17 Truly Weird Musical Collaborations That Actually Worked
Ariana Grande & Seth MacFarlane
Ariana Grande and Seth MacFarlane could really be considered regular collaborators at this point, following their 2016 Roger & Hammerstein’s Cinderella mashup with another Broadway blast in Apple Music’s Carpool Karaoke a year later. Real fans know that Ari got her start in 13 The Musical on Broadway and has never shied away from her theatre-kid roots, but it’s always a surprise when the mastermind behind Family Guy shows his soft, gooey Sinatra center. Seth has released five traditional pop albums (which is what the Recording Academy likes to call swing music and sh*t that sounds like it was made in the 1940s), three of which have received Grammy nominations. This unlikely duo belts in harmony and reminds us that you can have clout and still be a drama nerd.
