Ariana Grande And Big Sean: A Timeline Of Their Relationship

Here's how coworkers became more than friends.

When we first heard Ariana Grande and Big Sean were working together, it was when the Detroit rapper was featured on her 2013 single “Right There.” But it looks like they’ve moved past the friendship and collaboration stage into something a little more… intimate. During the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, they were caught on camera holding hands backstage, sparking rampant speculation that that they’re a couple. Check out a timeline of Ariana and Big Sean’s relationship.

“Right There” Collaboration
In August 2013, Ariana debuted the single “Right There” from her debut album Yours Truly, featuring Big Sean. Of course, they weren’t together at the time, but it sure sounds like a bit of forecasting, doesn’t it? “Boy, you make me feel so lucky/ Finally the stars align,” she croons. “Cause you listen and you care/ You’re so different, no one compares.”

Sean’s lines, though they’re not meant literally, are pretty funny considering that he was there to pick up Ariana after she took a fall backstage at the 2014 VMAs. “If it all fell through, would you catch me before the pavement?” he raps. “If my Benz turned back to public transportation, would you still be at home for me with the candles waiting?”

On Stage Chemistry
In September 2013, Ariana and Sean hit the Nokia Theater stage in Los Angeles to perform “Right There” as part of The Listening Sessions Tour. The vibes were good, and this was only the beginning. Just three months later, they were together again to perform the song during Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve Party with Ryan Seacrest in New York. In April, shortly after Sean called off his engagement to Naya Rivera, he and Ariana also performed together at the White House for The 2014 Easter Egg Roll.
