While Ariana Grande and Big Sean may or may not be dating, they're definitely collaborating on a single from her new album, and it's a good one.

The rapper, who merely whispered in the background on Ariana’s smash hit “Problem,” gets a full verse in the singer’s latest release, “Best Mistake" ...

Ariana’s most recent songs such as "Problem," "Break Free" and “Bang Bang,” are up-tempo and energetic, but “Best Mistake” is more of a slow jam.

With its gentle, yet intense piano and her strong, but mellow vocals, critics have called it the most mature track of the young songbird's career.

Grande's vocals have drawn comparisons to Mariah Carey, and unlike her past few singles, you can see here why some people have made that leap.

Her powerful, understated stylings are nicely complimented by Sean's laid back approach to rhyming, and the chemistry on "Best Mistake" is palpable.

Wonder why that might be ...

When songbird Ariana Grande released her new song “Break Free,” a lot of attention was paid to its Star Wars inspired lyric video, as well as its EDM influences.

It also raised eyebrows with its lyrics, which make no damn sense.

Don't blame Ariana, though, for gems like “Now that I’ve become who I really are” and “I only wanna die alive,” because producer Max Martin made her do it.

“I fought him on it the whole time,” Grande says. “‘I am not going to sing a grammatically incorrect lyric, help me, God!’ Max was like, ‘It’s funny - just do it!'"

Begrudgingly, she agreed, but Grande, whose My Everything album drops this month, says "I know it’s funny, but grammatically incorrect things make me cringe.”

“I was like, whatever, let’s do it and have some fun ... I need to shake it off and let it go and be a little less rigid and old. I’m like 90. I need to not be that old!”

As for the new song's message, grammar issues aside?

Ariana Grande dressed as a sexy space vixen on Twitter to tease the release of her new single "Break Free" last week.

Now the rising pop star is keeping the galactic theme going with a Star Wars-themed lyric video for her forthcoming hit. 

Ariana recently debuted the newest track from her upcoming album, My Everything, and the spacey lyric video she posted to YouTube is sure to appeal to fans who are already counting down the days until the Episode VII release date.

The clip kicks off with the iconic quote, "A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away." The lyrics then zoom through space in a font and angle that's sure to be familiar to George Lucas devotees.

Sadly, while Ariana dropped F-bombs aplenty during a recent MTV appearance, her new song is entirely profanity-free.

KABOOM!

No, that isn't the sound of July 4 fireworks arriving a day early. It's the sound Ariana Grande made Wednesday while performing live on MTV.

During a round of Hip-Hop Mix-Up on a special titled “Total Ariana Live,” Grande sang A$AP Rocky‘s “F-ckin’ Problems” in Broadway style... that also incorporated F Bomb after F Bomb.

The artist asked producers to bleep her out, but the censors couldn't keep up, leading to a curse-laden performance captured below on camera:

OOPS! Perhaps this selfie-obsessed singer should stick to taking self-portraits.

Cats are taking over the Internet.

This has been the case for years now, we know, but the last few weeks have given us a cat who plays Jenga and a cat who saves the life of a boy being attacked by a dog.

Also, cats who keep the beat to Lil Jon's "Turn Down for What."

Now, we present cats creating their own version of Ariana Grande's smash hit, "Problem."

The lyrics have been changed in the most purr-fect of ways, making this a must-listen for pet lovers around the globe. Enjoy!

It doesn't get much cuter than that...

... or does it?!?

Musicians are forever pushing the envelope, honing their crafts, stretching their limits.

Or they're just trying to get as many #1 hits as possible in order to sell more records and make more money to buy big cribs with multi-car garages and basketball courts in the basement.

To that end, artists frequently collaborate with other artists to experiment with style and sound. Sometimes they cross the genre lines and what results is... unexpected. 

Nearly an entire season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta was dedicated to Kandi Burruss' quest for songwriting credits in Country music and she teamed up with Sara Evans to make it happen.

Some of these collaborations are wildly more successful than others, but when rap meets country or when pop meets metal, it feels weird. So weird it's good.

Here are 11 weird musical collaborations that totally work. Get ready to groove!

Academy Award winner Juicy J's inclusion on Katy Perry's "Dark Horse" made the song sure to be a hit instead of a, well, dark horse.

It's Ariana Grande's world. The rest of us are just living in it. At least it's shaping up that way in 2014 as she continues her domination of the charts.

After conquering iTunes and becoming one of the fastest-selling singles of all time, "Problem" now has an official, retro-glamorous music video.

Check out Ariana's collaboration with Iggy Azalea below!

The Sam & Cat actress has always possessed vocal talent that has even drawn Mariah Carey comparisons, but you can forget about labeling her.

"Problem" is a clear attempt to evolve beyond her good-girl persona ... or at least prove that a good girl can still look hot in revealing leather outfits.

In the video, Ariana Grande rocks a black and white skirt, crop top and now-signature white knee-high boots that have become staples of her live performances.

Looking fierce as ever as she belts out the sexy track, Ariana is joined by up-and-coming rapper Iggy Azalea, who spits game with the best of them.

After selling over 435,000 copies of her smash single "Problem" in its first week of released, Ariana Grande is readying a music video featuring Iggy Azalea.

The monochromatic clip, directed by Young Astronaut, features the ladies in all their glory, with rocking big hair and mod inspired outfits. Take a look below:

Ariana Grande and Iggy Azalea

“Problem,” which debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, is the first single off Grande's still-untitled sophomore album, due out in August.

She's been promoting it like a madwoman, and while Luke Bryan may be bored and Rihanna may laugh at her, those sales are certainly no joke.

The music video theme carries on from the lyric video (below).

“It was really cool,” Iggy Azalea said. “It’s in the same theme."

"We are not going to be killing people in a lyric video and then do bubble gum or something in the video, it’s the same realm. It’s kind of mod and monochromatic."

"Mod girl would be the theme, I would say to the whole film.”

Take a listen to it after the jump ...
