Ariana Grande and rumored current boyfriend Big Sean reportedly began dating after working on Ari’s single, “Problem”, together, and the lovebirds have already released a track of their own. These two sure do move fast!
The song — called “Best Mistake” — has Ari on lead vocals while her possible new beau comes in around the 1:30 mark. You can hear portions of it in the video above. The tune, though slower than what we’re used to from Ariana, still shows off her delicate yet impressive vocals in a very mature fashion. “You're the best mistake that I've ever made / But we hold on / There's no pot of gold at the rainbows we chase / But we hold on,” she sings in the chorus, clearly talking about a star-crossed affair of some kind.
It was rumored that Ariana cheated on ex-boyfriend Jai Brooks back in October with The Wanted’s Nathan Sykes after Jai want on a Twitter rant that began, “Yes I was cheated on. Yes it does suck.” While he never mentioned Ariana by name, he did call out Nathan, continuing, “Nathan may be a top bloke or a sweet person, but what he did was just completely wrong. He interfered with my life and did not respect my relationship, his actions caused me to not be able to sleep at night and not see the world as a beautiful place.”
After Nathan and Ari fizzled she got back together with Jai, though they called it quits once more earlier this month because the Aussie wasn’t “supportive enough”, and now she’s said to be with Naya Rivera’s (Santana) ex, Big Sean.
Speaking of Naya, Big Sean’s verse kicks off right after the first chorus, and we’re fairly certain the rapper is throwing some serious shade at his former fiancée. Big Sean sings lines like, “Wear your heart up on your sleeves so watch out for pickpockets / I guess to go the distance we might need to pit stop it,” which could be a reference to the Rolex the rapper allegedly stole from the Glee star.
He later adds, “I wish that you were happy I guess thats the one thing I should be providing / Ain't no number twos we both ones and ones the oddest / Couple only human except you, you a goddess / Only lying to you when I lie you down, just being honest / When you start as friends it's hard to say you're never going back / If I'm not the one then I'm the best mistake you ever had.”
Ouch! Big Sean certainly has some things to get off his chest, as does Ariana. At least they’re doing it together!
