They have yet to go public with their rumored relationship, but there's absolutely no denying that rapper Big Sean and petite-songstress-with-a-big-voice Ariana Grande make beautiful music together.
Late last night, Ari released "Best Mistake" featuring Big Sean, which happens to be written by the self-proclaimed "best friends" (inspired by true events maybe?) for her sophomore effort, My Everything.
The track is melodically driven and reminiscent of Mariah Carey, whom the songbird is often compared to. Particularly, it has the smooth vibe of MC's "The Roof" mixed with the beautiful vocals of "My All."
On the record, Ariana sings:
'Cause if the water dries up and the moon stops shining, stars fall and the world goes blind boy, you know I'll be saving my love for you. 'Cause you're the best mistake I've ever made, but we hold on.
And Big Sean recites this
love poem rap:
I know sometimes it's hard to realize I'm the man that you need. I had a dream we branched out, started a family tree. And I feel like that everything we do is overdue. You ask why I love your mom so much, 'cause she's an older you. I wish that you were happy. I guess that's the one thing I should be providing.
Whoa. Such romantic and sweet words coming from the rapper, right? But then his lyrics momentarily get R-rated when he later says, "Only lying to you when I lie you down, just being honest." Ow!
In only a year's time, the duo has released a total of three songs, including "Right There" from Ari's debut album Yours Truly, and "Problem" with Iggy Azalea and, now, "Best Mistake" from My Everything.
At this rate, Big Sean and Ariana are poised to become the next Jay Z and Beyonce, who collaborated on countless songs prior to walking down the aisle or even going public with their longtime relationship.
Are the musical partners hinting they're more than just friends with "Best Mistake?" Listen below!
