When it comes to women supporting women, there may be no artist more supportive to her fellow legendary ladies than Ariana Grande.
The pop superstar has always been a collaborative artist — starting with her breakthrough single “The Way,” featuring Mac Miller, back in 2013 — and over the years, she’s been especially collaborative with her fellow female stars. In fact, she’s scored 12 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 with all-female collabs.
And her lucky 13th hit might come from Demi Lovato’s next album, Dancing With the Devil…The Art of Starting Over: Lovato confirmed in an interview Tuesday that she teamed up with her fellow Scooter Braun signee for a last-minute addition to the April 2 project.
Even outside the Hot 100, Grande teamed up with Missy Elliott for the Sweetener deep cut “Borderline,” Macy Gray for “Leave Me Lonely” from Dangerous Woman, and Lizzo for a “Good as Hell” remix (Lizzo earned full credit for that one, so it’s not in Ari’s chart history). Plus there’s the female-forward 2019 Charlie’s Angels soundtrack that Grande executive-produced, which, in addition to its lone Hot 100 hit, includes “Bad to You” with Normani and Nicki Minaj, “Got Her Own” with Victoria Monet, and “Nobody” with icon Chaka Khan.
Below, ahead of the release of her team-up with Lovato, find all of Ariana Grande’s Hot 100-charting collaborations with women — including one that just took home the Grammy this past weekend for best pop duo/group performance.
2014: “Problem” (feat. Iggy Azalea)
Grande enlisted the Australian MC for the lead single from her sophomore album, My Everything. The song peaked at No. 2 on the Hot 100 in June 2014.
2014: “Bang Bang” (Jessie J, Ariana Grande & Nicki Minaj)
The power trio peaked at No. 3 on the Hot 100 in October 2014 with this lead single from Jessie J’s third album, Sweet Talker.
2015: “Get On Your Knees” (Nicki Minaj feat. Ariana Grande)
The explicit Pinkprint track — which includes a co-writing credit from Katy Perry — wasn’t released as a single, but still hit the chart at No. 88 in January 2015.
2016: “Side to Side” (feat. Nicki Minaj)
The besties teamed up again for another top five hit, with the cheeky Dangerous Woman duet peaking at No. 4 in December 2016.
2018: “Bed” (Nicki Minaj feat. Ariana Grande)
Nicki again! This steamy track was from Minaj’s Queen album and peaked at No. 42 in August 2018.
2018: “The Light Is Coming” (feat. Nicki Minaj)
OK, this is the last Nicki entry… for now. The Pharrell-produced Sweetener song — complete with a prominent sample — peaked at No. 89 in August 2018.
2019: “Monopoly” (Ariana Grande & Victoria Monet)
The bouncy bop, released as a one-off treat following the success of Grande’s No. 1 hit “7 Rings,” peaked at No. 69 in April 2019. The lo-fi video is a perfect glimpse into tour life with these friends and collaborators.
2019: “Don’t Call Me Angel (Charlie’s Angels)” (Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus & Lana Del Rey)
When a pop princess, a raspy rocker, and a dream-pop enigma join forces, it’s a sure-fire hit: This lead cut from the Grande-produced Charlie’s Angels soundtrack peaked at No. 13 in September 2019.
2020: “Rain On Me” (Lady Gaga & Ariana Grande)
Gaga and Grande teamed up for the first time on this Chromatica electro-pop dream, which went all the way to No. 1 in June 2020. Oh! And it just picked up a Grammy at Sunday’s show for best pop duo/group performance.
2020: “Motive” (feat. Doja Cat)
This dance-pop collab has so far peaked at No. 32, following the November 2020 release of Grande’s sixth album, Positions. But it wouldn’t be the last time Ari and Doja joined forces…
2020: “Oh Santa!” (Mariah Carey feat. Ariana Grande & Jennifer Hudson)
Mariah Carey, the undisputed Queen of Christmas, invited some festive friends along for the sleigh ride with this new take on her holiday original “Oh Santa!,” which peaked at No. 76 in December 2020 following the release of Carey’s Apple TV+ Christmas special.
2021: “34+35” remix (feat. Megan Thee Stallion & Doja Cat)
Ariana called on Doja for another Positions look, this time teaming up with Megan Thee Stallion for a remix of the project’s second single, “34+35,” which peaked at No. 2 in January.
