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.

So Tyler, what was it like to get invited to collaborate with Bergdorf and Artsy?

It [was] really exciting! I didn't know Artsy even knew about me or what I was doing [so] I felt like I had to do it.

 

Can you walk me through the concepts you used for these works?

A lot of what I shot is personal. It's all kind of a mixture. It's very documentary and simple, spur of the moment ideas about black masculinity. It's kind of symbolic and the way I chose to install it looks at doubles and singles of Black men that I've cast over the past year or so. The shots themselves use styling, posing, [and] symbolism to talk about connection and visibility amongst Black men.

And you guys famously hung out in Cape Cod gay-mecca Provincetown with a whole crew that included photographers Nan Goldin and David Armstrong. 

We were drunk and high all the time in Provincetown. I was only there one summer and I lived with Mark and Stephen Tashjian. We did wild things, like hit the streets in ridiculous outfits and put on performances on the street corner. That was the summer I met David Armstrong, and at that time, he was probably 27, but to me, I thought, here’s this old queen who had really lived it, and he knows everyone. I felt privileged to know him, and I thought, What could I find out from him? It felt like we were receiving information that was important to have and that only an older generation had.
