Why Ariana Grande & Mariah Carey’s ‘Yes, And?’ Remix Is a Full-Circle Moment for the Diva Duo

With her dreamy pop songs and sky-high whistle tones, Ariana Grande has drawn comparisons to Mariah Carey since her music debut back in 2013. Of course, in the decade-plus since, Grande has made a massive, marquee name for herself — so it’s a bit of a full-circle moment that the two chart-topping divas have joined forces on the just-released remix of Grande’s “Yes, And?” single.

On the new Billboard Pop Shop Podcast, Katie & Keith are talking about why the remix makes so much sense, from the two artists’ longtime admiration for one another to the songs early-’90s-referencing production making sense for Carey’s early-’90s origin.
