Watch Ariana Grande Perfectly Rap Nicki Minaj's "Side to Side" Verse


Ariana Grande stopped by The Tonight Show Thursday night to perform her new Nicki Minaj collaboration, "Side to Side." Nicki wasn't on hand for the performance, so Ariana decided to take on the rapper's verses herself, as the Roots handled the track's reggae-fused beat in the back.

During her sit down with host Jimmy Fallon, she also announced her upcoming Dangerous Woman Tour in support of her latest album. "I'm very excited. I can't wait to get on the road again." The 36-date tour kicks off February 2 in Phoenix, Ariz. and will find her on the road stopping at cities like New York, Boston, and Chicago through April 15 when she caps the whole thing off in Orlando, Fla. Look out for international dates to be announced soon.

The singer also took a moment to plug her new animated movie, Sing, which will include a song from her and Stevie Wonder on the soundtrack. "Not only did I get to sing with him, but we were in the same booth, so it was like, me and Stevie Wonder arm-in-arm, holding hands in the booth, singing together, laughing, having a good time," she explained. "Every time I got comfortable with the fact that I was in a booth, arm-in-arm with Stevie Wonder, he would hit a Stevie run, and I'd be like, 'Oh, shit, that's Stevie Wonder.'"

The pair tested the strength of their relationship with the "Best Friend Box Challenge," where they had to guess personal details about one another, which it turned out was not very well. In other news, Ariana also just reunited with Mac Miller on a song off his new album, which you can check out here.
