The result — a gut-wrenching ballad about grief and survival titled "Til It Happens To You" — was featured in the film's end credits.

Told from the point of view of a rape victim, the song was partially inspired by Lady Gaga's own experiences with rape.

Now the song is the soundtrack to a heartbreaking PSA about campus rape — which, warning, contains graphic depictions of sexual violence that may be triggering for some viewers.

On Thursday night, Lady Gaga told fans on Twitter that she hopes the video will help survivors "all over the world" find peace.
