Ariana Grande has shared a stripped-down, quarantine version of her song ‘My Everything’. The pop star performed the song from the comfort of her own home while in quarantine due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. She was joined by producer Tommy Brown, who accompanied her on the piano over video chat.
Sharing the quarantine version on Twitter, Grande said: “tommy n i sending u some virtual love. hope you’re all staying safe, sane, healthy and as creative as possible.”

Taken from her second album of the same name, Grande strips back the original version of ‘My Everything’ back even further while also adding in a series of extra vocal runs. First released in 2014, the My Everything featured the hit singles, ‘Problem’, ‘Break Free’ and ‘Love Me Harder’, with the latter song featuring a contribution from The Weeknd.
Last month, Grande urged her fans to take the coronavirus pandemic more seriously, criticising what she called the “stupid and privileged” approach of many people not worried about the outbreak.
Posting on social media, the singer wrote: “I keep hearing from a surprising amount of people statements like ‘this isn’t a big deal’ / ‘we’ll be fine’… ‘we still have to go about our lives’ and it’s really blowing my mind. I understand if that is how u felt weeks ago, but please read about what’s going on – please don’t turn a blind eye.”
Meanwhile, Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande have sparked speculation that they have recorded a song together after fans found a “clue” in a birthday post. Grande took to Instagram last month to pay tribute to Gaga: “Happy birthday to a literal angel that has changed my life in many ways!”
She added: “I’ll tell you more about it later but… You make my heart feel so full and happy and understood. Wishing you all the joy in the world today and every day! Have some pasta.”
