Mac Miller revives his soulful alter ego, “Larry Lovestein” to drop a rendition of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” with teen star, Ariana Grande.
Grande, who stars as Cat Valentine on the hit Nickelodeon television show Victorious, shows off her singing chops in this record with the Pittsburgh rapper.
Mac Miller originally debut his Larry Lovestein character in the free five-track EP he released earlier this year called You with his band called “The Velvet Revival.” If you do not have that EP, you can download that project right here.
This duet, originally recorded as a Christmas song that was written by Frank Losser, was popularized and covered by such artists as Ella Fitzgerald, Bing Crosby, Louis Armstrong, Ray Charles, Dionne Warwick, Dolly Parton, Rod Stewart, Cee-Lo Green, Christina Aguilera and many more.
This smoothed out version, which features Mac Miller on the piano keys, is one of the better non-rap records that Mac has put out lately. Get a listen to the record after the artwork and download it at the jump.
