You are in for a special treat with this one!
We were so ready for this collab after Ariana and Kristin co-starred in ‘Hairspray Live!” in 2016. The two stars are at it again – and this time they are singing about female empowerment.
They teamed up for Kristin Chenoweth’s brand new album entitled, For the Girls covering a popular Lesley Gore song from the 1960’s.
Grande posted a cartoonized image of she and Chenoweth to her over 165m followers on Instagram. She praised the collaboration saying, “i have always loved you and i always will @kchenoweth ? congratulations on your new album and thank you from the bottom of my heart for having me be a part ! i truly can’t put into words how much it means to me ! i truly can’t believe this is even real #forthegirls #youdontownme“
