Lining up perfectly with the weekend, pop star and Grammy-winner Ariana Grande dropped the “34+35 Remix” with Megan Thee Stallion and Doja Cat, officially available as of midnight on January 15, 2020. The original single is part of the 27-year-old’s sixth studio album, Positions, released on October 30, 2020. The new version is equally as spicy, sexy, and NFSW as the OG, but you already know that because you did the math, right?
Ahead of the song’s launch on Wednesday, January 13, the singer teased her 216 million Instagram followers with a GIF of a box TV that flashed “34+35 Remix” before showing three unmarked silhouettes. Fans assumed that one of those three were Grande and quickly got to work to figure out who the two unidentified artists were. Many speculated that the special guests were Doja Cat and Nicki Minaj, and some thought it could be R&B duo Chloe x Halle.
“How are you ALREADY making 2021 better this is insane,” one follower commented, summarizing what all of her fans were collectively thinking. She announced the mystery collab stars on Thursday, January 14, along with a countdown to the song’s release.
This is Grande’s first time collaborating with Megan Thee Stallion and her second time working with Doja Cat, who appears in the Florida native’s single, “Motive.” At the time of publishing (Friday, January 15 at 9 a.m.), the trio hasn’t unveiled a music video to supplement the remix, just an official lyric video with comic book-style graphics. At this point, it’s unclear if they will, and if they are planning on it, it’s definitely a secret. We promise to update you if and when it happens.
In the meantime, there’s no stopping you from watching the lyric video on repeat. Press play on the clip below to experience the epic three minutes in full, in the rare case you haven’t done so already.
