Lady Gaga has reportedly recorded a song for the Top Gun: Maverick soundtrack.
The 36-year-old pop superstar has written ‘Hold My Hand’ for the eagerly anticipated fighter plane action sequel, which sees Tom Cruise reprise his role as Captain Pete “Maverick” Mitchell from the original 1986 blockbuster.
Gaga is set to release the “epic” anthem as a single in May and it is already being tipped for a possible Best Original Song Oscar at the 2023 Academy Awards.
A source told The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column: “‘Hold My Hand’ is Gaga at her best. It was due out at the end of this month but bosses pushed the release back slightly. The video was finished a while ago.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if, come next year, Gaga has got herself another Best Original Song nod from the Academy.”
Gaga previously took home the Best Original Song prize at the 2019 Oscars for ‘Shallow’, which she recorded with Bradley Cooper for their acclaimed romantic drama A Star Is Born.
On Monday (Apr 25) she shared on Twitter what fans are speculating are the song’s lyrics. She wrote, “Hold my hand everything will be ok I heard from the heavens that clouds have been grey.”

Meanwhile, The ‘Just Dance’ singer is preparing for her Chromatica Ball world tour which kicks off at the Merkur Spiel-Arena in Dusseldorf, Germany, on July 17.
The show is set to feature both fan-favourite hits along with brand new performances of songs from Gaga’s 2020 album Chromatica, for which she won the Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album in 2021.
Top Gun: Maverick opens in Singapore cinemas on May 26.
