Ariana Grande and Big Sean are going public with their relationship.

The unsuspecting couple was spotted holding hands backstage at Sunday’s VMAs following her win for Best Pop Video for “Problem.” The singer and rapper were all smiles as they made their way down the hall at L.A.’s Forum.

Before taking their relationship to the next level, the longtime friends collaborated on Ariana’s 2013 single “Right There” and “Best Mistake” off her latest album My Everything.

“Ariana Grande is somebody I’ve known for a minute now,” Sean told Rap-Up TV last year. “We were just homies, just cool. We’re from two different worlds. I’m like a rapper from Detroit and she’s from Florida.”

Sean called off his engagement to “Glee” star Naya Rivera in April and Ariana recently split with Jai Brooks of The Janoskians.

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.
