Ariana Grande blessed us with her sixth studio album, Positions, on October 30, and it’s no surprise that seven of the songs featured on it were written by her longtime friend and frequent collaborator Victoria Monét. Ariana and Victoria’s friendship dates back to the singer’s Nickelodeon days as Cat Valentine on Victorious. In fact, Victoria is responsible for some of Ariana’s biggest hits including “My Everything”, “Thank U, Next” and “7 Rings”. In 2017, Victoria also served as the opening act for Ariana’s Dangerous woman tour, and they even have a song together called “Monopoly”.
In a 2019 interview with NME, Victoria explained what it was like to work with Ariana, saying it was “easy” and “really fun”. She added: “We have been friends for so long … I imagine us [in the future] really be old ladies who talked the way he did. ‘Do you remember when we did’ Thanks, then? ‘Do you remember when we shot here? You know, just having tea parties. It will be an eternal thing. Whether it’s working on stage or writing songs together, it’s clear Ariana and Victoria are the ultimate dream team! See some of their cutest moments to come.
