AceShowbiz – Ariana Grande has a collaboration with Doja Cat under her sleeve. Shortly after the “Juicy” rapper and Nicki Minaj claimed their first number one on the Billboard Hot 100 with their “Say So” remix, the “Thank You, Next” hitmaker came forward with a revelation that the two of them had worked on a song together, and she was waiting for the right time to release it.
Speaking to Zane Lowe for Apple Music’s Beats 1, the 26-year-old singer first expressed her fascination at the 24-year-old rapper. “I love her,” she admitted. “I was able to work with her earlier this year on this song that I want to save for whenever it’s time again, to drop. I love her personality. I love what she brings to the table musically. She’s just such a breath of fresh air. I think she’s brilliant and so talented.”
During the Wednesday, May 13 interview, Grande also recalled the first time she showed the song to the MC. “I remember when I first wrote it and sent it to her, she was in the shower and she was like, ‘B***h, I love this. I’m in the shower.’ And I was like, ‘Shower. You can call me back,’ ” she recounted. “She called me back, and she was twerking to it, and her hair was falling off. She twerked so hard that her wig fully flew off.”
“She had a whole verse done, everything was done,” the ex-fiancee of Pete Davidson continued sharing. “I was like, ‘First of all, you ate.’ She was like, ‘How many bars can I take? Because this is mad inspiring and I want to just go.’ And I was like, ‘Take as many bars as you want. Do it. If you’re inspired to say stuff, let’s go.’ And so she just goes off on it, and it’s so much fun, and I love it. It’s my favorite so far.”
Still, when asked if she is using her time in quarantine amid the coronavirus pandemic to work on a new album, Grande stated, “There’s nothing to tell.” She explained, “I’m not putting one out. Talk to you when that’s, I mean, I’ve been making stuff. I’ve been making a lot of stuff, but that’s not where my head is at right now.”
About feeling creative while at home, the “7 Rings” hitmaker admitted, “I think as far as creating goes, it feels really good.” Nonetheless, she was quick to add, “But also, I don’t really feel comfortable putting anything out right now, because it’s just like other than this, it’s a really tricky time for all of that.”
