UPDATE (8/12): On Monday, August 11 Ariana Grande shared "Best Mistake," the latest single from her highly anticipated sophomore album, My Everything. The slow-burning R&B song features (rumored) boyfriend Big Sean dropping a verse of, "Wear your heart up on your sleeve / So watch out for pickpockets / I guess to go the distance we might need to pit stop it." Grande croons in response, "But you know I’ll be saving my love for you / ‘Cause you’re the best mistake I’ve ever made / But we hold on/ Hold on." Listen to the intimate track below!
While Grande had to recently cancel a few tour dates to spend time with her ill grandfather, the pop star kept her fans happy by teasing a few seconds of "Best Mistake," featuring Big Sean via Instagram. With lyrics like, "Breakup / Make Up / Total waste of time / Can we please make up our minds," something tells us this R&B jam will serve as the crux of heartbreak on the album.
Big Sean was one of the first artists Grande name-checked upon announcing the details of My Everything, and it's great to see the two close friends working together on such a standout track.
