New Music: Ariana Grande f/ Big Sean – ‘Best Mistake’

Big Sean and Ariana Grande

Oh God, Ariana Grande and Big Sean are back at it. Following last year’s hit “Right There,” the frequent collaborators/rumored couple show off their chemistry once again on the Key Wane-produced “Best Mistake,” which was released to iTunes on Monday night.

“‘Cause if the water dries up and the moon stops shining, stars fall, and the world goes blind / Boy, you know I’ll be saving my love for you / ‘Cause you’re the best mistake I’ve ever made,” sings Ariana on the tender R&B jam.

Sean responds by calling his girl a “goddess” and showing love to her mom. “When you start as friends, it’s hard to say you’re never going back / If I’m not the one, then I’m the best mistake you ever had.”

Ariana says the song is her favorite off her sophomore album My Everything, which arrives August 25.

In addition to Sean, the album features The Weeknd, Iggy Azalea, A$AP Ferg, and Childish Gambino.

    Pretty song…. beyond that, I don’t have much to say.

    Doesn’t really take me anywhere. Could be damn good if her vocals and emoting went had more oomph. Sounds like an incomplete left over in a sense.

    Finally, I realize Mariah doesn’t own the rights to this type of layering and ad-libbing, but this is Mariah 101.

    This is the first song I heard of hers where she isn’t singing very high! It’s giving me a Jhene Aiko vibe and I kinda like it though! It’s very chill. I could see myself smoking to this lol

    Agreed and I love Jhene also. The vibe is really nice.

    @Dantae, You hit it on the nail, more like Jhene and like Mariah when she hits that high points.

    #But to be totally honest it didn’t match up to the hype Rap-Up said lol

  9. Bianca

    Sooooooo this is everything. I don’t usually care much for her. But the vibe and sound of this song. I really enjoy. Idk how many songs they are going to make together but this one is for keeps.

    I really like the song. So excited for her album and cant believe how far this girl has become since the day she was just a cute red-head girl from Nickelodeon :)

    I think it’s good. It a nice slow jam and the beat is simple so the focus is more on the message of the song and Ariana’s vocals ( which blend beautifully with the music).


  12. Ebin

    Brandy vibe all over the song…love it.

    okay…super hard to admit this but…I’m feeling it. funny how the only other song I can put up with by her (and him) is the one with the Lil Kim Crush on You sample.

    this is super chill, very r&b and she doesn’t sound like some little Disney kid here. when her voice goes up I’m instantly turned off. not someone as a grown ass man I would wanna turn on.

    credit where it’s due…this was fire


  14. Raven-Symone

    Perfect timing to drop this. I love it!!

    I want ariana to do more songs like this. R&B vibe with a soothing sound. Huge fan, but don’t want pop!


  16. Tiffany

    Ariana is about to take over


  17. RoyalGee

    I love Ariana!!!


  18. Wow

    Very Smooth R&B. I love it!


  19. JD

    I like it. It’s cool. It isn’t the most exciting thing I’ve heard from her but I like this kinda sound from her so it might grow.


  20. Andy

    This is the second time Big Sean is ABSOLUTELY NOT NEEDED. Love it, Ariana you’re awesome.


  21. LaMont

    Ariana is DOPE as fuck! I love her!!!


  22. LetsBeReal

    Jhene vibe all over this song, real chill. Nice switch up from her usual high-noted, Mariah-esque route. I gotta admit I am feeling this record, she has talent overall.
