Rain on me is absolutely house. You listen to the instrumental if the vocals are distracting u. It’s a very very house-driven record the beat that drives the song can’t be argued as anything other than it besides dance pop/pop as well.

Some people really need to learn that correlation does not imply causation. 
 

Yes, Chromatica is an album that predominantly features house music. 
 

No, that does not automatically mean that Beyoncé was inspired by Chromatica/Gaga to release a house track.

But people are saying the only reason Beyonce is releasing house music is because Chromatica brought the genre to the mainstream with hits like ROM.

The album went #1 in the US and all over the world. Both singles were top 5/top 10 all over the world. 

Rain on Me placed on every possible list of best songs of 2020 and won a Grammy. The album placed in many year end lists. 

 

So, yes, you don't need to be a 21-sized smash in the GP's eyes to be impactful. 

 

It worked for Gaga and her peers took a note. And the more desperately Gaga's haters try to disprove that, the more it becomes obvious that they most likely some truth in this comparisons and that hurts them, lmao

Every single critic referred to it as ''house''... but it seems because a Britney Spears stan made a thread on ATRL suddenly it's not? Never change ATRL :toofunny2:

 

This is from Pitchfork's album review, the same Pitchfork that ATRLers who really stan for teenybopper acts worship and use to show off their oh-so superior music taste:

 

"This is house music at its most shiny and immaculate, a genre made from ache and escapism, high strings and numbing throbs."

No, it's just a basic and dated album, it doesn't make it "house".

Rain On Me is one of the most obvious house-influenced songs on the album :rip: 

 

Alice, Babylon, Enigma, Sour Candy, 1000 Doves and ROM are all heavily influenced by house music especially '90s house and ballroom music.

Chromatica is a dance album with 90s house influences. 

 

Listen to ROM demo and you can see how the songs started as house tracks and were slowly upgraded and modernized.

Chris DeVille from Stereogum named "Rain on Me" as the best pop song of 2020, calling it an epic dance track that finds euphoria in resilience and stating "over a mammoth '90s-vintage house beat, Gaga and Grande channeled every ounce of their diva power, not quite erasing their trauma and struggle but vanquishing it for three minutes at a time".

This is the most level headed response in this thread. Yes Chromatica is mostly a house pop record. No Beyonce was not inspired by Chromatica.

Yes. As in the sense that you never hear it outside your home.

The choruses of Alice and Replay are the closest it gets to house. The rest is really just eurodance/dance-pop.

 

Beyoncé leaned into diva house and “soulful” house and Big Freedia added her touches. I wouldn’t say Beyoncé was inspired by Chromatica simply because that album isn’t inspirational or influential.

How are people trying to argue that it isn't house? Alice, Free Woman, Sour Candy, Enigma, 1000 Doves and Babylon are all straight up house songs, and Rain On Me and Replay are disco-house.

 

I think part of the issue is Americans referring to songs like this as 'EDM' rather than the actual genre.

Anything to discredit Gaga cause you've been trashing Gaga's House Album since release only for your fave to release a cheap tacky and try hard copy :bibliahh:
