The likes of Charli XCX, Rina Sawayama and Bree Runway are also said to feature on the upcoming album.
It looks like Arca will appear on Lady Gaga’s forthcoming Chromatica remix album. The project has been alluded to for some time now, with BloodPop – Chromatica‘s executive producer – hinting to potential remixers and features on Twitter.
Now, former Crack Magazine cover star Arca has announced her involvement in the project. Sharing the news via her Discord server, the singer revealed that she’s remixed Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande’s hit Rain On Me. “Rain On Me remix is soooo good,” Arca told fans. “Y’all are gonna gag.”
She went onto explain that the remix samples two songs – Time and Mequetrefe – from her 2020 album KiCk i. The remix also “includes a sample by my favourite changa tuki aka raptor house producer, DJ Yirvin – an iconic song called Mételo Sáculo,” she added. Arca also revealed that the remix is slated for release on 20 August.
