Bradley Cooper-led film A Star Is Born is one of the most memorable pieces of cinema to come out of Hollywood. This movie had an intriguing plot, and Cooper and Lady Gaga played the lead roles, and both delivered phenomenal performances.
In addition to a powerful star cast and a good plot, what elevated the film to such heights was its musical score. The Academy Award-winning star originally wanted to incorporate Gaga’s song Joanne into the film. However, the music producer had other ideas.
Mark Ronson co-wrote the song, Shallow for the movie, which became a breakthrough hit. Shallow became a chartbuster, one of the best-selling singles of all time. It also won the Best Original Song Oscar at the 91st Academy Awards.
Bradley Cooper Initially Wanted to Use Another Song in A Star Is Born

In 2018, he co-starred with singing sensation Lady Gaga in their shared American romantic drama A Star Is Born. In the flick, he played the role of Jackson, a well-established singer, and husband of Ally Maine, played by Gaga. The singer-actor duo received critical acclaim for their performances, and their undeniable chemistry in the movie also fueled their off-screen rumor romance.
The film featured an Oscar-winning song Shallow by the Bloody Mary singer that broke many records and topped several charts. However, The Hangover movie star initially wanted to feature her other hit song, Joanne, instead of Shallow, as music producer Mark Ranson recently revealed that the actor liked Gaga’s song so much that he asked him if he could use it in the movie. Ranson told the NME,
“We were working on Gaga’s album Joanne and Bradley Cooper stopped by the studio one afternoon. I like his films. He showed up looking like a movie star. So we hung out. He was really sweet, talking about this new script that they were both doing. I played him the song called Joanne, and he’s like, ‘That’s great, can I have it?’ I know he’s a big star and everything, but I really liked that song. And I kind of needed it for Gaga’s record. I agreed to take some time to work on a new song.”
Mark Ranson talked about the song Joanne, which he turned down to be used in Bradley Cooper starrer A Star Is Born, and shared how he helped co-write the hit song Shallow for the film.
