Ariana Grande performs at 102.7 KIIS FM's Wango Tango 2016 at StubHub Center on May 14, 2016 in Carson, Calif.

Ariana Grande's added another memorable collaboration to her discography: the powerful R&B ballad "Leave Me Lonely" featuring Macy Gray, off her upcoming album Dangerous Woman. Macy Gray's distinctive husky voice is weaved throughout the haunting song, told from the point of view of a disenchanted lover. Right before its Beats 1 premiere, Grande said "Leave Me Lonely" holds a special place in her heart; she praised her collaboration with Gray, calling her "a legend."

"Her voice is so beautiful and soulful," Ariana said.

"Leave Me Lonely", which Ariana premiered sans Macy last month at the grand opening of the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, is the eighth song she's released on Apple Music off Dangerous Woman. In a strategy that's evolved from the Twitter-and-Instagram-based previews approach she took with My Everything, Ariana's dropped a number of tracks on Apple Music for streaming leading up to the May 20 release of her third studio album, from the disco-and-funk-flavored "Greedy" to collabs with Nicki Minaj ("Side to Side") and Future ("Everyday".)

"Leave Me Lonely" is now available on iTunes.
