

    Just don't be deluded, that's all.

    We have waited 8 year to MAYBE finally have the second act of ARTPOP 🤣

    Yeah I kinda like the fact that Gaga doesn't do many featurings, but she just sings with really good and talented artists, rather than random people  🤣
    I would be happy with everything too, whatever she wants to do in terms of music that's ok for me.

    This explains the 1000 Doves piano demo. It is so raw and you can listen to Gaga’s pain in her voice ❤️🥺

    i am wondering if this "gearing up for new Gaga project" means he's working rn or preparing to work in the near months..I mean he could've talked with her press team, cuz teasing this kind of thing is strange for me to come out of her producer and not Gaga herself..and still curious when does the movie end filming:DerpGa:
