Ariana Grande joins Norwegian producer/DJ Cashmere Cat for an effervescent new ballad, “Quit.” The track will appear on Cashmere Cat’s debut album, 9, which arrives April 28th.
On “Quit,” Grande details a troubled relationship that neither party wants to end. “I can’t quit you/ Yeah I’m gonna regret it.” Cashmere Cat’s production begins with a keyboard progression and builds to a deft drop that introduces a tropical house-inspired instrumental hook.
Grande and Cashmere Cat first collaborated on “Be My Baby” from the former’s 2014 LP, My Everything. The pair reunited the following year when Grande sang on Cashmere Cat’s single, “Adore.”
In addition to Grande, 9 will feature guest appearances from the Weeknd, Ty Dolla $ ign, Selena Gomez, Camila Cabello, Jhené Aiko and more. Over the past few years Cashmere Cat has released a string of singles and EPs while producing for an array of artists including Kanye West, Charli XCX, Miguel, Britney Spears and Travis Scott. He also contributed significantly to the Weeknd’s last album, Starboy.
