Mac Miller and Ariana Grande first collaborated on the 2013 song "The Way" and Ari has a guest feature on Mac's upcoming album The Divine Feminine, but the two are more than frequent recording partners, as TMZ has obtained a photo of the two sharing a kiss while out for sushi.

Grande once dated Big Sean and the two produced some collaborations from that romance as well, most notably "Research" off Sean's Dark Sky Paradise. With Mac's album set to drop, all eyes and ears will be on that Ariana feature titled "My Favorite Part." There is as well a remix to Grande's "Into You" off her recently released Dangerous Woman that features Mac.

Sources close to the couple tell the celebrity news site that the two are in fact dating despite Mac downplaying the relationship in interviews. In April of 2013, Miller said "That's the homey. She's got a boyfriend and everything," of the singer after the two kissed in the video for "The Way."

In that same interview, Mac said, "Well she's a very, very talented singer, like she can sing incredibly. And, that's awesome and she's a great person. She's one of the nicest just people I've ever met in my life."

Mac's new album The Divine Feminine is scheduled to drop Sept. 16 via Warner. The lead single, "Dang!" featuring Anderson .Paak, is perhaps the best single the Pittsburgh MC has released to date. He dropped another song featuring CeeLo the other day, while fans patiently wait for the Kendrick Lamar collab included on the LP as well.
