Ariana Grande Shouts Out Rihanna's Fenty Beauty in New Song 'Make Up'
The Fenty Beauty account returned the love on Twitter.
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.
