Ariana Grande has married Dalton Gomez during a ‘tiny and intimate’ ceremony over the weekend. The news was first shared by TMZ as they revealed the superstar singer and the Los Angeles-based realtor got hitched during a private ceremony.

The publication claims the ceremony took place at the Positions hitmaker’s home in Montecito.

Ariana and Dalton were first spotted together at Bar Louie in Northridge, California back in February.

It’s not clear how Dalton and Ariana met but they do share a mutual friend – Miley Cyrus.

Ya está aquí el remix de “Save Your Tears” en el que The Weeknd fabrica su propia Ariana Grande

Este viernes nos hemos levantado con una de las sorpresas musicales más comentadas de esta semana. Se trata de The Weeknd y Ariana Grande, que han sorprendido con el lanzamiento del remix de “Save Your Tears”, el temazo del artista que ya es todo un éxito, y que está incluído en su nuevo álbum ‘After Hours’.

No podemos negar que The Weeknd está arrasando, y que su álbum ‘Afer Hours’ es uno de los mejores de 2020, con temazos que han tenido un tremendo éxito como es el caso de “Blinding Lights”, “In Your Eyes” o “Save Your Tears”. La acogida del público ha sido tal, que Abel Tesfaye fue el protagonista del intermedio de la pasada Super Bowl, iluminando el escenario y llevando la ciudad inspirada en Las Vegas, lugar donde se desarrolla gran parte del disco.

Y es que según teníamos entendido, “Save Your Tears” iba a ser el último tema del disco, pero en el último momento el artista nos ha sorprendido lanzando su remix acompañado de otra estrella como es Ariana Grande. Una colaboración muy acertada acertada en la que ambos artistas se desenvuelven perfectamente bien en el género R&B de la canción, y en la que podemos escuchar a Ariana Grande en un tono más bajo del que nos tiene acostumbrados. Ojo porque el remix viene acompañado de un videoclip muy curioso que no te puedes perder:

 

Aunque muchos de sus fans tenían la esperanza de verlos juntos, en el videoclip han optado por una versión animada del alter ego de “The Weeknd”, en el que le podemos ver con con sus características gafas y chaqueta roja, mientras hace de las suyas y se las ingenia para crear su propia Ariana Grande por piezas en lo que parece una fábrica.

UN TEMAZO QUE HA TRIUNFADO ENTRE LOS FANS

Cabe recordar que no hace mucho, The Weeknd lanzó un remix de “Blinding Lights’ con Rosalía, lo que generó un enorme debate entre los fans de ambos artistas, en los que los del canadiense coincidían en que no terminaban de ver a la española para esta canción; sin embargo la opinión para el remix de Save Your Tears con Ariana Grande ha sido bastante diferente.

Mariah Carey has announced plans for a new Christmas album and TV special next month.

The show, which will premiere on AppleTV+ on December 4, will include musical performances and guest appearances from Ariana Grande, Jennifer Hudson and Snoop Dogg.

The special will also be accompanied by a soundtrack featuring a new version of Carey’s ‘Oh Santa!’ with Grande and Hudson. She hinted that the team up was on the cards last month.

Last year her classic Christmas single ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You’, went to Number One on the Billboard Hot 100 for the first time, 25 years after its release.

Earlier this month, a music fan shared a yuletide mash-up of Metallica with Mariah Carey blending the instrumental of ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ with James Hetfield’s riffs and vocals from ‘For Whom The Bell Tolls’.

Carey also recently revealed that she worked on an alternative rock album back in 1995 before the project was shelved.

Earlier this week, the singer shared a previously unreleased video for her 1995 song ‘Underneath The Stars’.

Taken from her fifth album, ‘Daydream’, the long-lost clip is the latest instalment of the pop star’s year-long #MC30 celebration.

Shot during her ‘Daydream’ promo run, the video for ‘Underneath The Stars’ features behind-the-scenes tour footage, audience clips and shots of Carey singing the track.

Back in 2012, Carey tweeted that a video was made for the song, but said she didn’t know what happened to it. “Little-known fact, I actually shot a video 4 ‘Underneath the Stars’ in France & England that never got released & I don’t know where it is!” she said at the time.

