Ariana Grande Shouts Out Rihanna's Fenty Beauty in New Song 'Make Up'

The Fenty Beauty account returned the love on Twitter.

It's no secret that Ariana Grande is obsessed with Rihanna's Fenty Beauty makeup line, but now she has a song to officially proclaim her love.

Ari dropped a line about Fenty Beauty in her Thank U, Next track appropriately titled "Make Up," a flirty play on words about kissing and making up. The Fenty shout-out comes in the song's third verse: "Promise me that when you kiss my lips, you'll make it stick/ That’s the way to shut me up after an argument/ No eyeliner on, but looking at you is the fix/ Highlight of my life, just like that Fenty Beauty kit."

Grande hinted at her Fenty Beauty tribute in January, when the makeup brand re-posted a video of the singer freaking out about some new Fenty goodies, to which Ariana responded, "wait til u hear 'make up.'"

Naturally, when the track arrived on Feb. 8 along with the rest of the album, Fenty quickly found the reference and tweeted at Ari. "When @ArianaGrande said Highlight of my life, just like that Fenty Beauty kit on 'make up' y'all KNOW we felt that," the brand tweeted, adding a heart emoji and the hashtag #thankunext. Looks like the love is mutual.
