Off the top of her insanely good 2018 Billboard Music Awards performance, Ariana Grande is continuing to demonstrate her power over us mere mortals by sharing a teaser of her new single, The Light Is Coming, featuring Nicki Minaj.
Now, you might think “teaser, no big deal” but hoo boy, the Arianators are shaking in their boots at the first taste of a brand new single.
This isn’t Ariana’s first collab with Nicki either, the two teamed up for the tunes Bang Bang, Gimme On Up, and Side To Side. So judging from these three songs, the new one’s going to be an absolute bop and a half.
Taking to her social media, Ariana posted the snippet and sent her fans into utter chaos:
Then Nicki retweeted the post with the lyrics she raps:
Can’t let a EFF boy EFF up my nice vibez! Yo Ariana come lemme gih u a high 5!!!!!!!! ✋???? https://t.co/YsNqYBZ8wA— Chun-Li (@NICKIMINAJ) May 28, 2018
And then the Arianators got down to business:

Just last month Ariana made her comeback to the big stage with her single No Tears Left To Cry off her upcoming album, Sweetener.
That single alone caused a raucous because Ariana changed the placement of her ponytail from high to low so it’s anyone’s guess how life-changing The Light Is Coming will be. (The name alone gives you some clues.)
Taking over The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon earlier this month, Ariana performed NTLTC live and despite the title, made a whole lot of people sob with her ridiculous vocal runs and range:
Sweetener is due out over the summer AKA our winter.
P.S Ariana’s apparently at Los Angeles’ Universal Studios Hogwarts with Pete Davidson right about now, according to extremely dedicated Arianators and also her Insta-story.
