Ariana Grande has loaned her angelic vocals to good pal Demi Lovato’s new song after helping her manager take the singer on- and we wish we had friends with voices like this to borrow from.
Demi Lovato has borrowed Ariana Grande’s vocals for their first ever collaboration called 'Met Him Last Night', sharing the incredible high notes on Instagram before confirming the upcoming track in an interview with Paper magazine.
The 28-year-old has opened up like never before in her newly released docu-series Dancing With The Devil, detailing her near fatal 2018 overdose and recovery.
It is well known Ari stepped in to help convince her manager, Scooter Braun, to take on Demi after she had recovered and they pair have remained not just close friends- but now, first time collaborators.
i can’t believe we’re finally getting a demi and ariana collab— Ricky Dillon (@RickyPDillon) March 24, 2021
So- let's look at what we know about the tune so far.
In the first teaser clip, Ari’s unmistakable harmonies play for a few short seconds and we already can’t wait to hear the full track of the two stars who have grown closer.
“Backgrounds on a song for a friend,” she captioned it.
Demi basically confirmed it was for her by sharing the post and adding a bunch of side-eye emojis to it.
As stated, Ari and Demi are under the same management, Scooter Braun, and fans are loving the fact they’ve teamed up, calling it ‘Dariana’.
Both are also known for their mind blowing vocal abilities, so the whole thing makes total sense and been a long time coming!
“Demi lovato's new album having a collab with ariana grande? wow, i can tell that album slaps already [sic],” one person commented on Twitter.

Another tweeted: “today is a great day for demi & ariana fans DARIANA IS COMING.”
Demi has been wanting an Ari collab for years, with one fan resurfacing an interview where she said: “Finding the right song for two girls to sing is really difficult, so it hasn’t come together yet.”
We’re so glad they finally found one and an iconic friendship at the same time.
