In the video, shots of Andrea and Ariana in a gorgeous European city alternate with snippets of sunsets, evening sky and the galaxy all lit up. As she sings soulfully, Ariana drifts across a balcony in a pink tulle midi skirt and black top, her hair in her signature high ponytail. Bellissimo!
“E Più Ti Penso”, which translates roughly to “the more I think of you”, is a lovely Italian aria that was featured in the 1984 gangster movie Once Upon A Time In America and starred Robert DeNiro. Though the lyrics are in Italian, anyone can hear the emotion in the song, which tells the story of two lovers who are separated by a great distance and long for each other. Ariana is a lot younger than her singing partner — a la Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett — but just as Gaga and Tony meld, Ariana and Andrea complement each other beautifully. We can’t stop watching the picturesque video!
Ariana Grande & Chris Martin Team Up For Acoustic Performance
This isn’t the first time that Ariana has collaborated with a music legend. The “Problem” singer also teamed up with Chris Martin, 38, and Coldplay on Sept. 26 to sing “Just A Little Bit Of Your Heart” at the Global Citizen Festival in Central Park in New York City. For their version of the song, Ariana and Chris performed acoustically, and it was amazing! Ariana sounds great, no matter what genre she performs. We can see that with “E Più Ti Penso”!
