Stevie Wonder and Ariana Grande keep the “Faith” on their new collaboration.
Produced by Ryan Tedder and Benny Blanco, the feel-good tune from the animated film Sing allows Wonder to break into classic Stevie. “See the girl with the diamonds on her shoes?” he sings. “She walks around like she’s got nothin’ to lose / Yes, she’s a go-getter, she’s everybody’s type / She’s a queen of the city, but she don’t believe the hype.”
Following the legendary singer, Grande delivers some stunning vocals of her own. “See the boy with the Stevie Wonder swag?” she sings. “Ain’t got a clue all the magic that he has / He’s a go-getter, he’s everybody’s type / I’ma make it my mission, make him feel alright / He’s a twelve on a ten point, rockin’ out to his joint / Just say the word ’cause I can sing all night.”

During a recent appearance on “The Tonight Show,” Ariana gushed about collaborating with her idol. “I’m done now,” she said. “I’m good now…That’s it for me. Not only did I get to sing with him, but we were in the same booth…me and Stevie Wonder arm-in-arm, holding hands in the booth, singing together, laughing, having a good time.”
The soundtrack to Sing will be available on Dec. 9, while the movie hits theaters on Dec. 21.
