Lady Gaga & Cher Collaboration: Coming Soon
According to a report, “The Greatest Thing” producer RedOne actually worked with the “Bad Romance” songstress long ago on the song, which eventually made its way into the ears of Cher.
RedOne explained, "[Gaga and I] recorded the song a few years ago, and we were always in the studio enjoying that song. It's weird we never did anything with it. So I remember my management and Cher's management were trying to get us together, and I thought, 'Oh my God, I'd love to meet Cher, just to meet her!'”
“And so I met her, I played her some songs, and I played her 'The Greatest Thing,' and she loved it. She said, 'This is my song,' I said, 'Yes, it's your song.' "
"I cut the vocals with Cher first, and I was in Madrid and got a text from Gaga saying, 'I'm thinking about jumping on the song in the remix.’ I was like, 'No, you should jump on the original! Make it a duet.' She said, 'Oh yes, OK, absolutely,' and then I spoke to Cher, and it became a party.”
"Everybody loved it. Gaga on it, Cher, two big icons, [they are] part of music history. So it happened. I'm very happy to be a part of this."
