On December 21st, to accompany the movie’s release, the official music video for Faith from the movie Sing released as well!
You may think it’d be difficult to accompany a legend with a voice like Wonder’s, but Grande’s own high register compliments his well. In the visual for the upbeat track, Wonder’s lets loose his signature vocals — his fingers dancing along the piano as he sings — and then it cuts to Grande, dancing and singing down a city street as chalk outlines of the movie’s various animal characters come to life on the wall behind her.
Eventually, Grande and the animated cast come to join Wonder on stage to close the song, in a fun and cheery clip that will have you grooving along with the duo.

On August 17th, Mac Miller had an interview with Milk Studios about his upcoming album The Divine Feminine, and he talks about collaborating with Ariana!
The Divine Feminine is the upcoming fourth studio album by American rapper Mac Miller. It is scheduled to be released on September 16, 2016
Check out the interview below:
So you just released a song with Anderson .Paak, you’ve got a song with Kendrick Lamar, and you’ve collaborated with a ton of other artists. Who was your favorite person to collaborate with on The Divine Feminine?
There’s a song on there with Ariana [Grande] that’s really, really tight. I’m singing the whole time and the difference in both of us from when we were younger [in 2013] to now? We’ve both grown so much. [The song is] very vulnerable for me too because it’s me just singing, straight-up.
Was it intimidating to sing with her?
No, our voices sound really good [together]! She’s going to be an incredible singer [because] her voice can do anything. My voice? I emote very well and it’s very raw and real. It’s like, “Oh shit you can sing.” I’m self-conscious about it but it’s my favorite thing to do.
Just a week ago, the two artists surprised fans with the Into You Remix! This isn’t their only collaboration, as they teamed up together in Ariana’s first hit single The Way back in 2013. What do you guys think about another song by the two stars?
On August 5th, Ariana Grande took to SoundCloud to world premiere the much-rumored Mac Miller remix of her “Into You” single. The new version features a new “urbanized” production, new Ariana vocals with a more R&B feel this time, and of course, a rap verse from Mac Miller – who crazily Ariana Grande hadn’t collaborated with ever since their 2013 massive hit “The Way”.
Rumours speculated after Ariana posted a Snapchat of a SoundCloud upload page which includes the Into You remix in the photo. She also posted videos on her story of the remix, and Miller’s voice could be heard. Listen to the audio below!
In light of the past week’s tragic violence in the United States – with two black men (Alton Sterling and Philando Castile) killed by police, and five police officers (Brent Thompson, Patrick Zamarripa, Michael Krol, Michael Smith and Lorne Ahrens) slain by a sniper in Dallas – Victoria Monet and Ariana Grande have released a song in hopes of seeing “Better Days.” on July 10th
“How we gonna stop the violence, stop the hurting, stop the hatred, stop the murders?” the duo’s song asks. “We’re all human, that’s for certain. Come together, we deserve it.”
“During this challenging time, we have to remember that the only way we will progress is if the overruling force is #Love,” Grande wrote when she announced the song on Instagram Saturday (July 9). “’Music is a universal language that all of us can feel regardless of color lines, gender, sexuality, age, race, religion…. it unifies us. We believe we can not fight hate with hate, only love. Just as we can not fight darkness with more darkness. Only Light.’ Too many precious lives were taken from us this week, this month, this year. Rest in peace #AltonSterling. Rest in peace #PhilandoCastile #BlackLivesMatter. And the police that were peacefully guarding the #BlackLivesMatter rally in Dallas…. Rest in peace. #LorneAhrens, #MichaelKrol, #MichaelJSmith, #BrentThompson & #PatrickZamarripa. Stay strong and know that better days are coming.”
“I’m heartbroken by all of the recent tragedies the came as a result of hatred, racism and injustice,” said Monet on her own Instagram account. “Im also sad at how numb some of us are to it, because it is far too common! This is not a video game or a movie you’re witnessing on your screens! This is our unfortunate REALITY! When I think about how I feel, the word confused comes to mind…So today we just want to try and help in one of the ways we know how!”
The track was produced by Ronny ‘Flip’ Colson and recorded and mixed by Zach Nicholls, according to Monet. Artwork was created by Amber Park.

On May 24th, Ariana Grande has filled in for a hologram version of Whitney Houston in a duet with Christina Aguilera on the season finale of NBC’s “The Voice.”
Grande’s performance comes days after the planned hologram appearance of Houston was scrapped due to technical reasons. The late singer’s family said last week the hologram fell short of perfection and shouldn’t air.
Instead, Grande joined Aguilera, one of show’s celebrity coaches, in singing Into You/Dangerous Woman off of Grande’s new album, “Dangerous Woman” on Tuesday.
