The singer gives solo performances of hits 'Problems', 'Break Free' and 'Bang Bang' before being joined by Childish Gambino for their collaboration 'Break Your Heart Right Back'.
Ariana Grande took over the "Today" show on Friday, August 29. Gracing the stage at the Rockefeller Plaza in New York, the singer performed some tracks from her newly-released album "My Everything".
Grande wrapped her figure in a silver crop-top, a matching skirt and a pair of matching stilettos. At her mini-concert, she gave the solo performances of "Problem" and "Break Free" which originally feature Iggy Azalea and Zedd, respectively.
She also played "Bang Bang" sans collaborators Jessie J and Nicki Minaj before tackling "Break Your Heart Right Back". For the latter song, she's joined onstage by Childish Gambino.
During her visit to the show, Grande also sat down for an interview with Matt Lauer. She talked about her career and how she remained grounded. "I spend a lot of time with my family. ... I just have to constantly remind myself how lucky I am to do what I love," she told the host.
When asked about her love life, the petite diva who's been rumored dating frequent collaborator Big Sean said, "Oh my goodness, y'all are putting me on the spot! I'm happy."
"My Everything", marking Grande's second studio effort, was released earlier this week and was preceded by three Billboard Hot 100's top 10 songs. The follow-up to last-year's "Yours Truly" has been predicted to make its debut at No. 1 on next week's Billboard 200 chart with 150,000-170,000 copies sold.
