El primer proyecto de la neoyorquina en la gran pantalla, ‘Ha nacido una estrella’, ha sido reconocido por la Academia de Hollywood. Que Shallow era una canción de Oscar es algo que todos los fans de Lady Gaga sabían desde que la escucharon por primera vez. La Academia de Hollywood también lo ha pensado y ha reconocido el trabajo a la artista otorgándole la preciada estatuilla dorada, la primera en su carrera. Se trata del tema principal de Ha nacido una estrella, el filme con el que Bradley Cooper ha debutado como director de cine, además de ser el actor principal. Un plano que ha compartido con la cantante, demostrando que forman un tándem excepcional.

In 2011, Lady Gaga released “You & I,” a honky-tonk ballad that chimed more with Shania Twain and country rock musical numbers than with her pop beginnings. With that in mind, students of Gaga were not entirely surprised by her last full-length album, 2016’s Joanne. Talked up as a sudden about-turn search for “authenticity” (please, no), the signs had long been there that Gaga would strip down to rootsy, showtune basics like a Broadway Dolly Parton. Joanne necessarily bled into what comes now: her lead role in Bradley Cooper’s remake of A Star Is Born. For Gaga, talk of “authenticity” is useless. Gaga has always been a theatrical phenom; hers is a complete blurring of life and show. A star, she was born. “Shallow,” the original theme of A Star Is Born, may prove to be Gaga’s own apex in the spotlight, her completion into superstar of charts and screen. “Shallow” is a slow-building conversation around picked guitar, beginning with Bradley Cooper’s inviting “tell me something, girl.” He doesn’t quite have the deep growl of a Kris Kristofferson (who played opposite Barbra Streisand in the 1976 film) but pulls off the earnestness required to hand over to his far superior singing partner; his restraint recognizes that it’s not his moment to shine but hers. Gaga carries everything here with familiar battleworn strength; her voice begins sturdy and climbs to a heady wail. Eventually she shatters the ceiling, coursing across a body of drums and pedal steel guitar, belting, “We’re far from the shallow now.” Her performance suggests A Star Is Born will be a tale of grit, determination, and high-stakes drama. What else have we come to expect from Lady Gaga? “Shallow,” the Bradley Cooper-Lady Gaga duet from the forthcoming remake of A Star Is Born, opens with an acoustic guitar that recalls strumming from the Peak Power Ballad Era — think the percussive nature of “More Than Words” and the filigrees of “I Remember You,” with a bit of “To Be With You” shagginess thrown in for good measure; Cooper’s slightly raspy voice brings to mind today’s country-pop singers in Unplugged mode. But when Lady Gaga — playing Ally, the ingenue who gets drawn in by Cooper’s grizzled rocker — comes in to cheers, “Shallow” explodes into colors, turning a simple love song into high drama. Rock Powerhouse Gaga is one of her best personas, allowing her to channel her theater-kid background and pop-star present simultaneously; “Shallow” lets her not just revel but sound like she’s bathing in it, from the ovation accompanying her arrival to her final repetition of the chorus. The key moment, of course, is Gaga’s 17-second run at the song’s bridge, a vocal triumph that future generations will study. The musicians crouch into their starting blocks at 2:25, and two seconds later, she fires the starter’s pistol, teasing what’s to come with a breathy gasp; her voice then opens, and opens more, until she’s seemingly threatening to swallow the entire stage whole, sustaining its triumphant ending note before crashing back into its Bic lighter-worthy chorus. Cooper’s somewhere in there, too, but Gaga steals the show as easily in Hollywood as she does in pop. What an affecting ballad, power-pop duet, statement of purpose and major Hollywood moment for these two incredibly talented individuals. We’ll have a full review of the film soon, but we’re just gonna say this: Both Cooper and Gaga completely disappear into their roles. The power and energy of Gaga’s voice is totally present in this clip, but there’s less of her IRL bombast, which makes songs like “Bad Romance” so distinctive. Ally (her character’s name) couldn’t be more different from Mother Monster. “Shallow” is a massive, roaring rock song with a pop garnish; it’s actually difficult to compare the music to that of any particular artist. It sounds like it could be an earlier-career Miley Cyrus track, but also like it could have been written by Carly Simon or Stevie Nicks or Bonnie Raitt maybe? We don’t know. Just listen and decide for yourself. Lady Gaga's constant reinvention has never felt arch; instead, it takes frequent detours off pop music's highway. Her characters have permeated music, but in a new version of the film A Star Is Born, she plays Ally, an unknown singer-songwriter who meets Jackson Maine (Bradley Cooper). He wants to make her a star — yet another character for Gaga to inhabit while re-orbiting her own music. "Shallow" sets the stage for a quiet, reflective country croon, the recording opting to keep in audience noise and their rapturous response. Bradley Cooper, with a sweet and amiable set of pipes, trades verses with Gaga about finding more, wanting more out of life and lovers. But then Gaga's theater kid comes roaring in at the chorus: "I'm off the deep end, watch as I dive in / I'll never meet the ground," growling the last word as if every rejection, every ex, every barrier embodies it. Beyond the shallow end of life, they embrace the deep. If this song doesn't give you chills, I feel bad for you. Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper give an unbelievable performance in the song "Shallow" for A Star Is Born, creating a heartfelt, moving track that deserves an award. No, all the awards. Cooper's voice is great. Lady Gaga is transcendent. And yes, this the song with the famous Lady Gaga vocal. + The New York Times: The first song from the upcoming remake of “A Star Is Born,” written and directed by Bradley Cooper, is a good, old-fashioned, sound-of-the-1970s, gumption-of-the-1980s, high-treacle-higher-pomp roots ballad. Mr. Cooper is a fine singer, fine as in adequate. It’s Lady Gaga who throbs intensely here, leaning deep into the natural husk of her voice, and swapping her ordinary costume for a different type of polish, one that reveals more than it hides. Screen Crush: It’s the best moment of the film – honestly, a top contender for one of the single best movie moments of 2018. Awards Circuit: The song is the presumed frontrunner for this year’s Best Original Song. One of Geek: Shallow is the first destined-to-be hit song recorded from A Star is Born.