Rihanna and Ariana Grande backstage at the 2014 iHeartRadio Music Awards held at The Shrine Auditorium on May 1, 2014 in Los Angeles.

Ariana Grande can’t wait for Rihanna’s new album, either. On Tuesday (Aug. 18), the singer took to social media to express her anticipation for her fellow pop star’s long-gestating ninth studio set.

Grande referencing the project came in response to the news that she’d officially surpassed RiRi as the most-streamed artist of all time on Spotify with a mind-blowing 20.5 billion-plus streams of her catalog.

«Holy s–t thank u all so much for listening and caring at all let alone this much. i can’t wait to give u new things to listen to,» she wrote, adding that she’ll be more than happy to pass the crown back to Rihanna whenever the new LP finally drops.

«Now can rihanna pls drop her album so she can rightfully snatch this back and fill my ears again please or ….,» Ari concluded.

Rihanna has been teasing her follow-up to 2016’s Anti since at least May 2018, when she hinted in a Vogue cover story that the album would be reggae-influenced. Since then, the star has regularly continued to poke fun at the rabid questions surrounding the LP’s yet-to-be-announced release date, often replying to fans in the comments of her Instagram.

For her part, Ari most recently unveiled K Bye For Now, an album of live recordings her Sweetener World Tour, back in Dec. 2019. Her last proper studio set was 2019’s Thank U, Next.

First Stream: New Music From Lady Gaga & Ariana Grande, The 1975, The Weeknd & Doja Cat

Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande attend Stevie Wonder: Songs in the Key of Life – An All-Star GRAMMY Salute at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Feb. 10, 2015 in Los Angeles.

Billboard’s First Stream serves as a handy guide to this Friday’s most essential releases — the key music that everyone will be talking about today, and that will be dominating playlists this weekend and beyond.

This week, Lady Gaga makes it rain with Ariana Grande, The 1975 delivers another opus and The Weeknd recruits Doja Cat for another pop radio offering. Check out all of this week’s First Stream picks below:

The Song That Can Be Described As An International Bop:
Lady Gaga feat. Ariana Grande, «Rain On Me»

If anyone thought Lady Gaga’s “Stupid Love” was a dance-pop red herring leading up to the release of her new album Chromatica, “Rain On Me,” her new collaboration with Ariana Grande, quickly dispels such notions. The new team-up shimmers to an even more spectacular degree, gobbling up house and disco touchstones to become a gigantic dance record about embracing pain as a marker of humanity (“I’d rather be dry, but at least I’m alive,” goes the post-tears refrain). Lucky for us that Gaga selected the perfect collaborator for the track: Grande sounds reinvigorated here, her melismas filling gaps in the song and her verse becoming a full-on diva showcase. If the rest of Chromatica is this propulsive, we’ll be grooving to it well into 2021.

The Album That’s Worth The 80-Minute Run Time:
The 1975, Notes on a Conditional Form

For those of you desperate to hear The 1975 deliver a concise (read: shorter) body of work after their first three albums contained at least 15 songs each: album number four, the 22-track Notes on a Conditional Form, will not grant your wish. Yet the self-indulgence and air-gulping ambition of Matty Healy and co. have also produced wide-screen brilliance on a consistent basis, and Notes on a Conditional Form demands your attention because it has several of them. The amount of rock-adjacent sounds covered here is staggering, from the scream-punk urgency of “People” to the coffee-shop acoustic intimacy of “The Birthday Party” to the hilarious gospel/rap/piano-pop mash-up  “Nothing Revealed / Everything Denied,” but Healy’s songwriting can handle the sprawl and jump over the potential missteps. Sure, The 1975 could have turned Notes on a Conditional Form into a tighter 12 songs — but then, the most interesting rock band in the world wouldn’t be themselves.

