Ariana Grande Shows Off Her Rap Skills By Taking Nicki Minaj's 'Side to Side' Verse on The Tonight Show
The pop princess also announced her Dangerous Woman tour will kick off on Feb. 2
Everyone knows that Ariana Grande has incredible vocal range, but did you know she had some fierce flow?
The “Dangerous Woman” singer appeared on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon Thursday night to perform her recent hit, “Side to Side.” Unfortunately Nicki Minaj wasn’t present to handle the rap break, so Grande took matters into her own hands (or should we say mouth?) by rattling off the rhymes.
She did such a stellar job that even Minaj had to give her props, tweeting a cute message to her sister in song.
But that was far from the only highlight of her appearance. Grande, 23, also officially announced her much-anticipated tour in support of her latest album, Dangerous Woman! The set of 36 dates will kick off on Feb. 2, 2017, in Phoenix. “I’m so excited,” she gushed to Fallon. “I can’t wait to hit the road again!”
As if there isn’t enough Grande goodness to celebrate, fans were also treated to her steamy new duet with beau Mac Miller. Called “My Favorite Part,” the track dropped overnight after she teased snippets of the song on social media Thursday afternoon. It will be included on Miller’s upcoming fourth album, The Divine Feminine, due out Sept. 16.
Things have been heating up between the couple in recent weeks. They made it “Instagram official” on Tuesday by posting a cute photo showing the pair in affectionate embrace.
But the rumors had been swirling long before that. Grande and Miller, 24, were spotted walking together on a New York City sidewalk ahead of the MTV VMA’s on Aug. 28, where they were seen getting cozy in their seats.
