Ariana Grande just said “thank you, beside” this rumor.
The 28-year-old pop star set the record straight after many fans assumed she was involved in Kanye westis very publicized Donda album, which was released on Sunday August 29th. Although the 44-year-old rapper claimed that Universal Music Group released his album earlier, there is no denying that people listened to his music impatiently and tried to decode every word.
In fact, the Arianators believed the “positions” singer had teamed up with Kanye after hearing background vocals in the album’s title song that sounded eerily like his own. However, Ariana took to Instagram Stories on Monday August 30 to end the rumors.
The Grammy winner revealed that the artist Stalone is the voice behind the backing vocals, writing in a since-deleted post, “You look so beautiful @thestalone [three fire heart emojis]. “
“Always so humble and excited,” Stalone shared on Instagram Stories, reposting the Ariana caption. “Thanks again, Ari.”