The Remix That Could Lead To Another No. 1 Smash:
The Weeknd feat. Doja Cat, «In Your Eyes» remix

The Weeknd and Doja Cat are two of the most recent artists to top the Hot 100 chart, with “Blinding Lights” and “Say So,” respectively; one is a established hitmaker approaching a decade as a major name in music, while the other is the mainstream’s most in-demand rising star. It makes sense, then, that the pair balance each other out so effectively on the new remix to the Weeknd’s “In Your Eyes,” with Abel providing the steady hand on the track and Doja delivering the breath of fresh air. “Hate the way I feel love, only hurts with real love,” she sings, her voice unexpectedly fragile, her sentiment taking a page from the Weeknd’s pleasure-is-pain brand of pop. “In Your Eyes” just received an injection of feeling from the exact right choice for a remix, and could become another major hit for both artists in the coming weeks.

The Video That Makes Eating Fruit Look Super-Cool:
Harry Styles, «Watermelon Sugar» video

“This Video Is Dedicated To Touching,” reads an intro slide ahead of Harry Styles’ new video, which takes a Fine Line standout, adds some heavy petting (on the beach, no less), and lets us all wistfully reflect on the days before social distancing. The “Watermelon Sugar” clip is celebratory and slightly ridiculous — no one man should have all that citrus, and at one point, Styles casually tosses a full watermelon high behind his head with little concern. Yet Styles’ charm levels remain unending, and watching him pal around on the beach and pose for photos will make you want to do so the same (even if, you know, the snack menu is slightly diversified).

The Album That Could Be The Arrival of a Reliable Hip-Hop Star:
Gunna, Wunna

In addition to scoring solo hits like “Skybox” and “Speed It Up,” Gunna has become one of rap’s most in-demand collaborators, hopping on recent tracks by Young Thug, NAV and his Drip Harder partner Lil Baby. Wunna, a new 18-song project, boasts its own share of high-profile collaborations, but kicks off with four solo cuts that showcase the Georgia native’s effortless flow, melodic understanding and flashy-lifestyle lyrics. Come to Wunna for the Travis Scott teaming “Top Floor” and the latest Lil Baby link-up, “Blindfold,” but stay for Gunna running laps around his foes on the crackling “Feigning” and crooning all over the late highlight “Don’t Play Around.”

The Song That You’ll Want To Add To Your Instant-Inspiration Playlist:
Sia, «Together»

“Together” is a song that Sia wrote for her upcoming directorial debut, Music, and the veteran pop mastermind has said in recent interviews that the track was designed as a closing-credits anthem. If that’s the case, rarely will leaving a movie theater feel so empowering: “Together” aims to enthrall its listener with images of rainbows, angels, sharing love and setting the past ablaze, with Sia selling the approach with full vocal enormity. From “Alive” to “The Greatest” to “Elastic Heart,” Sia has fashioned a solo career out of providing hard-fought inspiration; “Together” is a kid-friendly, candy-colored edition of that vision, and an effective way to reach a new generation of listeners.

The EP That Sounds Like An Overdue Hang With Old Friends:
Florida Georgia Line, 6 Pack EP

“It’s beer. Thirty. And I’m. Thirsty.” So goes the opening line on Florida Georgia Line’s new EP, the appropriately titled 6 Pack, and the best-selling country duo is making it clear that, even if these songs don’t represent the proper follow-up to their ambitious 2019 album Can’t Say I Ain’t Country, at the very least they’re going to check in with you and provide a party. “Thank the Lord it’s Friday night and it’s time to chill,” Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard remark on the standout “Ain’t Worried Bout It,” which joins the previously released “I Love My Country” and the impressive Songland product “Second Guessing” on the track list. That sense of relief and welcome distraction pervades the project, with FGL saddling up during a fraught period in the country and doing what they can to entertain over the course of 17 minutes.

The Song That Should Immediately Be Added To Your BBQ Mix:
Deadmau5 feat. the Neptunes, «Pomegranate»

For a too-brief moment in the 2010s, Pharrell Williams revived his career in front of the boards and became one of the biggest pop stars on the planet, thanks to “Get Lucky” with Daft Punk, then his own “Happy,” and his GIRL full-length, which snagged a Grammy nom for album of the year. Williams has seemingly placed his singing career on the back burner in recent years, but no reason that he can’t occasionally slip into the spotlight and deliver another heater, as he does on the deadmau5-Neptunes collaboration “Pomegranate.” With the robe-funk production taken care of by the experts, Williams is given room to glide around his sea of intimate euphemisms (“You’re making faces, probably so am I / We’re in the ocean / Waves are rolling in your eyes”). Even as “Pomegranate” serves as delectable summertime fodder, let’s hope it’s not the last we hear from Williams for a while.

