Lady Gaga's brand new song Hold My Hand, the theme song for the upcoming Top Gun: Maverick, is getting a splendid turnout on social media, after the first official screening of the movie at CinemaCon.
Robert Liefeld, comic-book writer and Academy member:
Fantastic! Perfect song to close with!
Lauren Huff, Entertainment Weekly writer and Hollywood Critics Association member:
Can confirm that Lady Gaga's Top Gun: Maverick song is a total bop and I cannot wait to hear the full thing.
Chris Lindahl, IndieWire:
Lady Gaga’s “Hold My Hand” is a seamless piece of the catharsis of this surprisingly emotional movie, a ballad that reminds everyone — not that we needed it — that Gaga is a vocal powerhouse.
Ruben Nepales, award-winning photojournalist:
Lady Gaga's Hold My Hand is a fittingly memorable song to cap the entertaining Top Gun Movie which I just saw here at CinemaCon. Predicting another hit for Lady Gaga. And a big summer hit in Top Gun Movie.
Drew Taylor, The Wrap reporter:
Also for those wondering, Lady Gaga’s Top Gun Maverick new single is divine. It plays over the closing credits/curtain call (very much like the first movie) and brings home the emotion of finale. Like everything else with this movie, it’s note perfect.
John Nguyen, Hollywood Critics Association member:
The "Hold My Hand" song from Lady Gaga featured in Top Gun Maverick totally fits the theme and feel of the film.
Jeffrey Harris, Rotten Tomato critic:
I loved Lady Gaga’s “Hold My Hand” song featured in Top Gun: Maverick! Really fit the tone of the film.
