Top Gun: Maverick is right around the corner and we can’t wait. It feels like the world has been waiting forever for this sequel to the 1986 film.
Top Gun: Maverick is one of the most anticipated movies of the year and it’s something we are definitely excited for. They’ve definitely got something right with Lady Gaga making original music for the movie. While we’d heard the song, we’d been waiting for the music video.
“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. I’ve been working on it for years, perfecting it, trying to make it ours,” she wrote in the original announcement for the song.
“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,” she continued.
“I’m so grateful to Tom and Hans and Joe for this opportunity—and it’s been a beautiful experience working with them. 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.”
And she did just that with this amazing song. Now the video is here and it’s equally as amazing. It mixes footage from the movie with black and white footage of Lady Gaga singing. It’s beautiful, but that’s definitely something we can always count on from Lady Gaga.