The Album That Pop Twitter Will Be Raving About All Weekend:
Carly Rae Jepsen, Dedicated: Side B

Although Carly Rae Jepsen’s songwriting has evolved thematically with each new release — the young-love meet-cutes of her “Call Me Maybe” days have given way to adult passion and attentiveness — there’s still a mixture of an airiness and inclusivity that has served as her bedrock and turned her into a cult hero. Dedicated: Side B, a collection of cuts from the sessions of last year’s masterful Dedicated, is stronger than most pop stars’ actual albums, and part of that consistency has to do with a lack of pomp or circumstance. Songs like “Summer Love,” “Let’s Sort The Whole Thing Out” and the Bleachers team-up “Comeback” are dreamy, ‘80s-indebted pop tracks that don’t need high stakes or superficial drama to soar. Jepsen remains such a talented song creator that even her castoffs sound blissful.

Ariana Grande onstage at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards.

She teamed with Jason Robert Brown’s SubCulture for the song from «The Last Five Years.»

Ariana Grande was back on Broadway on Monday night (April 27). Well, virtually anyway. The singer joined Jason Robert Brown’s Virtual SubCulture Artist-in-Residency concert series for a three-hanky cover of the opening ballad «Still Hurting» from Brown’s 2001 The Last Five Years musical.

Grande, who got her start in 2008 in one of Brown’s earlier musicals, 13, sang her stunning vocals in front of a professional mic set-up from an undisclosed location, while Brown accompanied her remotely on piano, along with other dialed-in musicians adding strings and guitar.

“What I have missed and mourned the most over these last extraordinary weeks has been my ability to connect with music – to play and sing with other musicians, and to feel the audience responding,” Brown said in a statement about the now-online versions of the five-year-old series. “Every month for the past five years, I’ve been able to do just that at SubCulture, working with the best musicians and singers I know to make music together for a smart, involved and joyful audience in a place that’s come to feel like a second home.”

Grande really appreciated the opportunity to stretch her musical wings, writing, «that was so beautiful @MrJasonRBrown i loved every minute so much ! thank u and @SubCulture_NYC for having me and for doing this. everyone played and sang so beautifully. love u.»

The SubCulture series is free, with fans encouraged to donate to help the series’ musicians during the coronavirus shutdown of Broadway. Over the years, Ana Gasteyer, Tony Danza, Justin Guarini, Sutton Foster, Betsy Wolfe, Megan Hilty, Norm Lewis, Cynthia Erivo and many more have appeared on the seriesClick hereto watch the full performance.

Is Ariana Grande Working On New Music Again?

0

DO NOT USE - ISSUE NOT OUT YET!!!!!!!!!

On Monday (Jan. 6), Ariana Grande fueled speculation that she was working on new music after being spotted in the studio over the weekend with frequent collaborators Social House, superproducer TBHits, songwriter Njomza and more.

Tagging Grande in an Instagram Story, producer Mr. Franks — who collaborated with the superstar on 2016’s Dangerous Woman — also confirmed he’d been in the studio with her, writing «wut just happened @arianagrande» alongside a photo from behind the console.

Earlier in the week, the pop star confirmed to fans that she had indeed been back in the recording booth, but quickly shot down the idea that more music was imminent. «Neva left even when I was on tour,» she replied to one fan account on Thursday (Jan. 2) before adding, «please relax [nothing’s] coming.»

Over the last 18 months, Grande has churned out two studio sets — 2018’s Sweetener and 2019’s Thank U, Next — as well as a live album documenting her sold-out Sweetener World Tour, K Bye For Now (Swt Live).

Check out Mr. Franks’ Instagram Story, as well as Ari’s tweet, below.
