Lady Gaga's silver-screen debut A Star Is Born is enjoying massive success with fans and critics alike: the film has grossed over $100 million domestically, tripling its production budget in less than three weeks in the United States alone, and is currently the frontrunner to win the Oscars for Best Picture, Best Actor, and Best Actress among industry experts.
On Friday, Warner Bros. surprised fans by releasing a music video for "I'll Never Love Again" from the movie's soundtrack. Gaga co-wrote "I'll Never Love Again" with Hillary Lindsey, who previously helped pen "Million Reasons" and "A-YO" on Joanne, as well as country songwriters Natalie Hemby and Aaron Raitiere.
The power ballad is the last song Gaga's character Ally performs in the movie. Speaking to Zane Lowe, Gaga revealed that she filmed the scene just hours after learning that her childhood friend Sonja had passed away.

"My very dear friend Sonja died of cancer that day," Gaga said. "We were supposed to shoot in 30 minutes, and I left the set because her husband called me and I could hear her in the background and I just got in the car and drove. I missed her by 15 minutes. I laid with her, with her husband, and their dog, and his son. When I came back, Bradley was so gentle with me and we got through it. I performed the song. All I wanted to do was sing. I'll never forget that day. It was really a special scene, and I'll always remember that moment."
