Troye Sivan released his music video  “Dance to This,” his latest single from his album “Bloom,” with a little help from Ariana Grande.

Sivan, 23, had teased a collaboration with Grande, 25, back in February.

“Yes!!! The rumours are trumours!! @arianagrande is my pop queen and i can’t wait for you guys to hear our song,” Sivan tweeted.

Now, the song’s music video has revealed just what the two pop stars had been recording this past winter.

In the video, Sivan visits a dreary community center and hands a CD to a man controlling the boombox. The music kicks in and Sivan begins to sing to an unenthusiastic crowd.

After the first chorus, Grande appears and seems to be the only person interested in the performance. She gets up and starts to sing and dance with Sivan as everyone else watches blankly.

The audience leaves and Sivan and Grande continue to have a dance party between the two of them complete with flashing lights.

Sivan explained that the video’s concept was based on a couple of famous musicals and the music video for “Pass This On” by the Knife.

“The DTT vid was inspired literally by High School Musical and Grease and Pass This On by the Knife and a gif of Cher spinning around that i cant find rn,” Sivan tweeted.
