After their recent release of “Bed,” Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj are back with yet another collaboration “The Light is Coming.” Co-written and produced by Pharrell, the song will be on Grande’s upcoming album Sweetener, out on August 17. The track is pure pop perfection where Grande's powerhouse vocals harmoniously blend with Minaj's effortless flow. The "No Tears Left To Cry" singer gave fans a special preview performance of the single at iHeart Radio's Wango Tango earlier this year.
The release comes after Nicki’s tour announcement with Future and the premiere of another Ariana feature; the recently engaged singer also contributed vocals to the groovy single "Dance To This" on Troye Sivan's album Bloom. Still, no word yet on when we'll be getting a video for "The Light Is Coming," but we do have the music video teaser for "Bed" to tide us over. In it, the two besties play around in a bubble-filled pool without a care in the world. Listen to "The Light Is Coming" above and watch the steamy 1-minute clip below. Evidently, when it comes to a Grande/Minaj collaboration, it's a gift that keeps on giving.
