Mika and Ariana Grande remix 'Wicked' song 'Popular'

Posted on

“Popular” isn’t actually the most popular song from Broadway’s ten-years-running phenomenon Wicked (that honor belongs to “Defying Gravity”), but it’s certainly one of the most hummable ditties in the show.

And now British singer Mika, that lover of Grace Kelly and purveyor of rainbow lollipops, has teamed up with post-Nickelodeon pop star Ariana Grande to release a radio-ready remix of the song, which originally appeared on his third album The Origin of Love with a more eclectic arrangement (and a few more expletives) than the one embedded here.

Mika recently performed the track with original Wicked star Kristin Chenoweth in New York City, but Ariana Grande — unlike most TV starlets-turned-singers — actually has a pretty impressive set of pipes, too. Give the song a listen, and watch the Mad Hatter-esque clip below:
